Default OMG Far_Sh0t wants to collect an entire chapter of Space MArines!?!?!?

OK the title states it all! I want to collect and entire (1000 marines plus vehicles) so help me decide!


Dark Angels-
Pros: Mysterious Nature, own codex, ravenwing and deathwing, kick D'yi models
Cons: I don't like the extremely dark green pain job (so I might want to do a 2nd founding chapter)

Space Wolves (Including 13th co)-
Pros: Great rules, own codex, fluff, they are CRAZY!
Cons: Again the paint job but I don't mind it, New codex is still not out.

2nd Founding BA-
Pros: Vampires, own codex, Death Company, sweet rhinos, I get to make up my own fluff, Sanguineous is my favorite Primarch,
Cons: lack of scouts with special weapons, assaulty w/ bolters

Crimsonfist's-
Pros: Less to buy :P, fluff, sweet color scheme, great fluff, i get to make up my own fluff(some anyway)
Cons: lack of fluff and information, lack of choices, not as big as the other chapters

Salamanders-
Pros: FIRE!, great fluff, great color scheme, I love the lizaardy/gragon concept
Cons: no codex, stunty

Red Scorpions-
Pros: FW models, fluff
Cons: lack of fluff, I'm bad at highlighting black, will cost more



Ok there you have it, I like ALL of them and I have reasons why I don't like the, so don't so do what you like best they are all equal to me.....

Ok thank you for voting!!

Hands down, I'd have to say go with the Dark Angels. They have a very rich background with a lot of unique models. For my Dark Angels I painted them all chaos black and then did a single layer of Dark Angels green and I thought it turned out to be awesome (armor-wise). If you wanted to brighten up parts you could always dry brush a lighter green on the edges and then wash back a really watered down Dark Angels green to add some life. Otherwise, yeah, just do a 2nd founding chapter

I would build an entire company before I even thought about building an entire chapter. You are talking about years of work and a cost of more than 10,000 dollars for something you will never be able to play and will struggle even to display properly.

But if you were really serious about it, I would go for Dark Angels. Then at least you have different sorts of color schemes to play with, and the Ravenwing and Deathwing are both doable as complete chapters before you expand into the tactical squads.

Well I would not recommend trying to collect the "entire" Space Wolves chapter since they have well over 1000 marines. Not to mention there is no concrete source citing how big they actually are. If you want the challenge though they'll give it to you.

Heh, try collecting the Black Templars in their entirety (an eventual goal of mine...yeah right). With an estimated 5,000-6,000 Marines, that&#39;s a lot of painting. ;D

Yeah I know it will be a long project, but the merit and honor to join one of the few elite players who collected and entire Chapter of marines is a dream of mind (in a way)

And yes I am going to take it one company at a time Hopefully every 2 months I will have a company built and get this thing done in 2 years (obviously it will be longer to collect the first co.)

Also I am Die Hard serious about this.

Also guys don&#39;t forget to vote...

I would agree with others on the Dark Angels. They&#39;re a very unique chapter.

I also agree with Khanaris that you&#39;re better off collecting a company over an entire chapter. You can always just buy the Space Marine Battle Company boxed set coming out with Apocalypse.

Scorpions. Why? You never see them! You&#39;ll be "The guy with the Red Scorpion army" and a lack of fluff is just an excuse to cook up some of your own. Also you dont HAVE to use the FW models fom them. As for the black highlighting perhaps try not to go straight to something like a codex grey in one go. A mix of codex grey and black will be more subtle of a transition and thus can be applied thicker. If you then decided to do a secondary highlight it could be applied to only the sharp edges of the model in which case you could use the side of the brush

I went for Sallies. I just love the more noble attitude they have. They&#39;re not bloodthirsty bastards or glory hoggers like some of the other chapters. Case in point: during the 2nd Armageddon War, the Blood Angels went crazy and attacked the Ork hordes, the Ultramarines defended the Hive cities, but the Salamanders escorted refugee columns and stuff, and claimed practically zero credit for their actions in the war (how many people here knew that until I just told you? :P). There aren&#39;t exactly any "nice" chapters of marines, but the Salamanders certainly come closest to that description.
