Space Marines chapter rules
« on: July 15, 2002, 10:36:42 AM »
Where could I find the rules for different chapters?  I've read through my friend's space marine codex.  Found nothing.  I know a few chapters have their own codexes, but that dosen't really help me either.  Neither did the games workshop website.  I'm looking for special rules for the Imperial Fists chapter, but can't find them anywhere.  Can anyone give me a hand?

You might want to check out Index Astartes.  Index Astartes is a codexish thing GW made that has fluff and some special rules on each founding chapter (Dark Angels, Emperor's Childrem, Iron Warriors, White Scars, Space Wolves, Imperial fists, Hight Lords, Blood Angels, Iron Hands, Worldeaters, Ultramarines, Death Guard, Thousand Sons, World Bearers, Salamanders, Raven Guard and Alpha Legion). I now that the Dark Angels part is just an update for thier codex and i think the Space Wolves part is the same as well but I have only flipped thought the book once at the hobby shop i go to but I'm pretty sure they have Imperial fists rules in it.

I've read that, too.  I couldn't find much Imperial Fist info at all.  Its really hard to find stuff about this chapter.

Try using yahoo or google to find some Imp. Fists fan sites..and if you get lcky they might have the special rules. Or you could ask on the games workshop website forums. I hope this helps.

Well, the Codex: Space Marines IS the rulebook for most of the chapters.  Some chapters have their own special rules as dictated by their respective codex (Blood Angels, Space Wolves, etc.).

If I understand my SM fluff well enough, the vanilla codex represents the organizational tendencies for chapters which proscribe to the Index Astartes laid down by the Ultramarine Primarch, Roboutte Guilliman (sp?)

search for the imperial fists on the net.  ie goto www.google.com and search for "imperial fists".  then search looking through all the websites until you find what you are looking for.

hope this helps :)

Codex: Imperial Fists. I'm not sure if someone just made it up, but it seems real. ::)

The Imperial do have their own rules, but all they are is a modification to Codex SM. They basicly allow your enemy to play an extra turn and you have a few bonuses when fighting in your own forifcations.....
