UPDATE! I am going to use the 2008 GD model (SM captain with Thunder Hammer) as the commander of the 8th company, meaning I only have to fork out enough money for one Commander Boxed Set rather than 2. PHEW!

Project logs:
The Black Wolves (SM) - List Written
Ultramarines Chapter (yes, I said chapter) - Test model painted
7th Annihilators (SM) - Nearly finished (no log)

No kidding. Ten years of collecting for me, and I spend a fair penny on this hobby (according to the store logs, I spend around $200 a month on it, although admittedly most of that is not Space Marines these days-- I paint everything, even though I only really like to play the Astartes), and I'm not at a Chapter yet-- I'm at four Battle Companies with armoury, Reclusiam, 1st, and 10th Company support. Nothing wrong with wanting to do it, but just realize how much it actually is.

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

I completely understand, but I am likely to be single most of my life (girls hate my guts for some reason) and I will be earning 100k a year Air Force pay, so I have funding, and I just have to find the time. I am only 15, so I have many years ahead of me to get this done. I will probably start in two years time, after I finish my current 1500 pt army and my planned 3000 pt army (all SM). I really am a Space Marine nut!

Lol, that's pretty much the same with me, although for some reason everyone at the girls' school (I go to an all boys school) 'round here seems to know my name. I'm still trying to find out why...

As a side note, if you do manage to create this force, it would make for a spectacular Apocalypse game. Maybe against a Black Legion player or perhaps against a Tyranid force? That is if anyone has enough points...

And, has nothing in your life changed since you were 12? If it has, there's a fairly good bet that things might change over the next 3 years too...

But, don't let that put you off; hell, why not collect a chapter if you want? I think it's a fine thing to do, as someone who's just painting up the last guys for his Battle Company (which people told me I was daft for doing... before Apocalypse came out, before only troops were scoring, HA! I showed them!).

Just, don't expect life to run according to plan, is all I'm saying.

Abso-bloody-lutely! "You go girl!" as I believe the young people to say.

Keep us informed by photy and stuff of your progress. I'd quite like to see a Chapter, I've only seen one before: a guy from Poland called Artur Szyndler had his Blood Angels Chapter in WD a few years back. Couldn't see any details, the photo was from so far away because otherwise you couldn't see it all...

You just doing the infantry side of the chapter or are you doing the support vehicle companies of land speeders, whirlwinds, vindicators etc. as well?

I'd say you've probably already got somewhat of a mission ahead of you, but y'know - I had to ask

Were you not at the games day years and years back when GW put together the whole of the Ultramarines chapter for their display piece? I think it was the very first unveiling of the thunderhawk gunship model at 40k scale, so some time ago now (probably about 8-9 years at a guess - god I feel old!)
