No, though that's a good game too
I's a physical miniature game just like the tabletop 40k... now I'm pretty sure it's not just a board game. I think it's the same as a the tabletop 40k game, just with 30k era guys and equipment. I will post a link in an edit.
EDIT: For some dumb reason I can't seem to find specific info about it in particular, only the models themselves and rules. Which makes me think it's like a side kind of game from 40k with different models.
Another BIG 40k forum... I won't name it... has an entire area dedicated to the Horus Heresy rules, models, Tactica, ect. Which is where I saw it for the first time.
Right, you both seem to be getting confused.
Loken. You are talking about the Horus Heresy tabletop game that Forge World produce. It has all of its own miniatures, which can be bought through Forge World. It's based off the Legions, not chapters of course, as well as Mechanicum and Solar Auxillia. Being set in 30k not 40k, the armour and vehicles are all older. There are also rules for the Primarchs. Also has it's own rulebooks, several, all hideously over prices. But then the entire range is becoming hideously overpriced.
Now what Mal310 was talking about, when he said these books are to tie in with the new Heresy models. Is that Games Workshop are also now releasing Horus Heresy models in store and on the website, made from the regular plastic mold instead of Forge Worlds resin. Remember, FW and GW are slightly different, even if technically the same company. These models will be cheaper, but it's rumoured they will be a mini game, more like the assassins box set.
With that said. Let's get back on topic please.
