*Patpat*

Luna Wolves: Pale grey-green (GW rotting flesh seems pretty close)
Sons of Horus: Grey (Fortress is about the right tone)
Black Legion: Er, yeah. They're Chaos conveniently enough.

Wrong, the Luna Wolves are while with black trim and the Sons of Horus are greyish green with black trim
Oddly enough on the Horus Heresy books they had SOH colours on the first book where they weren't SOH till the last chapter and LW colours on teh cover of the second book where they were SOH the whole way through

Yeah, back in the late '80's they were still seen as being blak blak blak all the time. And their Eye of Terra, which they called the Eye of Horus, often looked like the real-life Eye of Horus, at least on their banners.

I know that they've changed pretty considerably. On the other hand, the force you field could just be from the First Company, which, if I recall my Horus Rising correctly, was painted all-black as they were apart from the rest of the Legion, "...another, different, Black Legion..." Ooh, spooky:eek:

Also, IIRC from the same tome, a 'company" in the Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus Legion was about 300 troops pre-Heresy. So you can go nuts with the numbers of squads.
