    How many points is a chapter ?

    Ok just a fun little question nothing serious really but how many points do you think It would be per company and per chapter lets just say it is a average codex chapter.

    Chapter would be 40k-50k points and up, plus thunderhawks and the like.

    A standard battle company is 6 tac squads, 2 assault, 2 devastator, a captain with an honour guard, 8 rhinos, and a razorback. You could probably field it at 3k give or take.

    It'll vary a lot depending on what gear you're giving people, and what kind of vehicular support they have. You can field a reasonably decent Battle Company for 3k points though, if you pay attention to your points cost. You wind up looking at 30 or 35k for the line troops, plus more depending on what kind of armoury and support the chapter has.

    As a Full company owner it is roughly 3400 points (as per the apocalypse formation, including it's points and doing things like rhinos for the devastators)
    The chapter?
    well, they're typically 10 companies:
    1x Vets (1st company) - not normally 106 men but less, however terminators/sternguard etc so more expensive
    1x scouts - numbers vary, and would be less
    1x Assault - pretty much the same (less rhino's, add assault squad points)
    1x Devastator - far more points, I'd add 500 points
    4x Tactical - (2x assault, 2x dev and 6x tactical squads with command and captain / chaplain)
    2x tactical - 10x tactical squads - slightly cheaper
    and then there's all the support, 2-3 dreads per company, land raiders, whirlwinds, land speeders, bikes (replacing a company sometimes) techmarines and servitors etc etc.
    50,000 is a pretty good guess i'd say

    Ex the motor pool, ~30k. I'm not sure I agree with another ~20k for vehicles, I'd say more like 12k...so 40-45k for the chapter, unless you're also counting strike cruisers and stuff (wouldn't a strike cruiser alone be over 10k?)

    The Thunderhawk alone is 900. A Strike Cruiser is going to be worth quite a big more, and a Battle Barge a heck of a lot more then that. How about we keep it simple and not count the fleet assets for this purpose?

    That's not even counting the PDF auxiliaries that most chapters have.

    Going by the blood angels codex they have more than 20k just in landraiders and stormravens, though they are particularly well equipped. I'd agree that smaller chapters could easily have 10k or less before thunderhawks.

    Ok interesting replies I have to admit I never thought of including chapter surfs and the like as for thunder hawks and the fleet that gets even more complex when you think that these also feature in bfg and ai so and also when you think that some chapters are tank heavy and some tank light still it think we got a good outline of the range would be and the factors that make up a points cost of a chapter.
