It really is the time of Warhammer 30k. It seems we're always getting new things for the Horus Heresy, as opposed to furthering the adventures happening in the 41st millennium.

Back In The Future, a Review of The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth from Games Workshop

Games Workshop has a brand new stand-alone board game available.

Promethean SunThe Black Library is now selling copies of the Horus Heresy Promethean Sun hardcover. From their website:
The Great Crusade reaches a feral world known only as One-Five-Four-Four. The forces of the Imperium arrive to deliver the primitive natives from enslavement at the hands of the alien eldar.
