Is there anything worse than when a friend suddenly turns their back on you? I guess if that friend then started trying to slice you up with lightning claws, that'd be worse. Or if your friend was a dreadnaught and now they want to step on you. That'd also be pretty bad. Well, that's just what happened to the Imperium of Man during the Horus Heresy in the 40k universe. Now, Games Workshop is taking you to those tumultuous times with the The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth board game.
That's right, this game is a stand-alone board game and not a "pre-expansion," of sorts, for 40k. Looking it over, it has more of a Space Hulk feel to it. Players are in charge of either the Ultramarines or the Word Bearers, fighting against one-another in close-contact situations through dense terrain on a hex game board.
Games Workshop has started taking pre-orders now over in their webshop.
