2.15 on a wednesday and 19.45 on Friday

Are you after what tournements? or What years?

Generally if you are playing a friendly game as long as your opponant says it ok you can use them. TOs have strict rules over what lists can be used so need to check with them

If its when in the timeline, they are generally between the start of the great crusade until Gulliman writes the Codex Astartes shortly after defeat of the traitor legions

You can use them for any game, however the high cost of most units (and the ridiculous amount of OH-SHINIES!) makes it more oriented towards very high point games. My standard Sons of Horus list is 3,000 points, and the lowest I'd probably go is 2,000 with it. Definitely geared towards Apocalypse, but you can play it in any standard 6 Ed 40K game.

If someone told me they wouldn't play me since I had a Horus Heresy list I'd tell them to fuck themselves haha. It's really no different than playing against any other codex.

Generally, the problem that people have is that they don't know the rules to your army. I wouldn't play against a person I didn't personally know running a Heresy army because either I have to accept everything he tell me about his army or get him to show it to me in his codex (or whatever the rules come in) several times per turn.

Q:
Are the armies and units in the Horus Her
esy books by Forge World meant to be used in
games against regular Codex armies
, such as say Grey Knights or Orks?

A:
While Forge World’s on
-
going range of
Horus Heresy
books and their game content are all
designed to use and be compatible with the Warham
mer 40,000 rules, they have been fine
-
tuned and
focused on playing battles in the milieu of the Horus Heresy rather than in conjunction with the
Codexes representing warfare in the 41
st
Millennium, and this will remain the case.
Basically, it can be used, but NOT designed for use in 40k settings. It's a 30k army and should be used against other 30k armies. It is imo, quite unbalanced (Way better) against 40k armies.

Would you kick me in the nads if I raised my hand?

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.
