Default Horus Heresy, which Legion is for you?

Pretty straightforward, I know I'm excited as hell to maybe at some point get the Horus Heresy, Book 1 in the mail so that I can start plotting away at my army list.

Despite the fact that the Alpha Legion is my favourite, I find myself leaning towards Emperor's Children, due to the fact that I can play my CSM army as both (and it's slightly Slaaneshi heavy).

So... easy question: Are you in, if so, which legion and why?

hmmmm, I play chaos in 40k so i'd give the loyalists a go in 30k. Either salamanders or white scars just because they i have always like the way they look. Although probobly slamanders thanks to varakir.

I wont be making any firm descisions until some more books are released becuase as i said i dont want to play chaos in 30k.

I think that I would go with the Space Wolves. The thought of those buggers in Legion strength gives me chills.

XII - World Eaters. Why? Why the hell would you not want a bunch of crazy chain-axe wielding space gladiators?

World's Worst Project-Logger.

Slightly Derranged, would advice staying away.

White Scars, really? That wasn't one I was expecting to see this soon in the thread lol. They've always been one of the ones I always remember is a legion but never really pay them any mind, since they've (for the most part) always just been glossed over.

Space Wolves and World Eaters were fairly obvious favourites though Though to call the World Eaters "gladiators" I think is a bit generous, they were all the SONS of a gladiator without having fought in the arenas themselves. Still chainaxe-wielding-maniacs though, so they've got that going for them

Space Wolves. I may not ever have heresy books but I would definitely want to play as a legion of Space Vikings.

Even though I probably won't get the book, I'd like to think that I'd do a Sons of Horus/Luna Wolves Army. Because well, Horus Rising.

I had a hard time choosing between the Space Wolves and the Luna Wolves to be honest. In the end I have always leaned more toward the Loyalists so that is what tipped the balance.

It's difficult, I love the Imperial Fists but I find yellow a pain in a butt to be happy with when it comes to painting. I'm growing to like the Raven Guard more and more, if only there were more appearances of them pre-istvaan massacre.

I've always stayed away from the more exposed legions like Space Wolves, Blood Angels and Dark Angels preferring the more understated ones in the hope they will shine in the HH series, so far Raven Guard and Imperial Fists are where as IHs have gone back in my estimations.

On the traitor front, I like the look and idea of the Death Guard, but apart from Garro nothing else written about them has made them grow in my opinions. I've enjoyed the Alpha Legion more than I would of thought, however I still have compunctions when it comes to the way they fight, I prefer the idea of units of marines fighting on the front line or in an ambush as opposed to espionage. Emperor's Children is no longer my on counter as Legion I could like after Angel Exterminatus. Word Bearers...well they still appear like adolescent teenager whose listened to a stranger and become addicted to drugs rather than listening to it's parents warning.

I don't think I could play a legion who turned traitor, unless there was a very good reason but none of them so far really have offered an acceptable reason for me.

Playing so much Chaos in 40K loyalist in 30K.

Oddly I'm White Scars, mmmm Bikes as troop in 40K ( I'm using those rules already, add 2 Landraiders on outflank, what's not to like.), so maybe even Jetbikes in 30K? Pure Sexy.

Maybe not so oddly then lol.
