They appear in the Space Marine codex as well.

WAAAAAARRRRRDDDDD also introduced an Alpha Legion Daemon Prince, Strikemaster Kernax Voldorius, who led a rather large warband.

The Bloodtide was, I believe, first mentioned in the 5th edition rulebook's timeline, then again in the Space Marine codex as something the Alpha Legion Strikemaster Kernax Voldorius released. I think Ward had a hand in the former, and certainly wrote the latter. Andy Hoare expanded on what the Bloodtide actually was (NANOBOTZ) in Hunt for Voldorius.

>I wish I could remember the source, but one group went so far as to sneak past an Imperial blockade by masquerading as Loyalist reinforcements to help the rebels.
Siege of Vraks I believe.

>Unknown to the commanders of 88th Siege army, Vraks had indeed become a draw to the Traitor Legions. One traitor in particular had heard news of the uprising, and the subsequent battles, and had now chosen to join the war. He was Lord Arkos, a former captain of the Alpha Legion. His battle barge Anarchy’s Heart, had crept into the Vraks system and landed his battle brothers at the star port. Disguised as newly deployed loyalist Space Marines they had infiltrated through the Krieg lines and, under the guise of launching an attack, crossed no-man’s land to reach the enemy side, before making for the Citadel. Arkos and his followers presented themselves at the Citadel, offering his support in the name of all the Chaos Gods. Arkos could not only provide the defenders with superb veteran troops, adept at raiding and disruption behind enemy lines, but also training for the militias. Arkos himself could add his own tactical experience to the defensive campaign. His brothers, all unflinchingly loyal to their commander and their gods, would relish the chance to join the war.

At least one thing is consistent: despite their millennia of experience and the gifts of the Dark Gods, Chaos Space Marines < Imperial Space Marines.

Even the less Chaos-crazy Legions have exceptions though. Two canon Alpha Legion examples are Arkos the Faithless (who wasn't really faithless at all) and the Strikemaster Kernax Voldorius, who was even a Daemon Prince.

That said, their portrayal as mindless pawns was stupid, and never really explained.

They got beaten in Codex: Space Marines (yes, yes, WAAAAARRRRD etc.), although the Alpha Legionnaires there were full Chaos. Other than that... I can't think of any other canon Alpha Legion defeats.

There are Alpha Legionnaires who genuinely worship Chaos. Arkos the Faithless, Strikemaster Kernax Voldorius etc.

It's entirely possible - almost certain even - that some Alpha Legionnaires will have strayed from their original mission and ended up embracing the powers they were fighting to destroy, especially with the defeat of Horus. That and official fluff has always contained depictions of Chaos-worshipping Alpha Legion, even post-Legion (pic related).

They did at least give him a lieutenant.

>except that the Alpha Legion is loyal to the Imperium
Was. There's no telling what the Legion is up to now. Besides, there doesn't seem to be any shortage of Alpha Legionnaires who actually serve Chaos.
