I think the only area where you might find something like that is most likely something indian or arabic.
Space Sharks are already Maori and Rainbow warriors kind of have been shoehorned into the aztec and incan thing recently.

The American South absolutely had a Warrior Culture and Military Tradition pre-Civil War. Your family honor and social standing was highly dependent on having served at LEAST in the local militia, if not the US (And later CS) Armed Forces. Otherwise, you just weren't a man of honor. The massive social breakdown of the American South during Reconstruction (some of which was self-inflicted by the new generation of Southerners, though much was at the hands of Northern carpetbaggers and political groups) removed much of that warrior culture, but even today Southerners serve in the military at a disproportionately high rate second only to Native Americans because of it.

The Rainbow Warriors name came from the Greenpeace ship, ostensibly as a reference to the same native american legend the ship was named after.

... Except it turns out the 'legend' was made up by some evangelist applying stereotypical indian imagery to his interpretation of the book of revelations- the natives didn't fall for it, but Greenpeace did.

From the examples given in this thread I think it needs to be pointed out Space Marines work best when based upon pre-modern warrior societies. Modern ones are more suited to Guard regiments.

Of the modern western countries I think America is the most possible, but even then it's a stretch and it's mostly because of the South. I think it's hard to be a modern, post-enlightenment democratic republic as well as a martial society, so the South trying to replicate ancient Sparta is as close as it gets.

It parallels the degeneration of Scandinavia almost perfectly.

I'd even argue against the point of the South being closer to bringing a warrior culture into the US. I would define a warrior culture as one who is internally and externally defined by putting a warrior mentality as the pinnacle of society. And while they do glorify war and the general soldiery a bit more than the rest of the country, it's still nowhere near that. Aside from the general "God, Guns, and Patriotism" mentality, the majority still doesn't push themselves to be warriors/warfighters/militias/etc. The vast majority of Americans are better defined by the "Thanks for your service, I really appreciate it, and thought about joining, but [insert excuse here]."

Ancient cultures have some neat ones:

Germanic tribes: plenty of (power) spears, the night-walkers tribe becoming a scout unit or terror squad. The Cimbri migrations rampaged roman territory for years and defeated several roman armies.

Speaking as a North Carolinian here, yeah.

We join the military not out of patriotism, but because our parents have been unemployed since the mills closed 30 years ago and no one figured out what else the South could be useful for, we live in a culture of anti-intellectualism so no one bothers to improve their situation by caring about their education, and therefore the best jobs we can hope for are fast food.

Or the military, so that we can still be useless, but occasionally get shot at. But hey, if you don't get shot, you get to automatically demand respect from the plebs back home, because "they didn't go". It's like the easy button for social capital for people who weren't worth a damn at home.

In Europe the Canadians hit a long string of engagements against entrenched and prepared enemies, primarily SS - resulting in long, bloody struggles. At Normandy a Canadian light infantry group discovered the bodies of 20 illegally executed Canadian POWs, deducing (and later proving) they'd been executed by the SS. There is no official correlation between that incident and the proportionately low number of SS POWs captured alive by Canadians subsequently.

Canada only really began cultivating its modern peace-loving reputation after WW2, but even that is greatly exaggerated when compared to the US' bluster.

Guys, once again, these are Imperial Guard material, not Space Marine material.

Space Marines are inspired by images of WARRIOR cultures, where the focus is on individual prowess, glory, and strength. Imperial Guard are inspired by SOLDIER cultures, where the focus is on discipline and tactics. Swiss and Israelis are great inspiration for Guard Regiments, they don't make good inspiration for Marin Chapters.

>> No.47743156

oh but romans do? wtf are you on about man

>> No.47743207

The focus is on the individual capabilities. The IMAGE Ultramarines are inspired by is that of A legionnaire, not the entire legion. Part of that is being able to work together, but it isn't what they're about. It's about their ABILITY to work together, and their personal fortitude, and their personal discipline, and how they synchronize.

If your image of a certain culture is of a single warrior, with a close up on their face and equipment, their armor shining in high resolution, it's a Space Marine culture. If it's on an image of a big army marching in unison, it's a Guard culture. That's why there are no Marine chapters based on the red army or the Wehrmacht, and conversely, no Guard regiments based on the vikings.
