    Frankly, I was expecting at least a whisper of the Emperor's Children - what isn't there to love about The Chaos God Formerly Known As Prince?

    Though, with the current selection, I'm torn between the Black Legion and Iron Warriors. :p

    I am slightly disappointed about the choice of Legions. I was expecting they would pick Legions associated with a particular Chaos God as it would work well in a pick one of four system, so World Eaters, Death Guard, Thousand Sons or Emperor's Children. In such a system I would go Thousand Sons > Death Guard > Emperor's Children = World Eaters.

    Obviously though they decided to make it less cookie cutter so of the four I'd have to go with Black Legion cause Iron Warriors are kinda boring lore wise, I hate Lorgar too much to pick Word Bearers, and I find the Night Lords to be really annoying. If I had one wish I wish they would have gone with Alpha Legion over Night Lords for their infiltration based Legion, then I would've picked Alpha Legion for sure.

    Theres still the upcoming vote for the 5th subfaction for all races, i have a hunch the Alphas will win that voting.

    Only problem with that is with the Night Lords still in the roster that would mean two infiltration based Chaos Legions. So going meta for a second I suspect Black Legion are probably tanky, Iron Warriors are long (maybe short) range physical dps, Word Bearers are likely buffs and healz, Night Lords I suspect are sneaky assassins (burst dps). Just my presumptions. So what is needed to round this out is a long (maybe short) range magic dps. So of all the Chaos Legions I think would best round out the roster would be Thousand Sons (or any other Legion presumed associated with Tzeentch and magic). Thus in a voting system for adding another Legion I would put my vote in for the Thousand Sons rather than the Alpha Legion, as that would prove redundant.

    PS. How do you add the person you're quoting when quoting? I clicked the Reply button, it did nothing.

    Actually the devs have went on quite a few times to explain god dedication will be something that will be expanded post launch, and that aside from god Marks we wont be seeing much more in terms of god specific stuff.
    So the chances of a god legion making the vote are slim to none, deviating further to none cause of the confirmed possibility that warbands might make the vote.

    Also to quote use the button on the lower right part of the post you are quoting that says "Reply", this will automatically do the work for you. If it doesent work contact one of the moderators, theres always 1 or 2 lurking about.

    No Emperor's Children. No pain. No pleasure.

    Traditionally: All the Undivided legions include Chaos Cults that hold loyal to one of the gods rather than undivided. The chaos of having Berserkers running besides Noise and Plague Marines is a major part of the fun when it comes to a WB or BL force (coming from a dedicated Emperor's Children follower here). I would happily suck up some serious gear/skill limitations (compared to SMs/Undivided) for decent Cult markings and access to sonic weapons or plague blades etc. GW games have a tendency to disappoint though in favor of balance.

    Alpha Legion is pure stealth and subterfuge, NLs of the 4 current choices are the fast attack/shock specialists. I suppose compared to WB and IL they are generally more 'surprising' but I always picture them marching to war in columns of corpse-lined Rhinos with flights of Raptors leaping out at the last second to further demoralize the enemy. Good times :eek:
  9. I would rather say the Iron Warriors would be rather Tanky as they are Siege experts
    Black Legion are the typical all rounders
    Night Lords are not stealty, they use Terror tactocs and Shock troops, Apha Legion is pure Stealth and Infiltration

    However, I also bet that the Alpha Legion will win the bet, becaus of the 9 Chaos "Legions" (1. founding Warbands) 4 are devided and will probably not make it into the game, then we have to 4 which are announced.
    The only one left is the Alpha Legion.
    Well, maybe they will take some no name Warband into the game like the Crimson Slaughteres or Nemmeroths Choosen, but I highly doubt that
