    Keep in mind, that with the new Codex due out in october the choices get changed around a bit. Commanders get a better CC stat-line than chaplains. Both of the choices you were considering work well but for different play styles. It depends what you want to do with your army.

    As Altimit said, with the new codex comming out, dont make any commitments just yet, but if you really want to (or have the money to burn if the codex changes your army list!) then there are a few other posts out there i want to draw your attention to (which can be found in the 'Space Marines Index 2008' at the top of the forum!)

    Check out the new codex. Are there any hobby stores near you? Every decent store should have an advanced copy you can look at. The special characters are now awesome!

    Chaplains are still great. I think Librarians got better because they have cooler powers. Captains are great too, but I would choose a special character and run it. You can choose any special character for your army now, too. For example, you could play Crimson fists but put Marneus Calgar in it (as a crimson fist. maybe call him Marneus Cantor or something!) Plus you could put in Lysander in the same army. You paint him up like your army and maybe change his name or maybe keep it. Either way make sure your opponent know who he counts as.

    There are so many great HQ choices, you almost can't go wrong, no matter which you choose!

    I think it also depends on the nature of your army. Are you going to be heavy into cc or stand back and whittle away your enemies? Depending on which angle you are going for it might mean the difference between choosing a libby, chappy or standard captain.

    Chaplain should be your first choice, those rerolls to hit will definitely help for a CC-based army.
