Don't know what those will be but I would love a tau version of raven guard / alpha Legion
Or the salamander chapter tactics might make crisis suits and broadsides more appealing but that's just speculation.
I think Chapter Tactics (and hopefully, by extension Sept rules) are pretty nuanced. It's not like "Imperial Fists get good infantry" or "White Scars get good bikes" or something like that. In older editions, Marks of Chaos were like that- Nurgle got +1T, Khorne got +1A, etc. But now, the broad abilities granted by these sub-faction perks are less about stats, and more about, well, perks! The Raven Guard Chapter Tactic + Chapter Strategem allow for gunline-style gameplay, or assault forces that can safely close distance. Hopefully we see Sept abilities that are passive abilities/perks with lots of utility.
