What chapter would be most appropriate if I was to kitbash this into a Space Marine HQ?

I'm strongly considering Executioners just because of the insanely large axe and their non-Codex Astartes ways.

My reading list so far

-(in progress) False Gods -Galaxy in flames -The Fall of Cadia -The Lords of Silence —The Flight of the Eisenstein -Fulgrim -Devastation of Baal -Dark imperium

  • Thousand sons
  • Burning of prospero
  • Ahriman: Exile

-Plauge wars -First Heretic -Ahriman:Sorcerer The list goes on but I’d say this is maybe a years or more worth of reading and trust me when I say the list is bigger.

Dreadnaught Only Army?

I don't really like Space Marines, only the Dreadnaughts! Is it possible to run an army list with Mostly Dreadnaughts? Is it possible to play with Only Dreadnaughts? What units support Dreadnaughts?

What are the rules to painting minis/armies unique color schemes?

I'm just starting out after talking to a friend about it for some time. He said in some other table top games require you to only have specific color schemes for miniatures and don't allow you to make external modifications. I have seen some of the things people have posted here but I'm not sure if those are made to be used in the game.

firing phase

My native language is not English in case you see that there is any grammatical error.

I don't quite understand how many dice rolls have to be made at the time of the shooting phase, since I have seen videos in which they include the ap for the saving throw and in other places they just roll the dice like that and I have also seen that some compare the bs with that of the rival and others roll the dice according to the statistics of their miniatures

Question about pieces holding value.

Hey I’m newer to warhammer and I really want to get better at painting. Ultimately I want to start practicing on more minis without breaking the bank. I know buying from eBay is pretty common and I started looking on eBay too build my army a bit more. Everything I’ve seen about buying on eBay mention look into buying in lots. But if I buy unpainted minis then try to resell them would it kill the value because I’m not the greats? Plus I feel like most people would want to paint and build themselves because that’s a big part of the allure at least to me it is. I just don’t want to go too broke trying to enjoy this great hobby.
