What chapter is the most common?
Glory for the emperor!
BA used to be the most commonly played, but nowadays BT's and SW's both seem to be pretty strong. Even Ultramarines are making a pretty big debut as a playable army(because they are a pretty nice army nowadays). Maybe you should make a poll about it.
Nevermore Chapter: 6200 pts; 97/49/11; Longest Streak: 9 Wins/4 Losses; Nearing Completion
No, its definately between BT's and the crummy,and un cool ultramarines
The commandments of the space marines
1) thou shalt not put a 'honk if u think im sexy sticker on the sisters rhino
2)C-3P0 is NOT a necron ambasador
3) thou shalt not ask a banshee, to karaoke
4)thou shalt not ask the inquisition to bring down the exterminatus on you ex-wife
The way I see it, I mostly play against space puppies, either that or Chaos Marines.

"THAT I.G. GUY WITH THAT OVERDEVELOPED TRIGGER FINGER"
The most common chapter in my area are blood angels. I don't know anyone who has Space Wolves. Ultramarines are pretty common too.
I play Ultramarines and I like them so much because of their fluff. I LOVE the idea that these guys are stern and rigid and they stick to their rules. I LOVE the idea that they see themselves and their mission as being very idealistic. These guys take themselves very seriously and I like that.
Just like when I play D&D I LOVE paladins! People say they are boring and you can't steal or cheat or lie so they are no fun. I play fantasy games (and 40K) with the intention that I am going to be the hero. I want to be the good guy that people can count on to be honorable. 'I don't care how much the job pays, I'll go save them!'
I actually considered playing Chaos Space Marines. I read the codex, and read the fluff. I hate their nasty look, and I could not stand the idea of playing an army of evil. I can't see me playing orcs either. The models are so ugly and they are too evil for my taste.
Another reason I like Space Marines is because I spent 6 years in the US Marines. I am a Marine! As the saying goes: "Once a Marine, always a Marine."
So that is my 2 cents worth! I like Ultramarines!
"For the Emperor!!"
Once a Marine, always a Marine.
Fortunately where I play (our close nit gaming group) there is a healthy mix of opponets. Nids Chaos orks Eldar sometimes crons. However when me (sm) my brother (iron warriors) and my coursins (eldar and nids) went to the gw in chicago about 1.5 hours away we found that everyone there except for one person and us had some sort of power armoured troops the most common were DIY chapters.

It differs from area to area....but blood angels are the most common in my area.
I respect Ultramarines as they still have the same stats as standard ones and they look extremly kewl if converted and painted nicely.
