Games Workshop has started taking orders for a new board game set during the days of the Horus Heresy. This time, we find the voracious Space Wolves against the magic and psycher-enhanced Thousand Sons. The battle for the 31st millennium heats up once more as the planet is bombarded, except for one area that’s been heavily shielded and must thus be attacked via a ground assault. Who will prevail in the Burning of Prospero?
The game includes six scenarios, creating a narrative story where the two factions are looking to complete certain objectives, either expelling the invaders or bringing whatever chaotic sorceries are afoot to an end. Like Betrayal at Calth, the models in the set are very highly customizable. There are extra heads and weapons that you can use to trick out your squads just how you like.
And if you want to add a bit more to your set, Forge World has released a model for Leman Russ, primarch of the Space Wolves. They have a deal over there where you can get Russ along with the box game, just as Games Workshop’s main site has all different variations of the set you can get with different extras.
