Default Designs for my Waaagh! banner

My Waaagh! banner is almost finished building-wise, it comprises 3 black reach space marines next to each other on top of a pole, above them is a big sort of metal rectangle thing which the word Waaagh! will be written on.

[___]=banner bit [__]
0=marine 000
I=banner I
N=nob NI

This is a very vague representation of what it looks like but what colour space marines should I put on top of the banner.

I want 3 different space marine chapters, preferably ones that Aren't much liked by greenskins (if ultramarines is one of them then that is good)

Which chapters and what order should they be in?
I might try and post a picture at some point

When I think of Space Marine Chapters who have had some bad experiences with Orks, the first one I think of is definitely the Crimson Fists. Rynn's World left the Crimson Fists utterly decimated. Another Chapter that I can think of would be the Black Templars. They suffered at the hands of the Orks on Armageddon, taking quite a few losses as detailed in the poorly written BL books Crusade for Armageddon and Conquest of Armageddon. A third would be (somewhat) the Ultramarines. I remember some fluff about them always trying to launch preemptive strikes to cripple growing Waaghs before they power through their happy little Realm of Ultramar. :P

Hope that helps,

Well, Chapters who are very frequently in battle with greenskins, and thus would deserve their ire could probably be:

-Salamanders
-Black Templars
-Dark Angels

Though, just about every Chapter have fought the Orks on several occations so Beakies are hated in general...
The three alternatives I have based on fluff/stories.

The Salamanders gave the Orks a savage beating on Armageddon.

The Black Templars also fought on Armageddon, and also in several other theatres of war.

The Dark Angels, through grudges with Nazdreg and Ghazghkull.

Very good ideas but as this is on the Waaagh! banner, it needs to look good as well, 3 nice colours that fit together AND have a history of Ork hating, I took a long look at pictures of world flags for flags that are three vertical stripes to see what colours look good, bright colours would probably be best so they really stand out in my relatively dark, dull snakebite colours

What are some marine armies you face alot?

For bright colors with some Ork history involved...


Ultramarines
Imperial Fists
???

For a good third color maybe Blood Angels. Or White Scars. Not that they have much to do with Orks.

I'd have one as Blood angels (so the nob goes faster!).
Another as Ultramarines, (because they are Ultramarines).
And the last as Imperial Fists (because the colour combination would look nice).

OK, red yellow and blue, sounds good
Don't sit around waiting for the finished product, it will take a very long time, I usually like to have full units before painting so I need 2 new nobz boxes

Does it matter what you use to make a Waaagh banner? I think all the bits I have they are supposed to just be boss poles, but can i just throw some flair on them and say they are banners?

Totally up to you how you do it. Your suggestion is perfectly fine. The fluff for the Waaagh! banner is that it has near-religious significance to the Orks and they fight harder in its presence, how that's modeled is totally open to anyone.

Is there any reason then that you couldnt make a Waaaagh banner, and then also count it as a boss pole? Inspire the orks with it but when they get out of line smack em with it?
Sorry not trying to hijack your thread Cammerz.
