    Which elites are the coolest?

    This is a poll I concocted to see which elites are favoured among marine players.

    Which elites are the coolest? I'm not just asking which perform the best in a game, although it may be a factor for you. Real question is which do you like, just because they're cool (concept, story, etc)?

    I made it a multiple option poll, but try to vote for as few as possible (let's say 5 at the most) because there's no point if everyone votes for everything.

    Only 30 options were allowed on the poll
    I omitted the following, but i figured marine players probably wouldn't go for them, otherwise they would be an inquisition player. however, if you would have voted for them over the other options on the poll, then say so in your post. also, if i omitted something else, and you were gonna vote for it, say so as well.

    Sternguards are going to wipe the floor on this, no doubt there. I must say, I love the fluff for Legion of the Damned, though they are pretty bad on the table.

    I am going with Assault Termies with Thunder Hammer and Shield. 3+ Inv cannot do any better then that. Plus they look really cool painted right,

    Assault termies don't die

    in a nut shell when you equip them with thunder hammers and storm shields HELLO they have a 2+ armor save and a 3+ involl name another unit that can do that and i'll choose them.

    Hands down I have to go with Sternguard. I never leave home without them. TH/SS Terminators have got to be my second favorite. There are a lot of good ones on there, but these two choices are the ones I use most frequently in my army.

    If I had to only chose one, it would be the be Wolf Scouts. Who doesn't like a unit that can OBEL w/a wolf guard leader and cause anti-tank havoc. Bye Bye Gard and Tau tanks

    HAHA, i went with everything that had "terminator" in it. I love em, theyre so underrated in my opinion. Also the furioso, and venerable dreadnaught are sweet to.

    Are ironclads elite or heavy support?
    Either way i voted Ironclad, 13 Armour 2 heavy flamers and to massive arms for smashing anything in CC.

    For Sanguinius! Death! Death!

    I love the Death Company. Nothing says stabby time like a bunch of blood crazed maniacs thinking the commander on the other side is Horus himself. Good times.

    Sternguard, Dreadnoughts (any flavour, Ironclads especially) or Grey Knight Terminators. Malleus Inquisitors, with their anti-Deep Strike Mystics, can also be cool for denying your opponent safe places to land his troops, but aside from that they're almost useless.

    You really need to split the Temple Assassin option into four, because each one of the Temple Assassins fulfils a vastly different role on the table. And put an option for Daemonhosts up there too; they're hardly the greatest Elite option in the world and lord knows they're prohibitively expensive, but I'd vote for them anyway because they're such a hoot

    EDIT: I forgot about the Death Company. They're cool too, especially with Jump Packs and no Chaplain
