Brazen Skulls Chapter Colour Scheme as displayed by a Firstborn Space Marine.

The Brazen Skulls was a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown Founding and origin.

Its only notable engagement was when it took part in the Sabbat Worlds Crusade against the forces of Chaos in support of the reincarnated Saint Sabbat.

The Brazen Skulls were eventually wiped out as a Chapter in the Sabbat Worlds by 773.M41.

Despite the extinction of the Chapter during that crusade, their name, colours and heraldry were reinstated during the Ultima Founding, and thus all of their number are now Primaris Space Marines.

The Brazen Skulls are determined to live up to the honour of their lost forebears and have swiftly earned a reputation for heroism, tenacity and all-consuming hatred for the forces of Chaos.

Chapter Appearance

Chapter Colours

The Brazen Skulls primarily wear blue power armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest, as well as the helmet and shoulder plate trim, were bronze. The shoulder plates were black.

The bronze squad specialty symbol -- battleline, close support, fire support, Veteran or command -- was indicated on the right shoulder plate.

A white High Gothic numeral centred on the squad specialty symbol indicated squad number.

The colour of the left knee guard indicated company number in accordance with the Codex -- i.e. White (1st Company), Yellow (2nd Company), Red (3rd Company), etc. A white High Gothic numeral centred on the left knee guard also indicated company number.

The Brazen Skulls' Chapter badge was a large bronze skull centred on a field of sable.
