- Betrayal at Calth was only the initial product in a Horus Heresy boxed game series.
- Look for the Betrayal at Calth rules to reappear in future additional similar boxed sets.
- These further boxed sets will expand the Betrayal at Calth ruleset and take gamers to other locations and pairs of adversaries set in the Heresy.
- The second boxed game will make an appearance sooner than later this year (2016), based on the white hot financial success of the initial Betrayal at Calth product.

Strengths and Weaknesses
As I mentioned earlier the biggest weakness is one shot can destroy any dreadnought. The melta bomb is also really bad news which bypasses Ceramite Plates. They are also slow. The good news is these cons can be mitigated to a strong degree if yours willing to invest in the right transport which brings us to our next subject…
How to Deliver the Dreadnought
If you go big then you go strong. A basic drop pod is the bare minimum standard required to get them where you need them. My philosophy is in for a penny in for a pound… Lucius pattern drop pods, the Dreadclaw and Stormraven are your best options. The beauty of the latter two transports is they are both flyers and can deliver the dreadnaught directly into melee.
I often run two Mortis pattern Contemptors with the dual Kheres assault cannons, both riding in separate Dreadclaws, for my 30k Sons of Horus army. You can take them in a talon which means they both arrive the same turn. They seem to always do something spectacular.
Chaos Contemptor – Extra armor – Heavy conversion beamer – DCCW with plasma blaster – Havoc missile launcher – Dedication to Khorne
He is not cheap but he has never failed to impress and has won many games for me. He actually does not require a transport due to range of his primary weapon.
Leviathan – Siege Claw (inbuilt meltagun) – Storm cannon – Armored Ceramite
The Raven Lord has finally been released by Forge World and he is rocking!
I will be getting one for sure.
|Close up of Salamanders Sheet|
The decals sheets run £16 or $22.80. The brass etch is £11 or $15.70.
Why is the brass etch so much less than a decal sheet? I have to say $22.80 for a decal sheet is rather steep.

New Alpha Legion Previews

Horus Heresy Volume VI - Retribution
-Will be available from the Horus Heresy Weekender
-Rites of Wars for Blood Angels, Dark Angels, White Scars and Shattered Legions. Possible new Rites for certain legions
-Tylos Rubio is being worked on right now by Israel
-No characters/units for new legions
-There will be a Meduson character that can be used as a HQ for all Shattered Legion armies. As he is so close with the Raven Guard and Salamanders he can be used in different army lists with the alternative Rites of War
-Certain equipment will be mentioned for each legion such as multi plasma arrangements for the Dark Angels and a special Glaive hand to hand weapon for
the White Scars.
-The Keshig will be upcoming for White Scars as well as a Bike squad (but not this book).
-A new bike has been finished by Blake.
-Mastodon and Stormbird will appear
Further info we have also found out:
-Darren Parwood is working on a new knight (A Heavy variant - Castellan like).
-A new air field display board is being worked on / planned which will feature the new Stormbird and Thunderhawk Landing pad tiles, which is not being released until the Stormbird is finished (which is apparently so big it might go through the tile!!).
Stormbird is currently in printing production. Possible first appearance at Weekender

Crusade Imperialis Red Book
This will contain all the army lists from Solar Auxilia, Militia and Warp Cults as well as Knight Households. Simply put - everything that does not already have a Red Book available. No planned changes, may have a few rules tweaks but probably not any points value changes. The new Knight chassis' like the Warden will be included as well as the up-to-date wargear like the Gatling cannon.
Legion Crusade Red Book
This is going to be a straight re-print with the latest units like the Leviathan, Xiphon, Damocles Command Rhino etc added. No points values changes as FW are happy with the points values but some units may have added rules or abilities to reflect their higher points cost.
Istvaan Campaign Red Book
This book will see the biggest changes. Several Legion-elite units are having rules tweaks but not points value changes, as they are under-performing compared to newer units. Units like Phoenix Guard and Justearin are top of the list for changes. The original four Legions from Betrayal are also having some of their Legiones Astartes rules tweaked but not massively changed. Emperors Children for example are going to have more advantages if they charge in assault whilst Sons of Horus are having Merciless Fighters changed. The SoH rule has gone through a lot of changes of which one possible change could be bonuses with certain weapons like pistols and other weapons not mentioned, at short range. I didn't get details for other changes.
No collectors edition coming. Contains lots of Rites of War of which loads in other threads has been written. One detail on the White Scars RoW is that it will focus on bikes and other quick units. The other WS RoW is shared with the Shattered Legions and represents some of the tactics of the WS legionaries thrown out by Jaghatai for supporting Horus - these tactics are then picked up by "dodgy" Shattered Legion forces.
Forge World is effectively being divided into three parts all overseen by Tony Cottarel in an Emperor Palpatine-esq way (in my mind at least). One section is led by Alan Bligh and will continue producing all the normal 40k, 30k and Age of Sigmar that we are used to. Second section is led by Andy Hoare and is focusing on the traditional specialist games that we would recognise from the past like Necromunda, Blood Bowl etc. The final section is going to focus on Lord of the Rings. Each section includes the manager and three developers.
In terms of models, there will be a core focus in plastic in the starting box sets that will be designed by the SG department and then manufactured by the main Studio. Blood Bowl is currently in development but mentions were made about Adeptus Titanicus coming back to its roots of a Titan vs Titan game set in the heresy and additional Necormunda gangs made in resin. All of this is still in very early days of development and chat. The new department opens officially on the 18th January.
One final point is that the main GW Studio is not going to develop the Horus Heresy / Age of Darkness as that it staying within FW. This may include further plastics however as FW may be branching into plastic manufacture in the future as mentioned with the traditional specialist games above.
Imperial Armour 16
This is Red Scorpions with Ad. Mech allies fighting Tau on an abandoned Forge World. The Red Scorpions will have lots of Legion equipment like Leviathans and Kharbydis Assault Claws with 40k rules while the Ad. Mech will have a lot of the 30k vehicles ported to 40k without Volkite or Battle-Automata. Mention was made of possible resin Skitarii upgrades.
Corax looks much better painted and close up than he does in the pictures as do the new Raven Guard assault troops. The Ordinatus has been modelled with a volcano cannon and to my mind, looks better for it. The Warlord is getting new weapons - a plasma weapon and a siege claw with an inbuilt Vulcan Mega-bolter in the same way as the Contemptor CC weapons. Head hunters appear to be upgrades as opposed to new kit but it does confirm they only have combi-bolters. The Thousand Sons upgrades look great painted and the metallic FW scheme looks awesome "in the flesh". Can't wait to see this scheme on vehicles.
This is confirmed for later publication this year. It has been confirmed as Prospero so get your flea powder ready for the all the VIth Legion froth that is going to emerge. Personally, I want to see Sisters of Silence and Custodes models.

No big reveal either (unless it was blood bowl)
The shopping bit had a bunch of older kits and books for half price.
Corax looks lovely in person, paint job seems a bit off with pure black eyes, just looks unfinished.
Dark furies are ace in person, a friend bought them and gave me the bodies/legs for my blood angels.
Blood bowl minis look really nice.
Russ is the next primarch, with magnus being next, both this year. Inferno is aimed to be out late this year.
Signus book might not be book 8, as book 8 may be calth part 2. (Sad face)
On the game side, eisenhorn is based directly on the first book but they've opted to streamline it in places and instead use data cards you can read to cover them (autopsy scene was specifically mentioned)
There was apparently some kind of special game related reveal but I never saw anything for it.
Warhammer total war looks pretty good although they didn't show any actual combat.
There you go and thanks to all the wonderful news sources. Make sure you read the Battle Bunnies blog and join Heresy30K forums. THE forum for Horus Heresy gaming!
Here are some tasty Horus Heresy Rumors from my friends at BoLS.
Of course take them all with a grain of salt, but these come from BoLS directly, not from some rumor monger.
