Latest Horus Heresy units finished for Istvaan III
« on: February 11, 2018, 12:35:44 AM »
The first of the Sons of Horus forces for our Istvaan III game at Historicon are just about finished. These guys still need some weathering but other than that they are all finished. 



They are going to see some action on the table tomorrow as we play an Istvaan III game.  They will be on the loyalist side as a rag tag band of survivors try to live through an attack by the World Eater Primarch.   



Juljak Nul was a commander in the Warhounds before the recovery of Angron. He suffered horrific wounds and was interred in a dreadnought eventually.



He was with the troops sent down to die on Istvaan III and survived the virus bombing and resultant fire storms.

He eventually fell along with many other World Eaters when Angron attacked the survivors.



Nul was equipped with two Kheres pattern assault cannons during the fighting on Istvaan III.

Thanks.  Here are the first of the XVI's veteran squad.





There is another bolter armed guy who is finished and then there will be two specialists and a Sergeant.  I'm not sure what the specialists are getting yet.  Options are meltagun, flamer, plasma gun, missile launcher (although I already have a squad of those so probably not) or Heavy bolter.

I'm thinking Plasma gun and melta gun or two plasma guns. 

We will see.  I'll probably build them later tonight if I'm still snowed in.

I just completed the next Veteran Squad for my SoH for the Istvaan III game.  These guys are going to be the core of the SoH force. 


There are 10 of them.  One with a plasma gun, one with a melta gun and a Sergeant.  The rest have bolters.  The sergeant is showing some wear and tear in that his armour has been patched with the vambrace and gauntlet from an Emperor's Children marine. 



The rest of the guys are pretty standard as I will probably use these for stuff other than Istvaan III, likely including a Molech campaign at some point and the attack on the Vengeful Spirit later as my friend as a crap load of Blood Angels and I have some Custodes.

Just got finished with the Reavers.  These guys will be reinforcements not part of the main army initially deployed.  They will only come on as traitors.









I made them using a mix of the MKIV marines and a couple of frames from the Khorne berzerker box that I found in a used bin for $10. 

I will probably do three more of them before the game.

Nice work Scott.  Of course they deserve to die in a hail of artillery shells but nicely done none the less.

Thank you.  Here is the tank that might make some of them die. 



Just some heavy support to add some anti-infantry firepower to the loyalist Sons of Horus.  Possibly not the best load out for a vehicle that is going to only be fighting space marines but with 8 shots a turn, it might put a hurting on Angron himself.



Obviously it has seen some battle prior to these pictures being taken.  The gang signs so prevalent on the armour of the Sons of Horus can be seen on this vehicle. 



I'll have to get the guys together for a group shot at some point.  Most of them are here but the heavy weapons squad is at my storage unit.  I might run out there today when I go to the gym.

This finishes off the Sons of Horus for now.  I may add a few more reavers to the reaver squad but no more units will be added until after I get some Emperor's Children done.  I'm starting on those with a Cerebus heavy tank destroyer.  I thin they will be coming to the fight as an elite force using the rite of war that allows them to field terminators and veterans as troop choices.

Thanks!  I just finished painting three more reavers and got some Emperor's Children stuff assembled so those are on the desk next.
