The other day I was having a debate about the different space marine chapters and their fictional beliefs and moral values and my friend postulated that the Space Wolves were by far the fiercest and most ruthless of Astartes Chapters. I found this laughable, as Space Wolves are known for their fuzzy warm feelings towards Imperial Citizens, and it inspired me to start this topic.


As the title says, which Chapter or chapter's does the space marines do you believe to be the most willing to do what must be done? The most willing to let innocents die so that the mission can be accomplished? What is more important? Imperial Lives or Imperial Worlds?

We all know Chaos sacrafices innocent people all day long just for giggles so they don't count.

Dark Angels? Especially when it comes to the Fallen, Voice of the Emporer.

In contrast the least ruthless must be the Salamanders.

Howling Griffions (pretty sure it was them)

In the Soul drinkers series they was willing to let an entire planet burn to kill the soul drinkers, they even used the the entie remainder of an IG company as a suicidal decoy.

they will not let anything even killing an inquistior get in there way to fullfill an oath

The Fleshtearers, They know they're dammed, very few people survive a Fleshtearer engagement, friends, foes, civilians etc. They are ruthless in that sense, not because they want to be but rather because they're total fucking psychos.

The Marines Malevolent

On Armageddon they were willing to kill up to sixteen thousand innocent hostages just to wipe out five thousand orks, even going as far as to claim those people were not worth living. They are willing to do anything to kill their foe, regardless of who else may get hurt from it, because they seemingly believe they are better than the regular men and women of the Imperium.


Honestly, your being used as a meat shield by some bad guy and a marine will generally try to kill the enemy without hurting or killing you. A Marine Malevolent will sooner put a round in your head if it means that round kills whoever is using you as a shield.

Or about 2.3 billion people. But those were chaos, or possibly tainted by it, so it reduces the severity of the act by a small margin.
