Horus Heresy Artbooks

Around 10 years ago a Horus Heresy CGC was licensed by Games Workshop. I have a set of the Loyalist (I prefer Gullible) forces and the Traitor (Enlightened seems more apt) forces.

In conjunction with this was a series of four A3 artbooks that captured the illustrations from the cards, creating a record for us HH nuts.


I have these four artbooks and I am happy for any of The Heresy Edition gamers to borrow them to get a fuller appreciation of the Legion they are building.


I'll bring them along when I visit Vermintide tomorrow so that people can flick through them. The artwork is excellent and includes quite a few John Blanche pieces .


I particularly like this Death Guard piece showing them in a corrupted version of Mk III Iron Armour

  2. I love how the Emperor is so awesomely kickarse that even his withered husk of a corpse is enough to smack the four Chaos Gods into the ground every time they turn up, as well as keeping Gork, Mork and every other deity around in their rightful place.

    He's still an idiot though. Just an extremely powerful one.

  3. Who won the Heresy?

    Now there's a question with no easy answer.

    1. I think the answer is clear, but it certainly met the definition of a Pyrrhic victory. Another win like that and the Imperium is gone.

      Unless you want to get all Tzeentchian and say that it's all part of the Chaos plan.

  4. Why are Dwarf players such Imperial sympathisers? Is it the semblence of order, of someone in charge or the lack of independent thought?

    1. I always thought Chaos lackeys were the ones shackled to a one-dimensional creed, with nothing in their minds other than blood, pain, intrigure or rot. I don't see the Chaos Gods as being particularly open to employee feedback or open discourse on their religious doctrines. I bet there's no 360 degree reporting in the Warp.

  5. I guess they find it difficult to make common ground with an upstart little son with daddy issues...

    IIRC the puppet Horus dies at the hands of the emperor, and according to what Magnus was told by Tzeentch, he was second choice anyway.

    Poor Horus, always living in the shadow of greater beings...

  6. If you could scan and upload any Night Lords imagery you will have eternal gratitude and potentially cake...
