Raptors, particularly if you have the Imperial Armour books in which they feature.

Pat that askala, O-H-I hate this stupid state

It depends the salamanders will pop more with a brighter green but you could make the raptors look kinda grungy with bug splatter since they fly around the battlefield. So its your preference.

Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel, its just a freight train coming your way!

Raptors. SMs with subdued color schemes are the hawt. Was it the Raptors chapter that wore the cool rebreathers? Might be an avenue for some great conversions.

Salamanders, they have a decent paint scheme, and Vulkan He'stan is just bad@ss

If you are looking for a chapter that blends to the terrain go Raptor, if you want a chapter that stands out go Salamander.

My choice is the Raptors.

That is fluff heresy on so many levels you could build an office building with the levels.

On that note, I vote for Raptors too.

Raptors, they are like the space marine version of catachans man.

If you're really tempted to use vulkan though, make your own version-- that particular company could be a fan of the "slash and burn" technique of jungle fighting.
