I just started Warhammer 40k and have decided to use the SM because I think that they are the easiest to start with.
I bought the paint set and got these cheapo marines, 2 with bolters, 2 with flamers, and one rocket launcher. They came in only three pieces and were were not customizeable at all.
I recently bought a tactical squad and put them all together. They are way more advanced and customizable.
I am wondering if those first five guys I got are legal and what kind of troops they are. They were just called Space Marines on the box. Their guns were totally different and a little smaller. I want to know if I can use them in a battle and what kind of point values they have etc.
