hey guys, I'e just started SM (got 2 combat squad boxes so far, painted 6 of them different colour schemes) and I'm having trouble choosing a chapter and colour scheme. I've got two main schemes I like: Iron Lords (black with red upper and lower legs) and Hawk Lords/Soul Drinkers (purple and gold trim and eyes). I want an overall darkly-coloured schemes, which both of these tick, although iron lords more so, but I also love the imperial purple and arrogance/majesty of the gold trim on the "soul drinkers". One problem is if I went for the purple/gold scheme, there are already 2 chapters using that and I don't like either of them. I don't want to be a soul drinker cos there's apparently only 300 left and their leader is a mutant (although I do like their trapped between chaos and imperium conflict) and I dont like hawk lords cos drop pods are awesome! Also, although my painted purple/gold tactical marine looks great, I'm worried big purple vehicles might look a bit garish. Any tips/thoughts on that? I am tempted towards soul drinkers, but I'd have to do them as a pre-excommunication army, but I don't really want to get all out of sync with the official fluff like that.
A third option is my own purple/gold chapter, eyes of the emperor or sons of octavian. Since I love Roman history especially Augustus Octavian, the purple (colour of imperial praetorians) and gold fits nicely with that. An eye as a symbol might be quite nice too. I was thinking that since Octavian's adopted father Julius Caesar was betrayed, primarch Octavian might have seen that as a child and that, together with Horus' betrayl, might have given him and his progeny the ability to physcically sense approaching betrayls, meaning the chapter is good at arriving just before a planet rebels, but also meaning those outside the chapter are suspicious of them because of this uncanny/secret ability. Octavian's would be the eleventh missing legion, far from Terra when Horus was about to attack, and his personal ship and the 1st company lost in the warp by daemons on Horus' hearing that Octavian had sensed his betrayl and would otherwise had arrived at Terra on time to defend it against Horus. Any thoughts?
Apologies for length!

the soul drinkers are currently down to 100 men after fighting with necrons. and to boot their chapter master was defeated in an honour duel to lysander and few remaining surrendered to the fists. soul drinkers are cool but theyre totally boned
