I, among others, wonder about the many Space Marine chapters out there. I am starting on Space Marines, and thought it would be best to know who's who. If the resident Marine players would please name the many famous chapters, as well as identifying traits, that would be swell. There are many chapter facts that I probably have mixed up, and would like to get them straight. Also, please include general rules (don't be too specific, just give us the jist of what makes the army special), as well as sub-armies (Dark Angels have Deathwing and Ravenwing, but do other armies have similar things?). How do these chapters do/fight in battle? General strategies to follow? I'm hoping that this will be a sort of general guide to chapters for the new Marines, and perhaps a little useful for the old. Thanks, all.
My gaming group's new motto: That army you're using is overpowered because it hurts my guys, codex is broken and needs a rewrite.
well if you look in the codex there is a "box"in which traits for the first foundings and orther famous chapters are explained.
close range fire fight, specialise in melta and flame weapons
assault marines all over the place (up to 60 of them!:w00t: )
fast assaults and rapid deployment
lightning assaults with bikes
siege specialits, sturdy guys who won't quit
value information very highly and have a lot of psykers
all mechanics, techmarines and dreadnoughts
almost destroyd by orcs, and so the fists are rathter pissed at them.
hope this helps you a bit.
about traits really look in the codex, we don't give rules away here so easily
and this is a bit odvious but:
Dark angels- shooty never fall back (have extra plasma), can field a all termie army or a all bike/landspeader amy.
space wolfs- assaulty, can have extra HQ, can take multiple power wepons/power fists in tac squads, have amazing dev squads, can field 13th company, can use lemin russ tanks.
blood angels- extremly-assaulty, can get extra powerfull toops at the begining of the game (blood rage)
waiting for the sunrise!
All in all there are 1000 loyal chapters. All the existing 'official' ones are listen in this site.
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
