Games Workshop has begun taking orders for a Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth board game. Not that the previous namesake board game, published by Fantasy Flight in 2010, was short on plastic figures but this version, direct from GW, is more of a traditional miniatures combat game played on a modular board.
Included in GW’s Horus Heresy are 38 miniatures (a Captain, a Chaplain, a Contemptor Dreadnought, five Legion Terminators, and 30 Legion Space Marines), four double-sided boards, a book of rules and scenarios, command and reference cards, various tokens, and 12 custom dice (taking a lesson, it seems, from FFG).
The game sees two groups of Space Marines (Ultramarines and Word Bearers) duking it out in the restricted space of the caverns under Calth.
Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth is priced at $150 and ships November 14th.
