Default Assault Marines

Can someone please tell me how many variations you can make with this squad as i want mine to be different from everyone others. Also is the shield in there always the same or not? Because i want to use a sheild. And is there any flying bases in the box?

Cheers Guys,

[Cvs]

If you use the Black Templar upgrade sprue, you will get a different shield and more decorated weapons (but in my opinion, it costs too much for just using two parts. you've better convert them on your own).

No, the standard box contains only normal bases

You could conver some flying or taking off/landing popses without a flying base, although it's a lot of work. For instance, a tabard type thing flapping against a tree with a pin in it to hold the bloke up.

variations in the models themselves, or in legal units?
you always get the same shield, because it's molded as part of the sprue
there are lots of fantasy shields though

For fluff reasons, i use Tau shield generators as my combat shields. Rules wise, they'd make more sense as storm shields. There is a kid where I play with a beautiful assault squad. His sgt. has wings rather than a jump pack, and the troopers traded in their chainswords for a double headed spear that he said was eldar. I don't know the exact bitz, unfortunately, but the look is very dramatic and distinctive.
