Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've finally decided to stop trrying to make my own legion/rules, having read the codex properly several times, and came across the undivided extra legions.
Both Alpha Legion and Night Lords caught my eye, and I'm divided as to which one to go for.
I don't intend on using many daemons, if any at all, except maybe for a converting exercise. Even then, I think that only furies or a greater daemon would really appeal to me.
I intend on using bikes. Lord /retinue of 2, all on bikes, , a unit or two of bikers otherwise, CSM in rhinos, maybe some raptors, and all that jazz. Having played necrons for a while, im mainly into chaos for the building/ converting/ painting/ mobility.
I don't like cultists.
I think that infiltrate would be more useful than stealth adepts.
I'd be playing with assaulting bikes and rapid firing CSM.
I won't do Khorne.
I love the Night Lords fluff.
Overall, I think that night lords are more my cup of tea, but, as I said, I think that infiltrate would be more useful than stealth adepts. Night vision A) sounds pretty useless more useless than that. I would either be playing against a shooty army, when my opponent wouldn't want to play nightfighting as it would be hugely to my advantage, or a CC army who would be only too happy to do night fighting, but would leave me at a disadvantage.
Any experience with either of those? Any help with my dilemma? I play against tau, orks, IG, SM, Tyranids.
PS: Obviously I would do my own paint job/ embellishments, and convert the lord and retinue out of normal bikers. otherwise it would just be stupid.

I woud think that the Alpha Legion would be better against more "shooty" armies...especially when you can swarm infiltrating cultists. Against smaller armies (and not so shooty armies) I would go with Night Lords only because I absolutely love Raptors...
*NIght Lord fluff is uber as well

I'm a recent Night lord player and I do think that no army can beat the mobility of Night Lord, as long as your are able to play with less models. They offer the best tactical flexibility. Otherwise, Alpha Legion is the second best mobile army as they are infiltrating smoothly (some may say it's the first, but Night Lords move faster).
CHAOS Undiv.: won 14/22 games EC: 4/7 WE: 6/9 DG: 10/15, TS: 3/7 Orks : 13/20 SM NL : 1/6 TAU: 14 of 24 IG: 3/7
Overall I think you are right, but stealth adept is not to be underestimated. And you can still infiltrate your nightlords.Originally Posted by Tunisia
