Guilliman Article
On a related note, I was looking through the Ultramarines fleet disposition, and I've gotten some contradictory results. The 3rd edition codex lists the number of ships in the Ultramarines fleet (as of 745.M41 - the year of the Battle for Maccrage), but later fluff (i.e. Battlefleet Gothic stuff) contradicts this. Basically, the 3rd ed. codex says there are 3 Battle Barges, and names them all, while a BFG article states that there are at least five Ultramarines Battle Barges, and names some of them, too. However, all of the names are different, so unless the earlier three were all destroyed in the BfM, I'm not sure what to make of it. Further, the average Space Marine fleet contains 3 Battle Barges, and we know that the Ultramarines have a larger fleet, so this suggests that the BFG article is more accurate. I may just have to add in the article something like "reports on the disposition of the Ultramarines fleet are contradictory, but..." I think I may use the BFG stuff and just make a note of the 3rd ed. codex information in a footnote. --[[User:AvengingDentist|Avenging Dentist]] 10:03, 17 Jun 2005 (CEST)
Having looked over the BFG Ultramarines article, I've decided to ignore it, as 1) it almost directly copies large parts of the fluff from the Index Astartes article, and 2) several points of the article are ''clearly'' wrong, such as the assertion that Ultramar is located in the Segmentum Tempestus. However, I'll still note that such an article exists... --[[User:AvengingDentist|Avenging Dentist]] 10:23, 17 Jun 2005 (CEST)
