according to a GW worker I can use the Anphelion Project: Imperial Armor set of rules for my red scorpions even though there are newer rules, in this set of rules it says my tactical squads are XX pts a model and +ZZ for an apothecary
Does this mean I get to pay XX pts per model for my tactical squads instead of YY from the Marine codex, but since those are the only rules listed I can use Marine Codex rules for everything else
If this is true It means I can have Feel No Pain Space Marines as troops, XYZ pts for a 10 man squad un-upgraded. instead of ZYX pts for a regular Space Marine squad It also means I can take the same squad of ZYX pt marines for XZY pts
These are the rules so... what do you guys say
also there are only rules in the anphelion project for tactical squads

Please do not post individual points costs on the forum, it breaks GW IP.
As for my personal opinion, I think you should probably be using the newer rules for Red Scorpions, but in all its down to your opponents. I would say if you are using the Red Scorpions Marine rules, be sure you are not mixing and matching with space Marine codex (I don't know if there are rules differences, or whether they are EXACTLY the same wargear/special rules wise).
Also, many a bad rules impression has come from the phrase 'A GW worker said...'
Rork: In the dark future of the 41st millennium there is only friendship.
Fenrir: and magic.
Kaiser-: My Little Chaos Marine, Friendship is Heresy?
Oh, Sorry about that, thanks for editing that
If you're playing in any kind of competative environment, stick to the actual codex. Otherwise, check with whoever you're playing against first...and draw your rules from as few books as possible, instead of mixing and matching to taste.
Imperial armour 4 - old grenade-less marines, expensive apothecaries, various limits
Imperial armour 6 - new marines, cheaper apothecaries, less limits
Imperial armour 9 - apothecaries come free in exchange for chapter tactics (with Culln), other limits removed.
The key thing to know is that Anphelion Project: Imperial Armor was written during the 4th Edition Space Marine codex. The newer stuff is where you'd want to be if you were going to play Red Scorpions. The first Badab War book is where I would go, but you'd have to use Lord Commander Culln as a character, though he is a pretty cool character.
Also remember that you need to ask permission to use forgworld items/rules from the opposing player.
