beslubber'em. They'll deal.
hmm, who left that piece of soap carelessly lying on the floor?
The D is okay. We love the D here.
You don't have to follow that to the letter. If my memory still serves the Exorcists a founding off of the Ultramarines runs 12 Company's with the final 3 being Scout company's they have per the fluff adapted to that because of the high rate of losses since they like to hunt demons and such as enemies of choice.With the Salamanders having 7 the 10 company thing is only a guideline not a hard and fast rule. Also the organization of the companies can vary the Dark Angels are a Codex organized chapter but they have a fairly unique organization when it comes to there 1st and 2nd companies (all termies in the 1st and all bikers and speeders in the 2nd).
The Exorcists are a pretty poor example, though, because Guilliman left no fixed size for the Scout Company and it could be argued (by some, anyway) that the Exorcists' three Scout Companies all fall under the "Tenth Company" heading.You'd have done better mentioning the Space Wolves, who have either twelve or thirteen depending on who you ask.

That pretty much means those who would argue they have one really big scout company would be wrong at least per the description of the chapter in the codex. Guilliman didn't but Matt "I'm a DB" Ward pretty much did for whatever that's worth.
Also the space wolves are not a codex chapter.
The point here is if your going non Codex you can organize your Space Marines anyway you want and there is nothing that says you can't have a non Codex chapter if your using the SM Codex as the rules base.
