Default Librarian or Chaplain?

Looking at both these mods i find that both are extremely useful in squads (allowing them to re-roll hits) but what i want to know is: which would you chose as an HQ choice and which do you think is more useful on the battlefield?

Why is that? is it to do with points cost or would the librarian be more of a target? i say this becasue generally i use the librarian with veil of time and once my opponent starts seeing re-rolls to hit and wound as well as leadership tests being re-rolled, they tend to try and instantly kill him

I like Chaplains generally because they are cooler and make my units fearless.

I choose Chaplains because I play blood angels so they get super powered rhinos or jump packs, and death company.

I tend to choose betweent he two depending on what i am going to need them for. Both have good strong points but thier areas of effect are a bit diffrent. librarians I find are best if you want them going after big, multi wound characters and creatures or are planning on sitting back and shooting for the most part. Chaplains are very strong assault leaders and are best when dealing with the horde of rank and file some will throw at you.

I tend to avoid Librarians more (damned Force Weapons). Although I prefer the idea of Chaplains.

I have found that i am using both in allot of the games i play. The last game i played had 1 of each with a command squad and they both did quite well for me. And i also have a librarian in my deathwatch kill team.
