Earlier this week I dropped a bomb on the group when I informed them I was restarting my Emperor's Children with a new colour scheme. In all honesty, I feel it was a brave decision as I have done quite a chunk and spent a lot of money. I do, however, feel I have made the right choice as I am massively happy with my test model.
I am going to do a more concise army list this time and 'trim the fat'. Bare in mind this is a Great Crusade era list.
Here is my new updated list (without HQs - which I plan on doing quite a few!):
9 Veteran Legionaire: Volkite Charger (1:5); Plasma gun (1:5); 4× Power Weapon; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (Power Weapon)
EC - Palatine Blade Squad: 4× Power Sword; Sonic Shriekers; Jump Packs; + 1 Palatine Prefector (Power Sword)
4 Phoenix Terminators: Sonic Shriekers
• Spartan Assault Tank: Armoured Ceramite; Flare shield; Pintle twin-linked Bolter
1 Legion Contemptor Deadnought: Twin-linked Autocannon; Twin-linked lascannon
9 Legionaire: Boltgun, Bolt Pistol, Chainsword, Combat Blade; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (power weapon; Artificier armour; frag grenades; krak grenades)
9 Assault Legionaire: Hand Flamer (1in5); Power Weapon (1in5); + 1 Legionaire Assault Sergeant (Power Weapon; Artificier Armour; frag grenades; krak grenades; Melta Bombs (sgt only))
9 Breacher Legionaire: Volkite Charger (1in5); Melta gun (1in5); + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (Melta Bombs (sgt only))
4 Support Legionaires: Volkite Charger; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant (Artificier armour; frag grenades; krak grenades)
4 Support Legionaires: Melta gun; + 1 Legionaire Sergeant
Legion Storm Eagle Assault Gunship: 2 Wing Twin-linked Lascannons
3 Javelin Attack Speeders: 2× twin-linked Lascannons; 3× Hunter Killer missile (2perLS)
3 Sky Hunter Legionaire: Jetbike Multi-melta (1in3); + 1 Sky Hunter Legionaire Sergeant
Legion Whirlwind Scorpius
4 Heavy Support Legionaire: 4× Lascannon; + 1 Space Marine Sergeant (Lascannon)
Legion Fire Raptor Gunship: Two turret mounted Reaper Autocannon Battery
Lord of War
Legion Falchion Super-Heavy Tank Destroyer: Armoured Ceramite; Pintle mounted Twin-linked Bolter; Space Marine Legion Crew
This is around 4,500 points in total and more than adequate for some cool battles! I was tempted to plonk in 3 Predators instead of the Scorpius, but I am not sure.
What do you think?
