I've done some reading on these little buggers and wanted to confirm I'm right on with this assessment:

1.) When Legion Devils are drawn, all three models are placed on the tile with one on the scorch mark (if available) and the others anywhere on the tile at the player's choice
2.) When they activate, they each attack and each roll with a +11 or move one tile
3.) If another Legion Devil's card is drawn, after punching that active player in the face, you add any off board Legion Devil Monster figures to that tile, or, if none are available as all three are on the board still, the active player just cleans up his punched in nose and keeps the card.
4.) As such, and trying not to get blood from his punched in nose on his copy of Legion Devils, said second player to have drawn them activates the original 3 models when his Legion Devils card activates on his Villain phase

Sound about right?

All correct. Just on number 1, we've been playing by placing devils adjacen among them, not just anywhere on the tile.

Correct. And punching players in the face was part of the devil's design intentions.

We also clumped them adjacent to one another, but looking at RAW the OP seems correct in doing it his way. Never even thought about it before.

yes but lets say you bought extra legion devil miniatures..
the card doesnt say anything about (If possible) place two more legion devils. doesnt this mean that you are supposed to place 3 more legion devils regaurdless of if you have the miniatures or not?

They certainly are, but if you are keen to preserve theme, the Legion Devils should really be referred to as little sodomites.

One more question regarding Legion Devils.
Actually, a couple, now that I start thinking about it.

I think I know the answers to these, but doesn't hurt to ask. Right?

OK. So the first guy draws Legion Devils for the first time.
Place them as described above. Activate all three.

Second guy comes along, kills one of them.
Q1. He gets a treasure, right? I mean, you don't get xp til you kill all three, but it still counts as killing a monster, yes?

Now. Two are left.
Player 3, somewhere else on the board, draws a new legion devil card.
Gets punched in the nose, as described above.
Places one legion devil on his new tile, away from the first two.
(Activates all three.)

Player 1 kills one (+1 treasure), and activates the remaining two.
Player 2 kills one (+1 treasure)
Player 3 kills one and collects BOTH CARDS for 6 xp. Oh, +1 treasure.

Question 2 was "Does player 3 collect 6 xp in one go?"
It seems he would get both cards in the same instance.

Just don't even go there.
Could you *imagine* activating 6 devils twice per round?

Yes to both questions. But just remember that the xp is a party resource, so it does not matter which hero collects it.

That's how we play it, exactly as you described.

Yes, in the unfortunate event that you draw a second Legion Devils card and have to punch your friend in the face, you at least get all 6 XP when they are all dead.

We marked the bottom of one with a black felt pen. This is the "real" Legion Devil the other 2 are just mirror images. All 3 fight but if you attack one and kill it, if it was the real one they all disapear and you get the xp on the card and draw a treasure, and you don't get xp or items for the mirror devils even if you killed them first.

It makes the game fun in a small way, and anything that can make this game a little more interesting is a good thing.
