Hey guys I looking to make an exorcist army.
Iv got a load of blood angels models built and
painted in a dark red including sanguinary guard
because I was going for flesh tearers but iv just
discovered the exorcist and there a perfect fit.
Thing is iv got a large grey knight army already
so I'd rather not have another painted a different
colour. Does anyone have any ideas on which
codex would be good to base them on given fluff
space wolves just sprang to mind but im not
familiar with there rules.

All comments welcome also modeling ideas and pics
if someone else has started this army.

Thanks.

I say this purely as someone with none of the Marine Codices, but I'd say your best bet is the option you don't want to go with. However... I wouldn't think the Exorcists are as well equipped as the GKS, so that would probably be a bit of an extreme counts as. In fact, I don't even think counts as is really needed period. Or at least might not be come the SM Codex. Since we all know they're going to get the things CSM players were gimped out of like chapter traits. :P But I digress...

I have heard that the DA Codex is pretty anti-chaos. Maybe not quite anti daemon, but aside from GK, that's the closest you are going to get mechanically speaking to some Chaos bashing.

The Exorcists are a codex chapter.

Their only variations are that they have unique recruiting methods and 2 scout companies (not one) and that they have various sub cults of knowledge within them.

Companies are still laid out an equipped as per codex Astartes.

Ergo. Best option if you ask me Is Codex Space Marines.

Thanks for your comment. I'm brain storming this at the moment.
Maybe I could run an allied list concesting of army X
and Gk as allies. The thing is iv got a very big space marine
army and grey Knights and blood angels just don't appeal a
anymore and I don't sell my armys so iv got to do something with them.

Codex marines with GK allies (or the other way around).

There is exorcists captain Alberec from Imperial Armour 10 - essentially a vanilla captain with a thunderhammer and a few other perks, and grants his squad a 4+ deny the witch roll.

In that case, your best bet really would be the SM Codex as stated above. Unless you have any of the other Marine Codices, why go out and spend 20 quid on a book which will soon be made redundant by a 30 quid book you'll be buying within the year anyways? While I can understand the desire to put some rules with the more unique snowflakey type of armies out there (believe me, I have tried with Relictors, but you can't go SMs due to no Daemon Weapons, and CSM means you get all that chaos crap liek CoC, Boons, etc.), sometimes it's not exactly required. The Exorcists have the two scout thing going on, but their connection to Daemons isn't a big one which makes them on par with GKs in killing them. They simply had the fortitude to banish daemons from their body when possessed by them, something which kind of strengthenes their soul and whatnot. There you go, they don't get possessed in the game anyways, and will have AtSKNF to represent their iron will. Jobs a gooden. A Librarian or Chaplain might also be fluffy.

I think my best bet is to paint them up as the
exorcist chapter and use them as a counts as army
so i could take them as DA or BT, space wolves ect,
A cheap way for me to play any marine army even chaos
if I want I'd just have to be smart in modelling terms.
