New Horus Heresy FAQ Is Out!

Even if some sweating GW intern has rushed to take the article announcing it down, the Age of Darkness/Horus Heresy FAQ is still here! In it, you’ll find Magnus nerfs, clarifications on Augury Sensors, Super-Heavy tanks turning into tanks and Space Wolf Apothecaries taking a level of AWUUU once they join Gray Slayer squads.

Forge World in 2018: A Heresy In Review (Part 1)

Forge World is Game Workshop’s sister company for people who don’t think they’re burning their money fast enough. For many of us, it’s the last refuge of people who like Space Marines: the Age of Darkness ruleset is probably the only good thing to come out of 7th edition 40K. That said, 2018 was a horrible year to be a fan of Horus Heresy, Forge World’s flagship, standout game.

Friday Update In Horus Heresy Legions? What’s New?

Having moved past the Istvaan III phases in beta, Horus Heresy Legions is now fully immersed in the events of Dropsite Massacre. The new Legions have already been introduced. Now, it’s time to grind them to pulp – at least before the Traitors are added into the game. We can expect at least of pair events to be kinda meh as far as introduction of new stuff goes. However, they managed to sneak in some stuff today!

Horus Heresy Might Not Be Dead, But They’re Working On It

We have been hit by the plague of Last Chance to Buy, which removed a lot of Legion conversion kits. They killed off the MK II armor line entirely. Eventually, they cut off MK IIIs and MK IVs, which was the only logical moves, as we already have plastics for those. You could still get plenty of those in Betrayal at Calth and Burning of Prospero boxes.

Raven Guard Sneak Into Horus Heresy: Legions

The first Istvaan V event on Horus Heresy: Legion has ended, and so a new Legion is introduced. Raven Guards are now here to wreck everyone’s faces. As it was when Salamanders made their first appearance, players can pay Real Actual Money for a pre-built deck, while Raven Guard crate (3 RG cards, 2 cards you probably already have) has replaced the Sally crate. But what does this shadowy Legion do?

When Forge World Prices Make Games Workshop Look Sane

Today, Forge World finally made it possible for buyers to pay in whatever local currency they have. The caveat is that the new prices were set at a fixed conversion rate as decided by Forge World. This has lead to price increases: about 10-20% for Europeans, ~20% for Americans and around 30-40% for the Australians (which were already getting fleeced).
