Named for, and led by, the Warmaster himself, the combat doctrines of the Sons of Horus were those of the application of overwhelming force directed to where the foe was weakest. These shattering blows were used to utterly destroy enemy command cadres, vital strategic support structures and wreak terrible slaughter on the pride of an enemy’s forces, often turning the tide of an entire conflict with a single, well-placed and savage attack.
The Sons of Horus Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the Sons of Horus Task Force. It includes a 5 man Justaerin Terminator Squad, a Justaerin Terminator Weapon set, a 5 man Sons of Horus Reaver Attack Squad, and a Sons of Horus Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with a pair of Kheres Assault Cannon.
The Death Guard are known for their unflinching determination and victory through bloody, gruelling attrition when all else fails. In the dark days of the Horus Heresy, their expertise in the proscribed bio-alchem and rad weaponry won them many terrible victories against their former brothers.
The Death Guard Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the Death Guard Task Force. It includes a 5 man Grave Warden Terminator Squad, a 5 man Legion MkIV Destroyer Squad, and a Death Guard Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with a pair of Kheres Assault Cannon.
No longer driven by duty and honour, but by the thirst for forbidden lore and undeserved power, the Word Bearers seek to bind the Warp itself and enslave its denizens to their will. When XVIIth Legion marches to war, the fabric of reality is distorted and the dread things of the Abyss march at their side.
The Word Bearers Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the Word Bearers Task Force. It includes a unit of 5 Gal Vorbak, a 5 man Ashen Circle unit, and a Word Bearers Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with a pair of Kheres Assault Cannon.
Masters of the engines of war, the Iron Hands are proud and relentless. Having fought for many years at the forefront of the Great Crusade, and seen victories uncounted, many have labelled them as callous and as inhuman as the machines they employ with such devastating skill.
The Iron Hands Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the Iron Hands Task Force. It includes a 5 man Gorgon Terminator Squad, a 5 man Iron Hands Legion MkIII Squad, and an Iron Hands Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with a Close Combat Fist and Heavy Bolter.
Masters of artifice and possessed of a fearsome and uncompromising sense of honour, the Salamanders Legion stands for toil and sacrifice. Each Legionnaire bears arms and armour forged to the highest possible standards and often by their own hands. The Legion wields the tools of the smith as weapons of war, bringing heat, iron and raw strength of arms to strike down all those who would deny the Imperial Truth or attempt to undermine the Imperium of Man.
The Salamanders Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the Salamanders Task Force. It includes a unit of 5 Firedrakes, a 5 man Pyroclasts Squad, and a Salamanders Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with a Close Combat Fist and Multi-melta.
At the outbreak of the Horus Heresy, the Taghmata Omnissiah was the principal type of operational force of the trans-Martian Mechanicum. Incorporating many distinct divisions and sub-cults, a Taghmata on the battlefield could include endless varieties of automata, Adescularis tech-thralls, Thallax cohorts and constructs and war machines of unfettered devastation.
The Mechanicum Taghmata Support Cadre is an excellent way to expand your Mechanicum Army. It includes a Thallax Cohort of three Thallax, a 10 man Tech-thrall Covenant armed with Las-lock rifles, and a hulking Thanatar-Calix class Battle-automata.
Once known as the ‘War Hounds’, the reputation of the World Eaters Legion was of beasts, butchers and madmen whose fury was fuelled by bloodshed. Their reputation was well deserved, if an oversimplification of them as a fighting force, which knew well the virtue of tactics and weapons, at least before their fall.
The World Eaters Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the World Eaters Task Force. It includes a unit of 5 Red Butchers, a 5 man World Eaters Legion Rampager Squad, and a World Eaters Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with two Contemptor Chainfists.
Striving to be exemplars above all others in the arts of war; paragons of martial virtue and excellence, the Emperor’s Children sought to meet perhaps unattainable standards. This led them to seek perfection in war as a fluid, lightning-quick force whose battles were preordained victories brought about by a combination of acute strategic planning and flawless execution. Seen as vainglorious, their arrogance was markedly deserved in respect to their swordsmanship and martial prowess.
The Emperor’s Children Legion Support Cadre is a fantastic way to build on your Legion, and the perfect next step from the Emperor’s Children Task Force. It includes a 5 man Phoenix Terminator Squad, a unit of 5 Palatine Blades, and an Emperor’s Children Legion Contemptor Dreadnought armed with a Heavy Conversion Beamer and Heavy Bolter.
