Is it legal in tournaments to use Marneus Calgars rules to represent an Iron Hands chapter champion? I would model him as a techmarine with the servo harness as the two powerfists and replace the twin linked plasma pistols with twin linked bolters. And i would also put an honour guard in each squad and model them to look something like a techmarine.
I was just wondering thanks in advance.
I'd say not.. the rules for special characters are balanced based on the rest of the force they accompany. mixing them like that is generally a no-no, especially at tournaments.
I don't really see why not, as long as all the stuff on him is WYSIWYG and you aren't using the marneus calgar rules (just using iron hands rules, not any special rules calgar would get) Edit- but yes miril is right, you can't use the rules for calgar as special characters can't be mixed and matched.

Ask yourself why in the world would you trust a win loss record? Playing them yourself is the only way to tell.
The true joy in the game is playing down to the last model, no matter the odds.
Only if you also play your iron hands "vanilla". Then you can jot it down as Ultramarines on the army roster and it would be legal. Just you're not really iron hands anymore as you lose their rules.
but if you just wanted the model its legal.....just convert him a bit. But you don't get his rules.

yes i planned on useing the ultramarine rules but painting and modeling them to be iron hands. no iron hands rules just looking like them.
yeah my tech marine will be modeled with the flamer switched with a bolter and the twin linked plasma pistols switched with a bolter. i will reomove the axe and put the scanner in the other hand. with his servo harness being his 2 powerfists.
