This is just characters from the standard Space Marine codex!!
Which space marine special character do you think is the best in terms of effectiveness and best value for price? I for one would either say Vulkan or Tigurius.

It depends entirely on the rest of your army, in the case of most Vanilla characters. My personal preference isn't even on your list: Torias Tellion, at 50 points, is easily the single most often used character in my army....and he's totally worth it.
If you're just thinking in terms of generic badassness, I gotta give it to Mephiston. I tried him out the other day, and he murdered things.
For special characters I meant HQs in the standard SM codex. The reason I like vulkan is because of his invsv+ and the fact that he can make make flamers and meltas twin linked along with his close combat capabilities.
Belial. No vote on above poll.

I've got to give it to Lysander.
4 Wounds with Eternal Warrior!
Mastercrafted S10 with a +1 on the damage table!
I know Stubborn isn't that great. And at 200 points he's a bit overpriced considering his base 3 Attacks. But he'll single handedly trash any of the other SC's in the Codex and not die to a single Powerfist/Forceweapon hit like a little girl.
Ya, it's definitely between Lysander and Vulkan for me, but because they play so drastically different from each other, they are really hard to compare. I'm still giving it to Vulkan though, cause I love that he help the whole army, not just add some bite to a given unit. They are both really good though.
On a side note, has anyone ever used Cassius? Maybe it's just me, but he seems pretty pointless.
What the best character for your army is realy depends on your list and play style. I don't play with the vanilla codex that often but when I do I go with Vulken. He's fairly kick-ass in his own rite and his chapter tactics realy improve the killyness of my army.
BURN THEM! BURN THEM ALL!
In the 41st millenium there is no such thing as paranoia, the universe realy is out to get you!
The best character is depends on the synergy he brings in your list.
That is the reason why I voted Pedro. He makes my sternies scoring and gives +1 attack to the units in range.
I'm not all that convinced that stubborn is superior to the combat tactics rule though. It greatly depends of the situation you find yourself in. (and then you might end up cursing yourself for it) Vulcan is a close second though!
@ Papa_Wheely: Cassius isn't all that bad. For 125 pts he's decent. mastercrafted combi flamer, FNP, T6 makes him not so bad. I only use him in fun lists though and not for competitive play.
Well I like the fluff around Vulkan He'Stan searching the galaxy for ancient artifacts left by the Primarch. The saves are also the best a 2+ and a 3+ inv. not much better than that, as far as saves are concerned. Reading the Salamander fluff made me play the game, I like the Blood Angels fluff too. I just like the idea of your Primarch leaving like a trail to find him, Thats what I like to think. I hate the model that GW gave him. He is holding the spear all bass ackwards, I had a little fun remodeling him. Well thats my thoughts.
