Hello, and welcome to the official thread on Warseer for my own warband, consisting of Emperors Children. I apologize already in advance for my language since I am Swedish and far from mastering the English language. Most of these pictures are old and posted on other web-sites, and I havent been up to date to take any new pics lately but I will get around with that. In this first post I will deal with the fluff and statistics. I do have a few Nurgle Plague Marines of old that I will add here just to show you. I am currently writing my own stories about them, so if youre interesting in reading, just let me know.
Overall fluff (I wont add too much the usual official fluff, since you can read about it yourselves):
During the final moments of the siege of Terra, in overall saying, the entire Legion of the Emperors Children had left already, getting bored with fighting their brothers. While fighting in the Pandora sector, more specific, the Theron worlds suc-sector, they moved slowly to the Eye of Terror, since the whispers of their new patron called to them. When the news of the Warmasters death reached them, some broke off from the plundering and destroying human lives, to see it for themselves.
Seeking glory on his own behalf, Lord Commander Cyrius with a small band of battle-brothers, not from any specific company, traveled ahead of the others to do the most terrible deed at these times; steal the body of the Warmaster. The Sons of Horus were broken and shattered by the death of their leader, and internal fighting was already upon them. This was before they would be re-united again under Abaddons banner. With little ease, the small band of Emperors Children attacked their planet of choise, stole the body and destroyed the sacred temple he lay in. Upon returning with the body, he was neglected in the deed and Fulgrim ignored him completely, stating it to be a great victory to the Legion, and not Cyrius personally. Fabius Bile would be commanded to create and clone of the Warmaster, to what purpose only Fulgrim would know.
As the Sons of Horus would retaliate, and destroy the body entirely. Seeing they are vurnereble, Fulgrim seeks out a new planet to create a fortress monestary upon and claim in their possession, they clash upon a world where the World Eaters already have seeked refuge. As neither would move, this would be a fight for the Legions to remember. The Emperors Children saw this as a dead cause, moving on, out of the Eye of Terror, back to the Pandora sector where the Primarch of Roubute Guilliman, the new Lord Commander of the Imperium, had been searching for them. By now Fulgrim would have changed far from his human form and this would be where Roboute fell. Fulgrim would also disappear here, out of all existence for his sons to always wonder where and always looking for him.
In the 36th millennium is where my stories begins, so I wont spoil too much what happens in them. I can add, they would take a minor part in the 8th Black Crusade, lead by the Despoiler.
Portus Herkur: His name is a former Chapter Master of the Emperors Children (by some of the early HH-novels, we found out they did have Chapter Masters). He was the superior officer to the 22nd and 24th Companies (his Chapter). He was present at the battle of Skalathrax where both their Legion and the World Eaters Legion clashed one and another and split into warbands, and also the battle in Pandora sector (own added fluff, will explain later) against the Ultramarines where Fulgrim had been grotesquely changed by the daemon within the Primarch of the Ultramarines fell. Some thousand years later, he was responsible for the death Aquillan Riamus, Captain of Ultramarines, seeking revenge at the failure of protecting his Primarch. By offering a whole company of Ultramarines to his Princess, the Chapter Master was elevated to daemonhood. From that day he is known as the Perfected.
This warband has enemies within the Black Legion, after being apart of thoe that stole Horus corpse, World Eaters for reasons already mentioned and Thousand Sons for raiding the warband under the Sorcerer Pharados and stealing his warpseer and witch, Herowina. But on the otherhand they are on good terms with the Iron Warriors after a favor they did for them.
Alder Quirrux: The Perfected commanded 3 companies of the Emperors Children, by now that numbers barely covers 2. Quirrux used to be a member of the First Company, under Captain Julius Kaesoron, but some illdone favor caused him to be cast thrown the captains grace, despite being a promising future that even Fulgrim took notice to. Now he serves as commander over First Company and is the Chaos Lieutenant and right hand to the daemon prince.
His squad is the Phoenix Guard, and just like them every member of First Company wears the original colours of purple and gold. (So far I only have 5 models covering this but is thinking about getting more).
Lucas Marerious, the Soulripper: He is the second to Quirrux and commands 10 Terminators. He is close to being automaton, following Quirrux orders without question and not looking for rising in powers. But unlike Quirrux and the rest of First Company, they have the colors of black and pink, not out of defiance, but a matter of taste. His earlier history is unknown at this point but is thinking about elaborating it much further.
Xalath: He commands Second Company and a squad of Chosen, and is heavily disliked by pretty much everyone except the Perfected who keeps him around cause the Warp favors him, not necessarily the Prince of Excess himself. Exelente at stealth, he was the previous commander of 24th Company. His second in command is Zendras, a sorcerer amongst the Chosen. He has a daemonic arm. So far not much more have been added.
Virrul Serdar: The storys main protagonist. Former sergeant of the Sixth squad of 24th Company, he is called the Voice of Slaanesh due to his deadly capturing singing. Crest or tassel (not sure what to call it) on the helmet, carries a sensation blade; Blade of Stimulation, and a bolt-pistol. During the battle of Skalathrax, he was burned and crippled in skin, hardly any facial recognition left, by Khârn himself. Serdar holds a personal grudge against the World Eaters due to destroying his perfect features. I got a pictures perfectly how I picture him in my head which I will upload later. He was a member of Lord Cyrius strike team (the Astartes responsible for the first death of Lucius the Eternal) when retrieving the body of Horus for cloning directly after the end of the Horus Heresy. He serves with 10 men under his command at first, but they deminish over time. Five of them make a bigger appearence in the written story.
Castiel and “The Curvus”: The Possessed Chaos Space Marines, thought to be the prime examples of the warband, something to strive after, but looked upon with disgust. Castiel has an unknown number of possessed at his disposal (so far I have 10 models) but they decrease in numbers as they are killed. Castiel and Serdar have some internal struggle with each other and nobody likes the other.
Drognaz the Uninspired: A Noise Marine under Serdars command until he is almost killed by an possessed and interred into a Dreadnought. I dont have the model yet personally, but Im thinking about buying one soon. Some of his first words as he woke up was "What happened to my body, little one? I sense no inspiration as trapped within my own tomb."
Also I have an unknown so far, character for some Havocs that will appear in the second novel that Im writing. He will command 14 Havos, everyone using heavy weapons. They will have the colors of black and purple, kinda like a mixture between the separet 1st and 2nd companies, trying to be the bridge between them as outsiders. Almost everyone a Emperors Child, except one or two who in fact will be Iron Warriors.
That was the fluff, now over the numbers and figurs.
1 Damon Prince.
1 Typhus the Herald of Nurgle (if I would use him and the Death Guard).
- I am thinking about getting an individual model for Quirrux, instead of the standard Terminators, using a Chaos Lord.
1st squad, 5 Terminators, Phoenix Guard in purple and gold.
2nd squad, 10 Terminators, Lucas squad in pink and black.
3rd squad, 10 Chosen. Bears the mark of Chaos Undivided/Chaos Glory, not sure what it is called these days.
4th squad, 10 Possessed Chaos Space Marines.
1st squad, 10 Noise Marines. Serdars squad.
2nd squad, 10 Chaos Space Marines, bearing the mark of Slaanesh.
3rd squad, 7 Nurgle Marines (if used).
4th squad, 7 Nurgle Marines (if used).
1st squad, 5 Havoks. Lugati Salkatar, a Havoc of the Night Lords that commands 15 Astartes, mixed Emperors Children and Night Lords. This explains why they bears the mark of Chaos Undivided and not Slaanesh.
2nd squad, 5 Havosk. Bears the mark of Chaos Undivided.
3rd, squad, 5 Havosk. Bears no mark.
- Finishing the last 8 Havoks.
- 2 Leman Russ tanks (I collect Imperial Guard as well, just had to mention).
- Sell old LotRs and Fantasy figures.
Then Im not sure but one or more than one of these.
- CSM: Battleforce. What I will do about the World Eaters however, I am not certain about.
But if I wont get that, I will buy this combo.
- Terminator Lord (to display Quirrux better).
- 5 Terminators (not sure if Chaos Terminators or regular Terminators to convert a lil bit).
- 2 Chaos Spawns.
Otherwise I have this other combo.
- Raptors (the new non-metal ones, if they are available).
- Venerable Dreadnought and convert a lil bit.
Like you see, I cant buy all, but I want one or another so my mind is pretty split. Pictures will now appear here.
