The White Scars are yet another Space Marine Chapter that does not get enough attention these days. Like the pic above, there are some excellent pictures of them, and a few that fall into some of my favorite overall for Warhammer 40k.  I figured here was a good time to get them out into the open with their own Pics of the Week.

Pics of the Week happen every Tuesday where I share from my Warhammer pic library. I collect these all the time from all over, and sharing them is just fun.

The White Scars were Legion V of the original twenty Space Marine Legions of the First Founding. Their Primarch is Jaghatai Khan. During the Horus Heresy the White Scars remained loyal to the Emperor, after which they reorganized and split into Chapters. Drawing on the tribal savagery of their homeworld, the White Scars practice a highly mobile method of warfare, tearing into their enemies with lightning-quick attacks and vanishing before a response can be made.


  1. I like the White Scars paint scheme and speed style army, I'm not so sure I like the Mongolian Culture aspect of the Legion. Dunno why, it just never appealed to me. It's in the same lines that I think the Space Wolves are really cool...I just hate the Wolf aspect.

  2. I love their concept, but their fluff has never been developed properly for mine. Also, I hate all white colour schemes...

    I have seen a brilliant alternate paint scheme where the armour was crimson with white scar-like smears of paint across their face and chest. Kinda like the uruk hai in LOTR. made them much more threatening.
