hey all im still new to 40 k.(just finished my chaos iw army). and i was thinking of starting a space marine army. im not sure witch chapter to start though.i just had a few newb questions that maby some one can help me out with.
#1. are the space wolfs the only chapter that can take a dreadnougt as a hq.
#2 i was looking throught the sm codex a wile ago at my local rouge trader and i found a coulor scheam that apealed to me. i think it was caled impearial fist. i was just wondering do the impearial fists have their own codex like black templars and blood angels or do they follow the vanilla army lists in the sm codex.
if any one can help me out id apreaciate it.

#1) Yes, only Space wolves get dreadnaughts as a HQ.
#2) No, the Imperial fists are a 'codex' chapter (i.e they have no traits and just use the standard space marine list).
You can do either. Imperial Fists actualy have some traits on page. 45 of the space marine codex.
Benifit: Suffer not the work of Heretics
Drawback: Death before Dishonour
you could either
A: Follow the traits.
B: Follow the Codex.
Whatever you feel like.
The imperial fists are a very striking army and will be imediately noticed by anyone in the room. I like the look and their use of firepower and terminators.

Dark Angels are well a shooty marine army.
Space Wolves = Space Vikings
Blood Angels = Guys who have really bad tempers.
The Space Wolves and the Black Templars are probably the best close combat SM armies.
You have answered your own question. Don't go for stats, go for what you like that looks good!Originally Posted by iced capp
Space wolves can have lots of units with bolt pistol and ccw and blood angels get +1 STR & I on the charge, they have the death company which can stand lots of wounds but sometimes they will just take off running at the enemy.
