Hey, quick question.
Im looking to replace my dreadnought with a better elite choice (I already have Terminators and Possessed). I looked into chosen marines and asked around a bit and decided that a small squad of them would be an even switch. The problem I found is that alot of the upgrades they get dont come with a normal CSM box and the CSM box is a 10 man squad where as i wanted a 5 man squad. I found the CSM attack squad box and thought it would be perfect, but when I thought about it, i thought it would probably be the same as a normal CSM box with half the stuff.
Basically, my question is will the attack squad box come with what i want to make a chosen CSM squad without too much converting?
You really need to tell us what exactly you want to do with your chosen, so we are able to answer your question. As far as i am aware it just comes with enough bitz to be able to assemble 5 marines with bolters a few accesories.
Realistically you could buy them and then just bitz purchase some other items if you require them. Also i'd probably purchase a 10 man squad set, that way you get all the special weapons as well as icons etc. More marines never go astray.
Chosen are just CSM with Infiltrate and nice guns. They can be anything a CSM is made from.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.

Any of the Chaos box sets are useless for the weapons for Chosen if you go with the standard 4/5 special weapons in the one squad. You really would have to stockpile weapons from the 10 man box as it only comes with one of each or trade with some one. Or buy the bitz online which is what lots of people do. The attack squad (the 5 man one) doesnt come with any extra bits, just enough to make 5 basic CSMs.

With chosen I'd actually model the uber grit on them, so a bolter in one hand and CCW in the other, pistol attached to the belt and covered in any grenades you can get your hands on or any imperial gear.
imperial shoulder pads if you can find any or even traditional space marine helmets.
I do know about ordering online, i just dont like waiting. Besides, I've looked at my army list and i can fit in 3 terminators for my termy lord to attach to, so i dont have much of a need for chosen anymore.
I will however, ask that we keep this open for other people to benifit off of.
GW do sell packs of Meltaguns and Plasmaguns ordered online or through your store. They are metal though, and are slightly harder to model than the plastic ones.
