Default Which Cursed Founding Chapter do you think is the most powerful in-game?

I dug up CA 2004 and now cannot decide which cursed chapter I may wish to go for, I was wondering (like my Kroot Sig. Adaptations post) which special rules you guys think are most effective for in-game purposes.

I think that the Flame Falcons are cool, but their rules do not snag my interest enough

I like all of them really, In fluff terms I like the Lamenters and the Black Dragons especially, Lamenters seem so appealing to me anyway ;D

In terms of rules etc I like them all, If I were to pick one though to play i&#39;d probably pick Minotaurs, Black Dragons both have great effects but then they all have some kind of bonus but these two to me seem the best. At the end of the day overall I&#39;d pick Lamenters not for rules as such more for fluff/theme.

I voted LOD mainly because of my luck w/ dice. I am much more likely to pass a 6+ inv save than I am a 3+ Power Armour save - so I would pick them and hope my opponent has LOTS of plasma/missile pods/anti-MEQ madness so I could actually pass a few saves for once!!!

(This comes from my experience playing Deathwing - I am MUCH more likely to pass their 5+ inv saves than their 2+ standard saves, so I love it when my opponents hit them with melta guns or power weapons, but dread massed Lasguns or Bolters!!!)

My dice hate me. &gt;

Black Dragon&#39;s without question. A rending assault squad is vicious, but it gets WORSE. How about a unit where every rending attack gives you another attack? (which of course can also rend)

No, you&#39;re thinking of the Fire Hawks, although that is just a rumour apparently....... all though it was said in an old white dwarf that they were. :

Ahh.... GW..... what fluff can&#39;t you feth up? ;D

It has become a toss up between my two favourites, the Legion of the Damned (as their rules are good and fluff ok) and the Flame Falcons (as their rules are ok and fluff good)
