It's actually a lot of fun. Maybe not HH based, but 30k definitely. If I'm not mistaken the Space Marine units use MkII power armor, so it looks different. As well as the weaponry.

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.

As Angel of Blood said.

The new plastic models will be coming in a boxed game from GW. One of the stronger rumours places the boxed game as set during the Calth conflict in the Horus Heresy setting.

Almost all of Black Library's releases now seem to tie in with whatever models they are releasing that month (which I don't like but that's another topic entirely).

Therefore, taking all that into account I would suspect that these two novels may tie into this new boxed game. That's what I was trying to say.

Synopsis for The Honoured and The Unburdened have been released;

Perhaps, if he can master his own bitter desire for vengeance...

Drawn into the haunted shadows of the planet's underworld, the Chaplain and his devout brethren must now put aside all other concerns and continue to wage war against the Ultramarines, no matter the ultimate cost.
So Captain Aethon from Know No Fear and Kurtha Sedd from Censured are returning. Aethon was a bit character so that doesn't interest me so much, but Kurtha Sedd was wonderfully creepy in Kyme's audio-drama, so his inclusion pleases me.
