Ra's right, that frees you up a good 600xp, I do believe, CM. 8-)

Hm, question: On a Space Wolf, would the right shoulder pad show the chapter emblem or the Great Company emblem? In the rulebook, the pictures show both varieties.

I'd say up to you on this one. It's normally Chapter, but I see no reason that less codex-adherent wouldn't declare their company more prominently, especially with the likes of the Salamanders, Iron Hands (their successors) and Space Wolves.

Similarly, I could imagine Black Templars prominently displaying their crusade more-so than the Chapter icons.

(This is mainly 'excused' because they're famous enough not to put too much focus in their 'celebrity' as big Chapters. I.e. being focussed on their company is trading less on their status. [Except that by doing differently begins to emphasise their difference and status. A bit like the Oxbridge colleges.])

That said, I could also see virtual unknowns sporting their company colours. Space Marines have hipsters too, right?

All right, edited my description accordingly. ;)

on a purely pragmatic note, how will combat and other skill tests work? will our mighty GM do the rolling?

I will not. Like the instant messaging RP we've done, I'm happy enough to let you self-report. Of course, there's a significant issue in the 'to hit/reaction/damage' sequence, but I'll aim to be as unbiased/lenient as I can on that front - e.g. if you roll to-hit and damage, that'll speed up our interactions. I'll note a dodge (if possible), and usually try to where it's sensible, even if the damage was really low (as I wouldn't have known it'd be low-damage prior to rolling in the normal sequence of events).

Similarly, when trying to do something requiring a roll, I'll let you know the relevant modifiers from my end.

Of course, if it transpires that everything's much faster with me doing it, I'll relent on this 'player freedom' line and assert my tyranny, but I'm inclined to make a wee effort to avoid that, if it's workable.

So to reiterate- roll as much as reasonable at one time. (E.g. in an attack give the hit roll and the damage roll.) We'll figure it out though if other difficulties arise. 8-)
