Default If you could be a Space Marine, what chapter/legion would you choose?

Traitor or loyalist.

For me personally, I'll have to go with the Space Wolves. My favorite legion is the Alpha Legion but they have barely been described whereas with the former, they've been fleshed out to an amazing degree.

I love their sense of brotherhood. It feels closer than the other legions and their wolf-like senses and overall character makes it understandable why they're one of GW's most popular legions.

If the Alpha Legion received the same treatment then I'd go with them in a heartbeat.

What about you? I'd be extremely surprised if anyone chose to become a World Eater.

Psh, being a World Eater would be awesome! Not a care in the world, just spilling blood all day.

In seriousness though I think I'd be an Emperor's Child. I don't see how anybody could choose a life of pain, hard work, intense dedication and self sacrifice that pretty much every other Astartes is stuck with, when you could be having fun all day every day.

If I had to choose one I'd choose the wolves, they're friends to humanity and are willing to sacrifice allot to protect them.

If I had other options It's a toss up between salamanders, iron hands and raven guard and wolves.

If I had to choose one of the Chapters of the Adeptus Astartes... it would be the Iron Snakes of Ithaka.

If I could be one... I'd be running in the opposite direction screaming. The life of a space marine sounds horrible.

If I had to be one, I'd probably go with an Ultramarine quite frankly. They aren't my favorite chapter, but they are well balanced, respected, have stable geneseed, and a mini-Empire instead of a single homeworld (even if it is a mere shadow of what they had pre-Heresy). Plus, if it's in Ward's universe I'd probably be able to spit fireballs and fart lightning.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

fuck it, im not going to do the relatively safer chapters/legions, im becoming a grey knight, preferably a librarian of the grey knights, maybe the fluff will allow me to be nigh invulnerable and give me the ability to slay a primarch.

Or maybe just become a space marine that hangs out on the edge of civilization lording over a planet.

Grey Knight.

There's a curry house down the road which can do that to you.

For me, it would either be Emperor's Children preHeresy, Sons of Horus or Alpha Legion.

Post Heresy, exorcists. All those 'i beat cancer pics'? Fuck that 'i was possessed by a daemon and defeated it'.

Actually, that must be how the Exorcist works. '100 billion likes and i defeat my possessing daemondjsjsjtjskfjrksjtjjsktjgjskfigjslsogjskekffd sj...'
