I'm looking at maybe eventually possibly getting an Alpha Legion army consisting entirely of Horus Heresy models - specifically, one each of the FW Praetor and Terminator Praetor (Chaos Lord with power sword and bolt pistol and Terminator Lord with power sword and "Volkite Charger"), a squad of Lernaean Terminators (Chaos Terminators with Power Axes and "Volkite Chargers") and a box of Mk IV Marines, a box of Volkite Chargers, and some AL pauldrons and AL heads for them, as two squads of Chosen (with "Volkite Chargers"). Everyone but the FW Praetor will have a Volkite Charger, so it becomes a matter of what rifle-sized gun makes sense for an entire army of Volkite Chargers in 40k. There's the obvious option of running them in narrative games with the point value and profile for a Volkite Charger off of the Tartaros Terminator datasheet, but I'm wondering what to do in a matched play game. Maybe Combi-Plasma, since everyone can take it? Combi-weapons are the obvious choice, just because they're available to Chosen, Terminators and Termilords alike. Thoughts?
EDIT: Note, I'm entirely willing to grab Volkite Calivers instead of Tactical Squad Chargers and maaaaaaybe the Culverins for heavy weapons. I'm open to possibilities, I just want my expensive, tiny AL army to have as much volkite as possible, just for the cool factor.
Edit 2: Remember, I'm looking for a rifle thing that both Terminators and Chosen can take, and a heavy weapon for Culverins. Seems everyone agrees with my thoughts on the Reaper Chaincannon for the Culverins, which is nice.
