The Emperors Children are infamous for their Noise Marines dedicated fully to the thralls of Slaanesh (who happens to be a big topic this week).

I used to do a lot of these faction articles where I looked at the artwork and or discussed the factions. I used to do these on Fridays, but I I am thinking Wednesday's might work best. I miss these, so here is the first one..... This week.... The Emperors Children.

Emperor's Children

The Emperor's Children, also sometimes known after their fall as the Lords of Profligacy, are a Traitor Legion of Chaos Space Marines who devote themselves solely to the service of the Chaos God Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure, though they were originally the Imperium of Man's proud IIIrd Legion of Astartes.
