Horus Heresy Betrayal Results

Overview

The first Horus Heresy Campaign day arranged by the 12 Olympians in association with Promethean Games has been and gone. From playing through the Horus Heresy Betrayal we picked up a lot of ideas for further events and ideas for better missions.

First and foremost I would like to thank everyone who attended the even and those who helped me run the day. The players let loose in some frantic, fratricidal mosh pits which were great fun to watch as they played out.

At the end of this post there is a gallery of pics from the day but before that let me introduce our award winners from the day.

Results

Awards

Best Gamer - Paul

Best Gamer went to Paul with his Salamanders

Best Painted - Jonas

Best Painted went to Jonas and his Iron Hands (more of them in a bit)

Most Heroic - Aaron

Most Heroic went to Aaron and his whirlwind.

With the Whirlwinds main weapon destroyed it still picked of his last scoring enemy with a pintle mounted bolter. Legendary!

The actual awards were made by Fifty Shades of Wray who managed to help out at the last minute and get something worthy of champions. They have some pretty awesome plans for the next event but for now these are what we presented to the award winners:

Final Standings

Now let us see just how bloody Isstvan III really was with some cold, hard facts:

The Loyalists won and the Heresy is over!!!! I jest.. some World Eaters showed up a little later and butchered the Loyalists.

The scoring system used combined secondary and primary victory point scores and we kept track of the points each player had killed during their games as a tie breaker… having seen these results I think the next event shall have an award for most bloody. It seems just as important as who scored the most objectives in the Horus Heresy context. Each player was asked to keep track of their favourite moment in each game which at the end of the day we used to decide the Most Heroic award. Given the amount of admin needed for this particular award I think Most Bloody would be a good replacement for this category in future.

Best Painted

All the attendees had made a commendable effort to get as many painted models on the table. In the end the Best Painted award was a hard choice between Jonas’ Iron Hands and Aaron’s Emperor’s Children. In the end Jonas’ Iron Hands won out. The deft use of transfers and some good old grubby metallics clinched it.

 Winner – Jonas’ Iron Hands
