Oh and welcome to the Serpents Lair.

its meant to be a blue/black.

This was a confusing part of the book (go figure). All I remember is that it said "almost black".

The problem is that it doesn't specify any other color. Maybe it looks like this:

Black with green could look pretty cool.

Their Pre-Heresy color was a bluish-purple, so black with a little dark purple could look pretty good too.

I might have to try some of these out, see if I can make a sweet looking Stealth Squad.

Hi. Welcome to the forum. But you may be best starting a new post....

Is this the pre heresy card game your looking for cards for? or artwork?

In either case i cant help, but someone may be able to.

Soooo, I've been wanting to do something pre-Heresy for a while. I'm an Alpha and an Iron Hands player; the Hands are the same paint scheme as the modern day, so I finally decided to go for Alphas instead.

So now my issue is picking out which Codex to use. Right now, I'm bouncing between C:CSM and C:SM. The Chaos codex gives me access to era-specific weaponry and squad loadouts, like the Reaper autocannon and power armored Infiltrators in the form of Chosen (obviously, I'd avoid the Chaosy stuff). C:SM gives me ATSKNF, Combat Tactics, and Chapter Tactics -- specifically Khan, Shrike, and Sicarius, all of whom provide some sort of boon that Alpha Legionizes the army in some small way.

As it stands, I'm leaning towards C:CSM. As the subject matter experts, do you guys have any input?

There's always contention between Alpha Legion players about the C:SM/C:CSM debate; everyone has their own opinion on this issue, even before the added factor of pre-heresey comes into it.

My personal opinion would probably be C:CSM for the equipment and organisation reasons you pointed out. Although, if you're espousing the 'chaosy' elements from an already slimmed down list, you're going to have a bit of an uphill struggle competatively.

There are some thing I'm willing to use despite being Chaosy because they make a certain amount of sense theme-wise and are easy to counts-as. Chaos Glory Icons, for instance; they are both teleport homers and representative of training that the Legionnaires have undergone never to surrender or to stick to the plan.

But I also really, really want to use Khan. Its an issue.

Comm-links really fit with what the icons do, receiving new orders(re-roll morale), connecting to teleportation software(no scatter)...

Visually representing them is easy as well, here is an example:
