Horus Heresy Army Construction

For this event each player may select up to three different 3000 point armies, which can be made up of units selected from the Core and Expanded Army List Profiles available in current Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – Age of Darkness Army book and via other Games Workshop publications. They do not have to be the same Legion, but you do have to stick within your faction.


During the event you will be deployed to different Battle zones on the Eastern continent of Episilon-Stranivar IX where your Commander will task you to perform certain tasks. To that end we recommend that you bring a force that is capable of defending and holding objectives, an offensive force that can attack a fortified position, and then a third force.


Each player’s army lists should be presented in a clear format with all relevant weapon selections and unit upgrades, any Rite of War and Warlord Trait in use and anything else that should be selected prior to a game, avoiding any extraneous information.


Please bring along 2 copies of your lists, 1 for your opponents and 1 for yourself to reference.


Optional Adeptus Titanicus and Aeronautica Imperialis forces

This event will also allow you the opportunity to play games of Adeptus Titanicus and Aeronautica Imperialis should you wish. Please note this is not essential and not required to attend the event. Should you wish to take part in either of these game systems the army construction details are outlined below.


Adeptus Titanicus Forces

During the event if yourself and your opponent would prefer there will be limited options to also replace one or more of your Heresy games with a game of Adeptus Titanicus. If this appeals to you then you can also bring along an Adeptus Titanicus force. We recommend using forces that do not exceed 1500pts and follow the standard rules for force organisation and game play to allow plenty of time to enjoy your game.


Aeronautica Imperialis Squadron Construction

There will also be Aeronautica boards available in the hall so that factions can dominate the skies above Episilon Stranivar IX. If this appeals to you then you can also bring along an Aeronautica Imperialis fleet.


The Points limit for this event is 120 points. Each player is required to write two squadron lists totalling 120 points each. Each scenario type from the Aeronautica Imperialis Companion has certain criteria for a force (for example the Duelling Aces scenario requires at least one fighter or bomber). Players should keep this in mind when writing the two lists to ensure they can meet each scenario's requirements with at least one of their two lists.


Squadron rosters should be presented in an easy to read format.
