I would assume it's because there's so much diversity with Space Marines as it is. Still their Chapter Tactics are pretty good, adds flavour, useful rules if used right.

Still i'd lean toward other chapters myself, can't be too mainstream now can I^^?

as much as I'm not a fan of the ultramarines, their chapter tactics + Calgar are insane....they also have the best psyker in the whole dex as well.

I have only tried Ultramarines, really. I love Calgar. He might not be the best, expensive as hell, but the model is kickass. I am not using bikes or assault marines, so I could probably be better off using any other tactic, to be honest, but whatever. The doctrines I've used have saved me a couple of times

I voted Raven Guard.
I find the idea of scout moving a Land Raider very very amusing! Plus Starting your Rhinos at the mid field behind an Aegis is also a lot of fun. Followed by your super fast assault troops.

I have lately played White Scars a lot, but that was due to a campaign.

Great things about playing Exorcists; Pick whatever chapter tactic suits.

I have always used Ultramarines, Calgar, Tiggy and the chapter tactics make for an awesome army. So glad that this was done.

I am using the Salamander-doctrine, because I run an Salamander-Fluff-Army.

I personally like the Imperial Fists because of the Bolter Drill. Have not had a chance to use the Tank Hunter ability, but Im sure that will come in time. I have even thought about trying the Iron Hands also, but what makes me hesitant is the fact that really have no special characters to pull from like the other Chapters in the Codex.

I honestly think they don't need it, and if GW wants they can easily make a ridiculous character with some sort of data slate like they did with chaos daemons.Tank Hunting Devastators are awesome btw. It's what's keeping me more closer to codex marine IF over Sentinels of Terra.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

I haven't needed Tank Hunters per se in my experience, but I'm sure I'd love using it.  I play Dark Angels as a main force with VERY large numbers of DW and RW at my disposal, so I'm complementing that with several Codex Chapters and their Tactics. 

Right now my #1 most fun list allies with Raven Guard and Shrike.  I put Ravenwing with Scout, and a Darkshroud for Stealth, next to Raven Guard Assault Marines or Vanguard who also have Scout, Infiltrate and Stealth(via Shrike).  Fast as hell total non-stop action!  Fritz was talking about assault armies recently, and this one can do it.  Still very shooty though as well and scores insanely well with bike combat squads.  I still like the Ravenwing much better than anything the White Scars bring.

Next I use Ultramarines and then Iron Hands.  I'll be going straight to Black Templars after that.  I have a lot of extra Space Marine sprues from collecting.  There are really good combos with all those Chapters for me.  I do respect that Imp Fist mojo too.

I was using Iron Hands in 6th, but now with the changes in psychic aspects it's time to dust off Tigurius and Ultramarines rules. Just means I have to think a bit more about when to use which tactic and which powers. Rumour has it the average army can only get one or two powers off per turn on average.

Ultramarines here as well, but I'm not getting much use out of the Chapter Tactics in smaller point games as 3rd Company.  I imagine it would be devastating the more models I bring, but I can forget them and still win in 500 and 750pt games.

Black Templars.

Still my favorite chapter, even if they are no longer a solo codex.
Though my men may sleep, and my ships rest at anchor, my foes know full well that big guns never tire...

Look on my works ye mighty, and despair...
