i just wanted to know i if can use chapter characters such as the Salamanders one and Ultramarine honour guard and still use the same rules or would you be able to use the model but have to make up the stats your self becaus ei really like the new salamander character especially the rules for it but failing that i will create a character and the salamander rules for it.
making; Land Raider Wildfire
painting; Gruesome death competetion figures
Space Marine chapter Emporers Swords
ie. Shrike is rumoured to give the entire army the Fleet rule.
It will also give armies the abilities to take certain units as troop choices such as bikers or termies if you take said SC which gives this rule. If they kept it as is they would get alot less player made chapters as you wont be able to get the Traits anymore.
I have to agree with ethsar46. GW has been advocating "Counts As" for some time now in various issues of WD and online (before they eliminated their forums). With their ridiculous elimination of options in codex after codex it seems clear that "Counts As" is the only creativity they want us to have. Given that having a certain special character will soon be the mechanism to having a fixed set of "traits", you'll be seeing Marneus JoeBob and his Chartreuse Avengers up the wazoo. I know for a fact that after I finish the IG I'm working on, my Storm Riders will be coming back off the shelf led by an orange and green Khan named Kharis.
Yes, there are female marines and my Sunhawks will let you know in a major way.
Not all the Emperors Children turned coat. We will redeem our name.
i don't forsee a problem, you can always remove the iconography or cover it up if you want to be safe, but i don't think there'll be a problem, vulkan is cool and the honour guards are cool so why not, only thing is that the eagle helms will drtract from the reptilian feel of the army a bit, in my opinion.
