Default The Dark Knights chapter (batman themed army)

After watching the batman movie with jack nicholson and michael keaton, i thought it would be awesome to make a space marine chapter themed after batman. for example

-scouts would be painted like robin

-the rhinos would be batmobiles. also is the bat speeder, and the bat raider, bat bikes, batnought, bat crusader, etc

- power armoured space marines are painted like batman's costume, with greenstuffed bat ears on the top of helmets.

-all vehicles, terminator armor and power armor will have the bat symbol stenciled on the shoulder pads or doors

-opponents can have special adversairy charachters (joker, penguin, ra's al ghoul, scarecrow, two face).

so, whadya think?

That would be incredibly cool. You could replace the jump troops jet pack with a big green stuff cape. I would assume that this would be a close combat army. It isn't the dark knight's style to shoot people, he would much reather beat them up. You could even fashion some Gotham style scenery. You need to get on this and post pictures when you are done.

Oh yeah, sweet idea. Remodel the Chaplains croizus to have a bat on top maybe, even if you don't use him, it'll be cool.

You can use bat wings from a Night Lords squad for the crozius idea. This is a great idea(we all know Batman is the coolest superhero). Batman (your chapter master) should have every piece of wargear, signifying the amazing powers of his utility belt ;D j/k

I do admit that Scouts painted as Robin freak me out.

HAHAHAHAHAH... Yes Batman is by far the greatest super hero. I mean whats super power is more powerful than money... and good looks.
And to quote one of my favorite commercials of all time:

Quote:
Bizarro Superman- What about utility belts?
Death ray(or whatever is name is, I cant remember)- Batman and Robin have utility belts.
Cheetah girl person(fergot her name too)- I want a magic lasso.
Toy man- I demand more toys!
Lex Luther-Silence! Right now my brainwash machine is taking control of the justice league...What is it Brainiac?
Braniac-All I want is some pants. A DECENT PAIR OF PANTS!
Solomon Grundi- SOLOMON GRUNDI WANT PANTS TOO!
I really hope someone knows what I'm talking about.
Anyways you need utility belts.

other ideas

-servitors would look like alfred

-familiars would be bat swarms

-special wargear: nightvision, batarangs, grappling hook (grappling hooks never stop becoming cool) nipple suit: any units assaulting must make leadership :P

-commisioner gordan for the techpriest, or oracle as the techpriest

now where can i find batmobles (any batman movie version) that are to 40k scale?

Batman is cool but Spider man is better ( not the second movie though big disapoitment). Imagin what a ninja Turtle themed Ork army would look like.

no way, man...batman is possibly THE greatest super-hero, on the grounds that's he's a super-hero without even having super abilities
