i have to admit im skeptical about this rumour, HH is doing very well for forgeworld, there entire focus seems to have shifted that way at the moment, which is cool, im not saying it isnt possible, just seems unlikely, that said this isnt the first time GW have dome something to point more fans towards FW, Appocalypse 1.0 really opened the door for forge world, before that people really didnt "game" with both ranges , from a buseness point of veiw it makes perfect sense, the iconic armour from that period of warhammer history are really well liked, almost all of it is cad desinged these days so they can easily crankout a load of marine models, marine sales have fallen lately as people are enjoying a real diverse set of quality alternative fully plastic non imperial armies for the first time and to be fair GW need something to fill the gap of Hobbit, so makes sense, how far they go remains to be seen, but as we have rumours of mechanium army in the works and kroot warbands i wouldnt count anything out at this point.
not to mention plastic HH models will be a huge FU to many third party sellers of non GW components, after all what would be your choice, a third party conversion or genuine GW plastic fully official minis with 100s of components on the sprue?

I'm still expecting something HH related, but not a Starter HH Box. For all we know, GW might turn around and do a "Black Box" re-release of Space Crusade at this point.

What do Curly and Moe have to say?

For the first time since Space Hulk was re-re-released (not the last one, the one before)
I am actually excited about a GW product, and I say this as someone with an entirely Corvus armoured army.....

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

The question I have, concerning what Larry posted on BoLS, is if that is the entire box set or the army contents for each side?

It's supposed to be a board game that will turn into a stand alone model release after six months according to Hastings (same for the Assassins). I don't see it replacing anything other than the basic, core Marine models for the Heresy, with FW covering all the specialized units, the shoulder pad kits and so on.

Time will tell but I'm setting a low expectations on the scope of this.

Allow me to join you there with some popcorn. As you say it's a Board Game, I'm starting to lean more towards the opinion that this "Horus Heresy Box" is infact a Black Box re-release of Space Crusade.

Y'know, this thing -

My expectations are a lot lower. Honestly if that does happen or not, my reaction would be Dull Surprise.
