http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/List_of_Space_Marine_Chapters lists most known chapters and how they look like.

I voted Aurora, because I really donīt like yellow, and with all Ultramarines around, blue ainīt exactly rare. So go green! ;)

the marines malevolent don't have a very good backstory in my opinion. the blue guys have no backstory, which I don't like. the angels of vigilance have a strong monastic theme, but imperial fists aside I'm not too wild about yellow marines.

I voted for nova marines. I've never liked the ultramarines, but these guys have been split off for a long while, and I think their bright green looks cool.

good luck!

I voted Dark Hunters, except maybe use a darker blue to totally differentiate them from Ultramarines. I don't personally care for yellow or gold which is used by Imperial Fists anyway, and green could be confused for the Unforgiven.

Why should any of us care? Paint them the way you want to, and in the way you're confident will look good.

he just asked for an opinion. you vote for what you think, you tell him why, he considers it. don't care? don't post.

To be honest, I was wondering, too :)
This is one of those highly personal decisions I thought ...

Well if you need help deciding: I donīt really like any of the above. Colour schemes are too simple, and easily mistaken for other, more famous, Chapters.

I like the Relictors (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Relictors) (cool background as a bonus), Marines Errant (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Marines_Errant) and the Mentor Legion (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Mentor_Legion).

I agree: Painting the SM plain green, blue or yellow is a bit boring (gold would be a bit more unusual). Those chapters don't seem to have any background either. I would look for something more inspiring, but then again, I am not an SM fan ;)

out of the four, angels of vigilance have the best story, and if you painted them a bit on the brown side i think they could look pretty good.

i voted dark hunters mainly because they look slightly different then founding chapters as they are a darker blue then ultramarines.

the auraros look way to similiar to salamanders to me and the other 2 look close to the same

Marines Malevolent... they're just nasty.

Plus all of that yellow could look quite cool splattered (subtly, don't overdo it) with blood. Whether it's the enemy's blood or just some poor bastard that got in the way is up to you...
