Default Picking my next chapter (Your opinion please)

I'm torn between a few ideas for the next Space Marine chapter I want to play. I know I want to use one of the FW chapters and I'm torn between Astral Claws (possibly Tyrant's Legion), Minotaurs, and Raptors. What do you guys think? Anyone know if one fairs better on the table than another?

All three have some great color schemes and would play a lot differently than my Space Wolves (my main army). Let me know what you guys think! Thanks all!!

Minotaurs could be fun and have some neat looking characters, Tyrant's Legion is a good way to mix stuff in some squishier stuff, and the pass ATSKNF out to large blobs, and I know nothing about Raptors.

Well Astral Claws and Mino's are pretty nicely supported by FW in the special character and shoulder pads department. Raptors have terminator shoulder pads and a couple of sets of vehicle doors but that's it. I'm biased as I have a force of both Astral Claws and a sizeable one of Minotaurs. Honestly I would go with any of them, painting wise Raptors would probably be easiest. Astral Claws have the advantage of being very easy to ally to Guard with the Tyrant's Legion and Minotaurs... well they are just pure badass.

In terms of the Astral Claws is better to go with the Tyrants Legion or the marine codex?

Marines codex, the Tyrant's Legion list is pretty terrible.

As Midnight says, use the Marine codex and ally in IG (or the other way round), heaps of options between them.
