I was just wondering what the colour for the sons of Horus armour was. IA shows us that its a pale green, whilst the art in the Horus heresy book they seem grey. So what is right colour?

Index Astartes would be my preferred source, but remember that they were the Lunar Wolves first, and only later the Sons of Horus. It is possible that the Lunar Wolves were grey, the Sons of Horus green, and then finally when they became the Black Legion, they were, well... black...

Hope that helps.

The grey-whire colour is from when they were the Luna Wolves. They turned green when they became the Sons of Horus.

The last picture that says it was renamed for unknown reasons is incorrect. Codex Chaos Marines tells you the reason. Abaddon made them change name and color after the defeat of horus because of the shame.

Red Elf gets it's stuff from out-of-print stuff. It's how it can stay online without the lawyers getting involved.

those little IA annotations are in-character (they often say "cross reference with") ~ the imperium doesnt necessarily know why the colour was changed

doesnt the hardback IVth edition rulebook include the Emperor v Horus picture from the CCG? (in which case the green would be outdated)
