Hey guys i am doing my own fallen chapter and basically like all chapters they started at 1000 men however by the time they had fully turned to chaos they numbered 400 men. 3/4 of the chapter is in the 10 companies however the rest of the chapter is in the temple guardians. The chapter mainly favours a stealthy infiltration terror among the enemy lines approach to war and so here are my questions.
Would you be fine with me using dark angel marines to represent the temple guardians which would be using the 1k sons rules
Would it be fine to use loyalist assualt marines and devastators for havocs and raptors

That sounds great, just be sure you remember to keep to the weapons the chaos codex has since we don't get all the toys they have in the SM boxes, like havocs having autocannons instead of getting multi-meltas.

Absolutely no problems at all with this, a recently turned Chapter probably wouldn't be quite as spiky as the Chaos Marine Miniatures would have us believe anyway - so using the 'Loyalist' miniatures as a base should definitely work well.

Yeah i wanted the idea that its only been 150 years since they have turned and to be honest i really hate some of the chaos models (1k sons raptors havocs)

Its your army dude. No one has any right to tell you what models you can or can't use. Plenty of us Chaos players already use Dark Angels as Word Bearers anyway. Dark Angel icons removed, obviously.

That is very true :) i just wondered if anyone would have any problem with it, then again our codex is so dated anyway

My Raptors are Assault Marine kits with Chaos chests, arms, shoulders, and heads. No complaints from around here.

My LGS shop runner also suggested using Devestator Marines as Havocs. It's a good idea, especially if your fallen Chapter is still putting the PA newbies into the Heavy Support squads. If anyone asks, just say that they're new, and haven't had a chance to bling their armor up yet.

yeah im sticking with the chaos dex as i like alot of the things in it :)
@Charistoph my chapter are basically fluff wise they are infiltration and guerilla warfare specialists while the temple guards are all that plus psykers and religous fanatics, their traitor guard army also are guerilla specialists.
