Horus Heresy games can be big, much bigger than normal games of Warhammer 40,000. The units can be pretty big too. In the Space Marine Legions, Tactical Squads can include up to 20 bolter wielding Space Marines!

Units of 20 Space Marines can make a real mess of your opponent, and they form the heart of your army, so today we’re releasing 20 man Legion Tactical Squads for each of the 18 Legions.

 

Each Legion Tactical Squad includes 20 plastic Space Marines in Mk IV Armour, 20 resin Mk IV shoulder pads for your Legion, 10 resin Legion heads and 5 resin Legion torsos. Everything you need to personalize your unit and make a full 20 man Legion Tactical Squad for £90. As they love to be different, the Space Wolves Legion Tactical Squad does not include heads, and is £80.

If you’re not sure how to get started and pick your Legion, we’re here to help. Take a look at our new Getting Started with The Horus Heresy page, it’s full of useful information on the Legions.

Word Bearers Legion Tactical Squad: £90

Tactical squads are the mainstay of the Space Marine Legions and the force by which the Great Crusade reconquered much of the galaxy. Armed and armoured for battle in the harshest of environments the Legion Tactical squad is a highly flexible infantry unit, able to attack or defend at will, assault heavily fortified positions and take and hold strategic objectives. Tactical squads were employed by all eighteen of the Space Marine Legions, and usually as full squads of twenty Marines.

Channelling dark, primal energies that few truly understand, the Word Bearers Legion use forbidden lore to turn the power of the warp itself to their will and bind its denizens to their cause. Once the bearers of the light of the Emperor to the lost worlds of humanity, the Word Bearers have fallen far and fast. It is rumoured that the whispers of their High Chaplain Erebus started Horus on his path to Heresy, though the true extent of their new found power was not seen until their devastating assault on the Ultramarines Legion at Calth.

This multi-part resin and plastic set contains the components necessary to assemble a twenty-man Legion Tactical Squad in Mark IV power armour for the Word Bearers Legion, including twenty resin Word Bearers Legion MkIV Shoulder Pads, ten Word Bearers Legion Heads and five Word Bearers Legion torsos to mix throughout the squad. The kit also includes an impressive selection of optional weapons and wargear such as combat blades, ammo packs, holstered bolt pistols, frag and krak grenades and several weapon options for the squad sergeant. Supplied with twenty 32mm round bases.

Imperial Fists Legion Tactical Squad: £90
