    Space Marine Veterans MKII

    I just received these beautiful models and thought it was strange that they don’t make a legal squad. I don’t are these made to be sergeants of squads, because they certainly don't make a legal squad. Sergeant with power fist sure is fine, that's legal. Bolter man, legal, though as the rest of the squad is CC and he looks had to convert as the gun is fused to his body. Now remains 2 bodies with attached plasma pistols, which aren’t legal for the squad, 2 power wpns, of which you can only use 1, a body with a bp and a single lightning claw arm. you can only use a pair lightning claw arms. Has there been an update that I don't know of, am I misreading this section. There seems to be no extra arms or wpns or anything.

    They are great looking models, it's just a shame they cant be a squad together without lots of, "oh I know he’s carrying a lightning claw, but that just a back scratcher."

    So I'm just hoping to hear I can't read or there has been a rule update.
    Thanks guys.

    your right, they arnt a legal squad, however they may be if you were useing DA or BA, im not sure, youl have to check the respective codexes.

    they can be used to make awesome verteran sgts for squads, take 2 out that arnt squad legal, put them in tactical sqds, buy the blister back with 2 vets armed with bp and ccw , add them to the vet sqd and there you have a legal vet marine sqd.

    I believe they're just awesome models. I plan on finding a home for them in various squads, perhaps with a little conversion.

    Yeah, this is pretty much how I see them. Nice models, but could do with a little conversion and then inclusion into other squads. I bought a box I think, though were it has gone I know not *looks around*.

    Butcher them I say... make some useful and nice looking Veteran Sergeants for the other squads in your army... But they had some update didn't they? 8Y

    You can have a single lightning claw, but I don't see why you would over a power fist.

    They are very nice looking models but that doesn't make them legal. I would make a few conversions in order to make it legal or butcher them for a commander.

    They're nice models, but they're not a legal squad for even DA or BA.
    The best you can really do is use them as captains/sergeants, use some models from the unit for vet squads/DA or BA command squads, or swap some weapons to make them legal.

    You're looking at what will be the Veteran squad for Codex: Space Marine Redux. They'll be using the Dark Angel/Blood Angel Veteran rules so the squad will be legal (though the single LC still sucks.)

    I'm going to pick up a box of these guys just to use for Veteran Sergeants. Hell, even the guy armed with a bolter looks awesome!
