Default Which marine chapter should I collect?

Hi guys, FP here.

Here is My question to you: Which chapter should I collect?
A little info to help with your answer. I currently have a tau army which is painted white, so a break from white armies. I would like the army to be relativly easy to paint. I would like it to be more assault oriented to be a break from Tau.

I will plobably have this as a combat patrol so which army benifits more in small games. Also I would prefer it if the rules for the army where simpler.

Thanking you in advance FP.

I would say Blood Angels. Strait forward to paint (lots of red instead of lots of white!) and good for close combat.

DIY, then you can just use what ever ruleset fits your fancy at the moment for your marines.

I agree with Spiritbw here, a DIY chapter.

You can choose your own colour scheme, background and you can decide which rules you are going to use.
Be it from Codex Space Marines, Black Templars, Space Wolves or any other.

Easy to paint and assault-oriented you say?

Black templars. Or else it would be a DIY chapter.

I say go for the DIY chapter as you can really personalize your entire army.

Wll, with DIY there is no reason you can't go "Hmm, think today I'll use templar rules" and make a list accordingly, or then the next go "maybe I'll do Space Wolves this time" and make a list. Gives you a chance to do alot of diffrent mods if you want and no one can accuse you of not playing to the rules. They are your army after all. You can say how they fight so long as you tell the other guy the rule set your using.
