As a reluctant fan of the Legion and its lore, I've always thought it's a real pity the Alpha Legion didn't feature more in Conquest. They could have had a nice ambush-like event, or their Infiltrator could have had a cool ability (vis-a-vis Klaivex' ability, or Deep Strike) but it is what it is I guess.

If nothing else they would have made for prime material for poems - secretive, misleading, and opaque :)

 

Nine-fifty

 

At nine-fifty

Light lives not

Penetrates not

Here, all is shifty

As its masters' plot

 

      In darkness, it's walled

      With danger, it's born

      With anger, it lives

      With rigour, it's run

      With knowledge, it dies

      And darkness it's called

 

                              At nine-fifty

                              Light lived not;

                              Punished for its rot

                              Here, cruelty shone dark

                              All lights perished here ablaze
