As we have a thread on Favourite Loyal Chapter I though I might start up one for the heretics. That and the fact that I started one on my old stomping grounds and it lead to some interesting results.

So whats your favourite Chaos legion? PLease state why as well.

Me I just love the Nightlords. The very first heretics, yes even before Horus. They look dam good and evil (and yes I do like the winged helmets). They don't follow any of the Chaos Gods but just do what they do because they killing people and spreading fear and terror.

Oh yea and

Adeo Mori Servus Imerator Fictus
Ave Dominus Nox!!!


Translation: So die the slaves of the False Emporer. Hail to the Lord of the Night!!!

In other words when I get my DH's to 1000 points I'm off to make me some Night Lords. I have a squad of them from a kneejerk buy when the new ones come out so I might paint them up when I finish my PAGK's.

Also if a shadowy guy by the name of Incarus Var comes asking who made this thread and posted the heretical writing above point him in the opposite direction that I'm in.

Actually Word Bearers were the first to turn to heresey, the only difference is while the Word bearers were the first to accept the chaos gods, night lords i think were the first to openly turn to chaos.. i think, still not sure about the nightlords but i do kno there word beaerers where the first to turn
Anyways yes my favorite legion is Word Bearers :lol: Dark Apostle/chaos chaplain and daemons, lots and lots of daemons
And cant go wrong with daemonic seals instead of purity seals and other great coversion opportunities either!

Tough choice here, I really like the whole dark/evil vibe of the Night Lords and
the great background of the Alpha Legion end their cults. But my vote has to
go to the original chaos worshippers; Wordbearers.

You didn't capitalise "i".

You didn't put a capital letter at the start of the sentence beginning with "but".

You didn't put an apostrophe in "it's".

You fail at the internet.

You also neglected to put an apostrophe in "it's".

You fail at the internet too.
Out of your first 6 posts Gunlinetastic 5 have been blatant unsophisticated trolling attempts. Unfortunately, you suck at being a troll - why not crawl back under the stone and continue being a slug? You suit it better.

Your other post, the one about Chaos sucking should be directed at the current GT winner. I'm sure he'd give you some guidance as he polishes and returns his winning GT Chaos list to its case.

Please respect the members of our forum. The daemonic ban-stick craves your soul.

Sorry I have a habit of this. When I said that they were Heretics I ment that they were the of the Legions to stop following the Emporer. They did it of their own valition as well. I didn't mean that they were the first to turn to Chaos. That spot well and trully goes to the Word Bearers. They have never actually accepted the Chaos Gods either. By that I mean that they do not worship them. So no the Night Lords were not the first to worship chaos as they never have. They see it as a weakness.

In the Index Astartes on them in plainly states that they went rogue before the Heresy and that the Emporer was going to start investigating them untill Horus flicked him the birdie.

But (I'm typing as I think here) I now see what you are saying. The Word Bearers were the first to turn BUT the Night Lords were the first to break off their ties to the Imperium. The Word Bearers kept it quiet for a while after the Emporer shunned them. So to us living in the real world its the Word Bearers but in the 40k world its the Nigh Lords. If you follow my logic.

Do you get me?

Ahh the problems of living in NZ where you cannot get Black Library books for anything less than a arm, a leg and your kidneys. :|

Ahh that i kno :lol: Yeah Night Lords ditched first Remember reading that somewhere that the Emperor was about to deal with the Night lords excess behaviour (killing anything and everything ruthlessly) when the news of the heresy hit correct?

Spot on. And the reason for them going rogue was that Konrad Cruze and Rogal Dorn got into a bit of a literal punch up (with Konrad winning!!!) over a percieved slight on the Emporers name (made by Konrad). Konrad was locked away in his room like a bad little boy while the other Primarchs had a meeting and decided what to do with him. When they went to get him he had killed his guards, escaped and took his chapter with him. From there he went to his homeworld, destroyed it and then went about attacking anybody he wanted.

Before the Emporer could try and arrest them Horus did a copy cat and told the Emporer to shove it up his high and mighty ass. The rest is as they say history.

Thats just what I know from the Index Astartes on them. The Horus Herasy books may tell a different story but I havn't read them yet as they are too hard and too expensive to get over in the NZ :(

Hope that clears it up

ARRGGH! Don't make me choose please.

Erm Thousand Sons, cause they were my first, Alpha Legion because of the cultists, and Emperors Children because of the Glam Rock/Boobies thing. Meh 'Boobies' :lol:

Erm, uh, aww Emperors Children.

Ps I don't think the Emperor would be too chuffed with the continued mis-spelling of his title. Expect a visit from the Inquisition, heretics! :lol:
