Or, maybe not in a box, but anyways...
Did you know you can actually buy your very own chapter of SM? Thats right, 1000 SM plus almost 100 vehicles and stuff like that! That would be sweet!!! Just imagine, your very own chapte, al to yourself.
Of course, there is the price. I think its $5000. :-X

Oh, I saw that somewhere once!  Damned if I can remember where though...

In either case it definately was a US offer and I ain't paying the shipping cost to the UK for that much stuff  ;)

It was in one of the white dwarfs around when the land raider came out.

Thats not nearly enough! There are something like 100 RHINOS in each chapter! Then there are the modded ones ie predator and things like the Land Raider, Land Speeders, bikes. And they need something like 20 Thunderhawks. You're gonna be looking at well over $10 000 let alone the $5000 for that boxed set!
Death to the enemies of Lord Argroth!

Think you can beat the name Lord Argroth?Then please send me a Personal Message with a cool name for a Khorne Lord but one which also fits in with normal Black Legion armies PLEASE!

Yeah but Slaanesh followers aren't real men. I mean who would walk around threatening people with a speaker and a siren? ;)

a chapter has 1000 marines + tanks + characters + servitors + ships. It would be very cool though.

Who in their right mind would even want that?

If it comes pre-painted in my colors of choice, along with the required carrying cases (several), a mini-van to haul it around in, a room addition to my house for a place to put it, and a set of massive ear-plugs to muffle the (rightfully sane) objections of the wife, then I might consider it...

Jeez :-\

I seem to remember a picture of the ultramarines chapter on the inside of the SM codex
"... and the Engines of Vaul will smite them, and bring fire upon them, and in agony they will depart this realm, their souls screaming into the black void that awaits their pitiful race. And with their banishment there will be peace in this place, and we will be one step further along the road we must tread... "

That chapter is on permanent display at GWHQ in Nottingham.  I remember when it was first done back in 1995,  every store in the UK supplied either a painted squad or a tank.  It was very impressive.
