Looking at building my own chapter revolving around the old colour sceem of the white space marine on the old 40k boxed set,possibly the old space crusade box Unsure)-(Primarily white/silver and gold trim) useing the lion as the main motief or chapter symbol for "The White Lions?" I love the new Pre Heresy loyalist version of Lugft Huron,well most of it.I might remove the heavy flamer and add a drum-fed assault cannon or something else.
the white lions chariot from the high elf range could be very easily used to ornament vehicals, or add flavour to various ideas in mind like copying the bannerpoll claws.
(forge world are bound to make the Pauldrons next)
Questions:
-chapter name suggestions
-What founding chapter would you recomend that would best convey purity and regalness.
-what chapters fighting style would best suit: Close quarters/ballanced/shooty
-what weapons then

:Edit: I guess I've allready got a fairly good idea of what I want to do.
-Lions have a short distance mauling type of Attack/Hunting style,so im starting to think spacewolves,with a GK HQ (retinue) thrown in for an Honour guard or flavorsome hq choice.

also asthetic personel preferences;assault cannons,terminator armour
im thinking of converting an HQ landraider to have puniser cannon sponsons what version do you think best suits(probably crusader)
(Any Elite type units)

AND most importantly have a blab

You ask what would best suit, close combat/shooty etc. I think, if you want us to be able to help more, that you have to decide this for yourself. The Assault Cannons and Land Raider aren't really enough; you want to use the Huron model, but will you use Huron's rules or just use him as a generic character from one of the SM Codicies? That desicion will also help to shape what the Chapter's 'speciality' is. Then of course there is the desicion about wether they are Codex/non-Codex or somewhere in between. These are the desicions that put your stamp firmly upon the idea- I feel that us making such important, defining desicions for you would take away from your 'ownership' of the idea.
If you fill in some of the blanks I've mentioned, then it should be a lot easier to help!
