Default Quick Heresy book question

I'm currently building an Emperor's Children warband (63rd Company, pics in my DA account if anyone's curious) and I'm considering some Terminators at some stage. At the moment, I'm leaning towards making them out of some Skorne heavy infantry (Arcuarii or Cetrati) but I'm wondering if we're going to see any interesting Emperor's Children Terminators any time soon.

So, question to those who have the Horus Heresy book- is there an Emperor's Children Terminator unit mentioned like the Deathshroud or the Justaerin? I know there's an EC unit called the Phoenix Guard or something like that, but that's it.

Sadly not.

Though some of the phoenix guard were equipped with terminator armour (See Fulgrim - Assault on the Laer Temple), the phoenix guard do not appear as a unit in betrayal. This means FW will probably not make them as a unit or release any cool models


(As a complete aside, in the VERY old fluff Justerean were originally an EC unit)

Not an ideal answer for me, but good news for Privateer! I'll have to see if I can get a look at those Skorne minis

I agree. We are still missing rules for alot of charaters and units in Betrayl from the 4 legions (like Garro) and I can't see why FW shouldn't include them later.
On the same subject we are also still missing almost all of the legion spefic gear, like phoenican helmets etc. which we have seen they are in the works of releasing, just take the last month of Death Shrouds and Justaerin terminators

So I would wait for the models to be released or convert my own from exsisting art / models.

Just my 2 cent.

The EC-specific squad is called the Palatine Guard, and they use duelling blades. Not Terminator-armoured however.
