I just got "Honour the Chapter" yesterday and there are a few chapters that I think are sort of divided and would lose some of their strengths no matter what specialty they choose.
For example, I am having a hard time understanding how to make a powerful Red Scorpion character. Their talents point them towards WS based characters. Is that just how it's going to be for them? I realize that each chapter tends to have a specialty or two that it has synergy with. Red Scorpions seems to point towards WS based characters, which I don't really get when it comes to how they work in 40k; they have always seemed more the gun type.
Also, how can Raptors (and also, Raven Guard) work out in the game when they have lots of concealment and scouting skills? Especially the Raptors who have sniping bonuses in combat? How do those look in games?
Anyways, I know probably only a few own Honour the Chapter right now. Thanks for the help!
