Horus Heresy

This is one game I'm going to have to buy! Coming from a small town in the frozen wastes of Wisconsin getting Updates to or new models for 40K as a kid was always put off until we visited the "Big" city.  Needless to say that wasn't very often.

And when we did go the 2nd problem was that the friends and I always needed (read wanted) more than what we could buy.  16 years later and I have a wife, a car payment and responsibilities that still keep me from getting everything that I need (want) for 40K.   But the Horus Heresy board game is going to have to be one of next years purchases.

On the thirteenth day of Secundus, the bombardment began…

In the greatest betrayal the universe has ever known, the Warmaster Horus – once humanity’s greatest general, now corrupted by Chaos – has turned against the Emperor and hurled the Imperium of Man into ferocious civil war. The galactic conflict has risen to its climax. The Warmaster’s ruinous legions have assaulted Holy Terra itself, the Emperor’s seat. Here the fate of humanity hangs in the balance during the greatest military campaign ever seen.

In the Horus Heresy board game, this legendary battle unfolds across the razed plains of Terra and in the frozen orbit above. Deadly fighting ranges from the Emperor’s golden Inner Palace to Horus’s flagship, the Vengeful Spirit. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, two players control either fearless Space Marine legions or deviant Chaos Space Marines, mighty Titans, Imperial Armies both loyal and traitorous, and a fearsome array of other units, including the Emperor and Horus themselves....

Horus Heresy includes over 120 detailed miniature models including 10 plastic terrain pieces, and more than 200 cards to bring this sweeping conflict to life on a stunning map of the war-torn Terra.

Just reading that gets the blood pumping, wanting to prepare the mighty forces of the Imperial Army to defend Terra.  Now all I have to do is convince the wife and hide the money...



  1. You had to do it and point out how great this is. I sense more strain on the military budget at Chez Lambshead sigh.

  2. Sorry mate, I know the feeling. I mentioned to the wife last night over a few Glue Wein's and she didn't jump for joy. I guess that's gonna mean option 2 and hiding the money.
