Thousands sons all the way, you just cant say that entombed spirits fighting in suits of power armour isnt cool.

 #2 - Posted by: trooper_xp (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 11:19

iron wariors look the coolest, and more original and individual then any other legion

 #3 - Posted by: Lanf (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 11:27

Err... Astral claws? Because err... it has the best name?

 #4 - Posted by: badmtf41 (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 11:29

Thousand son,s been playing them for some time on TT, still miss the last ed of the chaos dex. Good times :D

 #5 - Posted by: Abbadon_the_Despoiler (Staff) on 09-20-2008 at 11:39

In case you didn't know - Astral Claws are also known as the Red Corsairs.

 #6 - Posted by: shasostick (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 11:59

i like night lords, thousand sons, and iron warriors, but i put thousand sons

 #7 - Posted by: Alpha001 (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 13:15

i like the alpha legion, the whole deciding to turn against the human race to protect them from eternal damnation seems kinda fun and almost noble o.O

 #8 - sigh.. - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 14:22

why has no one mentioned this yet...... THE ASTRAL CLAWS ARE NOT A LEGION, THEY ARE A RENEGADE CHAPTER

 #9 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 14:23

and, despite my name, the Night Lords are the most kickass of all Legions

 #10 - Posted by: Hadda (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 15:28

Thousands Sons, they are totally the most badass of the bunch :D

 #11 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 15:58

Omg yay my poll was taken into consideration :D <3 Night Lords all the way! AVE DOMINUS NOX!

 #12 - Posted by: spacewolf25 (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 16:15

all hail the superiour tactics of alpha legion

 #13 - Posted by: PSIN (Member) on 09-20-2008 at 21:49

Iron Warriors FTW. Night lord a close second. Sons of malice if it was a chapter. How did 1000 sons get to be #1? The'yre just empty suits or armour and a few snooty guys in MK5 bird armour. Lame.

 #14 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 01:58

how can people be voting 'Other'? There are no other Legions. In fact, there are -1 other Legions because the astral claws are already in the poll.

 #15 - Black legion = CSM united - Posted by: IETS567 (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 04:13

Black legion has everything the CSM has to offer. I like the CSM as a whole not a particular legion and thats exactly what the Black legion reflects. On 2nd place would be the night lords, their brutality is enough to convince me :P .

 #16 - Posted by: Abbadon_the_Despoiler (Staff) on 09-21-2008 at 04:25

why has no one mentioned this yet......


Congratulations, you found the trick question! (Yes...it was actually a trick question) :D

 #17 - WTF :O - Posted by: Sekmet9 (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 05:26

omfg as if soo many peeps like thousand sons, they have been my only army for a decade now, i thought world eaters would win no probs, i mean on TT they are the least used chaos army and get the least amount of models made for them,

 #18 - Tzeentch ftw - Posted by: The_Maticore (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 08:40

how can you not like the army serving the power that changes men into unrecognisable lumps of thing?

 #19 - Serious question to DoW-Files staff: - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 09:04

When DoW2 is released (or when it's filefront site is set up, whichever), will it get it's own page, or will it be a part of DoW-Files (like the origional and expansion packs)? If it's still being considered, maybe the issue could be put to the DoW-Files members in the next poll?

 #20 - Posted by: pri (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 09:08

thousand sons is best and the strongest and the horrorest :D

 #21 - Posted by: Abbadon_the_Despoiler (Staff) on 09-21-2008 at 11:34

I think it will be part of this site, considering the sequels of other games link to the same page, such as Half Life and such. Also; it's listed to the side of this window, <---- Look that way and you should see a 'coming soon'

 #22 - Posted by: Corbec_UST (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 11:50

I personally like Khorne, the whole blood for the blood god thing and charging stupidly into massive fire makes me laugh, that and I will take brute force and strength over Magic anyday. So I have to say World Eaters because they are the only group that is completely for Khorne. That and i find the idea of a loyalist chapter named the world eaters funny (pre-heresy) Civilian "Thank the emperor, the World Eaters are here to save us from the Orks"

 #23 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 12:17

"(pre-heresy) Civilian "Thank the emperor, the World Eaters are here to save us from the Orks"" You took that from that topic on Rogue Trader/Star Destroyer forums. While the World Eaters and Khorne are the most appealing to newcomers to the 40K universe (god of bloodshed vs gods of decay, hope and emotion, is a no brainer), you eventually get bored of them. It surprises me that so few people are voting for the Night Lords, if you read any of their lore (try Lexicanum or Wikipedia), you'll understand just how badass they and Konrad Curze are.

 #24 - Posted by: Saekhor (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 12:37

Astral Claws are NOT a Legion...they are a Chapter. And yeah...NIGHT LORDS FTW!

 #25 - Posted by: Templar_Crusader (Member) on 09-21-2008 at 12:59

I don't play chaos, but I always wanted to start a word bearers army. I can't even remember why.

 #26 - #23 - Posted by: Corbec_UST (Member) on 09-22-2008 at 09:36

Nope, I was talking to a guy on facebook in a Warhammer 40k group and he posted something about a chaos lord making that mistake. I found it funny because when i found out they use to be loyalist I actually said that to myself. HE May have gotten it from that forum, i dont know, I dont even know what that forum is, never heard of it.

 #27 - Posted by: jamunition (Member) on 09-22-2008 at 09:44

red crosshairs all the way!!!

 #28 - IRON WARIORS - Posted by: trooper_xp (Member) on 09-22-2008 at 13:02

iron warriors are the most coolest, looking, also they specialize in armor(plz correct me if im wrong), and nothing can stand a predator tank rush, except the leman russes

 #29 - Iron Warriors - Posted by: Araqiel (Member) on 09-22-2008 at 13:41

Yeah those're more Siege-based than armour... Rather than a predator rush they get a bunch of artillery tanks the other legions don't. And more Obliterators. Anyway I prefer the Red'n'white colors of the Word Bearers, but I voted for Thousand Sons because their backstory appeals to me more...

 #30 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 09-22-2008 at 21:33

When did the Thousand Sons get so popular?

 #31 - To #30 - Posted by: The_Maticore (Member) on 09-23-2008 at 04:08

since forever =D

 #32 - what does canon mean? - Posted by: extiusmaster (Member) on 09-23-2008 at 07:20

hey guys, does canon mean the starting? if so word bearers all the way :D

 #33 - #30 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 09-23-2008 at 07:59

If I had to guess, I'd say it was when I started using their name. That seems like the most logical answer to me :D

 #34 - Posted by: Miguddon (Member) on 09-24-2008 at 05:05


 #35 - Posted by: Cpl_Death (Member) on 09-25-2008 at 16:45

I was hoping that either the Alpha Legion or the Night Lords won. :/

 #36 - To #32: - Posted by: Neverhoodian (Member) on 09-26-2008 at 09:14

Canon is a term that describes the authenticity of something. If the item in question is officially regarded as true, then it is canon. This term is used most frequently when either talking about religion or fictional series like Star Wars and Warhammer. Establishing the canon helps keep everyone on the same page, so to speak, on what's officially accepted as "fact." For example, let's look at the final duel of the Horus Heresy. The official account is that the Emperor killed Horus, but not before suffering a mortal wound himself. In order to save the Emperor's life, he was placed upon the Golden Throne, where he has been essentially on life support for ten thousand years. This is the "official" account as described by Games Workshop; therefore, this is the "canonical" version. Now let's say someone wanted to do a "what if" scenario of that final duel. In this altered account, Horus survives and kills the Emperor outright. While it may be fun to speculate on this, at the end of the day it is merely that; speculation. Since this account runs contrary to the official version, this would not be accepted as the "true" story, rendering it "non-canonical".
