space wolves kick ass. they're up in your face hand-to-hand combat maniacs. then blood angels come second . and ultramarines suck. cuz they're all queer.

I think that the space marines are all over rated...as they can not last a battle as long as the Imperial Guard or have as much impact. If I had to have some in my army, I would choose the Dark Angels as they are dedicated.

People think they're 'ard with power armour and terminator armour but people are starting to get bored of them because nothing new's coming out and they don't have as much variety as imperial guard or some other races.

Eldar is better than all the space marine chapters. Dark Reapers are better than their missile launchers, the avatars are better than their commanders. There are 2 things that are good about them. 1: Their standard armour. 2: The Shaken rule (But they're still terrified)

He he he im tired of space marines they are gettin lame. The only chapters that are good are Ultramarines or the ones people invent.

space marines suck! orks rock. everyone thinks that space marines kickbut just becuase they have armor, orks have flak armore and so what. space marines cost to much points and there so easy to paint, orks on the other hand have a lot of detail and there the only ones who can allie with choas.

Like all you wrestling fans out there, just like the WOLF PAC, ULTRAMARINES are just too sweeeeeeeet.

i'm so damned sick of space marines everyone plays them they're good but not incredible. good tanks you say? what about imperial? terminators? how 'bout chaos they gots 'em and demons and reaper autocannons. good characters? chaos again. dreadnoughts? eldar, chaos. their armor is damn cool though

Space marines are all the same in the new rules. They won the 1998 tournement and one person had a space marine army and got the award for best painted. I play Ultramarines and they kick ass. There coming out with a lot of new pieces for all the armies.

I love Marines they kick ass,well only the Dark Angels and Blood Angels kick ass Ultramarines blow goats my favourite army is my Dark Angels because of the new rules and their landspeeders rule and my second fav is Blood Angels because they're a bunch of close combat psychos who rule on the battle field
