Top 10 Space Marines Characters from Warhammer 40kSome of the best characters of the iconic army,from the tabletop game. They can be good for the lore or on the tabletop. Also to keep things simple only Space marines on the tabletop,so space marines like Gabriel Angelos and Uriel Ventris are unfortunately out. (Although they might appear in a future list similar to this one)
The Top Ten
I've dug my grave in this place and I will either triumph or I will die. Stopped a Princeps from dying, kills an ork boss with one strike, threatens a warlord titen priceps in her own warlord titan (imperator class) - etc. etc.
Grimaldus is Reclusiarch of the Black Templars and depatably the most badass chaplin in the series as he has slayed thousands of xenos and heretics in his career and has survived some of the most brutal battles and is almost considered by some to be Immortal, but in actuality,he is just hard to kill.
Told somebody to stop dieing, and they stopped dieing
Pretty cool dude
Mephiston is the cheif librarian of the Blood Angels chapter and is one of the most powerful psykers in the Imperium. Mephiston is mostly well known for being the first Blood Angel to overcome the red thirst )which has plagued the chapter since it's creation) but not only that he came back stronger than ever and was reborn in the Lord of Death we known today.
Awesome. Totally not being prejudiced as a blood angels player.
This man is literally so angry, he is actually serene.
YES PEOPLE LOVE MEPHISTON I AM A BLOOD ANGEL PLAYER SO I AM HAPPY
Everyone either completely respects Logan Grimnar, or is afraid of him, Beheaded Grand Master Joros' for firing on his fleet, then beheaded Ghesmei Kysnaros. The whole inquisition is afraid of him
The current chapter master of the space wolves, Logan is considered in the fluff to be the greatest living warrior in the Imperium and was able to rival even his primarch.
Has literally fueled Chaos Demon Lords and slain them.
Dante is the current chapter master of the Blood Angels and the oldest living space marine (that isn't a dreadnought or a Chaos marine) still living in the Imperium, not many people know how old Dante actually is. In the lore it's said their was a prophecy that a golden warrior would protect the Emperor on his thrown, Dante believes he is the warrior and the determination he has will make sure the prophecy comes ture.
Longest serving Marine in the Imperium, aside from Bjorn
With age comes experience!
Vulkan He'stan is the forefather of the Salamanders chapter. Part of his duty is to seek the artifacts his primarch Vulkan left behind. He still seeks four of the nine objects that were left and is determined to find them. On the tabletop he is a good choice to lead Space Marine armies.
One of the noble Salamanders, how can you not choose him?
Bjorn is a dreadnought of the Space wolves and the single oldest loyalist Space marine still alive. He has served since before the Horus Heresy, and after the disappearance of Leman Russ he became the first Great wolf (A equivalent of a chapter master) until he was greatly injured in battle. Nowadays he is often awaken to tell the stories of the past, mostly about Leman Russ.
Oldest living Legionnaire, who fought by the side of Russ and helped shape the history of the Imperium
The grand master of librarians of the Dark Angels chapter, he holds the titles of holder of the keys and Keeper of the Book of salvation.
Cassius is the Master of Sancity and head Chaplin of the Ultramarines and currently serving in the Deathwatch. He made his name in the first Tyrannic war when he attempted to save the northern polar fortress after the 1st company were utterly annialted by the Tyranids. This didn't go well as he nearly crushed to death by a rampaging Carnifex, but he was rebuilt by Apothecaries and had grown a deep hatred for Tyranids. He had become so good a killing the xenos he was inducted to the Deathwatch for his skills. Cassius is also notable for being one of the few Ultramarine characters who isn't written as a Mary Sue.
Kor'Sarno is the captain of the White Scars 3rd company and master of the hunt. He is what you would get is Genghis Khan rode a motorcycle into battle.
He's the head of chaos space marines and can littérally in 8th ed
Tear appart 10 terminators in cataphracti armour in one swing
The current and possibly last chapter master of the infamous Flesh Tearers chapter. Since the Flesh Tearers numbers are dwindling since they get affected by the black rage more than other Blood Angels successors, Gabriel decided of instead of finding a cure for the flaw they will fight on with their savage brutality in hopes of the chapter being remembered not as monster but as the honorable heroes they once were. So far this tatic has been working.
Giant war machine, enough said
The Young Wolf King, greatest Space Wolf since Russ himself.
Got head cut off by Fulgrim - survived

Fell from Imperial Palace walls - survived
Best cynical prick in a Galaxy
