Dear fellow Brethren.

I started reading the new horus Heresy Book "Legion" and got one thing in mind.

How to play Alpha Legion without playing Chaos?

As i was once talked over to start Chaos by the Red Shirts in my nearest GW Shop, i realized i really hate playing Chaos and am more the "Good" Player by heart. This said it stays true even if i can not hide my interest into the Alpha Legion. Since starting this Hobby 1999 i looked at C:CSM with more interest in these blue/green guys then any other heretics.
And as i once played Chaos for a short duration i wanted to play Alpha too.

I thought about it and looked over the forums and saw these "Pre-Heresy" threats all over....but i do not really understand how to do it!
Though it is perfectly clear to me what "pre-heresy" means fluff wise, i do not get the point in fielding a pre-Heresy army.

Which Codex to use?

How to get time lines equal if playing against thousand sons chaos marines?
Or Second founding Space Marines!

Sound silly to me and i am not able to get this clear on my own.

So, can anybody give me a glance on how to explain Pre-Heresy to my counterpart on the table top?
And how to explain it even before my very self?


This forum seems to be the right place for these questions, as you are the more fanciful forum on board.
If not, well, feel free to move it.

I thank everybody for their time spent to read this and if any answers yould be found i would be very pleased to hear.

Scura.

Thank you for the links.

Nice to see people just as ...ยง$%" <_< over it as I am! :confused:

These Novels really make one paint some stuff. Even though it is not from C:SM or C:CSM...haha!

My Alpha Legionary just grows on me...the stripe on his helmet and hands works out finally.
Took me 1 hour to find a good looking purple!
