Simple enough question: what is your favorite loyalist Chapter and your favorite Chaos Legion.

As much as I love'em all, I think my favorite Chapter (right now at least) would be Raven Guard. Chaos is easy as my first love for them has always been The Thousand Sons.

Obviously chaos is the Iron Warriors, first love, first army, first models painted up. Grabbed hold and never let go Twisted Evil
As for loyalists? Not as easy a choice, but I'd probably go with Salamanders. Like the colour, like the fluff.

yah, mostly what you see on my tables;

Nurgle/ plague marines for chaos, and Dark Angels/Crimson Fists for loyalists. Alot of fatalistic themes here.

Crimson Fists? Really? I had no idea. The Dark Angels was obvious, yeah, but I had no idea you liked the Fists.

I just like dark blue. The red hands of the warriors also helps the 'heraldry' since every model embodies the chapter name, as well as it physically accents and emphasizes their poses/motions.

As a second layer on this history, when I first wrote a wishlist Army out of the 'new' Space Marines codex, it was commented on as being a likely candidate for that chapter, since they are rebuilding.

It was essentially a Scout army, with as little Power Armour as a SM book could make. I think the only PA in the list is Chaplain, Techmarine, Techmarine. the Scout Bikes still look cool, just not at $20 each.

I'll bring a termi I painted up when we got Space Hulk. since it was two squads, and 40K (at the time) wasn't really in the scope of 20+ terminators on one side... I painted them up just for the SH game...

Yeah, its a toss up between Salamanders and Crimson Fists for me. I like the fluff and colour scheme behind the Crimson Fists, the fact they stand out so well with the hand one red hand. I find they and the Salamanders have similar fluff as well for the way they treat the "regular" people like guardsmen, as in more than just cannon fodder.

I think the pull towards Salamanders is a little stronger on the weapon theme for the army, cause hey, who doesn't love a wall of fiery death Very Happy

Blacklegoin, then World Eaters, then Iron Warroirs.

Not sure about marines, I like Ultramarines, I also like Blood angles, not sure that they are my favourite though, I think Imperial fists are pretty cool too.
