    it means marines that aren&#39;t space wolves, blood angels etc etc.

    i don&#39;t think they are particularly hard to use.

    Vanilla marines are marines that follow the codex, with no special rules or chapter traits, although I don&#39;t know how that will evolve with the new codex...

    Because apparently they are boring and bland. But with the release of the new codex it really sticks it up there pipehole. Ultramarines are just as hard to use as any other army. And if used correctly can be devastatingly effective. Because they dont have to be CC orientated or Shooty orientated, they can get a beautiful mix between the two.

    Invicticus.
