Maybe you could start him out as a conscript from the IG that gets drafted into the SM\'s to a scout squad then a full fledged BB. But every model should have a trademark of him like his lucky grenade named \"pop\" that he never throws.

Hey a conscript can be 13-15 they are after all headstrong teens that want to fight with the IG... do you know IG fluff? Because I don\'t:blush:

Ya but consripts wouldnt be where you look for SM recruits. They have to have leadership skills, faith in the emperor, exceptional combat skills ect.

Why can\'t a conscript have that?

There isn\'t a magical 15 year old model that looks perfect to act as a pre scout. Your best bet is to look at necromunda juves, because they are kids

Have you seen the stats for a consript? Low LD, Low A, Low I ect. Conscripts are worse than even normal guard squads.

Will you consider the lucky grenade named \"pop\"? Please keep it in there. It would be a comic relief for the serious space marines.

EDIT: So there stats are bad... maybe he\'s an exception. Push the boundaries of the box just don\'t overdo it.

Well the stuff I said at the start I hoped would work but I guess people don\'t like the conscript idea so I\'d go with Archon\'s idea.

There is no reason why a conscript cant become a space marine. Not all conscripts are worthless fighters who don\'t have an ounce of courage. Britain virtually conscripted our army for WWII and we won the war!

I dunno i would use a fantasy model for a starting one, as most marines recruit from feral worlds or ones that are not too advanced in technology. Maby a bretonian model.

Not on your own:P but you did do a lot of the work;) you guys fooled Hitler pretty well.

About the model. Would the conscript idea work out model wise? Include \"pop\" the grenade.

No it\'s just one grenade he keeps as good luck;) He doesn\'t throw in fear that the luck will go away. C\'mon go along with it;)

I think \"pop\" should be kept no matter what. you should put something in like on his first battle he didn\'t throw the grenade instead he beat somebody with it or something and that\'s why he never throws it. It saved his life! Peace!B)
