Hi all

I’m new to Chaos. Am slowly building up an Alpha Legion warband. My question is, does the Daemonkin stuff from shadowspear fit into Alpha from a fluff perspective? Part of me says yes, Alpha infiltrate everything, prt of me says no but I don’t know why. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Yes, use what you want. The Alpha Legion will use every available tool to win. Everything is a weapon in the long war, and only victory counts.

No, sadly, those are legion codex specific. You could always bring them as allies if you want to use their rules.

That's unfortunate, no 40k coils it is.

It would be pretty cool if the coil rule came over from 30k. There'd have to be some parameters but it would be pretty neat.

 

Again tough, don't let that stop you from using the minis or rules. You can always use the minis if you like them and if you want to use the unit itself there are ways to add them to an army.

I had a full squad plus an extra Champ and special weapon carrier, but I ebayed them. They're awesome sculpts, yes...but they're a pain in the butt to actually play with because they're so tall and top heavy.

 32mm bases has helped a lot! Maybe on those old skool 90s hill!

A request if anyone could kindly oblige:

I am wondering if anyone knows or has a pic of the FW praetors for Alpha Legion compared to primaris marines. I would love to get those guys but wondering if they are passable next to primaris turned true-scalish AL astartes.

With my limited experience some of FW sculpts are bigger than GW plastic marines and sometimes they’re smaller so I’d love to know before I bite the bullet on a purchase.

No, they're in a different codex and have the THOUSAND SONS/DEATH GUARD and not the <LEGION> keywords.

As noted, you can always bring them in a separate detachment, or the same detachment if you sacrifice your legion trait.

So an Alpha Legion Master of Possession can: Use the forward operatives strategem to get 9" closer, move and advance to get 6+d6" closer, summon a squad of daemons?

Heh, yeah. You'd move an average of 17"-18" turn 1 and then can summon a bloodletter bomb or whatever right in front of the enemy for an easy turn 1 charge. Just make sure you actually go first or say goodbye to the MoP.

Can't wait to see the nerf for that new psychic power. :teehee:

Funny I always thought that is was control.

Like playing chess with the board already setup to win.

With the cloak and dagger just being just one of their method of control.

Why would you want other legion termi's when you have the amazing Laemeans with CHOOM guns you can counts as combi plasma in 40K? AL has like the best looking termi praetor as well so far- again with a CHOOM gun to use as a 40k termi lord.

He's talking about the summon psychic power which you explicitly can do after moving according to the FAQ. ;)

In case somebody missed the full updates from the Warhammer Fest, on the day 1 there was introduced a new band for AOS "Warcry" subsystem called "the Splintered Fang".  Their visual aesthetics are akin to Alpha Legion (in my opinion).  I plan to use their decorative elements for my army.
