ok im new and i want to go space marines with grey knights like the daemonhosts for example. also what is the difference between dark angels and blood angels im thinking of going space marine/ grey knights or blood angels/ space marines and i want to try and get a good shooting army. like a bunch of laz guns and plasma cannons.
I personally use Space Wolves, since they're like 'super marines' when it comes to close combat and survivabilty in battle.
If you want a space marine army that can waste an enemy at long range, get Black Templars.
If you want a space marine army that moves very fast, get blood angels.
If you want all round, go normal.
Personally, i use Space Wolves. They fight very uniquely, and some people make the very stupid mistake of thinking Space Wolves are just like Space Marines.
Only the dead have seen the end of war.
The difference between Blood Angels and Dark Angels boils down to the fact that they are two "Chapters" of the entirety of the Space Marine force - each of the 18 original chapters that Games Workshop has built a history for (2 have been left blank so you can make your own!) comes compelte with its own identity, battle tactics and characteristics e.g. the Dark Angels spend their time hunting their brothers who have given into the Dark Side as it were whilst the Blood Angels harbour a defective gene which makes them powerful in close combat but sometimes unpredictable.
The best way forward is to buy the Space Marine Codex if you've decided you want to use them (always a good start as they're really hard) and have a read through that and then pick which chapter you want to do - you can even do a "second or third founding" chapter which are the more modern chapters that have derived from the original 20.
hope that helps.
