heresy-era loyalist emperors children army

Post  dusktiger on Sun Oct 21, 2012 8:27 am

im starting to hash out a rough idea for a 1500pt list right now for a heresy army. im thinking of going emperor's children because the background sounds appealing and the color of armor is a new challenge since i havent painted purple much yet.

so far, i've picked out 3 of my troop choices, but will have to pick a 4th as 2 of them have a side-rule that states they cant be chosen as the first 2 cumpulsory troop choices as they're a type of troop choice that supports the normal ones.

Legion Breacher Siege Squad (10)
225pts base
+2 Melta Guns @ +30pts
total = 255pts
may take a normal land raider
these have boarding shields, and have the option of giving every model a melta bomb @ 5pts per guy.


Legion Recon Squad (5)
125pts base
+5 marines @ +15pts each
+9 Sniper Rifles @ +5pts each
total = 245pts
can take a rhino, cant be the first 2 troop choices
these guys have scout, outflank, acute senses, a special defensive grenade that forces a Ld check before you can charge them, and can do the melta bomb thing too.


Legion Tactical Support Squad (5)
100pts base
+5 marines @ +15pts each
+9 Volkite Calivers @ +5pts each (Range 30"; S 6; AP 5; Heavy 2)
total = 220pts
can take a rhino, cant be the first 2 troop choices
these all have flamers to start with, and you swap it out for another weapon squad-wide. these look like good objective holders with this layout.


right now this gives me 720pts.

im thinking my HQ will be a Praetor,
Legion Praetor
100 base, comes with artificer armour, BPistol, chainsword, grenades
Digital Lasers @ +15pts (gives +1 attack, making him base 5 attacks before the +1 bonus for pair of 1-handed weapons)
Iron Halo @ +25pts
Charnable Sabre @ +10pts (S User; AP -; Melee, Rending, When fighting in a challenge, wielder gains +1 Initiative [he's base initiative 5 to start])
or
Paragon Blade @ +25pts (S +1; AP 2; Melee, Specialist Weapon, Instant Death on rolls of 6)

total = 150pts or 165pts

been slowly making an army builder data file to start tinkering with list builds this weekend.
so far, i think i'd like to try out the following models:
Unlimited Pts - Legion Army Roster

HQ
Legion Praetor, 165 pts ( Warlord)
(Legiones Astartes; Master of the Legion; Frag & Krak Grenades; Artificer Armour; Bolt Pistol)

Volkite Charger @ 10pts (range 15"; S 5; AP 5; assault 2)
Charnabal Sabre @ 10pts (S User; AP -; Melee, Rending, +1 Initiative in challenges)
Digital Lasers @ 10pts (+1 attack)makes him base 6 attacks now
Melta Bombs @ 5pts
Iron Halo @ 25pts


Troops
Legion Assault Squad (10), 300 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Jump Pack; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol; Chainsword)

Melta Bombs @ 5pts per model
Legion Assault Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol; Chainsword)

Melta Bombs @ 5pts

Legion Breacher Siege Squad (10), 305 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Boarding Shield; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol; Boltgun x7)

2 Meltagun @ 15pts each
Melta Bombs @ 5pts per model

Legion Breacher Siege Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Boarding Shield; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol; Boltgun)

Melta Bombs @ 5pts

Legion Reconnaissance Squad (5), 145 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Support Squad; Acute Senses; Outflank; Scout; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol)

4 Sniper Rifles @ 5pts each
Legion Reconnaissance Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Support Squad; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol; Boltgun)


Legion Tactical Support Squad (5), 120 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Support Squad; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol)

4 Volkite Caliver @ 5pts per model (range 30" S 6; AP 5; Heavy 2)
Legion Tactical Support Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Support Squad; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol; Close Combat Weapon)


Fast Attack
Legion Attack Bike Squadron (2), 100 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Space Marine Bike; Bolt Pistol; Chainsword)

2 Autocannon @ 5pts each
Melta Bombs @ 5pts per model


Heavy Support
Legion Heavy Support Squad (5), 185 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol)

Volkite Culverin @ 10pts per model (range 45" S 6; AP 5; Heavy 4)
Legion Heavy Support Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol

Volkite Culverin @ 10pts (range 45" S 6; AP 5; Heavy 4)

Volkite Weapons - for every unsaved wound these cause, the target suffers that many more auto-hit attacks from the weapon that can be saved as normal. these additional attacks do not generate more attacks if they cause more unsaved wounds.

Composition Report:
HQ: 1 (1 - 2)
Elite: 0 (0 - 3)
Troops: 4 (2 - 6)
Fast: 1 (0 - 3)
Heavy: 1 (0 - 3)
Fort: 0 (0 - 1)

Total Roster Cost: 1320

this will leave me room to take a predator and something else for 1500pts i think

I would take the other HQ weapon, unless I'm missing something it is way better

this is what i came up with to start off at 750pts:

HQ:
Legion Primus Medicae, 130 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Sacred Trust; Narthecium; Needle Pistol; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Bolt Pistol)

Volkite Charger - R 15"; S 5; AP 5; Assault 2
Heavy Chainsword - S +2, AP 5
Artificer Armour
Melta Bombs
Refractor Field - 5+Invul

Troops:
Legion Tactical Squad (10), 175 pts
(Fury of the Legion; Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol x9; Boltgun x9)

Chainsword x9
. . 1 Legion Tactical Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol x1; Boltgun x1)

Chainsword
Melta Bombs
Legion Assault Squad (10), 300 pts
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Jump Pack; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol x9; Chainsword)

Melta Bombs
. . 1 Legion Assault Sergeant
(Legiones Astartes; Assault Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Bolt Pistol x1; Chainsword)

Melta Bombs

Heavy Support:
1 Legion Predator Squadron, 145 pts
. . 1 Legion Predator (Searchlight; Smoke Launchers; Predator Cannon - Heavy 4 autocannon)

Auxiliary Drive - ignore immobilized on 4+
Armoured Ceramite - ignores Melta USR
Heavy Bolter Sponsons
Pintle Mounted Heavy Bolter

i based the list off the fluff that they had an unusually large apothecarion (wow, sounds like red scorpions), and that they prefer fast moving units and thus have higher than normal usage of assault squads, speeders, and jetbikes.

when i expand the collection, i'll have my Praetor (went with the paragon blade in the end), a squad of palatine blades (unique EC unit), and some speeders and jetbikes tossed into the mix.

looks pretty cool. I have to admit I am super excited at the prospects of pre-heresy Imperial Fists. They have been my favorite Legion for forever. I just hope they do Dorn justice (both model/rule wise).
