Alright, so new year, new army. After February I'll be starting up a 30k/ 40k Alpha Legion army! I will be using the Mark III and IV armor rather than chaos stuff because Alpha Legion did not flee into the eye of terror despite being a traitor legion, although I will obviously have to use the CSM codex. I'm going to make it an almost exclusively infantry army and try to make my HQ units blend in with the rest of my army (save for some minor markings) to cause confusion Alpha Legion style! I'm very much looking forward to this 😁😁 #warhammer40k#alphalegion#iamalpharius#forgeworld#chaosspacemarines
Watchmaster Nogemo Suirahpla joins the Deathwatch Europe! This reclusive Blackshield has proven himself a master of intelligence gathering, devising attack plans that seem excessively complicated, yet are always deadly effective. No one knows where he comes from, yet rumours suggest he still honours his parent Primarch... I took a while to finish this one, but I'm happy with the result ;) #deathwatch#deathwatcheurope#warhammer#paintinglife#iamalpharius
"After Alpharius' disagreements with Roboute Guilliman over the supposed "dishonourable ways" of his Legion's chosen methods of warfare, the Alpha Legion threw themselves even further into their preferred method of operations, largely cutting themselves off from standard Imperial military practices and orchestrating greater and greater victorious examples of their approach to the Great Crusade, even when more conventional attacks would have been more efficient. The most notorious example of this took place on the world of Tesstra Prime, where the Alpha Legion, instead of taking the opportunity to capture the planetary capital city and thus force the world's surrender, allowed the enemy to dig in and defend it so that they could then expertly take the defending forces apart in a number of different ways. After a week of suffering seemingly random mishaps and deadly sabotage as well as brutal ambushes, the defenders were forced to capitulate, having taken 90% casualties. When asked why the XXth Legion had not taken the simpler strategy, Alpharius is reported to have replied that they avoided it as "it would have been too easy". This campaign brought Alpharius censure from almost all of his brother Primarchs. Guilliman in particular raged at Alpharius' conduct of the war, labeling the drawn-out operation as "a waste of the Emperor's bolt shells". Only the Warmaster Horus, always impressed by Alpharius and his work, praised the Alpha Legion's skill."
