Me and my friend usually play 1500pt battles. I'm just starting collecting Space Marines and am unsure what is best to get for this amount of pts. I have played with other armies before but as i am new to Space marines i would really appreciate some help.
What is best to get for 1500pts?
Thanks - Not to be a bully, but on Librarium Online we have certain standards as far as the quality of the writing allowed in posts. I've made a few corrections above.

Iv found the best thing for SM s to ALWAYS have 2 10man tactical sqds, being a blood angel i obviously have a rhino for each squad aswell, these squads are tough, have a good amount of firepower, can hold their own in Close combat and with the rhino they are easy to re deploy to cut off enemy, re enforce friendlys or capture objectives.

I'd suggest reading the stickied threads to get an idea of where to start. Additionally, a stop by the Space Marine Army List section might give you a few ideas as to where to start.
I'd think that your first order of buisness would be to decided which Chapter of Space Marines you're interested in playing, as many of them have differing playstyles and unique units which will influence your choices as far as making army lists and tactics go.
Hope that helps a bit,
One of the reasons that Space Marines are so popular is becase they are so forgiving. A great place to start is to visit your local store and decide which figures you like the most. If you really like the whirlwind then it makes sense to make sure that you can use them effectively in your army. Because marines are so forgiving there are no wrong choices about what you want to use in your army so go with the chapter and models that you like the most.
When you get to the tabletop you will find that even the most appalling space marine list can still beat other armies and provide plenty of enjoyment.
Reading background fiction is a great way of enjoying the rich supporting universe without coughing up piles of cash for the miniatures.
