PostSubject: Legio Throwdown: Sons of Horus   Mon Jan 07, 2013 5:18 pm

Hey folks,

Since we've gotten so much participation from the Wargamers Malaysia forum users, I thought I'd go ahead and chronicle my Sons of Horus progress here (as well as on my blog).

No painted pics yet, but my first squad is well on its way. I just finished converting my first Tactical Squad's Sergeant tonight, sans the Sons of Horus shoulder pad I'm waiting on to be delivered this week (fingers crossed!)



Sorry for the small pic- it was taken in haste on my phone. Much, much more to come!

Looks good. But one model is never enough, I wanna see more of them Smile
All these 30k models are making me envy hahaha.

What is the list going to look like?

Basically, it's the following:

HQ

Garviel Loken OR Abbadon, depending on whether the campaign needs me to be Loyalist or Traitor

ELITES

Contemptor Dreadnought with Plasma Blaster and Multi Melta

TROOPS

Legion Tactical Squad x10, Sgt Power Weapon, Melta Bombs + Rhino

Legion Tactical Squad x10, Sgt Power Weapon, Melta Bombs + Rhino

Legion Tactical Support Squad x9, Sgt Plasma Pistol, Power Weapon, Melta Bombs, 8x Volkite Calivers

FAST ATTACK

Jetbike Squad x5, Plasma Cannon, Sergeant, Sergeant Power Fist

HEAVY SUPPORT

Legion Mk IIB Land Raider

LORD OF WAR

Baneblade

Still doing minor tweaks to the list, but this is the overall plan...

I like it. It has the feel of my 40k list and a some FW stuffs that other didn't include in their list Smile

So Tacticals really is just bolters in 30k
What is the Volkite Calivers? I wonder why it didn't survive till 40k.

Volkite is rare, barely understood tech that's completely gone in the 40K universe. In game it's Heavy 2, S 6, AP 5 (Deflagrate- causes extra hits/wounds after damage is resolved)

Thanks

there is a charger version which is assault... i suspect the tech was too hard to maintain that it fell out of use.... even during the horus heresy it was used in small numbers.

Finished the first one as a test scheme



The actual base will be a little different, and I'll be using Sons of Horus shoulder pads from FW once they show up. The green is right on the money IMO, so this is pretty much what they are all going to look like methinks...

Just updated my list with the final version. The Legions list allows me to take a Lord of War at 2000 points, and I'd LOVE to do some minor conversions and paint up my Baneblade in Sons of Horus livery.

I believe this is my final list- going to be loads of fun to paint and to play!

Got my first squad's sergeant done tonight Smile









The base is a new thing for me- it's cork sheet with a layer of baked Sculpey on top. I extruded the putty through a pasta machine with a silicone sheet that has a tile pattern on it. After baking the putty has a similar feel to soft plasticard- it keeps its shape well but can easily be cut and ripped up without shattering. The theme for my basing is the shattered ruins of the Precentor's Palace on Istvaan III.

Fast progress is going to be very difficult, but I'm going to keep at it!

I didn't buy a copy per se, but my boss in NZ is giving me one as a gift. Should be here soon.
