I am putting together a Fire Hawks army modelled on the Badab War (IA 9).
My question is what type of power armour were Space Marines wearing during the Badab War? i.e. Mark II, III, IV, V, VI or the GW marine power armour.
As it's themed I want to get this part right.
The Badab war happened within the last century in game, just use the standard plastics with some older marks thrown in for characters.

I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.

Rules for grenades are on page 72 of the rulebook.
As sithjack said, the marines were wearing the current armour formats. Again, if you can get a hold of the older formats, throw a few in there for character. Im hopefully going to revisit my Scorpions at some point and I plan to go full maximus.
When do you intend to start?
Thanks for the advice, rep to both of you.
When do I start?
I'm not sure if there is a specific Fire Hawks marine list in IA9 as I am buying it today. If there is I will build it. If not I will read all the info about Fire Hawks in IA9 and put together a faithfull list.
I have the first marine assembled, am painting the head separately, and should have a test model painted in a couple of days time. I will then post a picture for comment.
Also, I found THIS over at Lexicanium, may be of interest, I had forget that it was them who where now the legion of the damned.
Thanks for the link. The Fire Hawk shown is not much like the ones in IA9. Gone is yellow power armour, replaced by a reddish brown, gone is the nuclear mushroom cloud, replaced by a much better logo.
There is no list in IA9, but there are clues. They favour in your face assaults and make a lot of use of Vanguard Veterans (in mark III armour for boarding actions), Demolishers, Land Raider Redeemers etc. As you would imagine it's flames all the way, as the chapter master quotes in IA9 "Burn them all" and you can't get much more direct than that.
The chapter master rules are almost identical to those for Vulcan H'stan (twin linked flamers etc)
The first marine is painted and I am just basing him and painting the bolter. I will post a picture tomorrow and your comments would be much appreciated.
I like it dude he looks nice is that the forge world sceme then? All I'd say is maybe brighten the fire a little.
