Hey /tg/,

Yesterday I saw a thread about who the worst space marine chapter was.
A lot of you said Space Wolves, and a lot of you defended Blood Angels.

Really now.
Space Wolves might be all wolfy wolf wolf of the wolf, but they're still god damn vikings, literally all there is to Blood Angels is HURR DURR VAMPYURZZZZZ which basically makes them the biggest faggots.

Prove me wrong.

I like both the Space Wolves and the Blood Angels. Wolfy wolfs and bloody bloods and overpowered codices or not, both of them have enough detail and depth and stories to make them interesting. The "worst" space marine chapter would still be the ultramarines, for the simple fact that they're boring. They're pitched as "standard" Space Marines, and because of this they lack character.

"Worst" could mean a number of things. It could mean worst at winning in-game (Black Templars), worst at being fair in-game (Space Wolves), worst at being interesting (Ultramarines), worst at winning in-universe (the Sons of Russ, who all mutated and ceased to exist shortly after being created as a chapter), worst at being helpful to their allies (Knights of Blood and Flesh Tearers, for their tendency to go crazy and eat them). I personally consider being interesting the most important attribute, so my opinion is that the Ultramarines are the worst chapter.

According to Battle of the Fang, if Space Wolves had fixed their gene-seed flaw that prevents new foundings from using it, they would have created an empire of wolves that crushes the Traitor Legions' hopes forever.

That's why Magnus' number one priority during Battle of the Fang was to destroy the Wolves' laboratories and kill the Wolf Priest who had cooked up the only solution for curing the flaws.

>> No.16387554

>> No.16387596

Every founding Legion is awesome. Period. Some more so than others but only because some are more fluffed out. These being the Ultramarines (Romans in space, with their own empire carved out within the Imperium? Awesome. Fuck Ward, still awesome), Space Wolves (Viking chapter with wolf motif? Awesome. Furry bait? Damn, but still awesome), Blood Angels (Loyal, "good" vampires? That's pretty sweet. I'll kill the first one that sparkles, though), and Dark Angels (A not sure if loyalist chapter? That's some interesting depth, if a bit edgy for edginess' sake). They all have their pluses and minuses, and are all awesome.

The ones less fluffed out, the ones without their own special codices (Face it, Space Marine codex is Ultramarines Codex with additional filler), are still awesome, they just have less depth and are generally one-trick ponies. Iron Hands are Bionic Commandos, Raven Guard are just plain commandos, Salamanders are pitch black bros, Imperial Fists have pain and siege fetishes, and White Scars are Mongorians. Hopefully, they'll get as fleshed out as their Codex brothers eventually.

Actually, it was intended to be nothing of the kind. The Space Wolf Empire idea was to surround the Eye of Terror completely, and wage eternal war.

It makes sense, to a degree. How much more fucked would Abaddon be if there were 20 Space Wolf Chapters waiting for him to try for Cadia again? And considering their Chapter doesn't adhere to Codex regulations on size, that'd be about 10 legions. Of Space Vikings. They'd still be that, just not Viking Werewolves anymore.

Actually, now that I think about it, the entire idea was just to remove the furry bait part.

And really, wouldn't that be easy? I always thought it was the Wulfen Chalice or whatever that added the wolfyness to the Marine, not the geneseed itself. Sip from the chalice, awaken a wolf spirit within you, then while you're fighting it they start operating on you.

So if you don't want the wulfen part anymore . . . then make people stop drinking from the damn cup.

>> No.16387755


Well, I re-read what I quoted, and I don't think I misinterpreted it.

It seemed like you scoffed at the idea of a Space Wolf empire on par with the Ultramar or the God-Emperor's original intention. Which is scoffable, I agree. But that's not what the Space Wolf empire was setting out to do/be.

>> No.16387758

i thought that happened because the wulfs only recruited on fenris

and fenrisians have that weird wulf bits in their DNA which reacted badly to the geneseed sometimes

>> No.16387764

I was saying the Ultramarines are good at making empires and supporting the people. That's what they do. That's their entire shtick. Spess Romans.

>> No.16387771

Drinking from the cup is the final trial for all Space Wolves; without it, the Canis Helix wouldn't activate and the geneseed would be useless.

Of course, the downside is that you're thrown out of the Fang to survive on your own, while your body is trying not to explode into a Wulfen.

You misunderstand. Yes, Blood Angels and Space Wolves have been around for a long time.

But the question asked was whether or not Dorn had a moustache, which that description failed to include, an indicator that he, in fact, does not, though awesome it would be.

Is everyone forgetting the Greek/Roman/Renaissance theme the Blood Angels have?

Or the fact that they are all from a massively radioactive hellhole that is basically a cross between mad max and the road only with giant deadly fauna and radioactive (not chaos) cannabalistic mutants?

Blood Angels aren't vampires really. The whole thing about the Blood Angels is that they start off as week frail, pathetic things due to their planet being a radioactive deadly hellhole, barely surviving at all. The ones that make it through the exceptionally difficult selection get transformed into paragons of beauty.

It's the reason they're so devoted to the arts, to being artisans and making music and such. Because now they can. It's actually one of the most compelling backstorys from any chapter.

'The feral tribes of Baal were miserable groups of individuals, forced to eke out an existence from the irradiated deserts of Baal Secundus. The levels of radiation experienced on the moon were capable of killing an unprotected man in mere moments. The Baalite tribes were forced to continually wear heavy, cumbersome radiation suits in their nomadic travels, and forced to continually defend themselves from cannibal-like mutants.'

'After the year has passed, the Aspirants are awoken and retrieved from their imprisonment. They bear little physical resemblance to the frail, radiation-warped adolescents that entered the sarcophagi a year before. Their restructured bodies take on a form reminiscent of their Primarch, keener and stronger than any mortal man. Even so, though they are now Blood Angels Neophytes, they have only completed the first stage of becoming a full Blood Angels Astartes. There is then the typical tradition of serving in the Chapter's 10th Company Scout force before joining one of the other companies as a fully fledged Brother Space Marine.'
