Alpha Legion for a friend,1500pts
« on: March 31, 2008, 12:09:50 PM »
My friend asked me last night to try to make him an armylist that fits his theme well and can be as competitive as possible. I know little about Alpha Legion a part from the fact they infiltrate heavy and used cultistes to summon lesser daemons. After making this armylist, i felt very dirty...

HQ- Daemon Prince
Wings

130pts

HQ-Daemon Prince

130pts

HQ-Greater Daemon!!!!!!

100pts


Troops-10 Chaos Space Marines
2 meltaguns
IoCG
Champ+ PF
Rhino

255pts

Troops-10 Chaos Space Marines

IoCG
Champ+PF
Rhino

255pts


Elite-10 Chosens
Asp.Champ
PF
Paired Lightningclaws
3 Meltaguns
IoK

295pts


Elite-10 Chosens
Powerfist
Paired Lightningclaws
3 Meltaguns
IoK

285pts


Now that leaves me 50pts to spend and gives me a solide 45 models in total. As you might have guessed, one of the Chosen's Squad has an AC with nothing on him, but that he counts has 28 pts while a regurlar AC will cost 30pts. I've never tried a Greater Daemon but i figured that this is the only way to be sure that a GD will arrive and then assault after summoning, or worst assault the next turn with 2 DPs.

Hm.  I'd be more in favor of at least one Chaos Lord for fluff reasons.  Besides, 2 Daemon Princes in one small warband isn't entirely likely.

Check out their wiki entry for ideas.

Assaulting in as many ways as possible might be impossible with almost 1500 points is tough.  When your friend expands to 2000 points he might add some Raptors and DS'ing Terminators.
Proposition beslubber wins by a landslide!  I'm the 2008 Space Marine poster of the year.

Don't listen to the drunk dragon...

I would suggest IoCG on the Chosen instead, and then another champ in the other squad so the Greater Daemon will have options when coming in... this will result in 80 ish points left.

I don't think you really need the greater daemon though, you've got the 2 DP's already...

Freeing that up you'll have 180 points, enough for somethng else... like a squad of 10 CSM, 2 melta, IoCG as a footslogger squad as a third wave, or even some havocs.

Maybe some kroot as 'count as' cultists...

My 7 Cents.
If you meet a bear named Sanctjud in the tavern, don't get into his van for candy.  I did once....it's sticky, salty, and really not very nice. :(
Raptor Jesus will get you Tangi... oh he will.

Krultists would be a great addition to this army, as they easily represent the chaos cultists that the Alpha Legion are famous for.

I'm still in favor of dropping a DP.  I <3 GSDaemons.
