Why is command squad an option. They can onlybe taken as an addition to one of the three leader units. Also you could have put techpriest in there as someone may have taken the Scions of Mars trait.

Overall though, I would say a captain. Cheap, not game winning but just perfect for a support role.

I like a chaplain, since he can survive very well and is a murderer in close combat. I am having mine attached to a 10-man assault squad for total slaughter of any enemies they encounter.

IMHO, Chaplains- with their special rules and free power weapon- are the best Marine ICs. But it's pretty close.

I'd always run a character either with a jump pack or a command squad.

Chapter Master easy, Rites of Battle is an awesome rule, plus he can survive really well and is not nice in cc.

Captain/Force Commander, depending on which Company I field.

Personally I'd field a Captain, bacause I feel like I'd have to always field the same model if I wanted to use a Chapter Master. A captain can be represented by many different models because you can just consider each model the Captain of a different company...plus I don't like the name or personality of the Imperial Fists chapter master.

I don't like Chaplains because I think they look wierd and creepy; not at all fitting with a practical military task force.

I don't like Librarians either...because they're witches. Mutants! Burn the heretics! Cleanse them with fire! Damned freaks...warfare's all about metal meeting flesh. Rugged, brutal, savage and simple.

I like the Librarian, as it makes me nostalgic. Its like a Grey Knights Grand Master Light.

Sorry about writing down Command squad.
Im pretty much a noobie. I only play against my friends small Tau force (all he has) but I have 1500pts of space marines I hope to put to good use.
