** The CGI movie. It's either SoOkayItsAverage or downright horrible.



*** By the way, good luck figuring out how much of this was ExecutiveMeddling (Matt Ward was commissioned to write an Ultramarines-only codex before the publisher told him to also make it a general Space Marines book instead) and how much is genuine fanboyism (see his feud with [=McNeill=] below).



* {{Narm}}: The various Imperial Fists corpses arranged as increasingly elaborate wall-art. It doesn't help that their yellow armor really brings much needed color to an otherwise drab planet.

** GrahamMcNeill actually tried to tone down some of the more overt fanboying in ''Chapter's Due''. Matt Ward then tried to retcon some of it out.

** Thankfully the 6th Edition rulebook removed this. Chapters that don't follow the Codex Astartes are no longer considered [[StopHavingFunGuys "aberrant"]], other Chapters don't look up to Guilliman as their "spiritual liege", and pretty much every other MarySue trait has been done away with.

Added DiffLines:

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Fans were hoping that Ward wouldn't be writing Ultramarines in the next books well they're right, only problem is Robin Cruddace (writer of 6th Edition Codex) more or less ''kept'' everything Ward wrote, fan favorite Phil Kelly (who wrote the Damnos Warzone book) took the "Ultramrines are awesome" UpToEleven.
