>Of the hundred, less than thirty managed to fight their way past the Custodians and Sentinel Guard that surrounded Valdor. Those thirty closed on the First of the Ten Thousand as a single body, each wielding long blades that, even without the psychic charge normally provided by its user, could still cut ceramite armour asunder with ease. Valdor slew them all, but at great cost to himself, for at least one of the crimson warriors had left his mark upon the lord of the Custodes, red blood staining his gold armour.
Seems to me he fought them alone, it isn't clear though.

Corax paced slowly to the first cell door on the Red Level. He paused for a moment, repulsed and driven on in equal measure.
It had to be done.
Inside, he found a creature crouched in the corner, its skin white beneath clumps of thick black fur, its eyes round, ebon discs that stared at him without any obvious intellect. Even so, he could not ignore the similarities – the pale flesh, and the dark eyes.
They had fought the war, and they had won. Now was the time to put right the assertion he had made to the sorcerer Nathrakin, on the forge world of Constanix II.
‘I have made several oaths in my long life, but I have been careful to swear only those I could fulfil – except for one,’ he told the beast. He crouched next to the pitiful thing and it shuffled closer, comforted by his presence, though the sight of it broke the primarch’s heart. ‘One I now think may be beyond me. I looked into the face of our enemy, into the heart of the force that had corrupted them. I knew that, even if we killed Horus, that power could not be eradicated completely. Chaos will return with ever greater strength if we allow it, if we give it the vessels it seeks and feed the ambitions that drive the weak to its embrace.’
Corax recognised the adoration and trust that radiated from the deformed Raptor. He laid one massive hand upon the former legionary’s head, and the fingers of the other curled around his throat. The creature’s mouth worked a few times, and drool dribbled over Corax’s hand and fell to the floor in thick gobbets.
‘I remember everything, and I remember my exact words before I sent that fiend back into the warp-vortex that had birthed it...’
Tears stung the primarch’s eyes.
‘I... I promised him that I would destroy every warp-spawned, Chaos-tainted creature in the galaxy before I die...’
The mewling, groaning thing that had been Navar Hef met his gaze.
‘And I have always kept my promises, my son.’

To the anon in the last thread who insisted that Sevatar died in the battle of Terra, I object- assumes facts not in evidence. He is still in a detention cell on the Invincible Reason in the current plot.

Theories are:

1. Since he is a psyker now, he gets picked up by Malcador for the GKs. ADB hinted at that with the tomb scene in The Emperor's Gift.

2. Gets kicked out into the void with scraps of loyalist NLs, the ex-XIX Legion Ashen Claws and other Terran RGs, and they become the Carcharodons (an anon posted once that Alan Bligh told him that before he died)

Or 3. Like the Joker, or his daddy Konrad Curze, he magically escapes, and ends up back with the NLs to die on Terra.

No one knows yet. And since ADB whines on Facebook to the Sevatar fans how much he actually dislikes Sevatar, I don't expect a happy end.

Castellax except against dreads or mc. But with darkfires castellax work for that to.
- Castellax are troops (im putting this as a negative as they can't score.)
+ much better shooting naked against inf
+ cheaper, allows for stuff like eta and power blades typ make em even better.
The domitaur however has defensive grenades ok anti mc / light vehicle shooting and concussive without giving up a melee attack. Its also slightly faster then castellax as long as you keep it in controller range.

In the end i think the price is the deciding factor as while their attacks are potent. They lack the numbers required to not get swamped by tacs or worse and domitars are 100% less useful then an artalax.

Both however are much better pom recipients then a lone castellax. (If you don't have a thanny - But is argue that they don't really need pom

Vets and reavers are the SoH's bread and honey. Justaerin are just a bonus.

Some advice from a long time SoH player. Bully your opponent like a Night Lord and benefit from better shooting and reserves. That means take care to send your units to eliminate something you know they can eliminate. Don't send them into a fair fight unless you absolutely have to interdict that enemy unit.

Reavers. I know a lot of people run them cheaply with chain axes. I run mine somewhat expensive in two ways

1. Full squad (15) with jump packs, chain axes, and volkite chargers. 30 BS5 St5 shots. 65 st5 ap4 attacks on the charge plus merciless fighters attacks (sometime all 15) at initiative step 1 means a lot of wounds that have to be saved against most infantry. These guys work best against mechanicum thallax, ursarax, scyllax, vorax, adsecularis, and secutaris. They just delete those units with aplomb. But they're also great at taking down rapier crews, tactical squads, or any other non assault-oriented marine unit. Assassins eye is great at lumping your 6s to hit (both shooting and assault) on that powerfist wielding sargeant to limit the recourse to your guys.

2. 11 reavers. Jump packs. 5 Combi-meltas (for tackling vehicles). 5 combi-plasma (for tackling heavy infantry like terminators) Chieftan has combi-flamer. All have banestrike for ap3 rending. This unit can tackle exactly one heavy infantry unit with bs5 plasma, one vehicle with bs5 melta, and as many typical marine squads as they like with banestrike (assassins eye makes the banestrike even better as you can somewhat target your to wound rolls by allocating some hits and therefore rending to a degree). Basically they bounce around the board and delete a vehicle, then maim or delete a heavy infantry squad, the go looking for softer targets.

Yeah that works too. If I'm running black reaving I like to attach a Master of Signals to one of the two aforementioned units. With the first Jump Pack, volkite charger, and power axe (I know that means no merciless fighters bonus but it adds ap2) With the second, I run a jump pack and two plasma pistols.

He bounces with the squad for a turn or two depending on the circumstance, adding to their shooting and assaults then leaves to drop an orbital bombardment or bounces to help another squad's shooting.

I don't really care for hand flamers.

If I'm being charged with my SoH army, it means it's my fault and I didn't position correctly, especially if they have jump packs.

>> No.56343762

>fierce bravado

Yeah. They hit HARD inside 12" with death dealers and merciless fighters. Veterans with marksmen or machine killers become that much better. Chain axe reavers are brutal. Super aggressive.

It's like they don't excel at any one thing like artillery or vehicles or assault or shooting like some legions. Justaerin are rock hard but aren't terribly focused and are quite versatile (in a good way). Reavers likewise. They really suit their aggressive ethos and are really good if you use em that way. Up close they shoot better and attack more. With the right loadout it's a tough combo.

>> No.56343788

Can Justaerin score? I assume Horus is going with the Justaerin? Overall not too bad, although it has very few squads. I might recommend splitting the Justaerin into two squads of 5 simply to spread out your firepower or maybe go 5 justaerin and 5+ generic terminators. Right now your list has a weird triple death star thing going on, which while not inherently bad can be very easily countered by some lists.

Overall though I would consider Fulgrim (and many other primarchs) a bit of a mix of two others. Fulgrim is a bit like Guilliman and Sanguinius (and has the colours to match); Fulgrim has the same focus on diverse capabilities in warfare and formalized doctrines of Guilliman but had the same focus on doctrine, aesthetics, and idealization of humanity of Sanguinius. Before his fall I don't think there were many if any primarchs who were as pro-human as Fulgrim.

These are fairly good comparisons, though I've always pinned them more like this:

>Horus vs Guilliman
Both "exemplars" of political leadership and tactics, both fond of humblebragging and relatively egotistical.
>Fulgrim vs Sanguinius
Both exemplars of aesthetics and skill, but Fulgrim does it tryhard and vaingloriously where it just comes naturally to Sanguinius (the selfish vs selfless dichotomy). The other difference is Fulgrim denies his dark side but ends up reveling in it, while Sangy is aware of it and fights it.
>Russ vs Angron
One is Conan the Barbarian without any real problems, the other is Spartacus with survivor's guilt and a supervillain-tier curse that basically forces him to be evil. Both embody the "barbarian" mindset and image, but the truth is Russ is a mercenary brute who enjoys it for its own sake, while Angron had a sense of justice and was pushed into it by injustice.

The others are either correct (Dornaturbo and Curze vs Corax), or less on-the-nose because they didn't build two characters around the same archetype, or in the case of Khan don't really have much going on character-wise.

Lion & Curze: While their notions of right, wrong, honor, and justice are different, they behave according to their extremely high standards regarding them.

Fulgrim & Gulliman: Proud, use of combined arms, master administrators. Cult of personality (even though Gulliman would never admit it).

Perturabo & Ferrus: Fondness for direct pitched high-intensity conflict. Engineer mindset with voracious appetite for knowledge. Tinkers. Denigrate the weakness they see in others. Close ties to mechanicum.

Khan & Magnus: Better the devil you know regarding psykers. Mature and prudent, but irresistible once committed. Both have proclivities to mobile fluid warfare.

Russ & Angron: Dogs of war. (Wolves and War Hounds). Destroyers. Impetuous. Geno(xeno)cide experts.

Sanguinius & Horus: The exemplars. Aggressive, political, everyone likes them. The operate their legions similarly, overwhelming decisive engagement.

Corax & Alpharius: Subterfuge, misdirection, and the precise application of force. From the shadows or an unexpected quarter, secretive.

EC were the velvet glove to the Iron Hands. EC are one of maybe three Legions that count them as Sworn Brothers and their gameplay focuses synergize fairly well. Its a bit of a surprise if you aren't actually familiar with their relationship, but the two legions had an intense respect for their shared perfectionism even if they had equal and opposite approaches to it. The entire REASON Ferrus Manus flipped his lid and rushed into the dropsite massacre was that he was maddened with rage by the fact that Fulgrim was one of the few people he counted as a friend, making his betrayal much more personal.

>The other difference is Fulgrim denies his dark side but ends up reveling in it, while Sangy is aware of it and fights it.
Fulgrim didn't really have a "dark side" personality wise, he was flat out possessed. Its why I count EC as one of the few legions who didn't really gain anything narrative wise from the HH books, the closest thing they get to tragically ironic story arc is:

Not at all I was suggesting ways to make it slightly more competitive (or at least flexible). Death stars aren't a bad thing but they are concentrating a ton of points into small units making them prime targets. Your list currently has
>2 squads each with 10 combi-weapons
>1 Squad of 10 Justaerin
While any one of those units are good they are huge point sinks, for example a single vindicator if it can survive for long enough can absolutely destroy a huge chunk of your list. You might benefit from splitting up your army a bit, maybe taking two smaller units of Justaerin instead of one big one, since as long as your opponent doesn't have power fists Justaerin can outlast practically anything in CC between WS 5, 2 wounds, and AP 2 weapons

All your characters can buy rad grenades for cheap
Your basic infantry (Marauder squads, your unique unit) are basically veteran marines and can take Chainaxes, which means they are effectively S6 with the rad grenades.
They also get a few other fun toys.

The Imperium does have nukes, but they rarely use them. In most cases, a nuke would cause too much collateral damage to a planet they're trying to bring into compliance, or settle at a later date. In addition, when the Imperium needs to go for the 'nuclear option', they have infinitely better weapon choices, most of which are capable of leveling cities without radioactive fallout. or flat out destroying the entire planet.

However, like Destroyer units, I they keep them on hand and use them in special cases.

It also releases hydrochloric acid gas when reacting with inorganic material, making it corrosive to inorganic material as it burns. When reactive with organic material it releases hydrofluoric acid, making corrosive to organic material as it burns.

It's self oxidizing so it can burn in a vacuum.

It's so reactive that it violently reacts and burns stuff that has already burned, like ash, or even fame retardant materials like asbestos.

Which case are you talking about? On Istvaan III, the loyalist forces that survived the virus bombing only held out as long as they did because they dug into a densely packed and ruined city that they could prepare defenses for, and because Angron ran in, preventing Horus from just bombarding the site from orbit. In the span of a few weeks, the remaining loyalists were down to (according to Galaxy in Flames) a little over 100 marines from the Sons of Horus, Emperor's Children, and World Eaters (no Death Guard were present, thought if any did survive they were completely separated due to landing in the outskirts of the city)

On Istvaan V, the Iron Hands, Salamanders, and Raven Guard deployed almost in full. A few thousand survived from each Legion, largely due to the sheer chaos of the Dropsite Massacre and luck in slipping past the blockades. The Dropsite Massacre itself was considerably shorter, but it took much longer to 'finish' due to pockets of Loyalists escaping into the ash wastes and waging a guerrilla war until they were either wiped out or rescued.

Horus only decided that after the fact. Angron did not land the remainder of the World Eaters, forcing the Sons of Horus, Death Guard, and Emperor's Children to commit as well, with some manner of plan in mind. Angron saw survivors and immediately ran off the leash.

Horus decided to make the best of a shitty situation that Angron created for him. And in the end, they still pulled out of the Choral City and bombed it from orbit once they were convinced they had killed off most of the loyalists, which was Horus' plan in the first place.

FOOF (or Difluoride Dioxide) is another good candidate, it's the most electron negative substance known to man.
If it comes into contact with water it tends to explode in a cloud of Hydrogen Fluoride gas which is nasty to put it mildly.
It makes mustard-gas look like perfume.
As far as I know it's only reasonably stable at -160 degrees Celcius (decaying at 4% per day into oxygen and fluorine), but even then it will light shit on fire on contact, including stuff like water ice.

Honestly I think the primarch bomb is a bigger "issue." I mean if you enjoy your list go for it, but Horus and the Justaerin cost 1040 points alone, nearly half of your entire list. The idea behind splitting up the Justaerin is essentially "hey maybe don't have quite such excessive overkill." Since Horus and the Justaerin won't just kill everything in a single turn but they will kill anything in a single turn far too easily. Essentially you are wasting your firepower, like taking an entire 10 man heavy weapons squad with lascannons when your opponent's list is just a bunch of tactical squads in rhinos.

>> No.56373279

You've got a hell of a lot of artillery bait in that list. It's intimidating, but the problem is that you don't need 10 Terminators or 10 rapid-firing BS5 plasma guns + lascannon to kill most things whereas you're painting a massive target on three or four of your units. Horus alone will roll through pretty much anything, adding 10 2W 54ppm Termies is just begging for a Haywire squad, Medusa volley and/or grav out the ass plus literally anything that can Intercept doing so. Same with the Vets and their Raiders, although less so and I can see those being scary once in range.

It's entirely likely they've shown up, even as some sort of cameo. Although most tomb worlds didn't start waking up until around 40k, there were occasional run-ins with Necrons for millennia, largely due to people poking around too intensely in Necron ruins.

So it's quite possible that a Legion woke up some 'Crons during a compliance action or while investigating a world to claim it for the Imperium, took some losses, beat the 'Crons up enough to send them back to sleep, and never thought about it again.

All Eldar were. Fulgrim and the Emperor's Children ran into Eldrad and a council from Ulthwe on a paradise world in Fulgrim. In one of the short stories a squad of Marines fought guerrilla actions against Dark Eldar that were pretty much farming a planet of human colonists (and then the marines killed the colonists once they won because they didn't want to be part of the Imperium). During the Great Crusade though, I imagine actual conflicts with Eldar were relatively limited (i.e. Dark Eldar raiding on backwater planets, Craftworld negotiation parties) because yes, they were still reeling from the birth of Slaanesh, and the Eldar didn't have the strength to deal with Great Crusade Imperium in force.
