Can i use the Marneus Calgar model as a dark angels company master. Also could I use the standard bearer of his honor guard as a dark angels chapter banner.:confused:

Page 89 of the 40K rulebook is quite clear on this: "Under no circumstances can you use the Marneus Calgar model as a dark angels company master. Also, you may not use the standard bearer of his honor guard as a dark angels chapter banner."

Sorry, bud.

@ The Lion's Shade: Ignore Godzooky for long enough and eventually he will leave you alone :p

Otherwise, feel free to use whatever models you like - just be sure to point out to you opponent at the start of the game what they represent to avoid any confusion

Godzooky has it there, it's a very clear rule. Though it's actually page 92.

Seriously, as long as you equip them to reflect their actual wargear (So the Dark Angel Company Master would have to have 2 Power Fists) then you're fine to go.

What about the chapter champion.

No. page 57 explicitly states...... :D

Just convert them in line with the wargear you're loading them up with and it'll be fine.

It's your hobby.

You know I always wondered why they included that rule, but now it makes perfect sense.


Just make sure that you remove the chapter badge and symbols as well as don't paint him blue.

It comes up a quite a bit, a pretty common situation.

You can do whatever you like. There are some really nice Dark Angel models to choose from as well, though. They're very nice to paint too.

Good luck :)

The latest FAQ says you CAN use Calgar as a dark angels company master, just not at the same time as you use his standard bearer as a dark angels chapter banner. Just wanted to clear that up. :angel:

For a real answer, see Lowmans' post.

When such questions pop up, talk to the people you play with, not the internet. ;)

Actually Page 91 specifically states you can only use him as a Dark Angles chapter master IF you are under the age of 12. Anyone older than 12 must not be obsessed with Marneus Calgar.

The Chapter Banner doesnt seem to have any rules reffering to it, unless I missed it in the FAQ.

Never!

The Lion's Shade can do whatever he likes only if his opponents are not twits and ban his creativity (or lack thereof). I would never have an issue but some people out there might, just fair warning for you. Also these things cost too much as it is, no need to restrict someone for wanting to use a model they like with the colours they like as long as it still lets everyone have a fair and non-confusing game.

also make sure to get rid of all of the ultramarine parafanalia all over him.

Isn't that there to remind him about how he really wishes he was an Ultramarine though?

Well I'm planning to use the model for Azrael for a generic Chapter Master, so go ahead, knock yourself out.
