Are "Space Marines" grunts just general models that you then paint different colors depending on what "faction" you want them to be? If I go into say Ultra Marine category they just show the "named/boss" guys.
Trying to get a hang on how this all works.
Yeah so they're the poster boys of Warhammer, they're the most represented model wise. You can buy a set of marines and paint them in whatever colors you want. If you go to the GW site and hit 40k>Space Marines: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Warhammer-40-000
On the left there you can expand the Space Marines and see the bigger chapters. Ultramarines, Imperial Fists, Black Templars etc. All different chapters. But like that image above shows there are TONS of different chapters. GW just lists the main ones. They mostly paint them Blue for the Ultramarines but again paint them how you want.
Certain models are for certain factions, but the grunts are the same.
e.g. Roboute Guilliman is the Primarch leader of the Ultramarines, Tor Garadon is the head guy (I think?) for the Imperial Fists because their Primarch is dead.
But this Lieutenant or these intercessors can be anything
