I was wondering if people could help me match the traitor legions with the loyalist legions in terms of abilities using rules, fluff, ect.
Black Legion and Ultramarines:
Both serve as the staple for each of their respective sides.
Blood Angels and World Eaters:
Both have crazed warriors, for different reasons of course.
Space Wolves and Death Guard:
Although it may seem like a strange match up, both seem similar rule wise.
Iron Warriors and Imperial Fists:
Both have long histories of siege warfare.
This is just a start of course, but if anyone can give me comparision between the 18 first founding chapters, it would be appreciated.

If someone helps you, or you just like what they say, rep them
Raven Guard and Alpha Legion:
They both use guerrilla tactics.
Iron Hands and Emperor's Children
Fluffwise, I think Fulgrim tried to cajole Ferrus into joining the forces of Horus during the Horus Heresy. Ferrus took this betrayal to the Emperor personally because they used to be good "friends."
Space Wolves and Thousand Sons
Fluffwise, events in the Horus Hersesy.

Is all good...
Forgive my bluntness, but this is a pretty pointless excercise..
The Emperor's Children, the Thousand Sons and the Night Lords don't match up to any of their loyalist counterparts. The latter two were pretty deviant to begin with, so their situation was pretty much unique.
Actually, Night Lords would be closest related to Raven Guard. Both had a love of stealth and sabotage, both made prodigious use of jump-packs, and both wore black. Now, you might say that it's Alpha Legion, but Alpharius preferred deception, inventive tactics and underhand tricks to the Splinter Cell-esque covert ops of the Raven Guard.
Nowdays yes, Emperor's Children don't match up to any of the loyalist counterpats, but before the Heresy and early days of the Heresy, Emperor's Children served as the staple for every Legion.Originally Posted by The_Giant_Mantis
Anyway, its safe to say that:
Dark Angels and Word Bearers
Both religious fanatic Legions.
