How many points could you make a completely vanilla marine army, without using any traits or special characters? It's been bugging me for awhile now but I lent my codex to a buddy so I can't look it up

There's no upper limit of points you can spend on a "clean" army, unless you're limited to one FoC... it'll take some number crunching to figure out how many points you can stuff into a single Force Org chart, though.

Well, I know for guard its upwards of 13,000. So never let a guard player challenge you to a "Hey, why don't we play with one FOC instead of points?" game.

Well... yeah but at that point I just figured it hardly made much of a difference, 50 odd points or so, once it broke 8k I stopped being finicky. Besides looking at the codex for so long was really getting tiresome.

Thanks for the cookie but it really wasn't all that bad. Twas a lot of copy and paste really and after I finished the HQ I had the wargear prices mostly memorized, prolly took around 20 minutes start to finish. When your familiar with the codex it's easy to whip up a list fast. Now if it was the Dark Angels codex... that would have taken at least three times as long... blasted new format.
