Horus Heresy Massacre

The Horus Heresy Massacre Campaign Day is less than 24hrs away. We are all working hard to finish up the assets for the day and we are starting to get quite excited to see what you guys bring with you. Who wants to see some teasers of said assets?

Tactical Objectives

We wanted a set of Tactical Objectives to push the theme and make the gaming even more intense. We have produced a series of Tactical Objectives with Horus Heresy gaming in mind that will be used on the day for each game in addition to the mission specific rules. Here is a peak at what we have come up with:

Horus Heresy Massacre

Target Reciprocators

Next up are the Target Reciprocators for the first game. The FW book says to use radio masts and the like but I decided to make something I could use for my Ad Mech army in the future as Tech Thralls and then kitbashed like crazy. With 18 to make they aren’t as varied as I had planned but they are a little wacky nonetheless:

Further Details

Horus Heresy Massacre – A Twelve Olympians Campaign Day

There is also an Event Page on Facebook which can be found here.

However, some details can be seen below.

What to expect from Horus Heresy Massacre

At our campaign days, you will get to play three games over some purpose-made terrain against themed armies derived from Forge World’s Horus Heresy campaign books.

There will be prizes available for painting, gaming and the most bloody, meaning there is something for everyone to strive for. Prepare your Legiones Astartes to unleash Heresy or to save the Imperium of Mankind!

Army restrictions

Games will be played with a 2000pt army list – This list must be constructed using any of Forge World’s Horus Heresy army lists. Army list restrictions and amendments can be seen below:

o   Army lists must be Battle Forged

o   Any FoC from the Forge World Horus Heresy rulebooks may be used.

o   Lords of War can be taken but must not equal more than 25% (Yes that means anything under 500pts is allowed). Please note that if you use the Onslaught FoC the cost of two LoW must not equal more than 25% of your list when combined.

o   Only those Primarchs present on Isstvan V may be used. This covers Horus Lupercal, Fulgrim, Lorgar, Konrad Curze, Perturabo, Angron, Mortarion and Alpharius for the Traitors and Ferrus Manus, Vulkan and Corax for the Loyalists.

o   Any unit that has the Scoring rule for one reason or the other given in their army list entry in a publication printed before 7th edition Warhammer 40,000’s release are treated as having the Objective Secured rule.

I am Zeus, primary contributor to the site and co-owner of Fifty Shades of Wray, oh I am also God of the sky, lightning, thunder, law, order and justice to name but a few of my concerns. Having been playing tabletop games and painting miniatures for most of my life I have a wealth of information borne from success and from the bitter experience gained from my mistakes in the hobby. If anyone has any questions about the Twelve Olympians or the hobby in general I am more than happy to discuss them with you.
