Default Legion specific Chaos

Do any of the original chaos players still field a legion specific army?
Ive noticed a lot of the older players that i have meet have moved on and conformed to undivieded. I have stayed true to my slaanesh themed army since 3rd ed. I also have a iron warrior army, but my basalisks have been retired. and oblits dont count as elites so they have been sitting in the box aswell.
My question is, do any of you older chaos players still field a legion specific army? if so, is it because you are loyal to youre fluff, or is their advantages to fielding a legion.
If you dont why?

I am sticking to my Tzeentch-only CSM.

This is purely for fluff reasons.

I still play according to the fluff of the Iron Warriors, just because it suits the current codex well (We don't like Fast Attack? Cool, FA sucks anyway. We love Heavy Support? Great! Some of the best Chaos units are here. We have lots of Oblits? Awesome, Oblits rock! ). I always take 2 CSM squads every time I play, along with a Berzerker squad (which suits the IW fluff) and a Plague Marines squad (which sadly doesn't ). I never take Possessed and Daemons, and my DP is not finished yet so I never play him. I also like to take a lot of melta weaponry as well as some lascannons.

But I would feel bad if I was playing Night Lords

Check out my army: Iron Warriors 44th company

Whatever happens I'll be playing Death Guard. I was fascinated by them, and Nurgle stuff in general, before I ever decided to actually try and make an army of my own; so I didn't (and still don't) really care how good they may or may not have been on the tabletop - I just knew I wanted an army of them.

Nurgle for life!

Personally I like Slaanesh, I find his followers interesting.

I love the Death Guard. Works for me (even though my army was FAR better under the previous Codex, and would probably be better now too)

I play an all-Khorne (not World Eaters) army.
