Was thinking about this army and after reading the thread about can CSM be redeemed(Witch Hunter Hat on, through Pain and Fire...) I remembered the story in Index Astartes about Captain Garro of the Death Guard who led 70 loyal Marines away from Istvaan to warn the Emperor of Horus' treachery. I've thought about an army, that "strikes from the shadows"(quote from side bar story WD 265 I think...) still in the pre heresy colours of theor Legion. I'm thinking about doing an Army using Captain Garro(sounds familiar...), and Marines made from the 13th Company Boxed Sets(mix of loyal and renegade armour) probably using the colours of the death guard(Garro's Legion, the Emperor's Children, And possibly some post Heresy Chapters) This sound like a good Idea? Think I could write some good fluff(given time and energy) about these Marines damned froever by the sins of their Legions, trapped serving in secret an Imperuim that hates them, and Their own Legions who despise them for holding to ideals that they abandoned long ago...
Well, the Legion of the Damned also strikes from the shadows...perhaps a good idea to use them if you want to save yourself a lot of work writing fluff etc.??
Think for yourself. Question authority.
HA HA. Ive already done exactely that. My Soul Reavers space marines are a battlegroup of the Death Guard who did not follow mortarion and stayed loyal to the emperor. But they were at first tricked into believing the loyal marines were the one who had turned traitor so they assaulted loads of loyal planets. When they got to terra they realised and so were thrown into self imposed exile. They then stripped all their armour of their former heraldry and re-christend themselves the Soul Reavers.
There is quite a bit of fluff on them in the SM Fluff clan.

Like the Soul reavers. The whole poin was to avoid a legion of the damned army or that kind of thing, and make one that is good and fluufy, and that no-one else(hopefully! will have...and provides an excuse to use the 13th legion miniatures...ahem...) Will stick to my idea, Garro as the leader, with elites from the death guard(using the pre-heresy colours), along with some miniatures from the empeor's children(love the purple!,using Codex CSM with some heavy restriction on wargear and troop types that can be taken(ie no daemons..) those left that didn't become druggie, hedonistic pleasure seekers. Also after a third legion to add balance to the purple and white any ideas?
