View Full Version : Of ALL the SM Chapters which is your Favorite

25-12-2006, 02:21
OK. No offense to Lavadude but his Poll left out a lot of important Chapters, (Space Wolves and Crimson Fists come to mind.) So I thought I would post a more comprehensive poll on which chapter of UberSoldats is your Favorites.

Personally, even though I don't play SMs I have always liked the Space Wolves. Ever Since I bought that Leman Russ mini way back in the day.

OK Warseer, Post away!

Grey Knights <. .> Easily.

I love the Blood Angels too - I think they have probably one of the most interesting fluff backgrounds: But the Grey Knights are *even cooler*.

A combonation of the Men In Black, the Paladins of yore, and the Space Marines we know and love; oh, and they're psychic.

How the heck can you not love that? <,<

The boys in blue were my first, and they'll always be special to me. No fancy bells or whistles, but a lot of reliability and butt kicking prowess.

25-12-2006, 06:43
After reading the Deus series I have loved the Blood Angels.

25-12-2006, 06:55
BAs were my first and only Loyalist Marine army, and they are definately the coolest. Come on, Space Vampires!


25-12-2006, 08:10
Nothing like a secret war on the weakness within in the superhuman soul. Dark Angels all the way...never forgive, never forget.

Space Wolves of course..! Barbarians/Vikings in space is a good idea and they do have a slightly unique code of honour among Space Marines.

25-12-2006, 09:50
I'm not a great fan of Space Marines to be honest, but the race for my favorite chapter has to be a tie between Blood Angels (ah, the good old days) and the Lamenters (lime yellow goodness, funny fluff idea).

25-12-2006, 10:11
Blood Angels... they're super-humans, they're vampires, they're angels. They're the most honorable, most savage, most feared and most decorated chapter in the Imperium!* What's not to like?

*May or may not be true, but I'm sticking with it.

25-12-2006, 11:03
I have always liked the Grey Knights (because of the awesome models) and the Black Templars (because they have cool fluff and iconography) but I voted Black Templars because I really like em.

25-12-2006, 12:38
I like Dark Angels the most for their dark, monky theme. Grey Knights and Black Templars close behind with their knights theme.

Legion of the damned all the way.

25-12-2006, 12:47
NIGHT STALKERS are probably best chapter in entire universe :skull: :skull:

ok now the rest of my fav. list:
-Blood Angels
-Black Templars
-Raven Guard
-Flesh Eaters

while previous poll was flaved more, this one missed one 1st founding chapter as well. (hint:iron hand)

25-12-2006, 13:24
For me its always going to be the Blood Angels. Their Primarch was this truly incredible hero, not just in his incredible feats, but in the nobility of his character. Then the Blood Angels themselves are really impressive. They're angellic and heroic, but also cursed and broody. Pretty much touches all bases for me!

25-12-2006, 14:40
World Eaters... no wait... Flesh Tearers I mean. I allways confuse :p

The boyz
25-12-2006, 14:47
I have always had a soft spot for Blood Angels, probably because they where one of the first armies I ever collected/painted.

25-12-2006, 15:08
Raven Guard!

25-12-2006, 15:27
Like I said before
For the Khan - white scars (mongels in space!!!)

25-12-2006, 15:33
No offense to Lavadude

none taken :)

25-12-2006, 15:34
Crimson Fists, if only for that awesome picture of their last stand.

evil space marine
25-12-2006, 16:07
I think ultramarines because they follow the codex plus they haven't got any traits or drawbacks

25-12-2006, 16:33
Grey Knights if you count them, I also used to have a Flesh Tearer army that I'm pretty sure I'll rebuild when the BA codex comes out.

25-12-2006, 16:45
Blood Angels, because Mephiston is supposed to be the most powerful loyalist marine since the primarchs. I'm stoked about what their armour is going to look like in the new codex. Awesome, I would wager.

Whoever voted ultramarines must die. now.

25-12-2006, 17:59
Raven Guard

25-12-2006, 19:48
Whoever voted ultramarines must die. now.I haven't voted yet, but I guess I should vote smurfs now.

Come if you want a fight, beaky!

25-12-2006, 20:08
For some reason I've always liked the Imperial fists. Maybe 'cause they were the ones chosen to defend/ be based on terra. That really says something about their loyalty IMO.

Plus, they gave birth to the black templars (who is your daddy, and what does he do!)

So what if they can't spit acid anymore. I think it's rude to spit anyway.

Either them, or the Deathwatch. Special forces amongst space marines?!?!? Yes please!

As I tried to in the last poll, I go Crimson Fists. Even when they aren't in a glorious crusade, they make the enemy pay for every inch of ground taken and every marine casualty in a hill of their own corpses. They are a tenacious and proud chapter with a long history in both the 40k timeline and in their history since rogue trader times. The artwork of bloody last stands of Crimson Fist marines is to me the ideal of the adeptus astartes. Unflinching service to the Emperor until their terminal breath.

25-12-2006, 21:28
The Blood Angels for me. Purely beacuse of the older artwork for them, as well as their background - the loyalist legion that lost the most in the Horus Heresy.

25-12-2006, 21:52

The Dark One
25-12-2006, 21:54
i vote for Raptors

Corporal Chaos
25-12-2006, 21:58
I like the feral feel and rebellious attitude of the chapter of Space Wolf. I also would like to say that my own creation is pretty good too, though I have little/no fluff or history for them.

25-12-2006, 22:08
Yeah, space wolves, even though I hate the popular image of vikings today (hats with horns, WTF?), I cant say no to bloodthirsty barbarians in space. :D

25-12-2006, 22:10
Blood Angels... the first chapter that drew me to marines... since i played Space Quest/Crusade.

And I really like the Deathwatch.
I currently play my own chapter though, gives me more freedom to use my own imagination. They're Radical renagade marines, and supposed to be the Predessesor to the Deathwatch... and the reason the Deathwatch are not a chapter. :evilgrin:

25-12-2006, 23:20
Dark Angels First and Always.

25-12-2006, 23:53
I love em all....even the blood ravens...ho ho ho

26-12-2006, 00:47
dark angels for sure, stubborn dark bastards that they are. and ill put a vote in for space wolves for my bro even though its been sometime since either of us played

Captain Micha
26-12-2006, 00:50
Salamanders. cause they rock. Why? cause they sided with Dorn rather than Row the hairbow Guillible the coward.

What ticks me off? We don't get a codex for the Salamanders cause some how they are a "strict enough to codex" chapter.....

Shame on you gw. you made the bts but not the salamanders?!

26-12-2006, 00:51
Crimson fists! 4 LyPh

<3 to the other CF supporters

26-12-2006, 07:00
Imperial Fists.

Siege war is tough stuff.

26-12-2006, 07:31
As in the other poll it still has to be scythes of the emperor.

26-12-2006, 08:47
As usual, the only First Founding chapter that gets left off the poll is Raven Guard! (well, and Iron Hands) I know that we're guerrila warfare specialists and all, but we're not invisible!

Anway, enough ranting; I vote for the Raven Guard, who use brain over brawn.

26-12-2006, 08:56
Relictors hands down.

Use chaos against intself? OH YEAH!

26-12-2006, 10:03

Because their colour scheme is awesome and they get on with doing the job rather than considering important but unsung tasks like convoy guard beneath them.

26-12-2006, 11:52
Angelus Tenebrae ofcourse. (Dark Angels)

26-12-2006, 12:01
Raven Guard.

26-12-2006, 15:31
The first, the greatest, the Dark Angels. The rest were mere imitations of the best. And, they have the coolest, saviest Primarch too; created the coolest rivalry in 40k by putting the smack-down on Russ. :eek: :p

26-12-2006, 23:37
Once again, the Raven Guard get forgotten by the poll-maker. You should be ashamed, Mr. Hawkmoon, for leaving out one of the first-founding Chapters while including those undeserving upstarts, the Black Templars.

hey! The Black Templars are an example for all! sure, they are the crazier of my armies family line, but their constant crusading for the Emporer, never flinching in the face of waves of foes!

27-12-2006, 00:18
White Scars are in the minority?

Who doesn't like Marines on Bikes??? :D

27-12-2006, 09:48
I voted Dark Angels simply because they sum up everything I think Space Marines should be. They actually look religious!

27-12-2006, 10:36
Space Wolves, and particularly the 13th Company.

dave is the best
27-12-2006, 10:39
I like the blood ravens.


27-12-2006, 11:53

If Warseer had the capability to add the 20+ poll options needed to truly get an “All Chapters” poll I would have surely done it. In that I suppose I was a bit misleading in my thread title. You all have my sincerest apologies.
m( _ _)m

That being said I tried to post a selection of the most seen Chapters. I should have known some people would take offence, Adeptus Astartes being as prideful as they are. :rolleyes:

27-12-2006, 12:01
My home-brewn Storm Dragons chapter.


27-12-2006, 15:34
NO suprise that my favourite is the first and greatest of all legions the Dark Angels. Amazing background fluff lot of variety in not only which army you can field but being Stubborn it how i view space marines should be.

Captain Micha
27-12-2006, 15:46
I feel for you ravenguard.. see thats how good you are at your job! You can be forgotton about! Ultrasmurfs land on a planet. see a bunch of bodies everywhere. "What happened here"

Some old geezer. "Don't you guys remember? The Ravenguard were here!"
"umm the ravenwho?"
*shoots the old guy.*
"time to take credit for winning on this planet.."

27-12-2006, 15:47
Black Templars - My once and ever favourite.

28-12-2006, 14:14
My favored Chapter is the Scythes of the Emperor; perhaps it's the Forlorn Hope feel that they have, devastated by the vast, overwhelming horde that is the Tyranids, yet fighting on still. Could be the coold color scheme; black and yellow make for a fantastic looking fighting force on the table top.

I will admit that I own a very large Dark Angel/Deathwing force as well as a Space Wolf (and an IW army), but of all of them, the Scythes hold a preeminant place.

28-12-2006, 14:43
I find it amusing that the Dark Angels and Space Wolves are tied 33 votes each. It seems the traditional rivalry is strong between them!

28-12-2006, 14:48
Oooh look! Smurfs have only 14 votes! And Crimson fists only have 6! That's about the number of BattleBrothers they can field;)

It's funny that the two chapters that are the prime example of (codex) Space Marines are so...not favorite. Has it something to do with the fact that GW likes them?

Captain Micha
28-12-2006, 15:11
you know whats bad. is my favorite chapter the least loved on by gw, has almost as many votes as the smurfs

28-12-2006, 15:15
Emperor's Pointy Sticks should be there too. Its a nice and funny chapter.

"How this chapter managed to hit a target standing still in front of them is beyond me" :)

Captain Micha
28-12-2006, 15:19
don't forget the Silk Fist!

28-12-2006, 15:27
Totally Blood Angels all the way!

Wolf Sgt Kirke
28-12-2006, 15:39
beer, vikings in space and pet wolves to feed the corpse of your enemy to - gotta be Space wolves for me!

28-12-2006, 15:51
Even though I now play my own trait Chapter, the Ultramarines were my first 40k army ever. The Space Smurfs will always hold a special place in my heart.

28-12-2006, 17:01
Now, if I was ever going to do a Space Marine chapter, I would do either the Space Wolves or the White Scars.

However, I have vowed never to do a SM army as I prefer the other options available. Besides, I play Death Guard.

29-12-2006, 09:31
why am i not surprised the space pooches came first... ugh :(

i voted one of the many others. im a big fan of mentor legion, sons of medusa and pre heresy deathguard, as wll as my DIY marines which id class as one of the many others

29-12-2006, 18:07
Ultras all the way, they were my first army, the mighty grey knights come second (place, not army :) )

29-12-2006, 18:25
Why do Crimson Fist get their own category and Grey Knights and Raven Guard do not?...

Oh well, other is still winning.

Count de Monet
29-12-2006, 19:17
Space Wolves probably edge out for the top spot.

Followed by, in no particular order:

Space Sharks
Silver Skulls
pre-heresy Thousand Sons
White Scars

crouching lictor
29-12-2006, 19:28
Space Wolves are by far my favorite Chapter! Hell, I have almost 7k in the pups I have to like them!

29-12-2006, 20:12
Rainbow warriors.

29-12-2006, 20:49
Salamanders all the way. Dark Angels come in second, with Space Wolves as an honorable mention.

or Doom Eagles

31-12-2006, 13:51
My own chapter of course :D...eagle marines, they are so called sub-chapter of ultras,(see the color theme blue, only yellow has changed into black/white/gold(depends if veteran,marine,commander etc.))
