in the new codex i hear you can make your own chapter, has anyone done this? has anyone had anythoughts on this and can you explane a bit of it to me because i live out in the middle of the outback and it is 1 1/2 hours to my local store...
P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe
Yes you can. There are two legal ways to do this. Obviously you could make up anything you want and your own rules, but it wouldn't be a 'legal' army.
The first way has always been around. Pick a rule set, any codex you want, and make up a new background for your army. It uses all the same rules as the official chapter from the codex you picked, but has a different history, paint job, etc.
The second way is new with the release of the new SM codex. The codex introduced traits, advantages and disadvantages, that you can use to make up new rules combinations for your chapters. You can use these to add character to the background you develop for your chapter.
You'll have to wait for other answers for example chapters. You can find a few already mentioned in other threads.
My newly created chapter is the Twilight Guard. Their traits are:
"See, but Don't be Seen" - may purchase Infiltration, if have infiltration can have Acute Senses
"Suffer not the Work of Heretics" - "Tank Hunter" skill for Tactical squads and Devastators at +Xpts per model.
"Eye to Eye" - 0-1 total of Bikes/Attack Bikes/Land Speaders
"Die Standing" - No Drop Pod Assault
The background is still under construction, but currently they are a cross between a garrison force and a guerrilla army, combat doctrine to have independent forces secure fortifications, and then spread their control until they link up.
Greetings from Planet X, I hope you enjoy your day.
