I really like the idea of fallen marines, so for my army I was planning on purchasing normal spac marine assault squads and making them all chaosy with spare bits and green stuff.
If I keep their weaponry and treat them exactly as raptors (same everything but base model) will this be ok at a majority of tournaments?
Obviously, this may depend on the organizers but I am interested in everyone's opinion.
As long as you WYSIWYG it, you're fine. Thus, you must show on them: that they have flight. That they have a bolt pistol and CCW. Any special weapons must be shown. And you have to show that they are chaos, either by defacing an SM scheme, having a chaos-y paint scheme or accessories, marks, etc. As long as it's wysiwyg, you're fine.

Pretty much what Tunisia said. So long as they look and feel like Chaos Marines, rather than just recycled Space Marines that you didn't even bother to convert in any simple fashion, then nobody will mind. In fact, I've seen entire Chaos armies that used regular Space Marine models as their troops. Red Corsairs are a common example of this.
Great, that'll fit in my chaos/templar cross over army.
Thanks a lot.
Guess this thread is closable now.
The only thing that I would see being an issu is that Raptors have Demonic Visage and Assault Marines may not adaquetly represent this.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad

i am building a chaos night lord army and am using normal marines with raptor jump packs.
its perfectly fine and they look better than the proper models.As for the demonic visage if i was attacked by a loon with a big sword id be crapin myself.
Comrade Tau Commander,
I had thought about the demonic visage, and that's what the green stuff would be for. Admittedly chaos spac marine heads and arms wouldn't be enough.
That said, the mutations sprue would be more than adequate I'd imagine.
But definitely, a good point.
i have thougth about not using all the jump packs and insted making some of them with wings and an arm or two from the mutations sprue but what wings would work good with rapters?
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel,
It doesn't laugh or cry.
All it does, from dusk 'till dawn,
Is make the soldiers die.

As for the D.Visage, it is easily remidied by getting the "mutation" sprue that comes with the CSM box, it comes with 5 heads, most people don't use them all so you could probably trade for them too.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Indeedy.. as for wings.. I'm a thinking that Fury wings are roughly the same size, they might work, but i imagine that's a lot of converting and green stuffs.
There must be some plastic ones available...
Thanks for that, I'll let you know how i get on.
Heap big respect to you all.
