    [FONT=Arial] Hey my name is Chris, Firstly, I'm new to this forum and would like to say well done to it's creator, for its by far the most proffesional forum i have had the pleasure to be involved in. Well Done. Anyways on to business. I am not a newbie as such to the 40K Universe, as i have had The rulebook and Codex SM for about a year now, and have read them both thoroughly, though with College and Other interests i have only really got round to actually starting an army in the past month. I have recently started work on my Crimson Fists Army. I chose these Marines as i liked the colour scheme and loved the fluff (Ryanns World, Captain Cortez - except for the model&#33 As i started my army i decided to paint up a couple of Combat squads (5 in each) one with a plasma gun and a lascannon, and one with a meltagun and Heavy Bolter. I then proceeded to buy The Captain Cortez Model. By the way, what do you think of the usage of 5 man instead of 10 man squads? my friends say they work well, as they are easier to manouvere, and my ideas were two for attack and two for defence (while i am playing small games) I like the idea of a balanced army, Not all Heavy Support and Not all Assault. Where do you think i should go from here with my army? (aiming towards the 1000pt mark). Also can you tell me the Imperial Fists Siege Rules, and Can my Crimson Fists use them.

    Cheers

    Chris

    P.S - Can someone tell me (in full) that quote about kill all men and you are a god.

    I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight... razor... and surviving.

    But does anyone have any comments, info on the siege rules?

    I don't know how things work on this forum, do the replies take longer, or will this topic be ended now as no-one seem to be taking any interest. Sorry if i am being rude.

    Cheers

    The Crimson Fists are cool because they are "vanilla" marines but look far cooler than the gay ultramarines!

    Crimson fists kick ass&#33;

    See the latest white dwarf for a really good index astrates arcticle on them.
    My army is based around the background. So for example all my troop choices are scouts, as most of the brother marines were killed in Rynns world.
    I have one vet squad, command squads with large bodyguards (like kantors original com squad), no land raiders, Dradnoughts or speeders (since they would have been destroyed, and just one squad of terminators. This is just a small selection of my 2500 pt army. But it follows the basic low resource idea.

    Not that widely collected, great colour scheme, and great background (not naff heroic cliches).

    Rock on
