My idea for the Catulan reaver squad would be,base model
the Vet assault squad,plus own idea,maybe use whatever looks pre-heresy for them(minus Termi honours.)and the rest in bits box,(or for that matter
green stuff their helms that look Mk7 for crusade or iron helms,it ain't that hard.
Their are plenty of people around here that can show you how. :D
Good luck Warmaster,and Lupercal! :D :)

While there are no pictures of the Catulan Reaver Squad in the artwork, there are several pictures of other Sons of Horus Reaver Squads that could help provide inspiration. A couple of examples:

Going by these, Mk IV helms and old turbo-fan style jetpacks are the way forward. One option might be to use Forgeworld's Red Scorpion Vanguard Vetarans, which come with Mk IV helms (see here), and then replacing the jetpacks with older-style ones. Jetpack options are using the packs from Chaos Raptors, or using the wookiehole conversion pack (see here).

Of course, you could convert the GW Vanguard Vetarans if you are confident enough in your greenstuff skills - however, you would need to convert all the helms in to older style ones (Mk IV or earlier), and do something about the aquilas on the breastplates, so it would probably be easier to use plastic and resin parts which are easier to convert, and give you the option to use older helms without having to use GS or remove metal helms with a dremel.

For rules, you could use the Vanguard Veterans in the New SM Codex. That is if you want to field them as a force for tournaments etc.
