Hi there folks, I finally caved into several years of curiosity and went E-Bay crazy.
I purchased a bunch of space marine stuff including 3x10 man tactical squads, a 5 man terminator squad, 5 man assault squad, Rhino, Land raider and razor back.
now with this stuff enroute I assembled the first arriving tac squad and then realized I had no clue what sort of army list I was going for, or for that matter even what chapter.
I have many questions but I'll start with just a few.
What are the rules for color schemes? can I use the Ultramarines rules and paint up my army in any color I want?
Can a tac marine carry a bolt pistol and a missle launcher/Flamer? or are they limited to just the larger weapons?
I want a flexible army that has the ability to go hth if necessary, but also with a reasonable ranged punch to reduce numbers before closing, does anyone have some example lists/equipment choices that might help me?
what else do I need to buy?
Thank you in advance, I'm sick of standing at the GW shop window staring in from the outside, I Want to play!
