Tyrannic War Vets- first company vets who just happen to be good at fighting Nids through experience.

Honour Guard- command squad who just happen to be pretty kick-ass.

still follow the codex.

Actaully I'd say that there is no standard Marine chapter. The Ultramarines are an all-round chapter, the Imperial Fists are defenders, Blood Angels, Space Wolves etc are offensive units, Salamanders are "cleansers" so to speak (flamers etc make great cleaning weapons), Grey Knights are daemonhunters (obviously). There is no absolute standard Marine chapter IMO.

Yes the Ultramarines probably do follow the Codex Astartes more closely, except the whole 'Nid Hunters, Honour Guard and owning an entire stystem thing, but that doesn't automatically make them the standard Marine chapter, neither does them having the most Marines, that makes them the majority. I suppose it could be argued that the Imperial Fists are the standard Marine chapter because they have the purest geneseed with the exception of the custodes.

their betchers gland and sus-an don't work though. so it's not as pure as ultramarines seed.

As Captainwhizz said, Imperial Fist geneseed is flawed.

Custodes aren't Astartes, so they're out.
