I've long through it should be possible to do an all in one marine book, and have a fairly compact list, so as to leave plenty of room for special characters and background for lots of chapters. So I've had a go.
My aims are
: To cover all loyalist chapters (Grey knights as marines, not a whole Inquisition book)
: No special characters here, mainly as I can't be bothered to write them all up.
If you wish to please do so, and add them. Please no army wide buffs, FOCs swaps, etc. No complex new mechanics
Boosts to one unit or such like are fine.
: To cover all major options that currently exist, without invalidating more than a handful of models. Units may have to be rejigged.
: Just to give a main layout of the significant options. Plenty of stuff is taken as read.
If something obvious is missing, please add a note. Some things have been removed on purpose, but it should say so
: Not fully costed here- options can be costed up later, and I can't be bothered now.
: No dedicated transport allowed if your unit cannot fit in it due to size/armour when you write the list!
: Any '1 model in 3' type options determine unit size before attaching characters, wolf guard, etc
: ???? any line like this implies an open question???
: I'd welcome contributions on how to cover the divergent chapters.
The whole list is here:
Please feel free to comment either here or on the document itself. I don't know enough about all the different chapters to do them justice, but others do.
