Got it. I'll get that section written up soon. 

 

Also, since you're active, I'm going to give you the choice of the Loyalist Legion layouts for the exemplary battles. Do you want one big campaign or three battles?

One unusual evolution in Void Eagle tactics was the weaponisation of drop pods. After a recommendation from one Wing-Captain Shilon Zacao, who had been pioneered the tactic of orbital dropping tarantulae to secure landing zones, Yucahu invented the deathwind drop pod to clear initial drop points. While the drop pod had always come with some kind of armament, the deathwind drop pod completely sacrificed transport capability and carried several small missile batteries instead. Upon landing, the doors would blast off before unleashing a barrage of the local terrain. Although decried by some critics for its indiscriminate nature, the Void Eagles cared not. 

 

[I'm trying to remember, who did we give credit for the invention of terminator armour?]

I don't believe any of the Primarchs, canon or BotL, invented Terminator Armour in general, it was just sort of developed over time by the Imperium from the heavily armoured suits used by starship maintenance personal for working inside Plasma Reactors. In regards to specific models of TDA, I know we discussed that Nomus was heavily involved in helping design the Tartaros pattern in our universe, Yucahu had the obsolete Saturnine pattern suits refitted and modified to make the Saturators if that's considered a seperate pattern, as for the Cataphractii & Indomitus nothing's been said.

Fair enough, in that case, I'll drop one idea I had and continue working on the Legion Org.

Pionus played a role in getting Terminator armour off the ground.

It's alright. 

 

Anyway, what else should I add? I'm really struggling with this because Legion Orgs tend to talk about the actual Legion structure, not just what kind of units they specialize in. But, given the sheer amount of diversity among the Void Eagles, I really can't address that. 

 

For the Legion Command Hierarchy, I was going to compare the 2nd and 5th Great Fleets as an example of how the different officer corps looked. And then War Disposition is going to be straightforward.

 

Should I just end with the deathwind paragraph and move into Command Hierarchy?

I suggest taking a look at the SoH, Night Lords and AL sections if you have those. I'm home in a couple of days and will try and suggest stuff then.
