Don't worry about it. I cancelled my first White Dwarf subscription before 40% of Heresy members were even born... a month after they dropped "The Role Playing Games Monthly" from the front cover, 3 months after 40k was released...

BTW, the term is "venerable". As in, "God, I feel venerable!"

I am not going to collect whole companies of vehicles, what I will do is use the boxed set as the basis for Companies 2-9 and add support vehicles to each set. For 1 and 2 I will use the Reload datasheets and add support vehicles. Hmmmm, for some reason vehicles doesn't look right, yet it is correct. What a dilemma!

Remember to remember that the 6th and 7th Companies are all Tactical Squads, the 8th Company are all Assault Marines and 9th Company are all Devastator Marines. Thus, you cannot use the Space Marine Company boxed set for these Companies. In the same way the 10th Company is the Scout company. So no dice there either.

Ok, I knew that the 1st and 10th would have to be made from scratch but I did not know about the 6th-9th companies, so I will do them from scratch too. Do you know if the 9th uses transports? When the new 'dex comes out I am going to write lists, starting with the 5th. Any idea on their vehicles?

The 9th apparently uses Rhinos. Don't really know why but it seems that 1st-9th Companies all use them. Except for the 8th of course.

EDIT: The 1st also use Land Raiders for Terminators. I think that they have about... lets say 4. Just for the sake of money!

With the Land Raiders I was thinking one for each squad (mixtures of basic, crusader and redeemer) and then I would throw in a few apocalypse ones too (their name escapes me right now)

Right, I have started the 8th company captain, basecoats are nearly completed. I am going to finish the basecoats today and shoot up a picture for you. I am also doing a model for a tutorial on painting smurfs, so I will post a piccy when I finish him and that will be the paint scheme.

Also, I have a rough idea of what I want to do for first company, no points values, just a list:
1 Terminator Captain
1 Terminator Command Squad
1 Veteran Box set
1 MkII Veterans box set
1 Sternguard box set
1 Vanguard box set
3 CC Terminator Squads
2 Terminator Squads
2 Venerable Dreadnoughts

All Veterans have rhinos, both dreadnoughts have drop pods, all terminators have LR's, commander and command squad have a LR as well. Mechanised terminators? Hell yeah!

Here are some pics of Captain Numitor of the Ultramarines 8th Company. He has had all basecoats applied, no highlights or other details as yet. He is armed with a Thunder Hammer and Bolt Pistol (not sure if that is legal, I haven't bothered to check yet, but he has a holster with a BP in it so I assume he can use it!)




Pics of the paint scheme will be up along with the finished Captain in the next few weeks, and I will be writing army lists by December (cannot get hold of the new dex until late november)

That looks like a task and a half, I'm finding it difficult to finish my 2nd Company of Ultras. I do think your first company needs a Chaplain in Terminator Armour, if anything because its a nice model!
