Default New Chapter...Sort of

hey i started Space marines a while a go and i really didnt know what chapter to be....i was going to be salamanders but after i got the green color down i realized, "hell im going to be irish marines!!" anyways i have a question.
if i put a miniature bagpipe model on one of my standard bearers instead of a flag, could it still have the same rules and bonuses as the flag does? ???
Thanks
Majesty

"The sound of the bagpipes rallied the men to victory..."

Not if you were doing an Irish one, but maybe a Scottish!

Yes, as long as you tell your opponent that's what it's for. Although Lagatus Glacies is right, why do you want one on an Irish marine?

Why not a marine carrying a gigantic keg on his back and distributing pints everywhere?

Don't go Scotts, that's for sure. Plaid skirts would be bloody difficult to paint on models! A keg though, that's an excellent idea.

Using a bagpipe instead of a banner is not only totally acceptable, its actually a really cool idea!

The banner represents the chapters honour and provides a rallying point for the marines. Depending on what kind of world they come from its totally feasible that they'd put a lot of importance on an instrument, and that noise will certainly be a rallying point!

Just make sure your opponent knows what it is.
