Is there any way using the canon rules to get three chaplains into an Ultramarine force?

Also, is it better to put a chaplain with a 9 man assault squad or in a 5 man vanguard squad (that's what I have)?

Nope. I'm not aware of any space marine army that can take chaplains as anything other than HQ choice.

As for which of those squads is a better use of a chaplain I would say either would make equal use of the chaplain (depending what weapons you give them). If I had to choose probably the vets as they are in smaller number so their attacks need to count more. Hope this helps :)

any standard Marine army cannot take three Chappies.

BA, i believe, can take six Chappies:

2 Reclusiarchs (HQ)

3 Chaplains (ELIITES)

1 Chaplain Lemartes (as part of a DA squad, which is a TROOPS choice)

Yeah the only army to field more than two chappies is the blood angels, who can field a whopping six!! Astorath the grim, a reclusiarch, 3 chappies as elites, and lemartes as an upgrade to the dc.

on the subbgect of who to put him with. I would suggest the assult marines for 1 and 1 reason only. You can "Heroic Intervention" if you have an IC in the unit.
