hmmm....common knowledge would say ultras; i guess a case could be made for dark angels or the templars as their codices/model range rework are relatively recent....

it's funny how i've never seen a ultra marine army in real life only in pictures the most common one for me would be blood angels

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

I think it's probably true that there aren't as many Ultras armies as people think. I play them, but I can't think of any others I've seen in the last couple of years. Of course, that could be because people are ashamed.

Not seen so many DA armies round here, mostly seems to be home-made or BA.

I've never seen an Ultra-smurf player before. Plenty of Blood Angels though.

I have seen alot of Ultrasmurfs (and I hate them so much >.< ) then it's followed up by Dark angels (use to see Blood Angels and Templars but not anymore.

I'm not insane I just lack sanity, there's a difference....................somewhere

vanilla marines. unpainted, barely assembled, and 25&#37; are proxies.

*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

Ultra's were the most popular in the previous codex, but with the addition of the traits, it's more and more codex chapters have come out. In my game club, other than people taking Grey Knights and Deathwatch, there are no SM armies (out of 20+ SM collectors).

Chaos is far different - out of 30+ collectors, there are about 20 Khornate, 5 Slaanesh, 3 Tzeentch and 2 Nurgle.
