well as the title suggests, i would like to know what you guys think is the best and or most competitive Space Marine codex/chapter.
Y'know, on many occasions these past few days you've said almost exactly what I would've before I got the chance to, and all I could do is quote you.Character-wise:
Game- Petro Kantor, allowing Stern Guard to be scoring is all types of win.
Fluff- Cpt. Cortez, aka Mr Invincible
Game- Space Wolves, no question
Fluff- Ultramarines, they've sacrificed and given more to the Imperium than any other Chapter.
Not the damn Ultramarines. Idiot smurfs are a stain on the hobby.
Are you complaining that all UM armies are blue or have I missed something?hahahahah intersting, personaly i dislike UM quite a lot. most everyone plays them, you always see the same exact colour scheme. And it is quite boring to face the same army no matter where you play time and again. Didn't know that people favored The space puppies so much in terms of win. was there a recent codex change or somthing cause all the Space wolfs i've played were garbage.
I'm always amazed when this happens, but I actually have to agree with Stella here. The Blood Ravens are a partial concept of something 40k fluff heads have tried to steer people away from for ages because it is such an overused and badly done idea, next to "my chapter is missing legion A or B." (The other bad idea being "my chapter bears the secret that it uses traitor geneseed/is geneseed spliced from loyal and traitor geneseed/is made from altered geneseed.")never, just NEVER say bad things about ultramarines and then turn around to say the bastard child of GW, the blood ravens, are best.
Alright, I pose a challange to you then; find five players of any other chapter (all playing the same chapter) and lets see how many of them have vastly different colour schemes. I don't just mean different company colour schemes (generally the shoulder guard trim or something of that nature) I mean find yourself, say, five Salamander players and lets see how many of them do not paint the bulk of their force in green.Anensenef said:personaly i dislike UM quite a lot. most everyone plays them, you always see the same exact colour scheme.
I've seen all the UM special characters painted up at GW Stoke but they were all painted in the Hawk Lords colour scheme (Purple and Gold like pre-heresy Emperor's Children) so I suppose that doesn't really count.I'd love to see just 2 ultramarine armies in my lifetime, I've seen only 1 so far out of 14yrs of gaming, but the amount of (badly painted) blood ravens I saw after DOW reared its ugly head could only be counted on the hands of 2 south american children whos parents are brothers, sisters and cousins all at the same time.
