It's difficult, I love the Imperial Fists but I find yellow a pain in a butt to be happy with when it comes to painting. I'm growing to like the Raven Guard more and more, if only there were more appearances of them pre-istvaan massacre.
I've always stayed away from the more exposed legions like Space Wolves, Blood Angels and Dark Angels preferring the more understated ones in the hope they will shine in the HH series, so far Raven Guard and Imperial Fists are where as IHs have gone back in my estimations.
On the traitor front, I like the look and idea of the Death Guard, but apart from Garro nothing else written about them has made them grow in my opinions. I've enjoyed the Alpha Legion more than I would of thought, however I still have compunctions when it comes to the way they fight, I prefer the idea of units of marines fighting on the front line or in an ambush as opposed to espionage. Emperor's Children is no longer my on counter as Legion I could like after Angel Exterminatus. Word Bearers...well they still appear like adolescent teenager whose listened to a stranger and become addicted to drugs rather than listening to it's parents warning.
I don't think I could play a legion who turned traitor, unless there was a very good reason but none of them so far really have offered an acceptable reason for me.
