With current 40k Meta moving toward shooting, and being able to use "Bolter Drill" all the time during a game. Vs the old way of having bolter drill by taking Lysander, plus siege master and Tank hunters. The choice is simple for me, Imperial Fists.

Red Scorpions. All tac squads can get free FnP and by using Vet Sgt Haas I get a squad with relentless grav gun and plasma cannon out of a rhino hatch. Also Sevrin Loth is a good warlord.

My most regular opponent is an ig player who likes to use 3 to 4 leman Russ battle tanks behind an ageis defence line so I find tank hunters on the devs and centurions very handy I Allie tigarius a lot as well to get divination to with tank hunters I get double re rolls against armour

I have been playing Ultras for a long time. When the Chapter Tactics were in the new Dex, I was very happy with my chosen chapter.  Using them really makes a difference and has pulled some victories out of left field.  All in all, the chapter tactics can fit any play style you choose.  Awesome addition to the book!!!!

Playing the Salamanders since early 5th, I still play them, while it is far from the best chapter tactic, I love the  feel of it, and with a little effort you can make the benefits worth it, obviously in this case, melta, flamers and special CCW everywhere, I have even been saved by the re roll failed saves against flamers once!

My group put together a Badab War campaign several years ago, somehow I found my way to Carcharadon's.  Even though all of their special abilities won't kick in until turn 3 or later, it's an extremely fluffy army that allows you to use just about anything, as they use "Predation" to replenish supplies - any Mark of armor and vehicles of any age fit in.  Also, Forgeword sells a very nice decal sheet for them!

Tyberos the Red Wake is an animal in Close Combat - plus he makes Assault Terminators scoring troops!  Deliver 10 Terminators directly into close combat via Caestus Assault Ram or Spartan Assault Tank for turn 3 Carnage!  Add a second CC weapon to any Troop unit for 1 point per model, turning Tac marines into Assault Marines.

Going traditional 'dex i'm going for Iron Hands too, love the Mechanicus Influence and all the Vehicles. Outside that I like Red Hunters, they have super quirky rules and can be Battle Brothers for my Grey Knights, gotta love it!

BLOOD ANGELS!

ok, I know they don't have "Chapter Tactics" per say, but the red thirst is pretty close, I'm sure it will be changed to something similar in their new codex (for better or worse).

For Sanguinius!

I normally play Salamanders tactics. Re-rolling wounds for flamer weapons on a command squad full of combi weapons + Vulcan and his melta re-rolls = Tank busting, infantry killing mayhem!

I also like to play Raven Guard tactics on occasion on a fully mobile jump pack and transport list against tau. That normally works fairly well ;)
