Yeah, they are pretty great rules. They drip with character, are effective, and are unique. Perfect blend of rule-making.

Looking forward to rules for Alpha Legion. I will be happy to use my 30k army for 40k games.

Those nightlord rules are pretty crazy, potentially (from what they have said) a -5 to your leadership (legion trait plus stratagems plus warlord trait). Imagine if you had an elite unit of something like centurions, LD7/8(with serg) becomes LD2/3. You lose one model during the turn and then for morale you are losing a second centurion on a 3+ (2+ without the serg) and both on a 3+/4+. Hordes will suffer but I think it is elite units that will struggle against nightlords.

 

I love it though, to me that is an almost perfect way of doing it. You are only going to get the -5 with your warlord/command points but even a potential -3 is still worrying.

Yeah. The downside is most forces have ways to mitigate morale. Commisars/ synapse or just taking single models.
Also, anyone can auto pass morale with CP. But night lords can really pile of the pressure and CP should evaporate pretty quickly.

True, but you can only burn one CP per phase so at most they can auto pass a single morale check. If you take 3+ models off 3-4 units suddenly they have to make some strategic choices as to which unit to autopass.

Alpha Legion warlord trait  
When your warlord dies you can select a new character to become your warlord. Opponent cannot get slay the warlord as long as you have characters alive to assign

 

oh and Black legion. Sigh. Decent but some of thier stuff is just Ultramarine copy paste but made worse.

I'm a fan of the black legion trait to be honest, I think it's solid.
