Default Pre Heresy Emperors Children

Inspired by the new Dan Abnett book Horus Rising, i have started a marine army based on the pre heresy Emperors Children. Its being led by captain Tarvitz (from the fluff, but i dont know exactly what colour scheme they used. They had purple and gold, but thats all it said. If i knew how to put pictures up i would but unfortunately i dont.

What kind of layout are the colours in the army? And on the same matter what kind of secondary troops would they use (i.e. terminators, assault marines etc)

the pre-heresy emperors children have a colour scheme similar to the Hawk Lords in the SM codex, only with different insignia, if you find a hawk lord colour scheme, with perhaps a little tweaking to how you want it, it could be good. You could look for pre-heresy/Hawk Lords colour schemes in DoW on the net perhaps.

Keep in mind though, not all companies look/have to look the same. Although you may wish for some authenticity and want it to look EXACTLY as they really did, but as I say, it is all up to you.

The Emp&#39;s Children look...anti-Wargamer IMO (very fanboyish)

just looked in the index astartes book 1 at the emporers children. they believed that everyone needed to specialize in what they did, and they took no less than perfection, so nothing about anything special. basically a very rigid army, your best off using them as a vanilla marine list. so secondary troops would be whatever you felt like fielding at the time (no preferences to any particular style)

as for color, thats pretty much been covered - purple with gold trim. hmmm....emporers little ponies perhaps?

It says in the post for lucius the eternal that he had been leader of an assault squad, so maybe some of them.

One problem with the army is that they are the only legion allowed ti wear chest plates with the aquila on it, and so the entire army should have it.

Also, thanks for all the ideas, especially the us website, very useful
