Is it all right if I refer to my space marine as a legion, rather than a chapter. I mean for them to be a non chaos rogue group/ mercenaries.
Are they pre-heresy or a chaos legion? If not then the answer is probably no, since most marine legions followed the codex of Guilman in that they would break up into smaller chapters. So You'd be going with the title of chapter, not legion...

true, but in a sense its possible, in some outlying area of the galaxy, like a rogue inquisitor, still fighting in the name of the meperor, vanquishing daemons and such, just using some unorthodox methods, so if the man wants a bigger chapter so he can kick bigger ass, who are we to stop him? its a great fluff oppurtunity, like a bad cop movie.

Space Marines are the gateway drug
If everyone makes fun of West Virginia, who does West Virginia make fun of?
you could always fluff it to be one of those leigions expunged from library, although i think its reserved for the SOul Drinkers and Scythes of the Emperor. then technically, it would/could be considered to be a legion unaffected by the hersey. the SM Legion i made up was enroute to a distant, but small system to liberate it from the orc empire's control to make it there own. you can pretty much do whatever you want to do.
Thats one way to confuse the hell out of people, so its probably not a good idea, If you were playing Black templars or a pre heresy army I could see it as being okay then.

Thanks for the perspectives yall gave me, and I will be generating a fluffy story and posting it soon, keeping the marines a legion.
