Alpha Legion

Do you want to go back to the glory days when the Emperor wasn’t bound to the Golden Throne? When even the smallest legion was the size of eighty or more chapters? When men were real men, women were real women, and eight-foot warrior monks were real eight-foot warrior monks atheists? Do you want to collect re-built, revamped Rogue Trader models? Do you think the 6th edition Chaos Space Marine codex sucks ass and want to bring back the old glory days of 3rd edition Legion Rules? Do you want Martian Death Rays for your marines and transports that make the Land Raider and Thunderhawk look a little small? Do you want these armies to be lead by a force no less than the Primarchs themselves? Well Forge World has heard your pleas, and has finally delivered thanks to their new Horus Heresy line.

The main xenos races in the Milky Way Galaxy are the Dark Eldar , Eldar , Necrons , Orks , Tau and Tyranids , though there are countless other intelligent alien species, most of them hostile, that Mankind has encountered over the long millennia of its expansion across the stars.

The Alpha Legion is the Chaos Space Marine Traitor Legion about whom the least is known. The Alpha Legion was once the XX Legion of Astartes created during the First Founding by the Emperor of Mankind to carry out His Great Crusade to reunite all of humanity in a new Golden Age under His rule.

This secrecy was colluded — as is evident — by the highest circles of power. Indeed, it cannot be doubted that it was the Emperor’s will. It is believed by many Imperial scholars that the secrecy surrounding this “outsider” Legion and its designed purposes would later serve to conceal the dark transformation at its heart which was long in its gestation. This malediction and the increasing addiction for the evincing of its own preternatural use for subterfuge and destruction, only worsened after the ascension of Horus to the rank of Warmaster.

The Alpha Legion became a twisting serpentine force of formless shadows, as dangerous and deadly as the multi-headed monster of ancient myth that in latter days became its modus operandi and its icon. It was a weapon neither first the Emperor nor later the Warmaster could control. The pall of mystery surrounding the XXth Legion can be traced back to their creation. What plan of the Emperor’s lay behind this action cannot now be known, and even at the dawning of the Imperial Age, this was one of many secrets the Emperor kept both from the Imperial Court and many of His own advisors, and the Primarchs themselves.

These Legions were kept veiled and distant from the beginning, breeding distrust between them that, save in the case of the XVIIIth Legion — who would later become the widely renowned Salamanders Legion — would never disappear. In the case of the Alpha Legion, it would instead worsen over time. This first mystery would breed others, and questions would continue to go unanswered not simply about the XXth Legion’s methods and nature, but about the use to which it was put in its earliest days.

Of the early decades of the XXth Legion on Terra and during the re-conquest of the Sol System almost nothing can be said with any accuracy whatsoever, and even the cluster of myths and rumours that would later grow to surround the Legion’s activities is absent.
