I completely forgot we were attaching a lightning claw to it. That would mean adding a the cost of the claw to the 50 points, and that's too expensive at that point. 

 

In which case, I favor Option 2.

Likewise. I'd rather it just be a gauntlet.

Fine by me :) just need a name and it's good to go!

[Harbingers Relic] (50pts); This gauntlet allows the wielder to blast a coruscating arc of actinic energy, capable of disintegrating those nearby into little more than storm-blown dust. It can be used as a ranged weapon and it has a different profile depending on how far the target unit is from the firer. If it is not clear which of the profiles to use, the controlling player chooses.

Range; Up to 5" / Str 6 / AP 1 / Type; Assault D6
Range; Up to 10" / Str 5 / AP 3 / Type; Assault D6
Range; Up to 15" / Str 4 / AP 5 / Type; Assault D6

Hm, maybe I could use the relic in the upcoming arc in Second Son.

 

Anyway, with the relic simply needing a name, I'll shift focus. Quick slot recap: Primarch (check), relic (check), RoWs (1 done, the other saved for later), units (3 done with 1 planned), heroes (2 chosen), and wargear (1 set with 1 unclear). All of the required slots have been filled in or bookmarked for later, except for two freebie slots.

 

Blunt, did you want to use the 'Aetheric Lore'? (Grifft, what was this again?)

Aetheric Lore was an upgrade to let Independent Characters become Psykers (Mastery Level 1) with access to Fulmination/Divination. Its essentially a re-skin of the Word Bearers Burning Lore option, with different Psychic disciplines.

Yes I did, Sim.

For the relic I'm going with the Hand of Iroku.

It's partly taken from Iro in Avatar, as he invented lightning bending in that show.

Third character ideas, anyone?

I'm contemplating a Librarian character to sell the mystic side of the Legion, particularly with psykers in the main body of the Legion being reduced somewhat.

Could be interesting, but Raiden Athrawes is Mastery 3 boy, and Empyon is Mastery 1, and obviously, the primarch is up there. That said, we have decided to go with specific powers known for named Characters (I think? There was no dissent otherwise I was aware of?) which allows you to focus one way or another re character profile.

Why not a more down-to-earth character, a sergeant or a line legionary?

I've never known a sergeant to be a character in FW. A centurion-level character could work though.

What about that banner bearer Athrawes made for his army, Testuo was it? Maybe have him as a representative of the Legion's honour with his banner, granting buffs to any 1st Legion units around him as they're bolstered by the sight of the banner (maybe there's something special about it?)

Okay, I did overreach, but my point was that Empyon and Raiden have incredibly important roles that outlast the Insurrection. Why not a character who's more contained? I suppose your Librarian idea would fit, but you already have two psyker-characters.

Trying to get to that point.

Have a twin powerfist champion consul, who has far too many bionic bits because one should not always rely on magic because look where it got him? Little bit out there could be a loyalist hero?

I like the Techmarine Hero.

Perhaps he allows any vehicle he is in base contact with or transported within benefit from Samara rolls?

Goro Amakune
Master of the Forges of the First Legion, the Deep Delver


Amakune’s understanding of Madrigal’s archeotech inheritance was without peer within the ranks of the Legions, and perhaps beyond. While not possessed of any great brilliance as a leader, he possessed a razor-keen intellect and an ambition to recover his homeworld’s lost bounties, exploring its catacombs more thoroughly than any other. His knowledge of Madrigalan esoterica, combined with his expertise in Astartes wargear, made him personal armourer to a series of officers, ultimately to Icarion himself.

Such was Amakune’s breadth of learning that it went far beyond personal arms. His designs graced the Ist’s armour echelons, its gunship wings - most prominently the Ash Phoenix - and even its warships. In war he put his insights to potent use as an advisor to Icarion and his Sentinels, further amplifying his Legion’s deadliness.

Wargear
Artificer Armour
Servo-Arm
Power Axe
Archeotech pistol
Krak and frag grenades

Special Rules
Legiones Astartes
Battlesmith
Warlord: World Burner

Energy Savant
Amakune's mastery in the forging of energy weapons is all but unequalled within the Legions. If he is part of a force you may choose one Infantry unit with the Legiones Astartes (Harbingers) special rule; this unit improves the AP of any Volkite or Las weapons they possess by 1 for the duration of the game.

While I wait for Blind's input on Alexander, I'm back here. So, are you moving forward with the Forge Keys, Blunt? Also, thoughts on a statline?

Currently Goro is currently running a Centurion profile at my suggestion. And his The Forge Keys gives Land Raider Squadrons Implacable Advance.
