So I am also the Bunny who is aiming to do the VIII Legion Astartes.
This Legion has my favourite Traitor Primarch and also my favourite Horus Heresy Character; Sevatar.
Mat Kane described him as Blackadder in space to me once, and since then I can't lose that image lol.
But yes. These evil and cruel Legionaires in midnight-clad are very cool.
Hopefully I can give this Legion some love in 2017 in the form of one of our "Legions in a day".
So this is the meat of the Legion I want to do:
19 Tactical Space Marines: chainswords; legion vexilla; + 1 Tactical Sergeant (artificer armour; power fist; melta bombs) 305
19 Tactical Space Marines: chainswords; legion vexilla; + 1 Tactical Sergeant (artificer armour; lightning claw; melta bombs) 305
19 Assault Space Marines: 4× power weapon; + 1 Assault Sergeant (artificer armour; bolt pistol; pair of lightning claws; melta bombs) 380
4 Tactical Support Marines: + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant (melta bombs) 105
4 Tactical Support Marines: plasma guns; + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant (artificer armour) 185
4 Tactical Support Marines: meltaguns; + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant 175
4 Tactical Support Marines: volkite chargers; + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant 100
4 Terminators: Terminator armour (Tartaros); combi-bolter; 2× combi-weapon; reaper autocannon; + 1 Terminator Sergeant (volkite charger; Nostraman chainglaive; grenade harness) 221
4 Terminators: Terminator armour (Tartaros); combi-weapon; chainfist; thunder hammer; heavy flamer; 2× pair of lightning claws; + 1 Terminator Sergeant (combi-bolter; power weapon; pair of lightning claws; grenade harness) 267
Konrad Curze 435
This will form a decent core which I can add many many many Vehicles, skimmers and Legion Specific units to.
I do want to be able to use the Tactical Legionaires as Terror Squads too, so I need to make them extra gruesome.
1) In the stories there are mentions of some Nostramans looping scenes of their favourite tortures on projectors on their armour plates. I am thinking of finding some gruesome scenes from horror movies and printing in high definition as transfers for the occasional shin or shoulder pad.
2) I do want this to be a fast paced squad member heavy force (to show them as bullies), so hopefully a fair few fliers, skimmers and jetbikes will be added.
I love Sevatar, so I do want to base most of my force around him, but I also want to do another member of the original Kyroptera who might be mentioned off hand as a casualty in the beginning of Prince of Crows.
The chief Librarian also sounds like a fantastic character too.
