"Psychic Awakening: Faith and Fury" story about the Alpha Legion (Apparently this info is only available in the Collector's Edition of the book).  The source - reddit via Natfka

MASSIVE SPOILERS!

I dislike the use of the word "fled"...

 

It was a tactical retreat with the original goal achieved!

There must have been a lot of IH Levi dreads, which prompted the manifestation of boss music. I don't blame the AL for "retreating". ;)

I dislike the whole idea of how the Iron Hands come across about the Alpha Legion.  That shouldn't have happened at all.

Well that is... about the level of writing I've come to expect from the Psychic Awakening books lately. On the bright side, that is literally the only Chaos "win" of all the events from our book, so that's nice? The other Legions just ended in stalemates/Imperium "wins" while at least our Legion forced the Exterminatus of a holy world, so that's cool. If only the story wasn't so... formulaic. Chaos shows up > wrecks the place > Imperium shows up > wrecks Chaos > things resolve. Too much Imperium plot armor going around... more than usual, it feels like. It'd be much nicer to have an actual story that was "Chaos showed up and just ruined us, guys, really... even the [insert Space Marine Chapter here] couldn't save us." Meh. Still neat, I guess... even if it locked behind the Collector's Edition 'paywall.'

 

But, I think that goes more into the general design philosophy of Psychic Awakening as a whole. So far, ever narrative has read as "we have this great idea, but the Marketing Department has capped us to a 20 page max for lore, so lets really cut down this neat story to the barest of bare bones." Meh.

Well, lets just look at it like this:

 

The imperials needed to be deus-ex-machina:ed out of the situation the AL put them in, it was that severe. Always something. :)

or they'd lose an agri-world to the Alpha Legion? :D

 

Btw, what is it with the Alpha Legion and agri-worlds? We also took an out agri-world in our old Index Astartes article.

It's hard to keep armies in the field if you can't feed them, and it's easier to provoke civilians to rebel if they can't feed themselves.

I would love to read a story where AL has a decisive force on force victory with no casualties because they are THAT smart and also they are Legionnaires.   This "spy masters" crap all the time is starting to get annoying.

I understand where you're coming from, but that's like saying "I want to read a story where the Night Lords don't torture and terrify people." Spy stuff is our thing.

Judging by the books, I thought it was incompetence tongue.png

Actually last year I sent a suggestion to GW when they were asking for the ideas that it would be really cool if designed one character for every Undivided Legion that reflects the lore and one character that would be unorthodox.  For instance - a special Havocs Champ for the Night Lords, a special Raptors Champ for Word Bearers, a special Possessed Champ for the Iron Warriors and a special Terminator Champ for the Alpha Legion.

They can't even give us a stereotype character for each Legion, why would they be competent to give us an oddball character?
