Hopefully some people can help me here. My brother would like to include Pedro Kantor in his army so he can use sternguard veterans as scoring units. He doesn't have a Crimson Fists army however, so I am not sure if he can use him. He has created his own chapter and on page 127 it states that, "alternatively, you can use the model and rules for named characters to represent a mighty hero of a different chapter" (SM Codex 127). I just want to make sure this means he can use him in his "made up chapter" and Pedro's special rules. Thanks for your help, my brother is only 11 and doesn't have alot of money sitting around so I don't want him to waste any money if he can't use the character.
Yes he can, he can go to any army he wants to even DIY
IAM 110% sure so theres no need for anyone to answer this question!!!
As Warmaster says, it's 110% cool. On that note, the Kantor model has a LOT of fist iconography (on his pack, on his bannertop) so keep that in mind as far as your brother's chapter icon goes.
Also, since you brought it up, your brother doesn't actually have to have the Kantor model imo. If he'd like to go with a fitting conversion I'd say that's fine. He'd just have to let people know!
Ed: Just wanted to add that the conversion might be a nice project you two could work on together, and say that converting marines into sternguard is a very good route to go with creating them.

I am starting an Ultramarine army, and have yet to get the codex. Could I add Pedro to my army with the same rules, but with a different name?
(WH40K) Dark Eldar - (12,000pts) Sisters of Battle - (5000pts) Dark Angels -(3500pts) (WHFB) Dark Elves - (10,000pts) Beastmen - (5000pts) Empire - (3000pts) Wood Elves - (1500pts)
So, if I wanted, I could have a chapter with:
Kyle, Captain of the 1st Company (Lysander's rules)
Stan, Captain of the Second (Sicarius)
Cartman, Captain of the Third (Shrike)
Kenny, Captain of the 4th (He'Stan)
Butters, Captain of the 5th (Khan)
Timmy, the Chapter Master (Calgar)
Jimmy, Captain of the 6th, who has been given Orbital Support (Kantor)
And so forth...
Hope that illustrates everything clearly.
You also wouldn't have to deal with those pesky fist icons.
