Space Marine Legion Sizes
I've had a search of the forums and indeed the internet and there doesn't seem to be a current and up to date discussion on the subject of Legion sizes.
We know the Ultramarines were the largest with 250,000, but how big were the other legions in comparison? How much do we know from the books and other fluff? What sources can we provide?
I'll edit this thread so we can see the progress made in the discussion.
I Dark Angels - 150,000 (estimated)
III Emperor's Children - 110,000 (60,000 post Isstvan)
