A first look at combat in Horus Heresy

Fantasy Flight Games have posted a new preview of the Horus Heresy boardgame looking at the combat system in the game.

From their website:

We’ll explore how these card-driven mechanics make for a more exciting and challenging game in the coming weeks, especially with regards to long-term strategic play versus the short-term tactical rhythm of combat. Before we can dive deeper we need some context for how units are represented on the battlefield, and learn a bit about how they are put to use during the game.

Whether taking command over the collected armies of the Imperium or of the Traitor legions, you will have control over two types of troops: units and heroes.
