Default Crimson Fists (Starting)

Starting another army, the Crimson Fists. For starters I'm ordering one SM battleforce and one brother-captain, and the codex. Is this good for a standard Crimson Fists army? Or are there specific units to use in a CF force?

I don't think there's any set list of the typical Crimson Fist force... I could be wrong on that, but yeah. Look into some fluff and read up on their history and tactics, and go from there.

I've read some stuff on Wikipedia, but many people say that Wikipedia could be false...

My inspiration for doing CF? You ask?

Found the old 3rd ed marine codex in my basement. I saw this and went "HOLY TERRA!" lol

Personally, I think they look like Ultramarines with a different insignia, but that's just me. (Not a big fan of the blue.)

If you can't find any official canon from GW, then you can use the wiki or make up your own stuff. It's not like someone's going to yell at you for inventing what doesn't exist.

Read the book Crimson Tears. Its part of the Soul Drinkers series, the 2nd book to be exact, but the Crimson Fists do play a large role in that particular book, and there are even some scenes in it just about the Crimson Fists. Its not written too badly either.

Thanks, but I'm still reading Dune, and after that I have the rest of the Dune series. :P

I absolutely LOVE Dune. Frank Herbert is a genuis. I didn't think the sequels really measured up, but that's just me.

I believe the CF are discussed in the section addressing the traits system in the 4th ed SM codex. They are a second founding chapter from the Imperial Fist geneseed so you may want to read the Wiki stuff on them and Rogal Dorn. The CF date back to Rogue Trader days and were the chapter used as an example there.

They are a pretty standard SM army so what you have bought already should be a good start. What you need to determine is what sort of SM force you want to play as far as assault, balanced, or shooting. An army that meshes with your play style will help you keep interest in the army long term. I would suggest looking through the Important Topics thread at the top of the main Space Marine page.

Balanced, as my main enemy will be tyranids, with chaos, necrons, and eldar... A whole lot of crap to purge... 8)
