    Alpha Legion Questions

    Greetings Brothers of Chaos,

    I am currently building an :ninja: Alpha Legion Army :ninja: and i have some questions. May be some of you can guide me.

    1 - In an Alpha Legion army, does every unit have to be marked with the Mark of Chaos Undivided? Can some unit be marked with another Chaos Mark?

    2 - Can the whole army be left unmarked? If so, can they still use the infiltrate at the point cost indicated in the alpha legion profile?

    3 - I am looking to build cultits squads but i am not sure which model to use. Which model would you advise using? Should i do a conversion from an existing model... like catachan soldiers?

    Thank you in advance for your wisdom brothers. May the Chaos Gods bring you strength!

    They may only have the Mark of Undivided. They can choose to not have this mark if they wish, but they may not have any other mark.

    The Marks restriction and the Veteran Skill bonus are completely seperate and not dependant upon each other.

    The most popular choices are -
    Imperial Guard converted in some way...
    Necromunda models...
    The old Cultist models that can be found in the Online Store archives.

    Thanks Caluin,

    i have one more question. Can i have a Chaos Lord with a retinue of Chosen and a Chaos Lieutenant with a separate retinue of Chosen.

    With this answered, i am ready to join the rank of the Alpha Legion...

    Yes, provided you have the chosen available for the point limit your playing. They will take up 1 elite slot. Note that you can also take a further 1 unit of chosen by themselves, without using an additional elite slot.

    hmm you know this is exactly the kind of thing Caluin had in mind when he set up that questions thread up the top of the page. Guess it kind of failed.
    Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!

    If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.

    Hard to tell if it failed or not. You'll never know exactly how many people have actually read the Q&A and then not had to post a thread, since you never see those threads. All you can do is make a conjecture on whether the amount of question threads have gone down or not.

    In this particular case we didn't have any of the questions in the Q&A thread yet. Perhaps people could actually put some of their questions and answers into the thread....
