    Cursed Founding

    A while back rules were published for using an army of marines from the cursed founding. Chapters like hte Minotaurs, Legion of the Damned, etc. I don't suppose these can be used in 4th edition rules correct? Well at least not unless they publish updated rules for them. Just making sure. :wacko:

    Sure they can, though not in any tournaments or official games. They're balanced enough that they can be used in friendly games. It's basically an early version of the Chapter Traits system, although I don't know if an update is coming.

    Thought so. I try to keep all my armies as official as possible so nevermind. Just brainstorming ideas. I'm always on the lookout for that next theme army idea.

    The Legion of the Damned has always been popular, it's entirely likely they'll get their own Chapter Approved article with new rules or something. The others should just use likely traits.

    If you want something "official" in terms of rules you could always use the traits system to represent what you think they would be.
    I can read now!

    The Cursed Founding Chapters, using rules as released in the 2004 Annual, are neither legal nor illegal... they are discretional.

    These armies are different, and generally cost a lot more points and have many restrictions. I personally, as a Legion Of The Damned player, know very few players that would object to their use in a friendly game.

    Remember though, that before using them, it is sporting to explain all the specific rules (and the unique troops such as Cursed Knights and Abominations) to your opponent.

    True, they all seem to suffer some on the points front, so most players shouldn't mind (despite the rules being published in 3rd Edition). The rules are very characterful and not uber-deadly, so you should be fine, and it's always nice to see an army that isn't Blood Angels or Dark Angels or Space Wolves or (gods forbid) Ultramarines (or even Black Templars, the jerks ).
