Definitely agree with Taggerung. Hell, in a basic 30k tactical squad, you can include extra marines at a big discount, to the point that well-kitted 30k army can likely put twice as many bodies on the board as a vanilla C:SM 40k army. It seems to me that 30k is designed to allow a player to field as many marines as possible in order to convey the grand scale of the Horus Heresy.
A 30k list CAN be played against a 40k list, but personally, I would never do it. Tell him to play with a standard GW codex, or find another opponent.
With that said, you can definitely jump on the heresy bandwagon and field your marines as a 30k army (long as your opponents are willing to let it pass, of course). I'm planning out a World Eaters army that I'll use as a 30k or 40k army, depending on my opponent's preference that night.

Building a new Army Heresy vs "Modern" question
Hey guys, new here but I am hoping that I will get some insight that will help me decide which SM army to build.
The biggest issue I have is that the "modern" space marines regardless of which flavor you choose, seem to be under-powered when compared to any of the Heresy armies (but of particular interest are the World Eaters).
I have some friends that are building heresy armies and I see no reason to spend the money to build, say a Minotaur army, just to have it face-rolled on a regular basis by the likes of Angron and his ilk or perhaps have some fun going toe-to-toe with the Jusaerin from the Sons of Horus.
Any thoughts? The decision here seems fairly obvious to me but I'm fairly new to 40K so that's why I came here.
Also I ran a search before posting to see if there was already a Heresy vs. SM thread but didn't find anything so if this has already been covered please point me in the right direction.
