Default Index Astartes Articles

A few years ago they published a great series of Index Astartes articles. At the end of each article were the rules for chapters that didn't have their own codex at that point.
Since these rules have been published all the Chaos Legions got Official rules in their Codex.

I was wondering if it is still "Legal" to use some of the loyalist Index Astrtes lists?

Its sort of a grey area because the chapters they covered are in the new current Codex represented by Traits.

However the Index Astartes lists were some what more in depth than just a couple of traits.

None of the IA lists are legal anymore, they have all been replaced.

Thats a shame, they were a lot of fun, especially the White Scars one.

Though I really don't blame them for replacing them...

replaced where...how? surely, the little list of traits in codex: marines doesn't do them justice!

However, those "Traits" are 100% legal... and more up to date. As much as we dislike them, they are official; the old lists are not.
