From Forge World:

Word of Horus’ treachery has escaped Isstvan III and now the Legions loyal to the Emperor mobilise to make Horus, and those who follow him, account for their crimes. However, the depth of the betrayal is yet to be fully revealed.

Illustrated in full colour, The Horus Heresy Book Two – Massacre contains extensive background information on the dark deeds unleashed by the Traitor Legions upon their Loyalist brothers at the titanic battle of the Isstvan V Dropsite Massacre. Also within this book are detailed the histories of four new Legions which took part: the Iron Hands, Salamanders, Night Lords and Word Bearers, and an extensive campaign system so you can play out their battles on the tabletop. This 290 page book also includes additional entries for the Space Marine Legion Crusade Army list presented in The Horus Heresy Book One – Betrayal, as well as game rules for the Primarchs of the four newly described Legions, super-heavy vehicles and special characters featured in the story.

Lavishly decorated, this book is leather bound with inlaid metal detailing and foil-blocked page edging, and also features metal cleats to the corners of the book’s casing impressed with the Imperial Aquila. This book is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 18th October. More news on The Horus Heresy Book Two – Massacre can be found in the Forge World Visual Feed, where writer Alan Bligh discusses what you can look forward to in the new tome.

You will require a copy of The Horus Heresy Book One – Betrayal and the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook to use the contents of this book.


Erebus & Kor Phearon

From Forge World:
Erebus was once the High Chaplain of the Word Bearers and venerated the Emperor as a divine being. When the Emperor chastised the Word Bearers for worshipping him, Erebus’ drive for spiritual knowledge led him into the welcoming arms of the Ruinous Powers and through their guidance he planned the downfall of the Emperor and all he had wrought.

Along with Erebus, Kor Phaeron has the ear of his Primarch and, more than any other individual, is responsible for Lorgar’s nature as a seeker after the truth, wherever that may lie and whatever terrible secrets it might reveal.

The latest additions to our Horus Heresy Character Series, Erebus and Kor Phaeron, designed by Edgar Skomorowski, are two multi-part resin kits with two scenic bases that can be combined into a single scenic diorama. Each individual is resplendant with fine details, from the runic script carved upon Erebus’ head to the intricate lightning claws of Kor Phaeron’s armour. This set is available to pre-order now and will be despatched from Friday 18th October. To see a video of Edgar talking about how he designed these infamous characters, click here.
