Most likely no cyberwolves for me at this point Soembody else will be the group techmarine and I'll be rolling an ultrasmurf squad leader.
Oh well...next time.
Why ultrasmurf? I have to ask, because you call them ultrasmurfs, suggesting you like them about as much as I do, yet you choose to play one.
Not saying you shouldn't - I'm just asking.
Primary reason was mechanical. They make the best squad leaders, don't they?
I had this cool Space Wolf Iron Priest idea, but another player asked me if I was cool with him playing the techmarine of the group. These DW characters are an addition to an ongoing (mostly RT) game, and there is currently an Iron Hands Techmarine NPC aboard the group's ship that this guy likes and wants to take over as his PC, and the DM likes the idea too. So I played around in my head with several concepts (Space Wolves and other chapters) and none satisfied me in the 'I want to play this now!' way.
Since Squad Leader is the role most likely nobody in my group will be willing to fill, I've decided to do that. Since I had no clear character concept beyond Squad Leader and Ultrasmurfs are the best squad leaders I know (haven't found anything that comes close, if somebody did, please share ) I decided to go with an Ultrasmurf.
Meanwhile I've also managed to come up with a decent story that I think fits an Ultrasmurf (them being the most compassionate and close to the common citizen marine): This guy's been practically living in his own big soap bubble of joy until he got sent to Deathwatch. All the worlds he had seen were Ultramar and battlefieds. Battlefields are supposed to be bad, and Ultramar was good. Now that he's been sent in the Imperium at large and he sees how bad it really is for pretty much everyone that's not ruling class, he's both disappointed and furious. I plan to have him grow increasingly disgruntled with the direction the Imperium is going and, if the opportunity presents itself. Among of the craziest stuff that crossed my mind for this guy to do if he grows desperate enough is stealing Roboute Guilliman from Macragge and taking him to either Tau or Eldar to heal him (group has good relations to both).
And yes, I don't like Ultramarines that much. I find them somewhat cheesy and lacking in flavor. Most likely because they are the 'Space Marine blueprint' so to say. Every other chapter is Space Marine+something more, but not the Uttramarines, they're just Space Marines.
