    Corresponding CSM-SM Legions/Founding Chapters

    What are the antagonistic chapters for Chaos Legions
    My ideas:

    Iron Warriors - Imperial Fists
    Spearhead vs. bodyguards, both well-versed in siege warfare.
    World Eaters - Blood Angels
    Both are bloody close-combat specialists.
    Black Legion - Ultramarines
    Both can be described by one word: generic.
    Thousand Sons - Space Wolves
    Scholars vs. barbarians.
    Night Lords - Raven Guard
    Vile flying beast vs. noble flying beast. Both are hit-and-run forces.
    Word Bearers - Dark Angels
    Most devout, but corrupted vs. suspicious, but loyal.
    Death Suard - Salamanders
    Both stalwart warriors, entropic vs. creative.
    Alpha Legion - White Scars
    Both mobile and unpredictable.
    Emperor's Children - Iron Hands
    Please your flesh - despise your flesh.

    I've heard somewhere that there are Second or later Founding Chapters that are direct antagonists of specific Chaos Legions, like Iron Warriors and Imperial Fists are.
    Can someone point me to their fluff or at least names?

    These work conceptwise, but they don't all work "historically". For example, the Ultramarines have a reason to despise the Emperor's Children more than the Black Legion, because Fulgrim killed Guillman. And the same with the Alpha Legion, because Guillman killed Alpharius. There aren't specific legion match-ups to be made.

    Is this based on Designated fluff, or your fluff?

    It appears to be based on the actual game mechanics.

    quite accurate too, but it is more which races are opposite of eachother since it is not those have vows to specificly kill the other one.

    i thing GW designed most chapters to resemble each other for balance issues. and not because they had to fluffwise.
    this argument makes this post kinda pointless. lets talk about similarities in Starcraft and 40k instead. we might get a bit further with that.
    I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.

    Well...I always thought Terrans were ripoffs of Space Marines. And those Zerg look kinda like Hormagaunts.

    Okay, seriously now. That's pretty accurate, in terms of comparing the legion's philosophy. In terms of historical rivalries it varys a lot more. But that's cool.

    I would argue about Salamanders and Death Guard - they never struck me as similar, in tactics or philosophy - but if there was nothing else to match up then I guess it's cool.
