Default Favorite Space Marine Chapter

What are you guys's favorite Space Marine Chapter?

Mine would be the Black Templars ^_^.

Close combat based, fanatically devoted to the Emperor, dont follow the Codex Astartes in #'s (Isnt there possibly up to 5000 Black Templars?) and engage in a never ending crusade :D

I have to say the Dark Angels. They have the most mystery. They have this air of, "No, we don't need any help. We will cleanse our own." They are on a permanant quest for redemption of the fallen.

Gotta go with the BA's, again their cool fluff (not the Deus books! :evil: ) and their nice shiny red armour does It for me, also the DC ain't nothing to sniff at!

Imperial Fists. Mainly because they're yellow. But also, to quote from Wiki:

The Deus books are blasphemy against the Angel.

The Blood Angels are the pinnacle of perfection, as was their Primarch. My username is quite misleading-- I was linked to Heresy-online from a Chaos site, where my username was The Son of Horus. Virtually everywhere else, I use the username The Sanguine Angel.

I'm gonna go with the Iron Hands. Bionic supermen are just cool. And they are all mechanical and stuff.

If we are talking main stream chapters (else it will be my own) i would have to say either Salamanders always had a soft spot for the sons of vulkan - must be the pyromaniac in me. Or Space Wolves - Vikings in space YAAAARRR! (also my first ever 40k models).

The Fire Hawks.

Being able to burst into a flaming effigy in war is pretty hawt, no pun intended. Then there is the getting trapped in the warp and becoming the Legion of the Damned.

If I have to go mainstream, it's Dark Angels. Their chapter sums up the whole Imperium. Intolerant of the outside world, bitter with heresy, and on an unending quest to rid the treachery from their past.

Imperial Fists for regular chapters. There's something about yellow...

otherwise, it has to be the Grey Knights...
