my question is this- what kind of traits do you use in your armies? i was orginally going to stick true to ultramarines, but now that there are traits and people talk about them so much, i was curious as to whether or not to use them. i was reading through some of the advantages/disadvantages wondering is it really worth it to use them or not...but i guess it also depends on your opponents army...anyways what do you guys think? traits or no traits?
The traits are all about personal preference and playing style. Someone who likes devestator squads would obviously want to pick traits that will let him take advantage of that units. Its generally best to pick traits and disadvantages that form an overall strategy for their army or follow the your created chapter's backround.
Going without traits obviously gives you the best all around choice in options, and there are no drawbacks to being without traits. In the end its up to you to decide whether or not you want to specialize in certain areas such as assualt, spee, or heavy support in return for weaknesses in other areas, or simply use the list strait with everything available to you without restriction.

traits rock to be sure. you can make them personal and able to fit any fighting style. they are also great for fluff
I use them coz they allow me to pay my army the way i want it, a quick moving marine force with plenty of plasma..
I think traits are fantastic and a great thing that has been brought in.
They allow you to make a really cool DIY chapter and give traits to them suit your playing style.
And as has been said they can give your army some really cool fluff and gives you an exciting unique space marine army.
All for traits!
