Ten thousand years past…
So, the Horus Heresy. It’s quite important to me as a hobbyist as it’s part of how I got interested in 40 (and 30) K. Therefore, when they announced that Forgeworld were releasing rules and models for the Heresy I was quite excited. Or at least I was until I saw the price! I can afford Betrayal, I just find that I don’t need a shiny, shiny book that costs quite that much, particularly as it covers such a tiny part (time wise not importance wise of course) of the Heresy.
Forgeworld is obviously on to a money maker here, and I know that what they produce is and will be spectacular, and I don’t begrudge them, or anybody who plays the game, a single little bit of it, it’s just that I caught myself working out what potential models there were in Angel Exterminatus the other evening (yes, I did fork out for the hardcover in the end) and I found that it was beginning to spoil the book for me.
Of course, whenever they get round to releasing rules and models for the Battle of Prospero I will probably cave in and, even if I don’t buy the rules, buy any pretty Space wolf models or upgrades that they happen to produce! I imagine that it won’t be for a while though, so my wallet’s (relatively) safe for now!
