Welcome to Librarium Online!
Since the Legion has been rereleased in Apocalypse as a data sheet (found here: http://uk.games-workshop.com/apocalypse/datasheets/1/), I'm curious to see what others have to say about converting these rules to work better with a standard game of 40k.
I have a few ideas, but I'd like to hold on to those until I've heard what some others think first.
Thanks in advance everyone,
I'm thinking something around 25 points per tactical marine and 40 for the terminators due to their special rules, and they always have the option to deep strike. In a friendly game I don't think most people would have a problem with that.
The points sound pretty fair, though the whole army deep striking that seems a bit overkill in a normal game.
I think it would be better if the whole army either deployed together or just moved on as reserves in the first turn, I can't really see LoD turning up piecemeal, I imagine them all showing up at once.
It depends really - Katie, were you thinking of them working as allies for an existing Imperial force, like DH WH or DW, or did you mean as in regards to them forming a seperate army to be used on their own?
The way I see it, the Cursed Foundings rules are probably a good template to start from, especially in the manner that they reach the battlefield (deep striking during deployment. Odd, but makes sense). It would then only be a matter of deciding which units they're allowed to take, and increasing their points costs to take into account the fact that they're recieving Feel No Pain instead of a 6+ Invulnerable.
I think I must've missed the rules for the Cursed Foundings, are they on any of the websites or are they one of those "if you didn't get WD that month you're screwed" sets of rules?
Deep strike deployment would probably work I guess... but as you can probably appreciate, with me being an Ultramarine player the idea of not being able to deploy neatly turns my stomach!
I would love to take them as allies though, I'd have to write a scenario for the attack on Boros(?) for sure once the new Ork 'dex is out!
Of course, if you are using them as allies then they have to fit into the FoC... do you allow them Heavy Support or Fast Attack slots?
I suppose if you go for the same as the DH/WH, you can have your HQ (Commander), Elites (Terminators or Dreadnought) and Troops (Legion of The Damned Squads), that works out pretty well.
Points value is the one that requires the most though but I would have to do that from home so I could compare costs of other units with Feel No Pain and 'Deep Strike-type stuff'.
Okie dokie... their rules can be found in Chapter Approved 2004. The old ones, that is.
I think you have to use the Chapter Approved 2004's rules along with the Apocalypse new ones for point allocation... But since the CA 2004 is official and accepted use those rules rather than the older in WD's...
Now I think I can play my Legion a lot better than I could... ;Y
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
