Does anyone here actually play the Black Legion?

I mean as the version of the chaos ultramarines does anyone play them? I'm doing a new undived army and I want to see if anyone plays Abby's boys.

Me... I like the Black Legion, mainly before like Ultramarines they did not need special rules to be a good army to collect.

I play Lupercal's legion. They are my first army and one of the ones I enjoy most, People generally mistake them for Evil Ultra Marines, however they don't realize the awesome fluff the black legion has access too, and the awesome characters you can build around it. Think of it, you can use recent things like the mournival, Tactics that focus on aggressive difficult to stop assaults, backed by Deepstriking troops, demons for fodder, Awesome possessed and the most Bad ass special character ever. I played mine not 2 hours ago, a full infantry force with no vehicles. Anything goes.

Keep at it DarkSoldier - word of advise from One Commander to another - Try and excure your plans fluff wise, I know it sounds odd, but oddly enough I find If i play my black legion force like the fluff, it tends to win big. (or lose in a spectacularly awesome way that makes for excellent games).

Good luck !

Meh, won't play an army led by a guy who can't breach one world in thirteen crusades over ten thousand years. :p Just kidding, know he made it further than that, but GW didn't say so, did they? ;)

Well he was very successful in the Gothic War

the Legion are good in the fact they can access everything in the book without having to justify it via the background.
