Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

We are the Ultramarines, the Sons of Guilliman. Whilst we draw breath, we stand. Whilst we stand, we fight. Whilst we fight, we prevail. Nothing shall stay our wrath.

The Ultramarines series by Graham McNeill delineates the adventures of one member of the titular Ultramarines, Captain Uriel Ventris: Nightbringer; Warriors of Ultramar; and Dead Sky, Black Sun (in the omnibus Ultramarines); The Killing Ground, Courage And Honour, and The Chapter's Due.

The Ultramarines (fan nickname Ultrasmurfs) are a chapter of Space Marines in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. They're one of the more generic chapters within the Crapsack World that is the Warhammer 40,000 universe. In the game, they are considered the poster boy Space Marines, with about half the chapters deriving from the parent legion and Games Workshop using them for the majority of the artwork and material about Space Marines.

Their Primarch, Roboute Guilliman, wrote the Codex Astartes, his treatise on Space Marine tactics . The Ultramarines and most of the Ultramarine spin-off chapters rigidly adhere to it almost religiously, refusing to deviate from its teachings. Others, such as the Space Wolves, ignore it entirely - often a source of friction.

Should not be confused with the DC Comics superhero team of the same name. Also should not be confused with the pigment, although the Ultramarines do wear ultramarine-coloured armor. And Games Workshop has a paint color entitled Ultramarine Blue, which is (you guessed it) ultramarine, and intended to be used to paint Ultramarines.

Please resist the urge to put examples on this page or link to this page on tropes unless you are citing from 40K novels in which the Ultramarines feature. Examples which are specific to rulebooks or other in-universe fluff should go on either the 40K page or in the Space Marines section of the Warhammer 40000 page.
