Primarch Horus

I have gone with some fast and heavy hitting options as well as only 2 Heavy Support and a Master of Signal, so that I can use the Rite of War. I have also tried to do roughly as many tactical marines as the total infantry in the rest of the army - this is due to fluff which can be found in the HH: Betrayal book. I can really imagine this list standing beside the Emperor on Ullanor.



Let me know what you think below. I am aiming for it to be as fluffy as possible - I don't care how competitive it is at all.

  1. I don't think centurions can take digi lasers but other than that it looks great.

    1. Damn it. That's me and Quartermaster. Sorry Khall it's true.

  2. And how does a Scorpius fit with the fast moving sons of horus speartip fluff?

    1. It's a bit of a mobile firebase, I would rather have gone for a Sicaran but unfortunately I don't think they would have been prevalent in the LW colours.

    2. What would you suggest instead? :)

    3. A Deredeo inside a dreadnought drop pod is about the same price I think.

  3. Slight problem with your list. The Master of signal is now a support Consul and can't be a compulsory HQ choice. FW changed that with the last FAQ. I run into the same problem when Angron(Lord of War) leads the World Eaters to battle. Now I added a praetor with a Boarding Shield and Thunder Hammer.

    1. I think it is a SOH rite of war or Legion trait which requires a Master of Signal. I was happy when they were put into a Support Consul class, wasn't happy seeing them everywhere I went lol.

    2. It is a support class. He has to be used alongside another HQ. We have house ruled the Primarch's as HQs as they are comparatively powered to Avatars or Greater Daemons.

  4. Aren't the outriders plasma gun upgrades an entire squad option? Meaning all or none?

      FLUFF for the win! Projects like this are done for the love of character and background. I to my hat to you sir!
      Can't wait to see them painted!

    2. oooh. That's my Bad. I created the Quartermaster template and forgot to force it as "for whole squad". Sorry Khall.

      Delete
    3. I don't read it as they all have to. It's an option for each. If a squad all takes jump packs it says 'Squad may take jump packs at +xxpts per squad' saying each, as in the outrider listing, to me suggests it is an option. I will clarify with FW :)

    4. From FW:

      Thank you for your email. It means you can upgrade any number of the of the squad to take the weapon chosen at the individual points cost for each one upgraded. You do not have to upgrade all of them
