Default Starting a Fallen army using the new Dark angels dex

Okay.... so i've got to thinking back to my unfinished fallen project.

I'm going to use Cypher as my Librarian or Comapny master (or whatever they are called)with two pistols and stuff .

I'm going to build the army as i build it's story. With Cypher around he will draw more and more fallen to him. Starting with two squads, Cypher and a squad of vets then adding more marines, maybe the scouts maybe some devestators, another squad of vets etc. then getting the heavy stuff, dread, pred, bikes, speeder and even a fallen chaplain etc. There are two players at my club that have dark angels and will be willing to make a story of them hunting my army of fallen.

I will paint them black with metal trim and red robes (similar to the guardians of the coven from the dex). Now i currently dont have the codex but any help that dosnt require it would be gretaly appreciated.

I am going to build it up like so
400
500
750
1000
1250
1500
2000

And possibly if im still into them make the equivilent of a company of fallen.

Well remember now, there isn't even a whole company of Fallen. Even so, there may be hundreds, I don't know. They would never gather. They were spread across the galaxy, and some took up regular lives. Despite that little problem, it sounds gooooood.

Yes i know the whole back story... Some took up regular lives, they are spread through not only time but space as well, many repented (got killed by the dark angels) many surrended but havnt repented or have (totured until they repent). The only thing that draws fallen out of time and space is Cypher. Hence why i'm going to build it up over time with the story.

How many marines were there in a chapter before the heresy? halve that then probly halve or even quarter it to get the number of fallen still around.

Ezekiel has a book with the names of the Fallen. I think that in the codex it says how many are left. 250-something if what I hear is correct.

Seems like a good idea. Maybe some daemons? Well no, what daemons would they be able to use? I think you should count them as Undivided with a theme.

no... they are attempting to repent in most cases, they are not chaos... hence why im using the dark angels dex to make them.

Any other advice? I'm not going to be using too many tanks etc cause what fallen are still fighting have only 'looted' or abandoned vechiles. There is rumoured to be a fallen dreadnought hence the dread i want. Jump packs were extremely rare back then so no jump packs either. I may get a rhino or two but not much other than that. Most bikers lost there bikes when they were dragged into the warp so i'm only taking 6 bikes max (i want the speeder so i'm gonna have to). No landraider at all... if i feel so inclined i might get some termies but it will only be a min squad.

But two squads of vets are a must. Sort of like devote fallen, hunting thier form of the fallen- which will be the loyalist dark angels- And i'm going to file or cut the sword in the dark angels crest (like on the pads, the icons and the things that go on that packs) to make the fallen symbol (dark angels crest but with a broken sowrd pretty much)

In that case, all you need is the 'dex and you're good to go. Good luck!

well then... this project is taking me no where near the time i thought it wouldto build up. Some mates of mine have chipped in ALOT, swapping marines for some of my bitz (chaos and loyal ones but that just adds character). So now i have about 35 marines, 10 scouts i picked up a while ago, a fallen chaplian made out of Azreal (i think) and some spare bitz, a fallen company master and my own Cypher (which i've had for a while). I'll be buying veterans tomorrow and the dex in a week or two.

So i'm going to build the story with how i get it painted. I think i'm well on the way. Look in the showcase and coversion boards soon for a army log if i make one.

EDIT: And the book holds the names of the fallen that have repented. Not the ones that havn't

Ah, You'll have to forgive me. That's rumours for you. So.... remember to paint them black! I imagine them more like a really dark shade of green though.... what do you think?
