Reecius slangin’ articles on GW’s community site! Check it out…
Hey everyone. We got Reecius – from the Las Vegas Open – here to discuss building some fun, themed lists using the new Traitor Legions supplement for Warhammer 40,000! In this first article, we’ll look at the Black Legion, Alpha Legion and Iron Warriors.
Reece: Wow, the Traitor Legions supplement is just fantastic! It gives us some incredible rules for Chaos Space Marines, but the ability to build fun, effective, themed armies is what jumped out at me right away.
I have included in this article ideas for building some Chaos Space Marines armies that reflect the characteristic traits of their Legions. Now, by no means are these meant to be the only way to play these Legions, they’re just my personal ideas on fun ways to get them on the table!
The Black Legion has a ton of options for ways to play the army, but the rule that really jumped out at me was the First Amongst Traitors special rule, which makes Chaos Terminators and Chosen into Troops choices! Objective Secured (ObjSec) on those units is pretty outstanding and not something I’d want to miss out on. However, after reading the Speartip Strike Command Benefit of the Black Legion Speartip detachment, I decided it was fairly fantastic and so opted for this as the framework within which to build my theoretical Black Legion warband. Plus, I LOVE Chaos Terminator models!
