View Full Version : Pre-heresy Death Guard Color scheme

21-04-2007, 03:32
I've been reading the Horus Heresy novels and I've become confused.
In the novels from Loken's point of view he describes the death guard as all gun metal with no ornamentation. Now Garro describes them with green outlining or something. And on the cover of Eisenstein are those death guard or somebody else?

Did I just miss something or is there a descripancy?

the terminators may lack color but the troops are white with green shoulder pads and gold trim. Mortarion just hates decoration... not paint.

Mortarion doesn't like unnecessary ornamentation like needless logos or golden etching or filigree like the Emperor's Children. Views it as unnecessary. Nobody said anything about not giving his Legion a uniform paint scheme.
