Disappointed in the colour scheme, just doesn't fit the Legion aesthetic imo.

 

And, iirc, no mention of them differing in colour from the rest of the Legion has ever been mentioned. (Leaving them grey eould have been cooler!)

"Now we’ve announced the upcoming edition of the Horus Heresy game, players will be pleased to note that all of the Exemplary Battles units we’ve published in this series will have their profiles updated to work with the new rules – stay tuned for more, but rest assured they will remain usable. In fact, they were all written for the new edition and then reverse-engineered to fit the current one – it’s almost like we had a plan all along…"


Hallelu:cussingjah!

Where do those chain axes come from? Are they a normal part of the Cataphractii kit?

Resin Cataphractii Power Axes, theyve been around since the resin kit more or less.

Cool, thank you. Had only ever seen the plastic kits for these guys.

I'm really happy theyre keeping the exemplary battle units and not doing a bait and switch.

 

The deliverers rules are clearly written with 2nd in mind; the instant death threshold mechanic is a usr called battle-hardened (one that Abaddon has).

 

But their role is really odd. If you build them purely for deepstrike blasting, then theyre limited to anti infantry with their melee. You can tech into a bit more versatility with talons, but you lose that shooting punch. Keep these guys right away from dreads that you can't pop.

Counterpoint: being red sets them apart from the legion because they aren't exactly pals with the legion that is run by the Primarch? Like the red is such a minor issue in my eyes since they're essentially blackshields that haven't "cut the cord" as it were.

The color scheme makes a lot of sense when you compare them to Justaerin. They’re the inverse; red dominant and black touches. One even has a half-moon marking on the knee.

"Half moon" is basically the RGs tactical pictogram.

While this idea is pretty cool, that ‘half moon’ icon is one of the main icons on the RG transfer sheet, so I don’t think it’s related to the SoH (or Luna Wolves) like that.

 

Edit: Ninjad.
