The Horus Heresy: Inferno - Seminar

Howdy everyone =)

Last but not least - we have been waiting a long time for this ... I remember when they said it would be the book after Istvaan.

The Horus Heresy Book VII: Inferno! 













Space Wolves.


Thousand Sons.




Very early Leman Russ! Not his head - will come with his wolves!


New stories from Black Library soon for Space Wolves. 

Gav Thorpe is working on audio called The 13th Wolf. Different side of Prospero Burns this time.

Chris Wraight working on book on Leman Russ and Space Wolves during the Heresy. Involving one or maybe more Primarchs. Including some hes not got on with......

Graham McNeill is nearly done with Crimson King! Also working on more Magnus based stories.

Russ will get an axe and a sword.

Custodians are their own elite force, not like Space Marines 2.0! The Emperor saved the Custodes the best toys so look forward to heavy master weaponry. It's a highly lethal mobile force. They were designed to kill Space Marines if something goes wrong. 100% loyal to the Emperor, even beyond free will.

Playtest - 5 Custodians against 20 Tactical Marines, none of the Tacs were alive to fight back in combat!!! Not the full rules im sure - again, it's still playtesting.

Custodes will not have Rhinos and Land Raiders they will have their own vehicle types though and no heavy support but they will have an equivalent

Rules will come for Spireguard, possibly not models though. Might be a variant to the Solar Auxilia models.

Space Wolf Characters unconfirmed apart from Leman Russ, Freki and Geri.

Thousand Sons have a plan in their playstyle, not fully confirmed, still playtesting, be less of them, not usually in attritional warfare. Possibility of picking your option for Psyker-yness, that may improve equipment/weapons.

Tutilaries/Familiars will have above listing type (equipment/weapons).

Sisters of Silence will be a small allies list - not a "full force".

Sisters of Silence almost like Assassins hunting down all psykers.

During Heresy there will be limitation on unit types (they did not have access to certain things around this time) for Space Wolves, as their way of war gives them limitation to certain things. BUT! Space Wolves will have their own bespoke consuls and unit types!

Possible stories furthering the Thousand Sons that weren't on Prospero.

Space Wolves attack Arkhadia (Mechanicum world) - part of the campaigns in Inferno. This Mechanicum planet is targeted as he is associating with Magnus.

Arkhadine Mechanicum will have their own unique weapon and unit types, thanks to the help from Thousand Sons. This Cybernetica based Forgeworld will have its own Titan legion and it will have technology encouraged by the psychic aspects of the thousand sons. Which is why there will be multiple Titan Legion rules as there will be Legions sent to deal with them in Inferno.

Legio Mortis and a new type of Titan Legio (for Arcadia) but thats secret for now.

The seminar is over - what do you guys think so far about Inferno? Write in the comments below! :)

Regards,
Darko Thane, Lady Atia and the other Battle Bunnies!

    "Legio Cybernetica"

    1. Yup we will. The Legio Cybernetica will be the ones attacking the Arkhadine Mechanicum due to the fact they are using what the Legio Cybernetica believe is forbidden tech (an affront to the machine God).

    1. Because its Russ. Nuf said.

    2. I know it seems unfair. It would have been that Edgar would have been involved in the Primarch projects too, but he left. Don't discount the possibility that Israel is working on one in secret though. . . He did do Sigismund and Pollux. . .

    3. They are looking to get someone else working on Primarchs and character series but no idea who

  6. No Legio Astorum for TS? Canis Certex?

    1. He should be there. The Battle for Prospero is going the be HUGE!

      Delete
    2. Apparently there are no plans to do famous Titans. Canis Vertex will probably not be done I seem to remember them saying, as he is only there for a snapshot of the conflict.

      Delete
  7. Aarrghhh. I can't wait to read the SW stuff. It is going to be hard building things for them untill the book is out though.

  8. any imperator titan_ or keeping it for Moloch battle_

    1. No Imperator for now .... but I think we may get something different ;)

      Delete
    2. They will do other Titan type before an imperator (if they do it). Canivor and night gaunt were mentioned.

      To be honest it sounded very much like they won't do an imperator... Except in epic maybe.

      Delete
    3. Yeah as Col. Says. The Nightgaunt and Carnivore are being discussed. I think an Imperator is way too big to consider (but it wasn't discounted by Tony). Darren made the joke that it would be a Cosplay item. Tony did stress that it should be known that the Imperator was VERY VERY VERY rare.

    4. they also interesting said another scout Titan. They seem to be thinking of Titans for every price point!

    1. Shame you weren't there. Was a big big cheer for custodes!

      Delete
    2. I'll definitely be at the next one

      Delete
    3. Tony hinted in the closing comments that there may be another weekender at the end of the year...

  10. First comment didn't show up... weird. Looks like Inferno will be great for the Wolves / Sons / Custodes fans! I had been planning on making Sisters of Silence my primary Loyalist force ever since I was told they'd get models and an army list way back when Book III was released (back then, it was heavily implied that they'd get a full army list). Disappointed that they are going to be more like the 40k Assassinorum ally list, and now I'm kicking myself for doing a traitor legion on the assumption that my sisters could be a separate army (Not interested in building custodes or a second legion army unfortunately).

    1. Hi and welcome Jacqualine.
      I think they will get a full armylist in time. I believe that this iteration of them would be the equivalent of the Ordo Reductor in book 1. To be honest, if you look at what is going into this book there has to be somethings which lose out a bit. I'm with you though. Really can't wait for the sisters of silence.

      Delete
  11. I think these space wolves look so much better than the 40k counter parts.
    Were there any images for the custodes and sisters?

    1. No pics for these in the seminar. We may possibly see something during Gamesfest in May or the open day around July but imagine it will be drip fed through the year

  12. Who is the next primarch? Russ or other? Have you news about it. Thanks for all!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Russ next, then Magnus. The will be interlocking bases

      Delete
    2. Unless they are keeping something from us, it will be Russ before the end of the year. Corax would have been the Primarch which would have come out at this event but GW wanted one for the birthday bash (as Corax was ready).

      Delete
    3. Ive been holding odd getting a primarch but with Russ and Magnus I might end up with two!

      Delete
  13. Is there a better, more readable pic of the timeline anywhere? The one in the post is kind of blurry, and has a bunch of new entries.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Are they seriously gonna do an early Psi-Titan Legion? This sure makes it seem that way.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, there was no mention of Divisio Telepathica. It didn't seem implied either

      Delete
  15. Even though I'm not building alpha legion or imperial fists right now... It's disappointing to see that they previewed Russ, and yet nothing on Alpharius or Dorn. I feel for AL or IF players/collectors. Also the lack of characters and for IW and other legions. I know FW wants to keep expanding, but finish the core of each legion that is already in print.

    The core: Primarch, at least 1 character, at least 1 special unit, at least 1 terminator equivalent unit (ex: Gal Vorbak), Contemptor, upgrades (helmets, torso, shoulder pads, terminator shoulder pads), doors, etched brass, transfers.

    Please hit these marks before moving on to the next legion.

    1. Yeah, but you have to remember prospero burnt first. This should have been book 2.

  16. Custodes?! Well thats Xmas 2016 sorted then!! Can't wait!!

  17. I had so hoped this stuff would've been released before I got engaged. The fiancée won't be too thrilled with having Prosperine pyramids in the living room.

    My minis club at work has been waiting for this for so long so we could reenact the razing of Prospero. My wallet audibly cringed and my bank account dry heaved.

    1. How about Prosperine pyramids on the wedding cake!

    2. Lol totally agree. Russ and your Missus as cake toppers. Both have long hair!

      Delete
  18. YES!! YES!! YES!! I cannot wait for him! He is going to be epic!! Love this first stage so far!!!

    ReplyDelete
  19. A couple of questions. How long till Russ is done. What is the space wolves way of war? Because I thought it was close combat. What units would they have access to, because I am in the middle of making my Wolves. All i have so far is a Tactical squad, Heavy support squad, Assault Squad and Despoiler squad.

    1. They said late this year with Book 7.

  20. I am wondering if the new book of Chris Wraight will also contain scenes with Russ and the Lion ...

    1. They are hinting to it. I think they will be meeting up.

  21. I looked on this day with so much hope. I look back in despair. Oh Inferno, what have you done to the delicate balance of 30k?
