    what space marine chapter should i do?

    hi
    ive been a bit in the dark on what army i wanted to start until i realised i wanted a space marine army. but then it hit me what chapter.so ill tell you a bit about me. ive been playing 40k for a long time and have had many armies im up for a challenge when it comes to painting and gaming and i prefer the combat phase over the shooting because its more of a challenge for units to battle it out in combat than with a gun.
    so i was hoping i could get some advice and opnions on which chapter from the nice people at LO.

    Dark angels, there about to get a new Codex and a slew of new models, so just wait a little and do them.

    From what you've put there I'd say definitely not Dark Angels. Seeing that they lean much more towards shooting than combat it seems that they, and the imperial fists would be your last choice.

    Personally I think you should look at the list of chapters, find one that captures your imagination and re-make it using traits. It seems much more interesting to me than making a re-hash of one of the legendary chapters.

    Take a look at this website (link at the bottom) and see if there aren't any chapters there you like the look of.

    edit: Here's another link that you may find useful. It'll show you the colour schemes for most of the chapters listed there.

    Based on my limited experience, I'd say Space Wolves is your best bet. They are an... unusual space marines army, for sure, and if you want close combat, well, it doesn't get much closer than with this bunch, except maybe Black Templars.

    But I gotta say, Space Wolves have a much more interesting crew of models, each with a very feral, raw, barbaric look. Think of the ancient Celts a la "Braveheart" mixed in with Native American shamanism, and you've got their look. Lotsa animal furs/pelts adorn the power armor. Good stuff.

    Also, check the Space Marines subforums here. There's a whole thread dedicated to the different chapters.

    I would say other which is Crimson Fist!!!!!!!! They are fun to paint, and they look good with the new red shiny power fist!!! Well if you dont want to do them there are imperial fist which are the best devastators. Then i would have to say blood angels because... they are blood angels. But i know that the next chapter's that GW is doing is either space wolves, relictors or salamanders.

    Good Luck Upon your marine quest!

    DEfinetly Space Pupps. Their fluff is awesome, have fantastic conversion opportunities, look cool, and are very hack&slash in cc. They are beer-drinking, ass-kicking barbarinas in space. Sounds appealing, doesnt it ?

    doubt it, due to the fact that they are trait-chapters. Maybe salamanders, cause they are first-founding, but not before space wolves and blood angels. But relictors-who?

    The Black Templars love their close combatness, when they get shot at, they often end up running forwards.
