I kidna see where you are going to...Im starting to like the idea of chaos orks..but not really in the worshipping aspect..maybe the warlord wants to be worshipped as a god...but not that they will go out and kill in the name of the chaos gods
Please, let's drop the discussion of Chaos Orks from this thread, since it's not directly related to the Chaos Wars and doesn't belong in the Meta-concept forum since it hardly has a huge impact on the sector.
If people wish to continue this discussion, I invite you to the Ork forum, where you are most welcome
PS: Yes, I know I started it, but let's not talk about that... ;D
I know I am new here, but I would like to include my ideas on this topic.
Going back to CELS’ original idea about the Alpha Legion’s inter-sector war (at last), I would see the chaos cultists as the main troops in this war. The way I see it would be that the Alpha Legion would spend years sowing discontent and seeds of disruption amongst the worlds of the Anargo, and then at a specific moment several if not most worlds would erupt in rebellion.
This has already been pretty much taken for granted, however I think that the Alpha Legion would then make small raids to assassinate loyalist leaders etc. perhaps making use of mercenaries to make up their numbers, or use the rebellion as a distraction so that they could carryout some plan of their own, abandoning the cultists that they created. I do not really see the small numbers of AL in the sector wanting to get involved in large battles. They would leave this to the masses of cultists.
I am not sure how the war could come to a conclusion, but I have a few ideas. The Alpha Legion could succeed in what they wanted to do, perhaps setting the scene for a future, bigger rebellion, and then let the cultists to be slowly overcome as they make good their escape. The AL could be drawn into a battle with numerically superior Frost Wraiths or communications from the AL get intercepted and deleted, allowing some of the worlds to be untouched by rebellion and acting as staging posts for counter-attacks.
As for some of the other points. I would be wary of setting this during the Age of Apostacy, because this could limit the size of the Chaos war and some of the directions that it could go. Also having it on its own could also help to flesh out some more of the timeline.
Orks taking over abandoned Iron Warrior Keeps? Nothing wrong with this in theory, but the IW set up keeps on worlds that they had liberated or helped to liberate. This would mean that they would have to have been in the Anargo sector during the Grand Crusade, as well as the Alpha Legion. Good idea in theory, but it might take a little more work to fit into the Anargo sector. Sorry Femerenden.

This is where you are partly wrong, the Emperor eventually split the Iron Warriors legion up in small groups to guard Imperial Worlds, to build defenses there, so it is very possible for a small group of Iron Warriors to have taken care of the defenses of this world in the Anargo Sector. Pertubalo (sp?) was very offended by the fact that the Emperor had split up his legion, which was probably one of the reasons why he joined Horus during the Heresy.
After the Heresy the Iron Warriors might have left their fortress, they might have left it during the Heresy to go to Terra, and maybe they left some sort of mechanism there? What about that after the Heresy the Iron Warriors died there after having killed many Loyalists and perhaps their "ghosts" or "souls" or whatever you could call it has corrupted the fortress world, or perhaps some Sorcerer tried to cast some spell on it, making the whole fortress sort of "alive" or "possessed"
