Updates to 1,000 Chapters Project
30th Jun, 2010

I've been messing about with the code of the gallery to try an make it easier to navigate and find what you are looking for. I have divided the main gallery into three (for now) subcategories: Canon, DIY, and MIA. Canon lists all the known official canon chapters that appear in GW material. DIY lists all the non-canon chapters made up by fans that have an Index Astartes (IA). The last subcategory is a bit of a limbo as it lists all the non-canon chapters that are missing an IA (MIA). I'm currently trying to hunt down all the IA for the MIA chapters. If you have any information please post in this thread over on Bolter and Chainsword: = Request for links to Chapter IA =

Hearing feedback is very important to me in developing my ideas. Much of my designs are inspired, and crafted, by chatting to fans on forums before snowballing into a full concept you'll find here. I would like to thank all those who have contributed critiques and participated in discussions over the years, and I would especially like to thank all those who commented on this specific topic. If you would like join in, you are most welcome!

    Interesting project and great work. I've found mention of a Chapter not included in the list.

    The latest Codex Blood Angels, on page 54, mentions the Exsanguinators, of course a BA successor Chapter.

    It's said they were "fatally undone by their gene-seed", exactly like Flesh Eaters. Since you've included Flesh Eaters in your list (probably assuming, fairly enough in my opinion, that "fatally undone" doesn't necessarily means "extinct and not active right now"), you'll be probably interested in this.

    I don't think there is any other info about this Chapter: it's probably just one of the many names GW throws in without any real intent to develop the matter. Still, I'm not sure about this end, if somebody can correct me, much better.

      Thanks for this. I found a mention of them over on the Lexicanum - 5th edition Blood Angels codex. I've updated the gallery to include them.

    By the way, where are chapters such as the Astral/Tiger Claws and the Wolf Brothers?

    • Philip S says:

      The 1,000 chapter project is for collecting up the current 1,000 chapters of the Imperium. The Astral/Tiger Claws and the Wolf Brothers will be included in a later project detailing all the lost chapters to the Imperium, be they renegades, chaos worshippers, disbanded, KIA etc.

      There are some errors in the list which will be corrected once we get to closer to 1,000.
