Default Worst Traitor Legion currently

So which chaos legion would you send back to the imperium to go fight and be one of the good guys. Explain why you think they suck it can be from a fluff stand point or a gaming stand point even though they all use the same codex.

I would send to the Imperium Alpharius Omegon and the Alpha legion. They just tried to do what they thought Daddy wanted, and then failed miserably.

Sometimes i wonder 'Why is that frisbee getting bigger?', and then it hits me.

be sent back to the imperium?

um... Sons of Horus/Black Legion... yeah they ain't going to come back to the Imperium. Not for the least of reasons being the whole Heresy thing.

Thousand Sons: 1) They violated a personal edict from the emporer and continued studying Sorcerory. 2) Like 90% of them are magically animated suits. Not much to come back with.

World Eaters: um.... Blood for the Blood god!!!!!

Plague Marines: Yeah, let's invite giant plague infested super-solders back who are covered with festering boils. That'll go well.

Emporer's Children: Sorry, they're just tooo far gone mentally.Not even normal war can sate their lust for emotional heights.

Word Bearers: Um... well, I mean the imperium does venerate the emporer as a god... but then again theres the whole thing of the Chaos Gods not liking to be stiffed. That could have problems.

Iron Warriors: Yeah, they got abused and forgotten about for decades at a time. The only way they're coming back to the imperium is over the Imperium's broken body.

Be Sure to follow me on:

Of the original Legions, I think the only ones that could be good again are the Alpha Legion and the Iron Warriors. The problem is that the first ones spent the last ten thousand years turning chapters and planets to Chaos, I doubt they would give up all their hard work, and the Iron Warriors hate the Emperor too much to serve him again, and they enjoy their freedom to much to let it go.

If you mean what legion could have been saved...well then pretty much all of them, maybe not the Word Bearers. A lot of little elements could have changed Horus's view on the Emperor and the Chaos Gods, first he could have avoided being wounded on Davin, he could also have ignored Erebus while in his "dreams", and so on... And Horus is the starting point, if he does not fall, then nearly nobody does: Mortarion and Angron are not convinced by Horus to join him to defeat the Emperor and serve the Chaos Gods, there is no threat to the Emperor so Magnus doesn't have to send a phsychic message using magic, Perturabo would have been able to take some rest between campaign and avoid the riots on Olympia, Night Haunter would not have seen visions of the Heresy and battles of Space Marines against Space Marines, and therefore would not turn insane.
And Fulgrim could have left the deamon sword where it was.

Haha this. I just think that, in a Codex that relies on the traitor LEGIONS, it's stupid to have a special character from one of the non-original Legions, especially since Alpha Legion, Iron Warriors, Night Lords, and Word Bearers get no SC love.

However, if I had to choose one of the original Legions, I'd go with 1K Sons. Sure, they've got sorcerers, but they're all a bunch of dust-filled shells that have the intelligence of my left ball (which is the more dimwitted of my two testicles). Instead of knowledgeable turns to Chaos, theirs was accidental.

Lastly, given the current Codex, 1K Sons just suck, be gone with you!

I have to disagree with this. My understanding is that Angron always hated the Emperor for kidnapping him and indirectly making him watch as the gladiators whom has joined with him were killed. That coupled with the Cerebral implants pretty much doomed the World Eaters from the get go in my opinion. Horus merely provided Angron support and direction.

The OP asked which Chaos Legion would become one of the 'good' guys, the Soul Drinkers aren't devoted to Chaos.

Praise the sun!
