Title: Justaerin + veterans - black armour?

As I recall the Justaerin wore black Terminator armour.

Was this exclusive to the Terminator amour or is it something all 1st company marines would have? ie black armoured power armour for veteran squads?

Found this quote derived from Horus Rising:

Abaddon possessed both a suit of power armour and suit of Terminator Armour, the former being painted in the standard colours of his Legion, while the latter was primarily black in colouration. This marked him out as a member of the 1st Company elite, all of whom wore black armour. This marked him out as a member of the 1st Company elite, all of whom wore black armour.

If the 1st company was all black, why was his power armour not black?

Because all the first company wore terminator armour?Not sure about this though,just speculating...

Probably because he was a member of the Mournival,
his power armour would be in legion colours to assist in providing what would look like a united front for diplomatic reasons at meetings.

Horus was a very shrewd negotiator and would of been aware of this effect.

Dargor the Catulan Reaver's were from the 1st Coy, they wore Black Power armour with white trim.

From memory the Justaerin's armour was referred to as "Polished" black.
Not sure of the page reference though.

Thanks Yvraith.

Reavers being an Assault squad?

Yes the Katulan Reavers were the Jumppack Elite assult co.
The use of Turbines was mentioned so If you can find any old R/T jumpacks they would be ideal.

I'll be using Maxmini if I get round to that particular squad.
