why is it that you started marines SM were my first succesful army and I chose them do to the fact that every warrior can really be a completely convertable kitted out charecter plus the DA are an extremely dark and gothic almost on the brink of seeming evil. plus the robes look awesome.
"They shall all taste OBLIVION!,.....which tastes like Red Bull, which is disgusting."
I chose Space Marines (particualarly Space Wolves) for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted an army that was relatively balanced, that would be able to do well at all aspects of the game. In my mind, the SM's fit that role pretty nicely, gave me a way to get used to the game before picking up a more complex aisle.
I picked the Space Wolves particularly for several distinct reasons. I started playing back in 3rd edition when the majority of the Space Marines were identical except for differing color schemes. The Space Wolves saw a few players in my area, but not very many. I liked the feel of the army as I was looking over the codex, so I went with them.
A second reason that I picked the Wolves was that I have always been fascinated with the Norse/Germanic "barbarian" traditions, especially their mythologies. For that reason the Space Wolves appealed to me.
Because I fell in love with 'em, BT particlarly because of the whole crusader/fanatic thing, color scheme, wicked iconography. Plus it's worth it to see the look on my Tau friend's face when he gets his butt whooped by "crap marines".
I need the bugger so I can see!
I play space wolves because of this one and only reason they are VIKINGS. And vikings destroy everyone.
I picked SM because they are like knights. And I really love the whole "champion" idea, as I love medieval literature. So, I was saying to myself, "These guys are all like Siegfried from the Niebelungenlied!"

I chose Blood Angels becuase I wanted to do an army (sm in general) that could have many different combinations and ways to create squads. I liked being able to have a choice on wargear on people. And i chose blood angels becuase i liked their fluff and going crazy on people is fun!
Back from a long adventure.
i started sm cause of the idea that every man is a tank in there own rite, there nature of being loners self contained, along with strong devotion to there work (kill bad things) and my fetish for assault cannons :wub: . there just so beautiful brings a tear to my eye its the rotating barrels way more impressive to watch, then just bullets coming out a stationery barrel
"my life may not remember, but my death will not be forgotten"
"kill a man your a murderer, kill hundreds a king, them all a god"
I chose deathwing (terminators) because with every other army I failed my saves 90% of the time... (my dice like rolling 2 on armor saves), and because assult cannons rock on rerminators
"I have died a thousand deaths, and I will die a million more..."
I chose Marines cus they are hard as nails and i love their models.My first army was Ultramarines,and well i chose them purely because that is how the models were painted on the tactical squad box.
Then my next marine army was Blood Angels,which i chose them for the fact that they are monsters in assault and are a really mean fierce army.
And for my current army,the Ravenwing,i chose because i love the style of gameplay that they excel at.Very speedy,hard hitting,mobile and i love their hit and run tactics.
I also plan to do a DIY chapter in the future.
The main reason probably i love marines so much is the models.They just look so cool and hardcore.And you can create some awesome conversions.And the models are getting even better as time goes on,just look at the new templars,ah they are cool!
