I know I'm an IG player and I know that I'm posting in the SM forum but, I am wondering about why is it that every SM player has a grudge against the Ultramarines SM Chapter? Everywhere I go everyone has something mean to say about them. So, what's up?
Good question! Maybe it's because they always have to do things "by the book"? Not that I have anything agains Ultramarines...
What do you mean, like what's their history?
Ok ok so I'm a chaos player....
But if I'm not completely wrong weren't the ultramarines the gene seed for most of the new foundings in the SMarines after the Horus heresy?

I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
I both love and hate them.
I have a huge Ultramarines Epic army, which I love, and I hate them for always beeing the desicive factor in the Hive fleets defeat in every major invasion (Kraken, Behemoth)
and they follow the book to the letter, literally, as their primarch wrote the darn thing
I am new to Warhammer 40K in terms of Tabletop Wargame, but I am playing computer games for 15 years now.
The Chaos Gate and The Final Liberation are amongst my favourite, and that is one other reasons because I choose Ultramarines.
Dating back in 90's there was a game Space Crusade. At those times I hadnt know nothing about W40K. But the game was cool. I usually played Ultramarines.
It's a pity that so few PC games in WH40K Universe exist. And only chapters presented are Ultramarines (mostly), Blood Angels (at SC, Space Hulk and Rites of War) and Imperial Fist (SC).
May be, this games' creators are secret Ultramarines fans? ;-)
"Give me a hundred of Space Marines. Or, failing that, give me a thousand of another men."
Ultramarines make themselves the example for the other chapters to follow in an attempt keep the chapters in some sort of order and not allow the divergence that causes traitor legions becuase they become too independ and begin to question things like the emperor.
They are the keepers of order :!:
but why everyone bags them,
what with all these BA,SW and BT's roving about?
It's a complete mystery.........
i guess we'll never know :wink:
*shaking head whilst looking down*
People hate them so much because they are often played badly by newbies (no offense to those newbies who do play them, but let's be honest ). They are often shoddily painted and put together.
Not to mention we can't look at a box without seeing them.
And let's face it, who likes blue anyway?
Oh yeah, and they were too busy kicking 'Nid ass to try and save their Emperor to whom they swore allegiance.
personally i think that ppl r bored of ultra marines thanx 2 the fact that they r seen everywhere newbies,boxes occasionally veterans but ne way i think that it is also down 2 the fact that there r many other chapters that offer better paint schemes & rules (personally i like salamanders)
but that's my personal opinion :lol:
