Hail brothers and sister! It has been a long time since I have begun a project here, but it is that time again! In preparation for the new Dark Angel codex I have begun to assemble a Company of Space Marines. In essence it isn't the third Company, but it is a large army that fits the FOC and is roughly the size of a Company. It is based off this story I wrote here,http://bolterandchainsword.com/index.php?showtopic=97760

All the Italics are already bought models, Bold is half bought, meaning, I only own half the unit atm. Ones with nothing done to them I still need to buy. I'll underline each when it is finished. The Master is almost done and Marius just needs his Jump Pack fnished.

The list is 87 Marines, 3 Dreadnoughts, 1 Tank, 3 Speeders. I'm not sure if I should keep the predator or get a third squad of Devastators though. Any suggestions?

I'll post pictures of what is built and started tonight! I still have lots of work to do on my Deathwing, but they shall also become an entire company. That is my X-mas project, is for my Deathwing army to become the first Company, minus the Land Raiders.
Cheers,
The Master Chaplain.

sound pretty good, ill be keeping an eye on this.

as for the third squad of devestators, unless you are going to be painting them in the colours of a reserve company i'd miss them out as your limited to two as a company. also, im guessing your only taking 4 of the 6 tacticals for points reasons?

good luck with the project

Yeah, I keep thinking though, that I want all infintry supported by Dreadnoughts, but it would make sense to take the Pred. over a squad of Devastators from the 9th. Well really I took 4 of 6 to get the army to fit the FO Chart. I wanted this to be a playable army, and until I see Codex: Apocolypse and its FOC then I will be following the current. After I finish the gaming army though, I will be adding the other two tactical squads.
I'll get some pictures up later of what I have. I need to finish this by Dec. since thats when my next project starts. LatD!!!
