There's the Flawless Host renegade warband... a.k.a. what I play... and there's supposed to be a splinter of Emperor's Children called the Flawless Host.
So you could play either with your own scheme.
Noise Marines with the new rules from Faith & Fury are really nice, so it's something to consider. A blob of 20 Noise Marines with Sonic Blasters and Blastmasters with the new strat to add to the sonic weapon Strength and fire twice from Cacophony looks* REALLY good.
I play Flawless Host because I like getting stuck in melee and proccing extra attacks is a fun mini-game for me... right now a Demon Prince with Rapacious Talons casting Demonic Strength on itself is hilarious. If you like melee, Lucius might be the way to go... if you like shooting more, which A LOT of people do... then Noise Marines might be your pick.
Either way, sort of figuring out how you like to play is the first step, and if you know a few people maybe ask to borrow their minis for a few practice games to see what about Slaanesh marines you like the most.
I can also DM you my recipe for Flawless Host using a tan base and mostly contrast paints to get it finished quickly if your interested. Painting time went from 6 hours per mini to 2 hours per mini. But I'm a perfectionist so there's that...
*Disclosure - I personally haven't played Noise Marines yet this edition, so take with a grain of salt.
The thing I like the most about Flawless Host is their colour scheme, I think it's simple but looks great for the type of army i want to create (not so rockstar EC, more like beautifull regal decadent space marines, with a morbid beauty...).
I was thiking about those colour schemes, but it's hard for me to decide:
I don't know what's best for my current level of painting, I just painted some Nurgle Daemons, that's all my miniature painting experience. There are two pictures, so you can see my current level of painting:
I love noise marines, but yesterday the manager of my local GW store told me that maybe I should wait instead of buying the noise marine conversion bits, because they think (don't know 100%, but thats what they are suspecting) that a new codex for EC it's coming in the 9th edition, and may be in june. But I think thats too much time for me to wait, and I could just buy it and start practicing and GET LOUDER.
I'm thiking about having this for a good deal https://www.goblintr...1921117789.html so I get 30CSM, and i could make 20 noise marines and 10 slaanesh CSM, but i don't know a lot about rules yet so I'm talking without any real knowlege.
Let's say I want to create a first 1000pts list (that I would expand in the future), with noise marines, more shooting focused army, what would you choose?
I would appreciate that recipe for Flawless Host colours, I have some idea about how I would make them in case i choose their colour scheme, but all information it's usefull. I'm not a big fan of speed painting, I like to take my time painting, I'm also a perfectionist, brother, hehe.
PD: Excuse me for my bad english , I'm trying to improve.
