Hi! I'm new and have decided to make a space marines army , but I was wondering what are the most commonly seen space marine chapters and their color schems? I was just wondering if its like ultramarines or Blood Angels , Thanks for the help guys!
I would say the top five are Ultramarines (blue), Blood Angels (red), Dark Angels (dark green), Black Templars (black), and Space wolves (bluish grey).

Wikipedia has articles on all of the big ones including color schemes, fluff, and organization. That would be a good first place to look.

Take an army that you like and make a colour scheme that you like. Say that they are a succesive chapter of .................., make up some fluff and your ready to play and have an almost unique chapter.

Ultramarines are a bad chapter. People play them to be very versatile instead of using one attack pattern everytime.

Generally I'd say Ultramarines, because they seem to be the "official" chapter of GW. But, there are also alot of Templars because they have been shoved down our throats for the last year or so. But don't let that deter you if you want to play them.
I'd say decide on what kind of army you want to play, static shooting or assault, then look at the paint schemes. If you cant find a match you like, by all means make up one of your own.
BTW, DARK ANGELS RULE!
yeah,ultramarines are the most advertised SM chapter GW have.Although the black templars are becoming quite popular now.id say that Black templars are GW's new in your face were gonna rape you with this chainsword army,replacing blood angels.
Id say your best bet is to go with a colour scheme you like.and then just say your a succesor chapter of such and such.And id also have a look at the space marine section of the gallery,you'll get way more diverse chapter colour scheme's there than in any GW book.
INNOCENCE IS NOT IMMUNITY
I'd say to go for Ultramarines. They are the 'official' GW Chapter; named and styled off Roman supremacy, perfectly balanced army list, and a ridiculously powerful Chapter Master.
For those who say the Ultramarines are boring and crap, I have four words and two punctuation marks for you. Tyranid Hunters & Honour Guard.
What other Chapter has a squad of power weapon wielding monsters who can bear the Chapter Banner? What other Chapter can use this Marine in a TACTICAL SQUAD? What other Chapter (apart from certain traits) have Anti-tyranid specialists who can fire Hellfire bolter rounds?
Where else can you get a guy with 2 powerfists and a Storm bolter? Who has Terminator Armour but could still lead a normal Command squad if he wants?
Get the Ultramarines. They're here to stay.

Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
Well in terms of sheer numbers I'd probably say Ultramarines, but Space Wolves kind of have a cult following, once a Space Wolf, Always a Space Wolf.
I hate to say it but there really is no 'Most Popular Space Marine Chapter'. There really all about even. But probably the most common are Divergent Codex Chapters. Becasue people to like to have an army that they can call their own.
But personaly I think the Dark Angels owns all.:yes: The fact that they are really the most versitile Chapter of the Space Marines says it all.
