    I've seen this term used several dozen times on this site and still can't get a grasp on the meaning. So now I have to ask it. What are Vanilla Marines?

    Vanilla Marines are name for a home made chapter or straight from the Space Marines codex with no special rules. Some chapters with a "flavor" or special rules are Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Iron Hands ,and Space Wolves.
    Some people call space marines SMurfs.
    Space Marines=SM
    Ultramarines=blue with white hats(veterens)

    Is it generally better to play as Vanilla Marines or Marines with "flavor?"

    That entirely depends on your way of playing and how much importance you place on Fluff

    I don't think fluff matters all that much. I'd rather see the end result on the table to know whether I did something right or wrong in construction/playing. I already know that everyone has their own style of play, but I don't know what mine is. Is there some sort of quiz somewhere on the net that can help?

    So, based on the previous post (and I appologze for double-posting), should I go with Vanilla Marines or Marines with "flavor?"

    Most Vanilla Marines I see are a little on the shooty side.
    Many "flavor" (GW ones) chapters are cc oriented.

    OK, I've decided. I'm going to start a 'Nilla Marine force (I assume that's the proper contraction for Vanilla), but try to not let it get too shooty. Next stop, Concord, NH (for the Codex). You don't want me posting an illegal list, do you? Thought not.

    I should be the one calling you "sir," sir. You're the one with seniority, sir. I'm just a dipstick newbie, sir!
