I play space wolves and am looking foward to starting a new space marine army, and i kinda like ultramarines and dark angels. well i currently have a ultramarines army but i dont play them...cause u know.....they have no traits or anything and their color scheme is starting to get boring.
SO what do u guys think, should i start on a dark angels argels army, take apart my ultras and make em dark angels, or should i just stick with ultras?
WHOS BETTER ultramarines or dark angels???

MAKE THEM BESERKERS! BWHAHA, BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
Seriously though, I'ld go with Imperial Fsts. Nobody plays them and lysander's pretty sweet looking

Im might be buying a imperial fist army based around lysander but I would go for a diy chapter there so much more fun.
Well since DA and UM are both marines, take a look at special characters.
UM: Tyrannic War Veterans, Honour Guard, Master of Ultramar Marneus Calgar, Chaplain Cassius, Cheif Librarian Tigrius
DA: Ravenwing, Deathwing, Grand Master Azrael, Veteran Sergeant Naaman, Master of the Ravenwing, Interrogator-Chaplain Asmodai, Ezekiel
Ultramarines are a little bland and boring to me.
Dark Angels are more interesting and would be much more fun to collect.Plus the fluff of the Dark Angels is pretty cool.Model wise Dark Angels all the way as well.With the new BT sprues you can pinch there tabard models and use them on your Dark Angels.
But gaming wise you cant seperate them,it depends on your skill to use them.
The choice is basically what you're into and what you want in a army...:yes:
For instance ultramarines like you've said are kind of getting....old and don't carry many special traits.
(although i am a ultramarines player) :shifty:
And I can imagine you have a suitable, previous, ultramarines army that is enough to take apart and paint over to begin a new and improved Dark angels army...which it seems you are into the "special traits" that are in a specific army. In all fairness ultramarines do have their share of "special traits" (not great ones but fair enough)
But, to tell you the truth both Ultramarines and Dark Angels are personal favorites of mine and this is a real tough decision.
In my opinion...I would wait for the Dark angels to be...how should i say "remastered" if you would, by games workshop and then base your decision to what you really want.
New models and some new rules might affect your decision and a rather "big' decision like that is something one must really think about...which obviously you are doing...but i say just wait..think deeply..but hold off for a little while
I know this wasn't much help but i hope i gave you somewhat a little bit of advice and good luck...and remember to think about what you deeply desire and need to fulfill your ultimate wants.
PS. Don't go to the table with a army you "just have," go to the table confident and happy, knowing that what you have coming for the opponent is what you want coming for them
because then you know win or lose you had pride and confidence in your army:yes:

You're alive...cant get any better than that!
just my 5 cents...
personally i prefer DA. They have way cooler special characters.
DA have better fluff, and i love Ravenwing and Deathwing too.
But most of all, DA have a Chapter Master who's useful in the game! As opposed to Marneus Calgar with his stupid powerfists, always getting murdered by high I units...:w00t:
I've been playing DA since I started 40k about 4 years ago and I love them. They do have the single best weapon in the Sword of Secrets by far. Personally though, I'd wait till next Dec or so when the new DA codex and sprues come out.
both are good chapters, and model wise the UM are probably better, but the rumours suggest that the DA are being tarted up next, so theres very little to choose between the models. however, if you want a fluffy army, the DA are far more interesting and have the best SM CC weapon in the game, the sword of secrets. not to mention the whole cypher & the fallen thing...
oh really. iv'e heard there going to release the da codex and new models later on this year, And from the responses Im gonna lean towards DA because Ive read the fluff and its cool, also the models kick ass, Im just gonna wait til the new DA come out then Ill decide what to do, then. THX
