Title: Erebus his armour

Bearers of the Word I have a question for you.

I been thinking of making myself a Erebus model to fight besided my Horus (counts as Abaddon) in my Sons of Horus army. Since he never leaves Horus side during the Heresy I thought it would be fun to make a model of him and use him as the squad Sarge on the squad that goes with Horus in his Land Raider.

Now my question is what colour is his armour?

Does he wear the traditional grey or did he like in Battle for the Abbys wears the dark red that does guys wear.

Thanx,

Vissah

Depends when you're setting it. Pre-Heresy the WB legion wore granite grey... but as Horus played his hand, they switched to dark red.

The artwork of Erebus shows him at the Siege of Terra in red. But also covered in Chaos imagery.

Wait for 'The First Heretic' if you want a definitive answer... ;)

That is right mate I will wait for the book to come.

Im thinking of making him a Chaplain ofcourse with the red armour, it just looks better :D.

My Sons of Horus are based on the part were the betray the Emperor. They dont wear all the Chaos stuff but I use the CHaos Codex for them.
The LAnd Raider is the black of the first company with Horus in black armour and the squad he rides with also in first company black.
Putting a dark red CHaplain in the squad as a counts as Sarge looks better than a grey one in my opiniun.

Im thinking of this style on the pic with the eagle ofcourse.
