In the long history of Warhammer 40,000 (from Games Workshop), and it’s very long, almost 10,000 years long, no event has enthralled the minds of lore-hounds like The Horus Heresy. Amidst a galaxy spanning quest to reunite the human empire, Horus the Warmaster, right hand of the Emperor, leader of tens of thousands of space marines, betrays his leader and attacks Terra. He is joined, not just by almost half of existing space marines from other armies, but by the very gods of chaos themselves, goading and guiding Horus and his black-hearted legions in their betrayal. Now you can relive this moment in Talisman: The Horus Heresy, a digital game coming soon from Nomad Games Ltd.
The Game is Talisman: The Horus Heresy and is a digital board game based on the Talisman rule system and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the cataclysmic events of the Horus Heresy.
Up to four players will be able to take control of one or more of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, these Warlords will form vast companies of Space Marines, battalions of tanks and battlefleets of Spacecraft. They are the most powerful beings in the Galaxy and their followers are legion.
The teaser video shows brief glimpses at various components that will appear in the game. More images can be found on the product page, linked above. If you’re a fan of Talisman or the Warhammer 40,000 universe, this game should be on your list to investigate. Expect to see it release some time next month for PC and Mac.
