White Templars Astartes

White Templars Chapter Colour Scheme

The White Templars is a Loyalist Codex Astartes-compliant Space Marine Chapter once believed to have descended from the lineage of the Imperial Fists, created during an unknown Founding.

The White Templars' Chapter homeworld is the planet named Sanctum, located in the Segmentum Solar. Almost nothing else is known about the Chapter in Imperial records.

The White Templars are stoic and relentless in their prosecution of the foe. Though for a time it was thought that they were Imperial Fists successors, recent discoveries by Administratum genetoria-logi have thrown substantial doubt upon this claim.

The White Templars have been shaken by this revelation, and have launched a star-spanning Imperial Crusade to discover the truth.

Chapter Appearance

Chapter Colours

The White Templars wear predominately white Power Armour. The Aquila or Imperialis on the chest guard, as well as the inset of the shoulder plates are black. The white squad specialty symbol -- Tactical, Devastator, Assault or Veteran -- is located on the right shoulder plate.

A black Roman numeral is stenciled in the centre of the squad specialty symbol, indicating squad number. A black Roman numeral stenciled on the left knee guard indicates company number.

Chapter Badge

The White Templars' Chapter badge is a white, eight-pointed cross-crosslet, centred on a field of black.
