Horus Heresy, Hooooooo!!!! Teaser Video (Updated)

YES! The rumor has been confirmed, FW is in fact doing the Horus Heresy!!!%*_T%!*$%(!)#%* %RJFJ!(^_$!!! One word, FW, make this happen: Primarchs!!!!!!

OK, so yeah, a little excited for this. My favorite (most people’s favorite) part of the 40K mythos is coming to life. FINALLY! This will be like printing money, it’s going to be red hot.

All of the old school Marks of Armor, vehicles and such was all gearing up for this. With the success of the HH novels, I think it was inevitable that this was going to come to pass, it was just a matter of time.

And that time has come! I can’t flipping wait! FW, please or pretty please give us Primarchs. I honestly don’t even care if I can use them in the game (although that would be best, of course) just give me some bad ass models I can paint and display in the store. DO IT!!

So now the hard part: waiting.

What are you guys most excited for with this upcoming release? Me? Night Haunter! Ah man, I want to have that model to go with my Night Lords. Angron would be awesome too, to go with my World Eaters.

This comes to us via Fait 212

With the announcement of Forgeworld releasing a Book 1 of the Horus Heresy this fall, it was nice to get a glimpse at what is on the horizon. Multiple books are scheduled, as many as 8, with the first book featuring the Luna Wolves and Dark Angels and expected for an October Release.

Please remember that these are rumors.

via a Faeit 212 “must remain anonymous source”

I was talking to                        about it and they said that it would be several books not one (one said 6+ another said, “yeah, 8”), the first of which begins after “A Galaxy in Flames” in terms of Time-Line, so there will not be rules for the Legions before the heresy (i.e. Loyalist Luna Wolves/Sons of Horus, Death Guard, Emperor’s Children).

Each book will focus on a specific thread of the campaign toward terra, culminating in a final book which will be the battle for terra itself.

Books will contain expanded fluff for the 2-3 Legions contained within and campaign rules for playing out a particular series of battles with “benchmark” missions that are historic.  Think the Badab war campaign.

It is being worked on congruently with Imperial Armour and will not delay or impact the IA series.

There will be new rules for the Legion standard, and will not use “Legion Tactics” (ala Chapter Tactics) variation based on special character, but will instead be edited in some way based on simply nominating the Legion you’re using.

The current forecast for models will be upgrade packages — specifically shoulder pads for the various legions and special characters.  These special characters will all be unique and new, and not those from the Black Library series. 

Primarchs will be featured and will have models, but are apocalypse only.

The first book is expected for October and will feature Luna Wolves and Dark Angels in terms of fluff and models, but no word on what campaign it will involve.

Anyway, here’s the video:

    They’ve already confirmed there will be primarchs. They’ll only be available in Apoc though. And with the books ending at the Siege of Terra, looks like it’ll be quite a wait for Dorn 🙁

      Hey, but look on the bright side, you WILL get a Dorn! Awesome!

      Where did you see the confirmation of Primarchs? I must have missed it.

        Naftka, I think. I guess they talked about it at Games Day or something.

        • Reecius July 29, 2012 3:17 pm #

          Yeah, I tracked it down. SOOOOOOOOO AWESOME! Can’t wait.

          • Son Of Dorn July 29, 2012 3:27 pm

            I just hope the models/rules for Primarchs live up to everyone’s expectations. I’d hate to get Dorn and find out he’s on par with Lysander 😛

          • Reecius July 29, 2012 3:49 pm

            So true! Haha, but I bet if anything, they’re OP. Seeing as how they’ll be Apoc only, I bet they are crazy powerful!

          • Son Of Dorn July 29, 2012 11:48 pm

            Either way, we’ll know before Christmas 🙂

    Forgeworld has reluctantly decided to start printing vast quantities of money.

    • Reecius July 29, 2012 1:29 pm #

      Hahaha, well said! So true.

    I MUST have a pre heresy, pre dreadnought Bjorn the Fell Handed… and a Russ… I wonder if they’d ever have a crack at doing a model of the Emperor? Pretty daunting task!

    • Reecius July 29, 2012 2:36 pm #

      I agree but if anyone can pull it off, it’s Forgeworld!

      The rules would be simple for him at least. All stats 10, 2+rerollable inv save, all attacks cause instant death and everyone within line of sight for his side gets +2 to all attributes and weapon profiles. Costs 3000 points…..

    Absolutely awesome, have been trying to get a model of Lion el Johnson on ebay for a while, some foreign modeller already made all the primarchs but due to legislation sold them with alternative names. Are they making custodians? will def be buying the Eisenstein if made!!!

    • ScouseMatt July 30, 2012 10:43 am #

      Custodians? You blew my mind. Be so awesome to take a few of them as allies… gold jetbikes ahoy!
