Umm...what exactly is the Legio? I keep seeing it referenced here, but for the life of me I cannot remember what it is.

Just this forum? I guess why Im confused is in the Liberium section, reading the chapter histories and such, it keeps referencing troops serving in the Legio and a Chapter's relationships with the Legio and such.

So what is the Legio per the fluff? Or is it not fluff, and is kind of just a roleplay thing here? Im so bloody confused.

The Legio is the Bolter & Chainsword's mascot Chapter. It's pure homegrown DIY. We tend to use it as a vehicle for our Arena of Death competitions.

Ok. Thank you, that makes sense. I was reading the histories of chapters and such in the Liberium and it kept talking about their relationship with the Legio, and I felt like a moron because I had no idea what that was.


All right. I understand now, thank you.

This thread has the best explanation ever. Nothing I didn't figure out in the last 6 months, but I sure would have liked to get it 6 months ago. Just letting you know you weren't the first to be confused BlakkMetal.

I find taking hostages always builds interest; often gets media coverage too...

Can I make a squad of these and treat them like Grey Hunters? I want a full pack to reminds me of my favourite place on the net.

If yes, all of their shoulder pads must be made of out the Deathwatch's?

Even with free upgrades and made a scoring unit, the Tactical Squad still is the "unwanted stepchild" of the Space Marine army.


if Ragnar gets a new model he will be made of Beard, Cheese and Frostblade.

Yes, you can make a full squad.

No, the Deathwatch shoulder pad isn't required. That's just something a lot of us did for the first contest.

as I am also a new B&C member, I had a question regarding the legio. I play chaos, but would love to put a member of the legio in my chosen. is there a precident to members of the legio falling to chaos, and continuing to operate like the legio does?

We've determined that a small number of Legio members fell to Chaos. We're still working on the full details of that little event and its participants. I don't see how making one of the members of your Chosen a former Legio member would hurt, though.
