Default Brain storming {a cursed chapter}

I'm trying to come up with an cool idea for a cused chapter or maybe even a legion (theres two missing legions) now I've thought of loads of ideas fluff wise but I can't seem to translate them into a playable army...

Well, be more specific about their combat role.
What would be their strengths/weaknesses? Ask yourself questions like:

Do they favor mobility? CC or ranged? Vehicles, infantry or a little of both?
How big are their armies? What are their strategies and formations?
They could have bonuses and penalties based off of enviornments and terrain and certainly off of certain enemies. Creating chapters is a lot of work fluff-wise AND play-wise.

There's also always the prospect of paint schemes and decoration which can easily be tied into a history and background. If they're cursed they might be sacreligous or unlucky or maybe secretive as well. It's all up to you when it comes to making new legions.

Better yet, you could make the curse upon your legion a benefit (related to the fluff of course).

Chapter approved 2004 has the sons of anteus and the black dragons special rules you could just use one of them to represent your chapter and it would give you some cool and legal special rules to work with.
