Greetings to everyone,
First I just wanted to say how delighted I was to find an entire forum for the Alpha Legion! I have been playing warhammer/40k for almost ten years, fantasy mainly, and in those ten years i never quite could figure out which of the twenty legions fit best into my playstyle, paint schemes etc...and due to that fact I never started a marine army (maybe some commitment issues...) until now. I dont have much in the way of models for my army yet, just a humble battleforce worth, but from what I have read in these forums and the pictures I've seen I'll try to post some pictures of the legion as it comes along. My gaming community here doesnt have much in terms of advice, or background knowledge of our legion, or anything useful to me (they're all loyalists...) so I want to say thanks ahead of time for any help I may get here!
Burning down the imperium one brick at a time,
Welcome to the Lair, Shadowblade; I hope we can be of use to you, and am looking forward to seeing how your force progresses.
As far as your gaming group is concerned, you should follow the oldest of AL principles; tell them that you're going to be making a loyalist faction of your own!
Any indication as to what flavour of Alpha Legion you'll be building (Chaos/Loyalist/Insurrectionists)?
