    First of, welcome to LO.

    Secondly, please read and follow the forums rules, as this post should be in the Space Marine part, not in SM army lists, as this is for your overall lists to show people.

    Thirdly, I'm a fan of Salamanders rather than BT. I prefer there colours as well as the fluff that goes with them.

    Thanks,
    Toastee

    This is the space marine part.

    Personally I think Blood Angels are the best but since your friend collects them...

    I don't know the rules for the black templars but they look cool to me.

    Yes it is now because Toastee moved it...

    As for the question in hand, it is never a good idea to ask other people to choose for you... Go with whatever you think is coolest...

    you might read the Codex: Space Marines and look for each army some of the fluff on the internet. And if there is nothing that is really your thing, just go with a army with traits
    hope that helps.

    I would agree that the first step is to buy the codex: Space Marines. That will give you a background on SM and give you an idea of what you might want to do. Maybe you would make your own chapter, like I did.

    That being said, I love the BT fluff. Very cool stuff, and easy for a beginner to paint (black, white, and (now) a little red)

    Edit: And that, my friends, is 400 posts

    Choosing between BT and Sal's is choosing between two totally diffrent armies. Get your hands on a marine codex, and perhaps borrow a BT codex when it arrives. Give both of them a try, and see which you like best...

    I have been looking at Salamanders. It seems to me like they are a shooting army. They all have inititive 3 instead of the usual 4 but their devastater squads can get the thing so they can shoot at an enemy squad 4D6" away. Since you already have a shooty army with lots of tanks I would go for the templars.
