Which (UK) WD issue has an article detailing a number of Space Marine chapters (with pictures / colour schemes) which took part in the latest war for Armageddon?

For example I believe it has the Celestial Lions, Flesh Tearers (with detail like their curved serrated sword), and the Angels of Fire (with detail like a special sword of theirs with flames along the blade).

Yes that's very cool, but I specifically want the article I asked for -- I have the WD I just have over 200 of them and I don't know which one it is.

UK WD 249 as per the UK WD database (the database (http://uk.games-workshop.com/whitedwarf/database/)--such a handy little helper).

"Index Astartes - Emperor's Shield

Current Imperial reports estimate over twenty Space Marine Chapters present in the Armageddon sub-sector. Exact numbers cannot be confirmed as more Chapters are still arriving in response to General Kurov's call for reinforcements…"

Is that what you were looking for?

Nope, thank you though, I used the same database and couldn't find it...

I had a look in that WD to check and it wasn't there...

It *might* also be the first white dwarf that the Black Dragon space marine chapter made their debux with a colour scheme and insignia.

The exorcists were in and it mentions (in the image, next to the flamer) how they have special flamer armed squads etc

It was a big section with each chapter with a colour scheme and chapter badge,

Ah, well. I know I've seen the article you're talking about, but I only have the US copy, and my collection is miles away at the moment. If it was about Armageddon, though, there shouldn't be very many places it could be....

White Dwarf UK 249

I found it!

It's the only White Dwarf to ever show in detail the insignia and various chapter symbols of the Angels of Fire space marine chapter.

I've taken some digital photos...

Thanks guys!
