Okay so I am very excited, I'm wonderfully stuck in the middle of Northern Michigan's woods and it has REALLY helped me reconnect with core concepts of my legion. I cannot wait to get back to my computer to fully realize all of it
But I have rough rules in place for the legion of as a whole.
Also mind you many of these are just rules I've been spit balling and would love some input, I'm obviously trying to aim the Bears as a ponderous, tough, hard hitting in CC Army. I'd love any input and a lot of wargear is Character only
*First Lord Chief Cass
*Fourth Lord Chief R.Damon Redd
*Legion Champion Solomon Grundy
*Chief Cleric Old Man R.L Cullen
*Chief Cleric Or'tan Songblade
*Totem Pattern Armour: Developed as a concept by Daer'dd for his elite Totem guard, Totem Armour is less a specific series of upgrades, starting off with Iron Bound or Artificer suits of power armour a series of motivation units and additional muscle fiber bundles, a force shield generator, an upgrade to the power plant and finished with either a Totem mask, Death Mask, or a spirit helm. They cast a very frightening visage on any battle field
(2+/5++ Hardened Armour, Relentless, +2" charge, may not run/GTG)
*Iron Bound Armour Iron bound armour is the result of tinkering by the legions Astartes, over time brothers will add hardend tungsten and adamantium plates and replace parts from various marks of armour so it fits their style of combat perfectly.
(2+, Hardened Armour, Relentless, may not Run/GTG)
Taking simple massed forged tomahawks brothers started adhering grenades to them so they could get long more precise throws. It became so popular that the legion now mass produces them.
(same as F&K grenades but 12")
The signature weapon of the Iron Bears, it is incredibly versatile both at short range and in close combat. It's compact design makes for a seriously capable hit as all the force is delivered into a very small area. These are produced by a dedicated forge on the moon Hurona Minora each Demiurge and Iron Smith working closely with the legionnaire the weapon is intended for
( Strength +1, ap 4, Melee, rending 12" pistol)

Hardened armour automatically counts as being Void Hardened (see the Cold Void mission special rules on
page 173 of The Horus Heresy Book One - Betrayal) in missions where this is appropriate. Additionally failed
armour saves against template and blast weapons may be re-rolled. Units with Hardened armour reduce the
distance rolled for charges, sweeping advances and run moves by 1”. Any LA:IB unit with a 3+ armour save
may take Hardened armour for +25 points; any LA :IBunit with a 2+ armour save may take Hardened armour
for +45 points. LA:IB Independent characters may take Hardened armour for +10 points if they have a 3+ save; or +15
points if they have a 2+ save.
