Recently I've taken the plunge into starting a lost legions project. This has been something I've wanted to do for a long time and I've put together a 3250 list to give myself something to work towards. It's important to me that I keep the list as legal as possible (mournival units included) and don't go invent crazy extra rules.

I was looking to go blackshields, but they can't take RoWs and as a result, I couldn't keep the Legion theme alive as I couldn't replace bolters for fancy archeotech. The following is the logic that I've used to put the list together.

- the Legion favours archeotech. So it'll use lots of grav weapons and volkites and shun bolters. This is why I have spent 270 points on combi volkites for the veterans and given rhino's combi volkites!

- the Legion is themed towards Polynesian so they have mauls rather than axes on power weapons.

- for IA rules, they'll just use the stock IA of Stubborn.

- I've included a mournival unit (heavy destroyers) as they fit the theme of the Legion really well with their double volkites. This makes them feel like a legion special unit.

- I've gone with vets as they're the last remaining guys and to get choom en mass. It stands to reason that anyone left would be a Veteran.

I'm really hoping for feedback to make sure that it is OK (no surprise issues with rules) and that it'd be OK to play with and against. I'm not looking to min max as its a fluff army.
