It hungers to burn, and when unleashed it knows no true master, it devours without reason or mercy, until it has consumed everything it touches. Such a fire is war. The third and final part of the Isstvan trilogy, this book details the aftermath of the Isstvan V Drop Site Massacre, and two other major battles fought between the Loyalist and Traitor Legions as the Horus Heresy swept out from the Isstvan System and into the wider Imperium of Mankind : the Battle of Phall and the Invasion of Paramar. Also featured are the background and game rules for the four Space Marine Legions covered in this book: the Alpha Legion, Imperial Fists, Raven Guard and Iron Warriors, and a Mechanicum army list, plus new campaigns and vehicles. This lavishly illustrated, full-colour, page hard cover book is leather bound with metal corner clasps stamped with the Imperial Aquila , and features a red ribbon bookmark and foil-edged pages as well as an embossed cover and spine. The following is a list of included unit rules that are able to be taken by all Space Marine Legions:.

Looks like lots more Mechanicus goodies. The 'Taghmata Omnissiah' army list has a dedicated transport section. Hoping this means more admech vehicles. So, I only plan on getting into 30k if there is a Thousand Sons Army list - can someone who already plays answer some questions? How many books are necessary to play? Are the complete game rules in every book?
I'm hoping I'm able to just buy one of Forgeworld's massively expensive books, lol. Thousand Sons are what I'm waiting on too. Unfortunately their book isn't released yet, but should be up next!
So lets all hope for T-sons around Christmas! The answer is that we don't know exactly until the Prospero book is released, hopefully later this year. That will be the beginning of a new trilogy, so may contain a whole army list for Thousand Sons and other legions. However, if this is not the case, you will need to buy HH Book 1 as well to get the Legion Crusade Army list the generic 30k marine list , or the Book 3 limited edition, which has a slightly updated version of the same list.
Or, you could wait and see what else FW release in the next couple of years, as another limited edition may appear with the same list, as well as Thousand Sons rules like what has happened with the Istvaan Limited Edition, which has rules for all the 12 legions released so far. Thanks Greylock. I'll wait and see. I may end up just using the money to do another 40k army and use future Thousand Sons models.
And that's not accounting for the fact that it's limited edition and are books of incredible quality, probably doubling GW's price. Providing you want all the things the set gives you, that's quite a 'bargain' ; This is consistent across all the books as well - with the Lord of War system, deathzone mortalis rules, multiple campaign and game systems and apocalypse appendices in most books you're effectively getting 30k Escalation and supplements like War Zones and Planetstrike all in one book.
As well as special legion rules and army lists. Yes, I am a massive FW fanboy, but with good reason. The quality that comes out of that place is incredible, if hugely expensive. Yeah, so later this year, Jagged. When I said next couple of years I was meaning the release of the end of the next trilogy Prospero, Calth, Signus and whatever cool stuff may come then.
Glad I could help Gue'vesa. It's basically between 40k and Apoc in scale and involvement. There's some variation in the 40k core mechanics in places, and the HH rulebooks also work as campaigns for the events in the Heresy itself but you can play it like a slightly bigger 40k without the scenarios and whatnot. Book 4 should be later this year and focused on the events on Prospero so there's your Xmas present for Thousand Sons Book 5 should be out around this time next year booo, my Dark Angels!!
Beyond that I dunno! I think they're well worth the cost. Well, that took a bit longer to write at work than I expected Well said Mauler. The game is a lot more balanced and you find that MOST people build their army's around fluff and what units they like the look of.
You very rarely find any power players and the community is generally a lot friendlier and always fun games. Check out heresy. It has a lot of activity and a friendly community. Yeah, I've not played any games yet but it's pretty clear from the rules that it's a more involved ruleset that attracts the more mature players.
Plus, it's usually the mature guys that can afford an all-FW force :'. Thanks for the additional info Mauler. It will largely depend on finding a group to play with, or getting my 40k friends who are all xeno-lovers to buy into the idea of a Xeno-free game. I'm waiting for the Sisters of Silence to drop.
That, along with TGG, will make my Sisters army ahhhhhhmaaaaazing. On this same topic- how interchangeable is 30K with 40K? I know it's based on the same rule set, but would I be able to play against a friend's Tyranid army in friendly games for instance? Would it balance out, or would there be problems? That's really the only thing holding me back I'd probably bite the bullet and go for it if I knew I could play more people.
I don't think I'll ever play a game of 30K, or collect the armies I'll be collecting the entire set, just for those reasons. Check out Battlebunnies. We will be at the Open Day so keep your eyes peeled Sunday :.
Dieter - I'd imagine that 30k vs 40k should be fair. The points costings look alright to me, you find that some units are slightly cheaper than their 40k space marine equivalent, but some are probably more expensive too, so it balances out in the end. At least, it will be as balanced as anything you get in 40k at the moment - probably moreso, if you consider, say, a Taidar list facing some Orks or Sisters of Battle or whichever army is considered worst at the moment.
I think that legions vs Tyranids would be a good match : One thing to consider is that it's the Horus Heresy so the system is designed mainly for marine vs marine combat, so things that are not so good against power armour are cheaper in heresy lists.
But overall I think it's fairly balanced. Ninja Crows - that'd totally be the name of my RG successor chapter :D. I want a kaban machine to put against imperial knights hh mechanicum novel. I am just one click away of getting into 30K. Really not sure yet what faction to take, but so far, especially after seeing the Horus model, I am tending towards Sons of Horus, also a nice army color to paint and the army has quite a lot of unique models released already.
I would kill for a exact release schedule for the next years, cant wait for more Primarchs to appear. Do not really know much about the Heresy, never read the fiction, but what would follow chronologically after Massacre in case of storyevents? I have already a Blood Angels 40k force that I could field as a 30k force with some IF allies but I have a hard time choosing opponents. Hard to choose. I would suggest to take a few old or second hand models and test several traitor paint schemes to see how it would look like with your skills.
I had a blast painting death guard and world eaters, no really found of what I've done with my Sons of Horus. To Miniwar Monger: After Massacre alot happens the legions become somewhat divided and there are loads of different battles. My gaming group doesn't play anything but Great Crusade or Heresy. Check out our blog - Battlebunnies. Thanks for your replies guys.
Kevin: Good idea Kevin. Khall : Thank you for listing the battles, totally gonna dig into them tonight. You got a sweet website there bunny! Really inspiring. So jealous you get to go to FW open day. If I d go there, I would love to pick up the Horus mini. Hopefully we soon will be able to order through GW stores.
Happy Gaming mates! Then Book 2, Massacre came out with my beloved NLs in it. Then the wife nixed the idea of me picking up the Drop Zone Commander Christmas Bundle, which was an awesome deal, on account if "You've already got too much Warhammer crap as it is, no new game systems! I wanted more details, so I bought Horus Rising, the first book of the HH novel series, and got hooked.
So far I've read up thru The Flight of the Eisenstein, but have stalled a little on account of workload, and needing to take a small break from novel reading, plus there's been a lot of chaosy goodness that's cropped up recently, so I've been a little distracted. I feell an itch at a certai place a real marine in power armor couldnt reach witrhout taking his gloves of. Lets call it an heretical itch. I d really like to get deeper into the Heresy stuff, but at the same time I dont want to read all the books, and further I am quite the reader and fear the books might come out pretty crappy in the end.
So id like to stick to the creme de la creme of the Heresy fiction. I d like to give em a shot. When are we going to see white scars. I can't wait to see what they do to them in 30 k. This is the only reason I don't have a 30 k army. With those spaceships artwork, I wonder if Forgeworld could release a HH book around naval battle and of course a few miniatures.
