Soooo....

I purchased a StromLord (cheaper Mastadon).

 

Question is - what should I put in it? Fluffy but actually able to do some damage :-)

Well, I took the dive and started my Emperor's Children army. To start it off I got Eidolon and two max units of Kakophoni since I reeeeally like the way they behave. This is going to be a full blown traitor army. Does anyone have any recommendations on where I should start next? I primarily plan on running the 3rd company elite. I understand that 8th might change some things, but I am curious to your guys' input.

Why not buy Eidalon some friends?
Fifteen Assault Marines in MKIV Armour.
Look ace and kick ass.

Oh, and welcome to perfection, brother. cool.png

 

Oh wow I completely forgot about assault squads!  In my local meta I don't think I have seen them fielded EVER in 30k or 40k for that matter.  I think I can get a hold of some Mk IV marines and use some Maxmini jump packs since FW doesn't sell them separately.  

 

probably not very competitive at 2000pts, but i think it could be fun: eidolon & command with jump packs, 15 assault with 3 powerswords, shriekers and combat shields, 2x Kakaphonie, 2x Cortus, 3x apothecary. is what i am working towards.

 

 

This sounds like a perfect "fallen" EC list to me.

 

I'm currently putting together a loyalist Orbital Assault list

I play these, have to say that is my loadout, been using eidolon in assault squad for couple, years now, if they make it great, he wrecks face with his hammer.
Give you an example, jumped up and smashed 4 wounds off a knight lancer, killed it, str d the squad, saves invuln along with the sarge and combat shield, goes on to smash a Mortis temptor and finish off a sicaran. Totally worth the points.
Kakophoni need those medics.
Cortus with chainfists. Choose whether to give them grav fists or not. Has helped to strip out a spartan so I can eat the insides.

Is the consensus here that using Fulgrim you can just pick which sword he uses?

That doesn't agre with my reading of the rules. I don't see how you can have Fulgrim wielding Fireblade in an army including Kakophoni.

Read Angel Exterminatus. There's certainly Kakophoni (Marius himself)

Fulgrim carries around Fireblade in this book and he used it in a short story to [SPOILER] detach Eidolon's head from his body. 

 

Fluffwise, it makes a LOT more sense than [SPOILER] a DAEMON sword that possessed his body and he had to become a rip-off of Dorian Gray. 

 

I always use Fireblade as I abhor the Daemon, it is imperfect and it's so much better in the game it's painful.

Wait.
Didn't had Manus had that sword?

Totally agree in the Daemon part.
What a stupid story.

Ferrus had Fireblade (a golden bladed sword) when he fought Fulgrim. Fulgrim used hammer-time. 

 

Fulgrim won [SPOILER]. If we keep the logic that the "Golden Bladed Sword" wasn't destroyed as neither was Forgebreaker.... 

 

If we accept that Angel Exterminatus and its now canon happens after ISSTVAN V and the Great Crusade..

 

Please see some extracts from Angel Exterminatus by Graham McNeil.

 

If people say the fluff he can't use Fireblade, quote these:

 

Fulgrim decapitated Eidolon with Fireblade " On the far side of the shadowed laboratory, a severed head sat atop a crown of surgical spikes, tube feeds, blood pumps, electro-cortical stimulators and coolant coils that kept the brain within from death. Head and body belonged together, but had been shorn by a single blow from Fulgrim’s goldenbladed sword." 

 

"Fulgrim was dressed more like the brother he had last seen on Isstvan V, in his purple battle armour, its subtle shades worked through the deepening hues of each plate. A fur-trimmed cloak hung asymmetrically from his shoulders and the black leather-wrapped handle of his golden sword – the selfsame blade Ferrus had crafted in the Terrawatt forges of Mount Narodnya – hung at his hip."

 

"Fulgrim shook his head and a gleam of golden fire appeared in his hand, the sword Ferrus Manus had crafted for him so long ago. ‘It’s mine!’screamed Fulgrim, and rammed the blade into Perturabo’s stomach, tearing it up through his sternum and into his chest."

Yeah - I managed it in a few games. 
RAW - your units get +1 movement and charge moves on the first turn, and if your dawn of war or search and destroy maps:

 

Spartan with Eidolon & Unit in moves 7" - as it says you get +1 movement. It then disembarks infantry 7". You're then 10" away from enemy. With Eidolon WT and the Maru Skara +1 to charges. You have a 8" charge distance on Dawn of War. 

Search & Destroy - you can be even closer as you're only 18" away from the start of the game potentially :-)
