Ежели Гусары не смогут оправдаться, их капитул будет на сто процентов уничтожен. Решил испытать. Пишу в 1-ый раз, так-что строго не судите. Тут - текст, комменты - сюда. На призыв экзекутора Ортавия Мола спасти духовный центр субсектора откликнулась пролетавшая недалеко ударный крейсер II роты Крылатых Гусар. Командная задачка выполнена! Спасибо, Alan-de-Rok и Locke! Но срок подведения итогов ивента незначительно двигается из-за того, что одна диверсионная группа альфа-легионеров под прикрытием в это самое время проводит своею операцию и отчитается о ней чуток позднее, но в самое наиблежайшее время.
Так что ждем крайний гвоздь в гроб репутации капитула Крылатых Гусар, а потом уже представляем Гусар к "заслуженной награде", которая будет объявлена им Советом Терры по факту "их" подрывной деятельности в Империуме! Я незначительно опоздал, но хороший лорд и милостивые господа согласились подождать старенького генерала.

In theory anyway. Flail-wielding terminator with thunder hammer, Imperial Fists apothecary for a techmarine, guardsman for a sarge security officer , inquisitor for a librarian. Raven guard marines for common marines. Hmm no.. To fucking hard, no character development like leveling up to actually stand a chance, except when you come across a boss to loot them, but some of them are random as fuck which can be fun but very unfair. Now i can beat the first one which is always at the same spot but then a few dots away i encountered Ranko and he just 2 hits you and game over.
There are also way to many random encounters aswell which make this game hard and tedious. It would be nice if the normal encounters would drop loot like a medkit on a rare occasion. Or give exp to develope yourself. Look like a bug with "Draconocus" medal, because I have killed the techmarine and loot his flamethrower gun.

Utilising the superior drives of their vessels, and in an instant, the White Scars suddenly switched from an aimless drift-pattern into an arrowhead shock assault of astonishing precision.
Though both sides engaged one another, the White Scars made good their escape and fled the Chondax System, with the Alpha Legion strangely never making any real attempt to use their heavier Battleships to engage the White Scars and keep them pinned in the system. Following the debacle at Chondax, Alpharius ordered the remainder of his fleet to assault the Space Wolves Legion fleet at the Alaxxes Nebula.
The Alpha Legion and its twin primarchs, Alpharius Omegon, had long harboured a deep grudge against the Space Wolves, and Russ in particular, for his criticism of their reliance upon trickery, manipulation and subterfuge to win battles rather than engaging in what the Space Wolves primarch saw as honourable, open combat.
The Alpha Legion relished the chance to prove their superiority against the arrogant Wolves of Fenris by delaying them long enough to keep them from contributing to the Imperial defence of Terra. Russ sent a distress call to the nearby White Scars, requesting that his brother Primarch Jaghatai Khan send his forces in order to assist the VI th Legion against the traitorous Alpha Legion. Until he knew, beyond a shadow of doubt, who was ally and who was an enemy, he refused to choose sides.
Wishing his brother the best of luck, Jaghatai decided to seek his answers elsewhere. Reliable testimonies of the Shattered Legions ship Sisypheum , most importantly the accounts of the Raven Guard specialist Nykona Sharrowkyn , place at least one of the primarchs -- presumably Alpharius -- on a secret and hence unknown facility, designated as Lerna His deception was only revealed towards the end of this affair, after the surviving members of the Shattered Legion force escaped with the knowledge that Alpharius had indeed been masquerading as Meduson.
With its network of operatives and bondsmen and bondswomen, it is believed that even in the state of civil war that the Imperium had fallen into, the Alpha Legion had the means and opportunity to transfer materiel and personnel between sectors, including the Segmentum Solar and the strategically vital Sol System , whose defence had been entrusted to the Imperial Fists and their primarch, Rogal Dorn , the newly proclaimed Praetorian of Terra.
Alpha Legion units placed into enemy territory were trained and conditioned to pursue broad mission objectives in whatever way they thought best. The scope of these objectives were called mission parameters. An Alpha Legion force or warrior might have been given a series of potential mission parameters before its infiltration, some of which might be radically different in shape: killing or protecting the same individual, for example.
Each parameter would have a single activation word or phrase that would set an infiltrator off towards a set of objectives. A word spoken down a Vox channel or scrawled on a slip of parchment was enough to change the direction of their action from one parameter to another. And it was not uncommon for members of the same force to be following different mission parameters.
Two plinths had stood empty for a long time, the statues adorning them destroyed when their respective owners were cast to oblivion and their history erased -- the so-called Lost Primarchs , but the nine statues of those primarchs who had turned against the Emperor still remained, merely having been covered up. Infiltrated Legionaries succeeded into penetrating into the Investiary and destroyed all the statues except two of them -- those of Alpharius and Rogal Dorn.
Intended as both a challenge and a message, this feat was deliberately kept secret from the other organisations within the Imperial Palace, even the Regent of Terra, Malcador the Sigilite. By what means the Sigilite still discovered the presence of the Alpha Legion on Terra remains a mystery, but Rogal Dorn was adamant that he would deal with the treacherous XX th Legion in due course. What truly occurred there remains a well-guarded secret, one kept by Rogal Dorn himself and his Huscarls bodyguard.
He managed to successfully infiltrate the outer defences of the system by putting himself, and the entirety of the personnel within his fleet, into stasis. Meanwhile, the Alpha Legion fleet approached at minimum speed and powered down to bare minimum, in order to reduce their overall heat signature. Meanwhile Alpha Legion Sparatoi augmented and highly adept human agents as well as Alpha Legion covert operative teams were activated throughout the Sol System. These "sleeper" cells had been planted years earlier before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy, and upon activation, performed their primary functions of sowing destruction and undertaking diversionary terrorist acts, causing panic and anarchy on the Throneworld and throughout the system.
As the fleet arrived, further uprisings, instigated by Alpha Legion teams, erupted across the Sol System. Alpharius himself led a team of Alpha Legion warriors in the attack on the moon. Due to the unexpected and brutal assault, the severely outnumbered Loyalist fleet was badly mauled by Fire Ships hidden among the Alpha Legion fleet, to wreak havoc on the Imperial Fists defenders. The captured fortress moon of Kerberos rained down deadly fire upon Charon, Nix, and Styx with heavy fire.
Alpharius and Rogal Dorn confront one another, one last time, during the Battle of Pluto. During the fighting, Archamus led a Huscarl contingent in a daring assault upon the Alpha Legion force led by Primarch Alpharius himself. In the subsequent fighting, the Huscarls were killed and Archamus was left mortally wounded.
All seemed lost, as the battle seemed to swing in favour of the Traitor forces. They were boosted by additional reinforcements from the Armada Imperialis. Utilising the competing gravity wells throughout the Solar System, the Imperial Fists fleet managed to arrive quickly by slingshotting itself towards Pluto.
The Imperial Fists reinforcements immediately pacified the captured guns on Kerberos, as Rogal Dorn led his Huscarls in an assault upon the astropathic chamber on Hydra. Dorn and his remaining Huscarls teleported directly into the locked chamber, and soon joined battle against Alpharius and his elite Lernaean Terminators. Archamus looked on helplessly, as the two primarchs fought one another in an epic life-or-death duel.
With the death of their primarch, the Alpha Legion fleet withdrew and retreated from Pluto. Despite their contributions, however, Horus was ultimately defeated by the Emperor aboard his battle barge at the end of the Siege of the Imperial Palace on Terra. In the aftermath of the Horus Heresy , the Alpha Legion did not retreat to the Eye of Terror like the other Traitor Legions; instead the XX th Legion moved on into the galactic east, following new objectives of their own devising.
As such, the Legion was not pursued into the Eye of Terror as so many of their fellow Traitors were, but became embroiled in a series of bitter confrontations with the Ultramarines , who themselves had been engaged in that region when Horus had assaulted Terra. On the world of Eskrador , the Alpha Legion was assaulted by Ultramarines forces.
Alpharius was reportedly happy with such a development, as it allowed him to demonstrate the superiority of his flexible, multitudinous and unexpected military strategies over the notoriously precise, methodical and perhaps even tactically moribund Ultramarines.
For perhaps the only time in his life, Guiliman acted contrary to his own firmly-held military doctrines, and it was Alpharius who walked into a trap. Accounts vary as to why the Ultramarines and the Alpha Legion fought one another at Eskrador. A Traitor Marine of the Alpha Legion.
At first the battle was a stalemate between the two evenly matched Legions, but Guilliman chose nightfall to do something unexpected, leading a large portion of his forces with no lines of support or supply deep into the mountains where they deployed by Thunderhawk , Drop Pod , and teleporter in the midst of the Alpha Legion.
Hard-pressed by the vengeful Loyalist force, which outnumbered them five to one, the Alpha Legion was unable to fall back up the mountain valley. They were hampered by the terrain and were forced to make a last stand at the head of the valley. Alpharius himself led a furious counterattack against the Ultramarines and was slain in single combat by Roboute Guilliman. This final deception would present the Imperium with an unexpected and very nasty surprise time and time again.
The Alpha Legion responded not by breaking and fleeing as Guilliman had expected after the death of their primarch, but by turning on the pursuing Ultramarines detachment and harrying them so mercilessly that by the time they had returned to the main body of the Ultramarines force their casualties were almost total.
Some Imperial savants have claimed that the entire battle was some grand ploy unleashed by the Alpha Legion, though to what end none can say. Certainly, the Alpha Legion fought in the manner of the mythical beast that adorns their armour -- the hydra -- for each time one head was cut off, another two grew back to replace it. Small, autonomous warbands were left in Imperial space where they set up secret bases in asteroid fields, on Space Hulks and on barren, unpopulated worlds. These units launched frequent attacks against Imperial military targets that had already been weakened by the Heresy and even today these warbands still pose a threat to Imperial starships, settlements and garrisons.
The Unsung , an Alpha Legion warband active in the post-Heresy galaxy. These insurrections are often used to lure Imperial forces away from more strategic worlds the Alpha Legion proper wants to attack, paving the way for large-scale assaults of Chaos Space Marines from the Eye of Terror. Unlike the other Traitor Legions, most of the Alpha Legion does not reside in the Warp , but rather roams the galaxy as scattered warbands of warriors, each of which is trained to act independently of the others in pursuit of their greater cause.
In this way the Alpha Legion was by and large the only Traitor Legion not to succumb to the mutations of Chaos , an outcome that may also have been dictated by their continued secret loyalty to the Emperor of Mankind. The Alpha Legion has been declared exterminated by the High Lords of Terra no less than three times, in the 31 st Millennium, the 32 nd Millennium and the 39 th Millennium. These claims have always been disproved by the next Alpha Legion-inspired plot or rebellion that breaks out somewhere in the Imperium and proves that the hydra still has more heads to slay.
Alpha Legionaries during the Horus Heresy. When faced with the task of elucidating the inner workings and structure of the Alpha Legion, one is once again forced to deal head-on with paradox and contradiction, both by reports and the evidence left in the dust of slaughtered worlds where the XX th Legion wrecked its arts of war. Certain commonalities do however exist, particularly in accounts of how the XX th Legion fought, and to some extent trained its Aspirants for war. The first of these is the emphasis the Alpha Legion placed on unity of action and interaction within its ranks.
It was repeatedly reported that from their first hours as Aspirants, the would-be warriors of the Alpha Legion would train and fight together as units, rather than individual soldiers; the success of each one, and even their survival, depending on the success of the unit as a whole. A second commonality in observation of the Alpha Legion was its superlative expertise in the arts of espionage, sabotage, infiltration and assassination.
It is unclear whether the Alpha Legion ever conformed fully to the original operating strictures and organisational pattern laid out for the Space Marine Legions in the Principia Belicosa at the start of the Great Crusade, particularly as the Alpha Legion was formed long after the initial Founding of the other Legions.
Outwardly though, there was extensive resemblance to the basic Legion patterns, although the command structure and the organisation of the Alpha Legion can be discerned as being radically more fluid and specialised. To this end, unit numerations were swapped and heraldry changed and adapted, personnel and resources were reassigned or removed entirely from an order of battle, only to be later again replaced. Such organisational transits were noted not only between active deployments but also even during the coarse of a particular campaign.
It is entirely possible that all of these reports are equally valid. Whether surgical or memetic implantation techniques, proscribed cognitive manipulation or esoteric technologies were employed to these ends remains unknown, as does just to what extent the individual Legionaries undertook such measures voluntarily -- or perhaps were even aware of being subjected to them at all. At a strategic level the Alpha Legion was clearly at pains to maintain a wide spectrum of military assets and capacities, its dedication to flexibility ensuring it was as capable in armoured warfare as it was in surgical drop strikes, artillery fire support or close-quarter Zone Mortalis operations.
Later battlefield recovery and analysis of this so-called "Corvus-Alpha" armour shows it in fact to be a unique variant of the Mark VI suit likely developed separately from an early prototype of unknown manufacture. It has been surmised that long before the Horus Heresy was to tear the Imperium asunder, the Alpha Legion had sought to secure its own extensive facilities of manufacture and positioned numerous hidden supply outposts and arms caches, both within Imperial space and beyond it, the full extent of which will never be known.
These mysterious variant bolt shells, believed to have been designed in secret within the armouries of the Alpha Legion long before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy, had it seems a sole purpose; to breach the ceramite Power Armour of Space Marines. Used openly for the first time at the Drop Site Massacre on Istvaan V, their dense explosive cores and firing stresses reduced their range and swiftly degraded the firing weapon, but their effect against the betrayed Loyalist Astartes was devastating.
Fortunately for the Loyalists, supplies of these difficult to manufacture munition rounds were limited, and only the Alpha Legion and the Sons of Horus were able to field them in substantial numbers beyond that incident of brutal treachery. Exact figures for the martial strength of the Alpha Legion at the outset of the wars of the Horus Heresy are impossible to obtain.
Most contemporaneous accounts around the time of the Drop Site Massacre put the Alpha Legion at between , and , Legionaries strong, placing it within the middle tier of Space Marine Legion strengths. Some theorists have pointed the figure as far lower, somewhere in the 90, range based upon the largest concentration of Alpha Legion forces ever seen in operation in a single theatre. With hindsight and diligent corroboration however, evidence of multiple simultaneous battle-groups operating in far distant locales suggests a far higher figure than either of these estimates, well into the range of , Legionnaires which, if accurate, would make it one of the most formidable Legions in sheer size alone, a factor unguessed by both sides of the civil war that was to follow.
In terms of access to wargear and star-faring vessels, the Alpha Legion were formidably equipped. Again, true estimates are difficult to arrive at, but most pictorial and second party reports show the Alpha Legion as possessing extensive access to the most modern forms of Legiones Astartes equipment, not limited to Maximus and Tartaros Pattern Terminator Armour , the Sicaran Battle Tank and their sub-types as well as extensive stocks of plasma and Conversion Beam weaponry and specialised munitions unknown outside the Legion.
In terms of warships, the Alpha Legion was known to possess a very extensive and diverse fleet, although lacking in large numbers of heavy capital ships and planetary siegecraft in comparison to most other Legions. As the war of the Horus Heresy raged on, the XX th Legion demonstrated an enviable ability to replace its battlefield losses.
While the war continued and many Legions saw their strength shorn away, the Alpha Legion appeared to grow stronger throughout the conflict, despite several seemingly serious defeats. The Alpha Legion was well known for their use of subterfuge and the innate ability of its Astartes and other operatives to blend-in with any environment.
They also used more drastic measures, such as those employed during the Drop Site Massacre on Istvaan V during the opening days of the Horus Heresy. Reveling in their anonymity, the Astartes of the Alpha Legion always strove to look alike, modeling themselves on their Primarchs Alpharius and Omegon who sought to keep their separate identities secret. Prospective candidates for infiltration were selected for their possession of a variety of skills required for the successful completion of a mission, such as linguistic ability, a quick mind or an instinct for adaptation.
An infiltrator often did not know how many others were involved in a particular mission or whether or not they were successful in taking their assigned places; there could be a single operator or possibly dozens of operatives.
It did not matter, for a lone Alpha Legion infiltrator was trained to act alone and act accordingly -- remaining alive and undetected until such time as it was prudent to communicate with someone from their Legion. Infiltrators were always prepared to give their lives for their primarch and their Legion in order to successfully achieve the mission objectives assigned to them.
Living amongst those they were assigned to infiltrate, each day an operative learned a little more about their foe -- small mannerisms, turns of phrase, and protocols -- that enabled him to blend in better with his fellows, but it was not an entirely perfect process. Each operative would fulfill their purpose, take contentment from the knowledge of a mission accomplished and the praise of their twin-primarchs, and become one of the anonymous many of the Legion once again.
The Alpha Legion was also known to operate behind enemy lines and even mingle with enemy civilian populations. In such situations they were apparently able to pass unnoticed with a combination of appropriate dress and psyker mind-clouding. Certain records also indicate other named and specialised formations of the XX th Legion, such as the "Rhatoshaen", "Shayatan", "Quaryn" and "Echidna" whose nature, if they truly existed at all, remain mysterious.
Though not believed to have been present at the Council, Alpharius, at least outwardly, appears to have had his Legion abide by its ruling and disband their Librarius corps, a stance quickly ended during the war of the Heresy. Of importance also when considering the particular structure and capabilities of the Alpha Legion was its use of human and augmented-human agents and paramilitaries. Whereas many Space Marine Legion forces utilised the manifold elements of the Imperial forces to support their efforts in the Great Crusade, and many Expeditionary Fleets utilised regiments of the Imperialis Auxilia subservient to the Legiones Astartes in their order of battle, the Alpha Legion made particular use of detached mortal elements specifically trained for tasks of espionage, infiltration and terrorism, and these were beholden to none save the XX th Legion itself in fealty.
When encountering human worlds to be brought into Imperial Compliance , these augmented and highly adept agents referred to as Sparatoi , possibly from an ancient Terran term meaning the "sown men", in some sources , would go ahead of the Legion and infiltrate the population, acting as spies, agitators and saboteurs. Operating individually or as part of a cell network, these agents and operatives often had little knowledge of each other or in many cases of who their true masters were, but were uniformly highly trained, psycho-conditioned for ruthlessness and fanatical loyalty, and were often subjected to surgical, cybernetic or biochemical augmentation to further their abilities.
They would encourage treachery, spread disinformation and corrosive mimetic patterns, and find or take over underground rebel or terrorist groups. Their role primarily was to promote dissent and cause widespread panic and infrastructural damage, and so seek to critically weaken an enemy before the Legion itself emerged in battle.
When the Alpha Legion finally showed its hand, these elite agents and their web of prepper-agents would provide a wave of sabotage and destruction attacks, further destabilising the enemy, often at the cost of their own lives.
It is apparent that prior to the Horus Heresy, these mortal agent networks was expanded into the Imperium itself and its armed forces, becoming a cancerous presence that was only revealed as the great interstellar civil war erupted. The XX th Legion recruited many of these non-Astartes specialists in every theatre and campaign they entered, commonly members of the other Imperial armed forces, though almost any human could be approached by the Legion for his knowledge or skills.
These operatives often remained in their original position, ready to respond to Alpha Legion commands. Compromised operatives were not discarded if it could be avoided, and Alpha Legionaries would go to great lengths to retain them or hide their existence, lengths that included the fatal silencing of other Imperials.
As with so much concerning the Alpha Legion, precise definition of their command structure cannot be determined with certainty, but certain patterns can be deduced as -- if not constant -- then repeated enough to have been deemed important. The first of these is specialisation. In any given deployment, a chain of command was obeyed unquestioningly, but this chain of command was a fluid one, both conditioned and highly decentralised in its manner. While a force would be notionally under the command of an officer such as a Captain , the authority held by specialists in particular, such as Siege Masters or Vigilators, was deferred to as a matter of course and was regarded as absolute and not to be questioned in their area of expertise.
Likewise, each unit within the XX th Legion was expected to operate as a self-motivated and self-governing "cell" without need of exterior command, and expected to display initiative and pursue its part in the wider battle plan under its own cognisance and in any way it judged to be expedient.
Such was the emphasis on unity of action and initiative the Alpha Legion placed on its warriors that the battlefield co-ordination and responsiveness to changing circumstances that the Alpha Legion displayed was arguably superior to that of any other of the Legiones Astartes.
In terms of honourifics and titles, the Alpha Legion seemed to have used a shifting set of terminology to convey authority and role. At times the Alpha Legion appears to have deliberately aped the systems used by other Legions such as the Sons of Horus and the Blood Angels although whether this was done to incorporate a proven pattern of organisation as part of a particular strategy or as some form of mockery remains unknown.
Aside from these patterns, close scrutiny of the records reveals several distinctive additional divisions of command not shown by other Legions. One such unique title known to have been used by the Alpha Legion was that of " Harrowmaster " or Jhariuk as the leading commander given overall control of all Alpha Legion forces in a given war zone was known.
The position of Harrowmaster was known to be held as a supreme accolade by the Alpha Legion, and their infamous skill at battlefield control was highly regarded even as the Legion itself was often mistrusted by the commanders and strategists of the other Space Marine Legions. It is noteworthy that the Harrowmasters were among the few of the Legion, save its Equerries , whose personal names are left to the open record, although whether they have any basis in reality or are merely guises worn by a single warrior or perhaps a series of individuals remains unknowable.
Even less is known about the internal organisation of the Alpha Legion since the Horus Heresy than was known before. On occasions there have been successful assassinations of members of the Legion thought to be high-ranking officers, but their removal has had little visible effect on Alpha Legion operations. Alpharius Omegon believed in planning and co-ordination, and the twins always sought alternatives and multiple solutions to any given problem, with different elements working together for the end result.
These doctrines, thoroughly embraced by the Legion as a whole, have apparently been continued by the Traitor Legion warbands and have proven effective, especially in the disparate and secretive way they now operate. Not only is an enemy attacked from every angle, but every attack is often coordinated to achieve the most destructive results.
Many actions are planned to utilise and support local Chaos Cultist activity. These cults go to considerable effort to spread propaganda, perform sabotage, and carry out acts of unrest and rebellion, providing a distraction and weakening the enemy before the Alpha Legion strikes. Furthermore, the Legion has been known to ally themselves with anti-Imperial forces including other Traitor Legions and even xenos like the Drukhari.
On worlds far away from the Eye of Terror , daemons are less relied upon since they cannot remain stable for long enough in the physical universe to be useful. If the Alpha Legion succeeds in securing the belief of a local Chaos Cult the cultists are summoned to add to the variety of their attacks. The Primarch Alpharius was the last to be found by the Emperor , their relationship distant and formal even before Horus revealed his true colours. Those outside the XX Legion believed this was because the Emperor had already completed His galactic odyssey to reclaim the primarchs by the time the two met in person, and that His focus had shifted elsewhere.
Many of the Alpha Legion were uncannily similar in appearance and temperament, and their primarch used this fact to his advantage -- the claims that Alpharius was so efficient he could appear in two places at once had their basis in reality. Unusually for a primarch, Alpharius was not a giant by comparison to the battle-brothers that followed him.
He was able to assume the identities of his minions -- and vice versa -- whenever it would serve him to wrong-foot his enemies. Many was the warrior who claimed to be Alpharius to throw his foes off the scent; indeed, in some ways, every member of the Legion is an echo of his primogenitor in some manner. This grand misdirection is reflected across the XX Legion to this day.
Alpha Legion warlords are rarely where they appear to be; inside the armour of a famed leader may be a new recruit, whereas a Bolter -wielding line warrior may in truth be the mastermind behind a sector -wide conquest. In this way do the Alpha Legion echo their totem and embody their war cry "Hydra Dominatus," for their foes find it impossible to land a decapitating blow. At a tactical level, the Alpha Legion favoured freedom of manoeuvre and portability of firepower, and its battle tactics showed particular tendencies towards specialised reconnaissance and infiltration units in opening combat operations, to be quickly followed by the rapid deployment of fast armour, close air support and mechanised infantry units as a main strike force.
They would then bring about maximum pressure against the exposed vulnerability, deploying reserves of shock troops, heavy armour and artillery as expedient to deal a shattering death blow. In order to employ these tactics, the Alpha Legion was known to have developed a number of specialised formations and units, often equipped with otherwise unknown and esoteric weapons and wargear.
They were also known to form sub-divisions, referred to as "Splinters," which operated completely in isolation to achieve a particular mission or strategic goal, without regard to the safety or survival of either themselves or other members of their own force. The most experienced of the Alpha Legion are always specialists in the arts of the infiltrator and the thoughtsmith.
In practice, this doctrine manifests in a variety of ways depending on the size of the operation and locale of the battle zone. The Alpha Legion has been known to employ devious tactics such as flanking maneuvers, tunneling to bypass enemy defences, diversionary tactics, disguising troops and vehicles in enemy colours, air drops and teleportation behind enemy lines, infiltration, disabling enemy transport vehicles and routes, sabotage of essential supplies, ammunition, food, and fuel depots, as well as atmospheric and ecological tampering, triggering seismic and tectonic activity, coercion, bribery of enemy troops and officers and Imperial officials, disguising as and impersonating Imperial officers, enlisting enemy forces, distributing propaganda to incite civil unrest and outright rebellion, organizing anti-Imperial activity and supplying heretical groups and cultists, and allying themselves with corsairs, aliens and other Traitor Legions.
Many of these unscrupulous tactics are employed by the Legion after careful coordination, often resulting in an elaborate and enigmatic strategy that leaves their enemies confounded and confused. Through the use of these completely unorthodox tactics the Alpha Legion is able to deploy smaller and more mobile forces than is normally necessitated, for the Legion employs actual combat as only one part of their overall strategy.
It is unknown from where Alpha Legion names derive, though they often include a name taken from a physical feature, personality quirk, past deed, another defining feature of the Heretic Astartes in question or even a simple numerical designator.
However, these names may or may not represent the real designations of Alpha Legion Astartes , whose penchant for disguise and deception are well known. An Alpha Legion Chaos Space Marine is as likely to simply refer to himself as "Alpharius" as he is to use any other name. By having different elements working together in a cohesive and decisive force, the Legion is able to find alternative and multiple solutions to any given problem that may present itself.
This nefarious doctrine has been wholeheartedly embraced by the entirety of the Legion, having proved to be brutally effective for millennia. During the early days when the Space Marine Legions came into existence, they had set grueling tasks and trials for potential recruits. Prior to the outbreak of the Horus Heresy , the Alpha Legion was known to set these initiation trials for entire squads, not individual candidates.
They had to succeed as a group or not at all. If one failed, they all failed. Foolhardy or individual heroics were frowned upon, for the overall strategic plan is paramount and more valuable than any one Space Marine. It is not known if this practice is still carried out by the Legion. For the primarch put into place a directive that, as far as possible, all Alpha Legion Space Marines had to attempt to look alike; and the visage they patterned themselves on was that of Alpharius and Omegon.
As a result, all Alpha Legionaries were at the very least shaven-headed, with many going so far as to have cosmetic surgical alteration. Their height also made it easier for them to be confused with the primarch, although the twins were still the tallest in the Legion. When asked by non-Legion members, all Legionaries gave their names as "Alpharius," even when more than one was present.
This complete solidarity with each other expressed itself in other ways. This freedom was allowed not just on military matters -- the Alpha Legion internally discussed matters of philosophy and galactic policy that would have been forbidden or frowned upon in other Imperial institutions.
Later recruits for the XX th Legion were selected by the primarch primarily based on high intelligence and personal initiative. It is unknown if there was such a problem with their gene-seed prior to the Horus Heresy ; if so, it was kept concealed. It would not be surprising if the Legion did such a thing, due to their predilection for secrecy.
During one well-documented battle during the Gothic War known as the Lethe Ambush, Alpha Legionaries that were mutated were observed hiding their warped body parts, not out of any sense of shame, but as a form of subterfuge.
They would only reveal their mutations once they were upon their enemies, adding shock and revulsion to their horrified enemies. As the last Legion to effectively join the Great Crusade, the Alpha Legion fleet consisted of newly forged battleships and is believed to have numbered amongst the largest of all the fleets within the Legiones Astartes.
Its blasts are limited, so ritualistic offerings are needed after each use to replenish its deadly charge. The Alpha Legion wear many skins and don many guises in the prosecution of their covert agendas, but when the time to land the killing blow is nigh, they go to war in the colours of their Primarch Alpharius. Ostentation is rare, giving more of a sense of unity to their armies than is common in other Chaos Space Marine forces. The Alpha Legion, unlike many of the Traitor Legions, maintained the same basic colour scheme for their Power Armour -- azure blue, silver and green -- even after their fall to Chaos.
This was an outward testament to the fact the Alpha Legion has -- in spirit if not in body -- remained much the same since its creation. Alpha Legion Sergeants often had green helmets with a blue stripe down the centre. The typical livery of an Alpha Legionary is some combination of sea blue and emerald green.
This is sometimes worn in subtle contrast, half obscured by the dust of conquest; at other times it is polished to a violently clashing high sheen, the better to draw the eye of the enemy so that the greater work might pass unseen. The scaly cloaks worn by the operatives of the Alpha Legion are highly sought after -- should a Legionary fall, one of his brothers will take up the mantle in his place, donning it on behalf of the Legion itself.
It is the case that over the centuries-long conflict of the Great Crusade , all of the grey-clad Legions that first departed Terra changed their appearance to some degree -- some very dramatically so -- as the consequences of the long war and campaigning took their toll, and most tellingly when they were reunited with their primarchs. It is also the case that most uniformity or conformity of livery and appearance proved impossible, even for a Legion not as stratified and fractured as perhaps the Ultramarines or the Iron Warriors , given that an armed force such as a Space Marine Legion numbered in the tens of thousands and was very scattered across the vast distances of the interstellar void.
These facts, however, do not account for the wide variance displayed by the Alpha Legion, and instead it is likely that a more deliberate policy of misdirection and secrecy played its part. Variously and across multiple time periods, the Alpha Legion has been witnessed in liveries of pale grey, gleaming steel, veridian, dull bronze, sable, indigo, amaranth and azure blue -- both in main and combination.
It has been variously recorded as displaying Principia Belicosa standardised rank and unit signifiers, elaborate stylised reptilian iconography of unknown meaning, and the complex logos-teknika forms favoured by the Emperor-shattered Panpacific Empire on Ancient Terra before Unification. It has also gone into battle without emblems or markings of any kind; a faceless, anonymous army of killers without distinction or division in its ranks.
If any deeper meaning is held by these changes and masquerades beyond their use to confuse the enemy and confound those who would study the XX th Legion and know its ways, one of the most outlandish and disturbing explanations is that not even the Alpha Legion itself knew its true shape and forms. This theory, postulated since the Horus Heresy, contends that only Alpharius knew the main extant of his Legion and its domain, its strength and its reach, and perhaps then even he knew it only imperfectly.
By this token the Alpha Legion had become unknowable, a self-sustaining, self-replicating force, a weapon that had transcended the flesh of the Legionaries that made it up and the hand that wielded it. It would be a force whose limits and extent would forever be unknown, even unto itself, and therefore ultimately unstoppable as no enemy or influence could ever hope to fully infiltrate or overcome it from within.
Entire Expeditionary Fleets could have operated never knowing the existence of mirror images of themselves, each believing that they were the only Alpha Legion bearing the name. The implications of such a colossal deceit are staggering if true. Many icons utilised by the Alpha Legion at this time appeared to be drawn from the same ancient script.
Often this icon could be seen surmounting the older, chained alpha-omega icon. Both were common symbols within the Alpha Legion, with numerous combinations and variants adorning armour, banners and the flanks of armoured vehicles. The name Alpharius Omegon is drawn from "Alpha" and "Omega", the first and last letters of the Ancient Greek alphabet, which also represents the "Beginning" and the "End" in Greek mythology and Christian iconography.
