Hi guys I am starting an Alpha Legion army and was wondering what people thoughts are on using the primaris range for some of my units. What would your reaction be if you saw you opponent doing this? would you have an issue with it?


Sometimes by losing a battle you find a way to win the war

Nope. They're just Marines at the end of the day; no reason one can't stand in for another.

 

Treat yourself to a look at Migsula's Primaris Alpha Legion for inspiration.

Out of the 9 traitor Legions Alpha would look the best as Primaris I think. Why do you want to use them though? I think the new chaos marines from the set and the dark spear ones look pretty dang good. Do you just have extra?

It's pretty common for folks to use Primaris for Alphas, not just the models but the actual rules (Ravens or Ultras, usually). While I disagree with the practice, I don't discourage it since they're your models to do with as you wish.

Much the same as if you put them in 30k; I obviously wouldn't refuse the game, but it would be immersion breaking.

Fluff wise it does not make sense for chaos space marines to have primaris units. The primaris project was a extensive complex project the imperium came up with, you would have to stretch your home-made narrative fluff alot to fit in primaris in chaos space marines. If you really want to play primaris units, why not play imperium space marines?
