What Do Salamanders Do In Horus Heresy Legions?

Vulkan cries over death of MK II armor

Horus Heresy Legions, the game about, well, Horus Heresy spent a lot of time getting  to the actual heresy. The whole closed beta was dedicated to the actions on Istvaan III and the surrounding events. We have now moved to Istvaan V, which means that loyalist legions are being introduced. First were the Iron Hands – and today, we have the Salamanders!

Last Chance To Buy Legions: Should I Shit My Pants?

Forums poster TTeribble had a great quote about Forge World newsletters: “Th evolution of the Friday email has been pretty great. Excited to see what new stuff is coming -> bored to tears by continual custodes releases -> excited to see what core HH SKU is getting dumpstered this week.” Previously, I wrote about the implications of Elysians going on Last Chance to Buy. Now, the company that put Solar Auxilia stuff on LCtB on the same day as it announced a new Solar Auxilia transport has struck again. Legion upgrade kits are, with zero fanfare or explanations, going on Last Chance to Buy.

Last Chance to Buy WTF

Last Chance To Buy Medics

Last Chance To Buy is Game Workshop’s way to boost sales of stuff nobody is buying say that this shit is being discontinued. Forge World was largely immune from that, gladly selling stuff that’s hella obscure. But a few weeks ago, the crimson hourglass of Last Chance branded Forge World paints and a huge part of their etched brass range. Thousand Son players were put on suicide watch over Angron Red, some people grumbled over brass, but that was it. Today, Forge World quitly announced Elysian Drop Troops to get Last Chance’d.

Forge World Catalogue 2018 surprises

I bought the Burning of Prospero box back when it was released and finished painting a 1000 point Loyalist Death Guard army ready last June. There was a small issue: no opponents to play with! But I have a friend who collected Forge World Custodians. With the hopes of playing the game some day, I bought the Age of Darkness rulebook when it came out. With it came the Forge World Catalogue 2018. It held some surprises.

My Age Of Darkness Rulebook Is Here

No, no chance of that getting played any time soon.
“You think he actually intends to play with us, brothers?”

Age of Darkness is what Forge World calls their 40K spin-off set in Horus Heresy. Naturally, everyone just calls it Horus Heresy. 8th edition dropped last year and Age of Darkness found itself without a rulebook. After all, the game was using modified 7e rules. This forced Forge World to release its own standalone rulebook. However, Alan Bligh, the lead writer for the project passed away from cancer a few months before 8e, and it was a real scramble to get it published. Took them half a year, but now we have a book. And here is my copy of Age of Darkness rulebook!

If you want to know more about what I think about the Horus Heresy ruleset, I have written an article about it!
