Normally my blog is a pure hobby blog. No politics what so ever! But I have to write this text here as I am quite upset about reactions on Facebook about pictures and caption Text I posted there . The pictures show the first three finished Space Marines of my DIY chapter. You can see them here:
In complete ignorance ( of course my fault) I gave them the name White Knights and based them on the fraternity of the medieval German crusader Knights. So they are white and display a black cross. The cross I chose for them is a so called Krückenkreuz to set them apart from the Black Templars chapter who display a maltese cross.
So far so good I thought. Now what happened on Facebook was this: I was accused of being right wing white and would be close to the KKK as they are also known as White knights which I didn’t know.
So to put it right: I have nothing to do with the KKK and I am far from being rightwing, as people who know me personally will tell you right away!
To set this right I have renamed my chapter. They will no longer be known as White Knights but as Galactic Knights from now on. Alas I will keep the background story as I am from Germany and I wanted to do a chapter of Space Marines who have a german background.
I hope this sets it strait and I can return to my hobby now . Politics off!
