There's a lot of directions you could go with space marines. Do you have a theme in mind, a narrative to go for, or did you want to try for what's most competitive in the meta? If it's the latter, rarely do Primaris marines actually make the cut except as token intercessors for holding down objectives and helping to build battalion detachments. You actually want to have hybrid lists of both Primaris and old marines since they can fill in gaps for each other. Primaris marines are slightly more tanky, but they lack the versatility in weapon loadouts of the old marines.

For 8th edition, unit effectiveness changes all the time, but having a solid understanding on how to build a general list no matter what army you're playing is what matters most. Most of the missions I play favor board control so I treat my lists like I do a soccer team where it has to have a rearguard, midfield, and vanguard. Other players just go all in getting a turn 1 charge and hope they can kill their opponent's so quickly that objectives won't matter.

How many points did you want to shoot for? Would you be open to using vehicles like the Predators? Also if I make you a list, you will be playing Ultramarines. :P

It's okay. I won't be biased to a particular Chapter, like these guys.

You wanted a few sorcerers, though, didn't you?

NO YOU MUST PAINT THEM ULTRAMARINES OR THEY WILL BE CURSED WITH TERRIBLE DICE ROLLS!

But other than that, you can paint them any color. Just let your opponent know ahead of time what your chapter tactics are.

In addition, to be clear, I do not see anything in that list that is Ultramarines specific (he did not declare any relics or warlord traits, nor take any special characters or Ultramarines specific characters or units).

As such, that list could be copy-pasted and used with any chapter tactic within Codex: Space Marines. I am not familiar enough with what Primaris units are available to Blood/Dark Angels to say whether you could use those codices without modifying the list, though.

Edit: I believe the standard of the emperor ascendant is a relic, but it is not Ultramarines specific. I do not believe Blood/Dark Angels have access to the same standard, but should have a relic standard of their own, if you prefer to keep that theme.

It's not. I was just kidding about making them ultramarines, but it's compatible with any chapter.

If you paint them with Blood Angels colors they go faster! Just kidding. That's Ork thing. But then again Blood Angels Primaris do benefit from The Red Thirst so there is that. In other hand Dark Angels Primaris benefit from Grim Resolve. If you don't want to limit yourself to chapters on basic Space Marines codex then those two are also viable options.

Blood Angels
Dark Angels

Somethings never change.

It was already broken when I got here.
