Goatboy’s 40K: Alpha Legion Possessed FTW

3 Minute Read

Goatboy here with a list I will most likely bring to LVO. Say hello to my little sneaky possessed friends.

I am waiting on some parts to finish it off (I like the FW possessed) but once it is together I can hopefully get a game or two with it.  I need to finish the 15 models left and fix some bases but bam – it will be done.

My Cunning Plan

The current idea here is to use the ability of Alpha Legion to protect a big unit of Possessed with multiple -1 to hit, ability to not be targeted if they are not the closest visible, and some stacking power with some Daemon Friends.  All together the idea is to create a midfield holding army that can dish out a ton of damage to big stuff if they get near too.  Or just go all out with offensive abilities.

Right now I am fluctuating between Nurgle or Slaanesh as both have their merits.  I think the power of the Nurglings help out a ton more – but I might just go all Slaanesh as I still have those models painted and it would be fun to bring them out.

Alright enough jabbering – let’s show my initial list.  It’s 3 Battalions of fun and utilizes some of the new cool stuff CSM have right now with some Night Lords, cheaper Obliterators, and cheaper Possessed.

Tactics

The list has the ability to get a Hydra Claw on the extra Chaos Lord if I wanted too.  It has enough to double shoot, move possessed, and double assault with stuff as needed.  It seems all over the place but that makes it kind of interesting to play.  It also feels like a really random battle force army but since it is all about null deploying or setting up a unit that is extremely hard to shoot at – it becomes more interesting.

Will it work?  Who knows.  Will it be weird to play with – hell yes.
