hey all im attempting to make an apocalypse SM army. but im doing it with a twist.
i hope to have all 9 of the first founding chapters, but i want a tenth to make it even for the purposes of squads. i hope to have a special character from each army to lead the army. eg marneus calgar, azrael, lysander, shrike etc. which major SM chapter would be the best. im torn between using Black Templars or maybe Crimson fists.. what would be the most expected chapter you would see in this army? thans for your time
Um, convert up some Custodes...
But Black Templars will be the probable 10th.
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
i thought BT seeing as i already have an army of them but thought id like to do something new. thats the only concern from them, and grey knights dont exactly fit the theme. and it would end up costing more.
i plan to buy a TS and just get DA and SW bits to add character to one model in the squad. so for example have a TS with
1 unknown chapter...maybe i should do a poll
also does anyone know anything about white scars or Iron hands leaders.. i cant find anything and would like to have a leader running around from each.
lastly which chapter would be most likely to field what? EG. which army would field the seargent and which would field the heavy weapon and who would supply the special weapon etc.
thanks for the help
I would say Blood Ravens. GW seems to love lumping them in with the first foundings.
A swirl of color and sound, a multisense blur I taste with my fingers and, and me at the center...
Like someone said earlier, convert some Custodes, then count them as Grey Knights. Now you all your units fit together. It would just be a little strange to include all first founding, and then a succesor chapter. Thats why I say stick with custodes.
IMO the marines from a chapter should stay in the same squad. It makes more sense, and looks more organized than a squad full of different colors
DA - tactical, bikers, termies
UM - tactical
IF - tactical, termies
SW - tactical, scouts, assault
WS - bikers
BA - assault
IH - tactical, hvy weapons, special weapons
RG - scouts, assault
salamander - special weapons, tactical
Custodes (if still you decide to include 1 marine from each chapter in a squad) - sergeant
The tenth special character could just be an existing special character you haven't used yet/Grey Knight grand master dressed up like a custode.
