In the Horus Heresy board game, a legendary battle unfolds across the razed plains of Terra and in the frozen orbit above, 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 uses an innovative order and initiative system that forces each side to carefully consider the commands issued to troops. A dramatic, card driven combat system incorporates escalating damage, gives players the opportunity to allocate resources between attack and defense, and brings to bear the unique special powers of each unit type. The game includes more than 120 detailed miniature models 10 plastic terrain pieces 200+ cards Map of the war-torn Terra. Rick Nauertz, Sales Associate for Fantasy Flight Games, told TDmonthly, "Horus Heresy is an epic board game for two players set in the dark future of Games Workshop's preeminent Warhammer 40,000 universe."
