Ifrit446 Posted November 23, 2012 Share Posted November 23, 2012 Hello brothers of Chaos, You all know me around here and I've come to you guys with somewhat of a dilemma as of late...I can't quite choose between two Legions for my Chaos Marines and my Dark Angels "Count-As". My current choice is between my two all-time favorite Legions: The VIII Legion of Night Lords, and the XX Legion of the Alphas. Looking into my experiences with the two, the Alphas were my first army in 40k back with the 3.5 Dex...And HOLY HELL were they beautiful. I was a casual gamer and did things that looked cool and fun, and ninja marines that show up wherever sounded epic to me. Moving along to today, they are still a sweeeeeeet Legion and I enjoy their fluff/playing them in Space Marine Multiplayer but I have abit of trouble fielding them on the tabletop due to me seeing them as more of an elite killteam army , due to fluff, rather than a numerous army (Which is why I used Paladins previously to represent them). Now the Night Lords are a relatively new beast to me, and I've been on that train since Lord of the Night and Soul Hunter's release shortly after. On a sidenote, I've always been a vampire fan (not those gay sparkley ones) and the Night Lords are very reminiscent of vampires to me (which helps fan my love for them). I also have almost every piece of fluff on them and have converted Vampire Counts bits to my Chaos Marines for extra measure of being "Crazy, psychotic Night Lords-worthy". But I really enjoy their idealologies and everything that they do, from any standpoint in the Legion whther it's Talos, Krieger or my fan-favorite Sevatar B) Now my current plans are to build both a Chaos Marine army, full of character conversions and eccentricly-modelled/customized units as well as (PLEASE DON"T KILL ME!!) a Dark Angel army for the good fun of fielding all Termies again. So with the Night Lords I could make the Dark Angels be a small contingent of Atrementar replete with chains, spikes and wings galore (along with a modelled Sevatar to lead them, and maybe even a Konrad Curze as Belial based on his equipment). I could also however, model my Angels as an Alpha Legion kill-team being either in Termie armor or I can truescale them and have them as just super-badass marines in Power armor along with allied Imperial Guard for cultist Infiltrators ;) But now comes the dilemma between the two, I HAVE to choose. I can't have units from both mixed up because my OCD makes me want to tear out my hair when my army isn't matching :( So I come to you guys, my brothers in arms, to get some feedback. Which of the two would you guys go with based on the above wall-of-text??? Thanks for any commentary :lol: -Ifrit Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
