BoLS Chaos Legion Rules

Postby Dez » Wed Feb 02, 2011 9:50 am

I'm still reading them now, but thought I would share. I'd be happy to play with these rules in friendly games.

while i did not read all of them, I did scroll down to the Alpha Legion section. I have been trying to work an AL army onto paper and Id like to know more about what BoLS has come up with . I do not have the current SM or IG book so in a nut shell (copyright rules remember!):

what does "Combat Tactics and ATSKNF" mean?

Special Weapon Squads from the IG book is what?

Guardsman Marbo has Flak armour; Ripper pistol; Envenomed blade are all wargear which do what.

thats all I ask. thanks

Those look pretty fun. Not over the top, but a little change from the standard rules. I'd give them a shot.

Combat Tactics is a Space Marine Special Rule that allows you to divide the squad up into two squads, if I remember correctly.

ATSKNF = And They Shall Know No Fear. This is the rule that lets them auto regroup.

Can't list Marbo's stats and stuff, but I know he has a range 8 large blast weapon that is like S8 or 10, and AP 1 or 2. Other than that, he just appears on the table like a lictor.

Special Weapons squads from the IG book are 6 dudes, and 3 can be armed with sniper rifles, plasma rifles, melta guns, flamers, grenade launchers, and I think a demo charge or 3 (See marbo description).

That's Combat Squads, the Combat Tactics let them choose to autofail morale tests.

ATSKNF not only allows them to always regroup (unless within 6" of an enemy unit), but also makes sure they never get caught and destroyed in a sweeping advance.

very intresting fluff wise to toss in Marbo. He would fit the AL story. This might be a better way for me.

Back to the paper army...........

PS i think the large blast thing you speak of is his demo charge. bummer that he is not in either old IG book that I have......
