Heresy Edition

For the Heresy Edition of a Tale of X Gamers here is your template for a Legion Tactical Squad.

9 Legion Tactical Marines + 1 Legion Tactical Sergeant (Power Armour, Bolter, Bolt Pistol, Frag & Krak Grenades)

  • Add up to 10 additional LTM
  • Exchange Bolter for Combat Blade or Chainsword - All
  • Take additional Combat Blade or Chainsword
  • One Marine can take Nunico-Vox (like Teleport Homer)
  • One Marine can carry Vexilla (allows re-roll of failed Morale Tests)
The Sergeant may exchange Bolter for one of the following:
  • Combi-weapon
  • Plasma Pistol
  • Heavy Chainsword
  • Power Weapon
  • Power Fist
  • Single Lightning Claw
He may also take Melta Bombs and uprade to Artificer Armour.

If no more than 10 models the Squad can have a Rhino as a Dedicated Transport. Characters with special rules unlock other Dedicated Transport options.

So to participate you need to build a unit of 10-20 Legion Tactical Marines before the end of January 2013.

This first unit is very vanilla but makes participation easy.


  1. So far

    Charlie - Sons of Horus
    Jack - World Eaters
    Glen - Raven Guard
    Me - death Guard
    Minitrol - Night Lords

  2. Looking a little lonely on the loyalist side. I may look into a Legion over the week and have a think. Sounds like a nice little project to keep going.

    1. Yeah I was tempted by Dark Angels but I have wanted Night Lords since I was 12 so you know...

  3. I'm not sure I can afford this right now, nor have the time, but have they done any HH books around the White Scars, Pete?

    Reading some fluff might tip me over the edge...

  4. James, you have 2 perfectly functioning Kidneys, and only have need for 1. There is a perfectly willing black market out there that can address all your needs.

  5. There are a couple of novella dealing with them....I'll look them out for you.

  6. I'd hardly say they're "perfectly" functioning anymore... Sadly though I don't know the right people to sort out a sale.

    Cheers Pete, that'd be good. Failing that though, I'll continue reading my novels about Genghis Khan. Horses, bikes, close enough!

  7. I have been thinking of getting back into 40k, in fantasy I have had a pretty wide selection of armies, started with the original Chaos Dwarfs, Orc & Goblin & Lizardman were the main one but dabbled in Bretonians and a few others.

    Just Skaven here in NZ but my only 40K army was Dark Angels. Including my small Epic 40K force.

    Been seriously considering going back to the Dark Angels and I've been loving the Heresy books but I think the general lack of time at the minute with work will probably make this a non starter at the minute :(

  8. What if your Legion doesn't use such boring stuff as infantry tactical marines?

    Can I just make like 5 White Scars Jetbikers instead?

    1. Pretty sure the White Scars used at least one Tactical Squad James......what else will you put in the Watchtower?
