What would be your reaction upon discovering that the Codex Astartes does not support an action you are attempting to take?

Does any and every deviation risk accusations of heresy?

>> No.16458057

it depends on the infraction dude. and the chapter the space marine belongs to. you're not gonna get shot in the face for carrying an boltgun AND a chainsword for example

Well it depends on the chapter.

More purist Ultramarines would immediately consider a codex-friendly alternative.

However, the Black Templar would basically shout out "GIRLYMAN CAN SUCK IT" before doing it anyway.

Well I haven't read the codex in a while but I am just going to assume that our standard methods are completely by the book. I mean we are a 2nd founding chapter of the Ultramarines.

But if the orks have their Codex, it means that they see value in our own Codex Astartes, to be attempting to ape it so. Perhaps we could tame the beasts and teach them to properly revere the Emperor, and thus purify them to be used to defeat the true, implacable enemies of Man?

Even most Ultramarines accept that the Codex is often open to interpretation. Only the most die-hard treat it as gospel that must be obeyed to the letter at all times, because that then denies them tactical flexibility (which is also something that the codex recommends keeping).

Very few Ultramarines actually try to be a Flanders about it and follow EVERYTHING the Codex says, even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff.
Leandros was basically just using the deviation from the Codex to back up his other accusations.
