Would have to be one of the ultramarine successor chapters like Sons or Orar or Praetors of Orpheus. I mean I doubt anyone would truly like to be part of one of the more aggressive and notable chapters because not only do you then come with some sort of illness or deficiency but you're also more likely to get owned in some plot device, especially if you're an Imperial Fist

I love their sense of brotherhood. It feels closer than the other legions and their wolf-like senses and overall character makes it understandable why they're one of GW's most popular legions.

If the Alpha Legion received the same treatment then I'd go with them in a heartbeat.

What about you? I'd be extremely surprised if anyone chose to become a World Eater.
Alpha Legion also my favorite, and with my vivid imagination filling in all of the blanks(basically Space Marine CIA ), I have no qualms with saying that yes, I would fucking love to be in the Alpha Legion.

I guess when you think about all there is to be angry about, the decision to become a World Eater becomes a bit more understandable.

I've considered all the others, but I actually would go World Eater just so I have an excuse to rip and tear. I've also considered the Carcharodons and the Minotaurs as well for the same reason, but oddly enough, not the Blood Angels or any of their successors.

If all else fails, Blood Ravens, for the chance to steal- be gifted copious amounts of loot.

Why, oh why do such silly threads get a life here in this section of the forums. That is my rant for the day, lets try and create some discussion via generic threads.

But, while I'm here, I'd say Custodes. The Legions are so boring(Traitor or Loyalist), and the Grey Knights so tedious that the Preatorians (with their bad ass armor and spears) just look God-Like among them.

Have you created so many good threads you can complain about the quality of threads in these parts? Last I checked (about 2 minutes ago), the only thread on the first page was one about more books on Macharius.

My rant for the day, cheers.
