It is a real matter of choice.
Your basic tactical squad will probably be present.
Sternguard are great in the new codex. All the Hqs are pretty solid now with the librarian probably being the best overall.

I would recomend gettinga ssault on black reach if you can find a copy. It is a captain, a tac squad, 5 terminators, and a dreadnought as well as quite a few orks for a severely discounted 60 dollars. Its a great start to marines.

Yep, getting Assault on Black Reach is an awesome way to start.

All in all though, make sure to have at least a first draft of your army list before posting in this section. Thanks!

Don't do the Sternguard they're really just more expensive tactical marines with special ammunition. Problem is most armies have some anti marine weaponry and they will blow these guys to heck unless boarded up in a transport and unless it's a raider or drop pod they won't make it.

But as said before get the Black Reach it's an excellent start.

I started with the assault box and then got the space marine battleforce. You get a good solid core to your army and save some money too.

the problem you have with collecting marines is that they are SUCH A GOOD allround army that you really can talor your army to basically whatever you want. shooting, hourde, assault, tanks mix etc
