Default Space Marines quiz #1 - Codex Space Marines

Quiz closed!

I found it time for the Space Marines to have their own quiz. Just like the Orks have, created by Iveatch.

This quiz is entirely about the Codex Space Marines. All the answers (except for the bonus question) can be found in the Codex. I have designed the quiz so you guys will have to read the whole Codex to get the correct answers, if you don't already know them.

Please send me a Personal Message (PM) with the answers. You are only allowed to enter the quiz 1 time.
Get 10 out of 12 questions (and one bonus question) correct and you will be awarded with a Karma point, and you have the bragging rights that you know the Codex. After you have send me the answers please post a reply here in this thread so I can give you your +1 Karma point. You can send me a PM here.

Here are the questions and the answers:


1. What type of 'model' is the most used and well known Bolter?

998. model bolter: Godwyn pattern

7. From how many different weapons can you choose to give to the Dreadnought?

Seven, if you go buy the latest Marine Codex: Assault Cannon, TL Lascannon, Multi-Melta, Storm Bolter, Heavy Flamer, Missile Launcher and the DCCW

8. What is the Black Carapace?
Membrane that is implanted to allow his internal organs to interface directly with a suit of Space Marine power armour,making the armour a natural exstention of his body.

9. What is the largest space vessel in a 'standard' Space Marines fleet?

Battle Barge

10. What does the squad marker (Insignia) for Tactical squads look like and on which shoulder guard is it mostly displayed?

Tactical Squads use an arrow symbol, displayed on the right shoulder

11. Which is the most expensive model in points value without any form of upgrades?

The Land Raider Crusader or the Epistolary

12. Where do aspirant Techmarines train? And what is that place?

Techmarines are trained on Mars, the largest Forge World in the Imperium, a planet-wide shrine to the Omnissiah, and home to Battlefleet Sol

Bonus question
Which two Space Marine Chapters do I have and collect? It's posted here on Tau Online.

No one has answered this question right. It is posted in the ''Meet the staff'' introduction thread.

Well a couple of the questions are miswritten or unclear and I can't for the life of me find out what two chapters you collect (except for the obvious), but I have PM'd my answers such as they are. If you'll clear up questions 4 and 10 thought, I'd be much obliged. If you re-read them as they are now, I'm sure you'll see that they don't make much sense.

Congratulations to you both!

+1 Karma given.

This quiz proves succesful, I have already gotten a couple of PM's with answers.

I changed some of the questions to make it better understandable.

But the next one will have more harder questions... :shifty:

I thought four and ten were pretty well written. Number one threw me for a loop though, it took me a second to realize that Stam wasn't talking about a little hunk of plastic when he said "Model". :P

So, did you guys have to look up any of the answers?

If you answered yes to question 1, you are in fact a power gamer, and your list is probably either beardy or you can abuse the rules to make it such.

Wahaha. Easy money. ^-^

Maybe if I collect enough Karma points I can avoid being reincarnated as a toilet brush?

...

No? :-\

Stam's rewritten them since I made that comment...they're all better now.

I did have to look up the complete answer to number one because I only knew part of it. I also had to look up the answer to number nine. It's a misleading question though if you know your Imperial Fists fluff.

I got it too .

#4 makes more sense now, I first read it when it was first posted and I assumed that it meant each individual HQ slot, not the entire FOC. Oh well, still got my kharma point :P.

Oh man, I hope we didn't have to be specific for number one. I half guessed anyway though, so I guess it's not that bad if I got it wrong.

As for number 9, yeah I caught that too. I figured I'd put down both answers, and hoping Stam would be lenient.

I nearly looked up one and five. I couldn't remember the specifics of one, and I nearly gave a stupid answer for five until I got to nine and went back to correct myself. Good thing I caught it huh?

EDIT: Yay, my first Karma point! ;D

An interesting quize indeed and a good excuse to simply re-read the codex.

I had to look up #1 and 8... I named all 9 loyalist Primarchs from memory (I know... I was curious and had nothing better to do)...
