Hello, warseers. I come to you all today with a simple request. I need help choosing a chapter to play as. I have been haveing a lot of trouble deciding and I have no idea what to do, so I figured I would see what you all thought. Well go ahead and answer the poll please, but If you pick the Other option, please do not say any of the 1st foundings please? Ok? Good. Thanks a bunch ahead of time.

I voted soul drinkers, i am reading the omnibus right now and it's not too bad, interesting how the chapter is turned renegade.

I love that omnibus. I read it in five days only stopping to eat and sleep. I was on vacation so I had nothing else to do, and I liked the book.

Pick the ones with the paint scheme you like the best, because nothing in this hobby is worse than looking at a pile of unpainted miniatures and dreading the task ahead.

Shortcut? Pick something with a solid base colour you like and buy spray cans at your local hardware store (or airbrush, but that's an investment). 1/3 the cost of GW sprays and huge time savings. :)

Angels Sanguine. Just like the Blood Angels in terms of savagery, nobility of descent from the Great Angel, Black Rage and Death Companies, but half black/half red and they never ever ever show their faces.. why? What could they be hiding? Check out GideonRavenor's painting/converting log in SciFi plogs. Cool Chapter symbol too. Joint second choice are Lamenters and Mantis Warriors, for the tragedy..

The reason that i don't like custom made stuff, is the fact that I over think it. I make the fluff so indepth that I get bored and then the whole fluff goes to waste.

OH darn. I forgot the Adeptus custodes. If you want them, select other

I voted Exorcists. Temporarily daemon possesed marines. When the new Daemonhunters codex comes out you could use them as Grey Knights to show there ability to fight daemons. 2 armies for the price of 1.

Looking at your list you are obviously avoiding the more famous ones, you want something differnt.

I am going to suggest you make your own, completely unique, original, personal chapter.

You might enjoy coming up with a planet, history, style, colours etc

As I said before, I would do my own, but I don't want to end up making them boring to me. I make my fluff to well thought that it just becomes bornig and I don't want that to happen. Example: I developed a fluff for a planned IG regiment that I will get around to eventually called the 1st Samian Army. I had backround for the planet and the culture of the people and I even wrote deeds and backround on every regiment and company in the 1st Samian, however as I wrote I gradually got bored as I knew everything about my army. As I said I will get around to them eventually.

I voted Soul Drinkers since they are the second dumbest "chapter" ever (they are chaos marines in denial, chaos is not this touchy feely!!!), lead by an idiot/mutant spider.

oh and i dislike marines so i chose the one i dislike the most. The only option i dislike more wasn't there which would be space wolves.

Well after much deliberation, I have decided to make my own chapter. I was considering using this paint scheme for them.


I call them the Blood Treaders. Reason being that on thier first battle, the chapter was assaulted by a chaos warband in the warp. Bloody boarding actions occured and by the end of the battle the blood of the chaos ran so deep that the marines practicly waded in it. Tell me what you think. Bear in mind I might change it.

EDIT: Here is another possible scheme:

Its really your choice. Choose because you like fluff, you like colors or whatever.

SONS OF MEDUSA give it an 'ancient greek' theme with heros such as Perseus, Jason, Hercules, a dreadnought called Zeus, Leonides, etc etc. That would be badass.

Again been doin thinking. I really have no idea to be.

I remember I chose Blood Angels because of the colors at first. Red and black sounded cool. Then my buddy said something about them being vampires, which confused and excited me at the time. Then I read about their nobility and the heroic sacrifice made by the noble Sanguinius. I honor this chapter, as they have honored all of mankind.

Ghaust Mortium posted all those nice pics, which actually changed my mind to Flesh Eaters. I need to investigate thier lore as I may be painting a small force now, never underestimate the power of reverse lighting, ie lighting the lower part, I think they would look supreme on lava bases or blood soaked ones.
