Pre-Heresy, the World Eaters were already a bunch of berzerker nutcases, thanks to Angron having them implanted with aggression-increasing cybernetics; their colour scheme was predominately white with blue trim.

I'd use the Blood Angels list, personally...

Failing that... the Furious Assault trait (No Mercy, No Respite?) is a must.

No question... that and the one that gives you Bolt Pistols and close-combat weapons in your tac-squads.


As for your disadvantages... well, I can imagine they probably don't know when to call it quits, and no-one in their right mind would want to be on the same battlefield with them, regardless of the side...

Taking two traits neccessitates a Major Drawback though... so you're either looking at "no old stuff", "no fast stuff", or "no tanks".

No Old Stuff works best... Terminator Armour was very rare early on in the Crusade, and only really began to appear once the Heresy had kicked off.

That's ironic really seeing as how 10,000 years ago all they had was what we regard as 'old stuff'. ;D

I would have said no fast stuff, i mean the post heresy Korn army's are not known for there super fast choice are they. so to me it just seem like if they have little fast choice now then the pre korn chapter would also have Less fast options. also from every thing we read on terminator suits and dreadnaughts they hark back from Millenniums ago so it would be silly in my opinion to not include them.

What about the feared Khorne Rhino rush? An army so blinded by bloodlust has good reason to cross open ground and make contact with the enemy as fast as possible! I disagree with the notion that they are in any way ponderous.

As for 'old stuff', well like Wargamer said, there wasn't a lot Terminator armour around back then...it came into more common use towards the end of the heresy.
