If you're not a Blood Angel or successor, You want to be more than a few centuries younger than Dante. The Blood Angels are uniquely long lived as it is, but Dante even more so. He's in the mid to late thousand now.

Captain Lysander was lost in the warp for 1000 years and he is quoted saying "He does not remember a time when Lord Dante was NOT leading the Blood Angels."

I agree with AoD, Blood Angels and their successors are supremely long lived compared to other marines so i would suggest a blood angel or one of their successors if you want to be old. But there is no way your going to be in the Death-Watch at 1000 years old.

Still needs to have Eternal Warrior to really be good on table top, though atleast his axe isnt unwieldly.

I was shooting for either 700-800 TBH. If that is reasonable.

Also nobody knows who the Angels of Iron are successors to anyways.

Sounds Imperial Fist or Iron Hand Successor.

Probably an Ultramarine successor

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Have to ask, why does your marine need to be that old anyway other than to be the old one of the group?

Also, despite the fact that marines rarely live to see the natural end of their lives they do eventually get old and are removed from front-line battlefield roles. In the novel Angels of Darkness there is a marine who was more than six hundred years old but because his body was starting to slow he was put on a garrison duty (that does not mean he was unable to do anything, since he had proved capable of dispatching Orks earlier in the book.)


Honestly, the oldest character so far is what? Three hundred? Why do you need to have a character who is more than double that?
