space wolves. the only chapter where you can have a squad with 12 members and have 4 PF's, and if you dished out the points, a terminator, in a single squad. nothing says goodbye to your friendly carnifex loke getting puched like 16 times with a power fist

It used to be Salamanders until every SM army decided to be "Salamanders" with the new codex, so for now I'm going to go with Imperial Fists.

Imperial Fists. Without question.

I love me some Blood Angles, really hurts when people catch themselves on a nasty acute.

In truth I really do like the Blood Angels, they were my first 40k army back in the day. Having read more about Rogal Dorn though, I have a real hankering to put together an army of Imperial Fists so I cheated and chose both since it's a multi-poll ;)

I pick the Dark Angles not only do you not see them coming, but they have a dark secret.

True i always like the idea of playing as them becasue when i do i like there is a hidden agenda behind every thing when i play with my firends i freak them out and its lets me trick them so in the end i win though a match of wills (which is pretty much life)

I voted for Space Wolves. They are wolf-like superhuman vikings in space! What more could you ask for?

They draw their aspirants from a deathworld with viking-age technology, fighting with swords and spears and axes. These people hunt freaking huge sea dragons for resources, using longboats and harpoons. They are constantly battling each other over territory.

Only the most hardcore warriors of these people are chosen to be aspirants. In most cases, you have to die in battle in a way that distinguishes you, usually by killing lots of people in the process, and then be revived by the Wolves. Fenris is natural selection at its finest, and it has made for one of the most vicious and renowned Chapters in the galaxy.

Space Wolves by far.

And what's better is they are getting a new codex in December

And I hear its gonna be better than Codex: Ultramarines too! (Not that that's hard. C.S. Goto could write the Space Wolf Codex and it would still come out better)

11-02-2009, 02:39
My favorite would be Ultramarines.
Yes, go ahead and shoot me, but I love the color and there are actually next to no Ultramarines players in our area anyways, we have Black Legion and Dark Angels everywhere but no Ultramarines...go figure.

Imperial Fists are also really cool and have an awesome color scheme too, as well as a great character.

Space Wolves are really cool too, but they're really old right now and your friend may prefer the vanilla Marines book.

I say to all people who hate Space wolfs FOR THE RUSS, AND FOR THE ALL FATHER I WILL RUN A STAKE INTO YOU STOMACH AND OUT YOUR BACK IF YOU CANT DEFEND YOUR REASONS FOR HATEING THEM... sorry i get a litte emotional when people inslut the good name of Lemon Russ's chapter

AngryAngel
11-02-2009, 02:45
Dark Angels, all the way, if for no other reason then you can pick on any space wolf player ya see. I'd love to play a group game with a space wolf player. Just so I could blame anything bad on him. It's probably their fault anyways, bunch a drunks.

As a reason for why I hate them. I'm a DA player, nuff said.

11-02-2009, 02:56
Blood angels are awesome even if their "codex" sucks right now. Nothing like space marines who live even longer, appreciate art, and occasionally go mad with rage and tear everything around them to pieces.

Hicks
11-02-2009, 03:11
Go White Scars. Nothing beats a horde of raging mongol barbarians on armored bikes speeding towards the enemy with nothing else in mind but to chop their heads off.

On the plus side you don't need a lot of models, they are very fast, resilient, they have great shooting, Khan is a beast.

The only down side is that their armour is white, but that is only really bad if you intend to paint them javex clean... and that's not really in character with the WS anyway.

Let's start with being able to spell the name of your Legion and Primarch and go from there shall we...? :eyebrows:



Salamanders since before they were popular...decades before. :p Although Strictly speaking the Marines of the Legio Phoenix Templars are Successors to the Salamanders. :) Although I also have *counts as* Deathwing, Ravenwing and Blood Angels forces in addition to the regular Marine and Scout forces.

Sit down you, I don't what to hear it!:eyebrows:

aye, FotM seems to ruin things for me to.

i liked salamanders due to the lack of information on them and their primarch. but now its got to be white scars.

of all the legions? Black templars were my first chapter/ marines and i still love em.

I like both the Blood Angels and the Space Wolves, and pretty much hate most other marines.

Blood Angels are mostly cool because of their Primarch and their Vampiric tendencies.

While Space Wolves are just badass through and through.

As a loyal son of Dorn I must vote Imperial Fists.

However, the second founding "dorn chapters" are my favorite. Yes, both of them.

Dark Angels and Blood Angels.

They are both very unorthodox Marine chapters. Not by choice, mind you, but it still makes them cool none the less.

Blood Angles?

That's the chapter with the razor sharp protractor dripping blood for a symbol, right? :)

Of course, my personal favorite chapter has to be the Salamanders. How can you not love fire and hammers?

I voted for Space Wolves (good to see the Sons of Russ getting so much love!!). Like I tell my two-year-old, "We can't let the Space Wolves out of the case until it's go tome. They'll run around the house breaking things, howling, and drinking up all the home-brew!". Anyhow, they are just my first and fave. I did give a nod to White Scars, though. Kinda the same feel as the Wolves (tribal, pack-like, ferocious HTH fighters), with beards and wild hair. But painting bikes (IMHO) is not fun, and all that white........ So hard to get it to look good (for me at least....)


:wtf: salamnders:space arson (sp) :evilgrin: Too Funny!!!!

I agree. All the Ultramarine hatred gets to me. They were my first army back in 2nd ed, and I still have a soft spot for them.

Having said that, I chose Salamanders, cos I am one of those men with his dog.

11-02-2009, 14:52
Hmm...out of the options...

Iron Hands. They feel like the "darkest" of the lot. They don't trust my beloved Ecclesiarchy (which should probably make me _not_ like them, but still...) and have a rather ridiculous chapter organization. Ferrus Mannus also had a...hrm..."memorable" death, shall we say?

As for the other "dark" chapter...Fallen-shmallen, the Dark Angels are emo without a good reason to be emo (Honestly, the only Marines allowed to be emo are Raven Guard and Night Lords due to the mental states of their Primarchs).

Salamanders and Space Wolves get the "Noble" awards for being the two chapters apparently most concerned with the well-being of the people of the Imperium.

Imperial Fists make me chuckle, but they probably have the most famous successors out of the lot.

Ultramarines never really bothered me until the 5th edition Codex. Now I just want Calgar dead.

Blood Angels...well, Horus was just following standard RPG rules - all of your problems can be solved by finding the prettiest boy around and beating the crap out of him. The sons of Sanguinus just don't do it for me.

White Scars, while looking quite cool, lose out on my vote due to a combination of everyone screaming "KHAAAAN!" whenever they come up in conversation and the fact that Khan leapt into the Webway.

I think that covers the bases of the loyalist legions.

Except for the Alpha Legion ;):p

White Templars.

Seriously, you have to make the poll complete :p add an "other" option.

Blood Angles hidden in Dark Angles can be dangerous. Beware of pointy objects in the shadows...

11-02-2009, 17:02
Anything but Ultramarines, them being the vanilla chapter. Unless you have a particular fondness for being the average, run-of-the-mill, flavourless force. Or you really like the colour blue.

I'm personally fond of the Imperial Fists myself, mostly because they seem like a secret Slaaneshii cult (brightly coloured armor and the whole masochist pain-glove thing).

Fixer
11-02-2009, 17:21
In 3rd edition Ultramarines were seen as boring. They were the vanilla army that everyone else was based off of with minidexes and had no real character to themselves.

In 4th edition they got some special characters and a little flavour, along with a colour scheme and model upgrade. Still, they were seen as fairly plain. Least they had some nice background fluff for them.

In 5th edition, they have become the Mary Sue of marine chapters. Everyone loves them, thinks they're super-special-awesome and want to be like them and do whatever they ask since they're always right. Single units in the Ultramarines chapter are more decorated than entire armies, Marneus Calgar himself can destroy fortified worlds by flexing his muscular buttocks.

Being such a loved and flawless group of people they are now the most reviled first founding chapter in existence.

Sallies, and long before the current fad. Kudos to long time fans of this wonderful but obscure chapter.
After that its the Imperial fists.

Ubermensch Commander
11-02-2009, 17:42
Salamanders, Raven Guard, and Ultramarines.

Just because Sallies got popular due to their SC does not mean I will not stop lovin their fluff. Life over Pride, now that is a Primarch whose legacy I can respect.

Raven Guard simply because they are the special ops marines. Maximum output, min effort. Also Corax owned up and paid the price personally for his efforts to rebuild the chapter post haste

Ultramarines-They epitomize what a Adeptus Astartes should be after the Heresy. They carry on the same lesson learned by the Romans and every successful professional army: Codify and unify your military structure. Pass on training. Tah ******* Dah.
Also I respect the fact that Guilliman saw beyond vengeance and his own personal glory and rebuild/restructured the Imperium after the Heresy. ALL the Primarchs were fighting Chaos, Guilliman did that AND saw beyond being just a warlord, he was a statesman as well. "Well ****, the Legions lead to a civil war that nearly wrecked our Imperium....lets NOt have that again, ok?"

11-02-2009, 21:58
Favourite loyalists? I would say Relictors and Alpha Legion, though neither of them are loyalists in the conventional sense and as they aren't on the list I selected Iron Hands and Raven Guard.

Relictors because they are the Xanthites of the Astartes who realise Chaos isn't evil it just IS.

Alpha Legion because I love the idea of having 10,000 people called Alpharius in an army and because they are one of the most interesting legions.

Raven Guard because they love the lightnign claws, like me, and do the old behind enemy lines and sabotage stuff like 2 of my fav traitor legions, the Alpha Legion and Night Lords.

Iron Hands because they have a cool primarch and the Ecclesiarchy hates them

Xelloss
11-02-2009, 22:24
No Black Templars in the list so I voted for their original legion...

Since I heard the rumours of Blood Ravens being TS successors I quite like them too

Sir_Turalyon
11-02-2009, 22:32
Dark Angels because of Space Hulk computer game, cool colour schemes of fallen and healthy dose of Paranoia.

Space Wolves and Raven Guard for all-around coolness.

Honourary note to Blood Ravens for appearing in computer game without being Ultramarines.
