which should I get to lead my Terminator squad
(I'm leaning towards chaplin)
Well, to make a good judgment call for you, we'd need to know what else you have. Knowing little to nothing, I say Librarian just because of the flexibility you can get with him compared to the Chaplain.
"Darnath Lysander is the Samuel L. Jackson of the 40k universe."
It's an assault terminator squad that is going to be doing a lot of assaulting which is why I am leaning towards a termie chap (Also he looks like a beast) but I really do like librarians and I can't decide
Well apart from the fact that the terminator chaplain is positively GORGEOUS, with an Assault Termie squad the Chaplain complements their skills better than a librarian would. A Chaplain will give them that bit of extra hitting power that a Librarian wouldn't, and although he doesn't have psychic powers his other abilities make up for that easily. Termie Chaplain with the Assault Termies, if you're going to have a terminator Librarian put him elsewhere.
Depends on the powers you give the Librarian really, and who you are fighting. Most of the powers can augment the Assault Terminators nicely, of particular note are:
The Chaplain can do none of those things.
- Vortex of Doom - Move and fire in terminator armour, nice for popping a vehicle full of people you want to assault
- Might of Ages - S6 + 2DP armour penetrating means he can assist with assaulting vehicles
- Quickening - it makes you initiative 10, and I think that speaks for itself
- Null Zone - wave goodbye to pesky invulnerable saves (not completely, but enough)
- Gate of Infinity - good at moving them out of danger or towards the next threat when you've killed everything nearby
If they are in a LR I would say Chappie... especially if they are TH/SS termies

I use my Chaplain with my TH/SS Terminators. The re-roll on the charge is just too good to ignore. The Librarian, in my opinion, is very nice, but I like to use him attached to Sternguard or Assault cannon Terminators with the Gate of Infinity power.

Id say champlain because you get to re roll missed hits on your first assualt and he has an invunreble save which can kim him in the game a bit longer a libraiun doesnt
As everyone else has said, if your Assault Termies have TH/ SS load-outs I'd take the Terminator Chaplain because rerolling Thunder Hammer hits is sweet as a nut. Then again the Termie Librarian gives you access to Vortex, Smite, The Avenger, and, best of all, Null Zone, all of which go nicely with Assault Termies.
There is, of course, nothing stopping you taking both
