No Retreat Horus Heresy

Hello!

This weekend sees SN Battle Reports host the first Horus Heresy No Retreat in Gibraltar, I was lucky enough to secure a place at the event and I am really looking forward to it! The event is a weekend of  5 games with 2500 point armies. SN really go all out for these events and I have followed the 40k events that they have done in the past and they have all looked amazing! Check out the event on SN Battle Reports website.

The event invite arrived in the post this week and it is incredibly awesome!


All the participants received a personalised Oath of Moment  and a set of dog tags. Plus 3 SN dice.




I am taking my Sons of Horus First Company with me, With Horus leading 28 Justaerin and 2 Contemptors into battle. It is a very elite force but they usually pack a real punch and are surprisingly resilient.



The event will have a game from each round streamed live on the SN Facebook page. A schedule of the planned feeds is already up if you want to know when you can watch. They also have a selection of pictures of the tables that will be in use and as with everything they do the quality is really high and they look like they will be great fun to play on.

The SN team also have the next Horus Heresy No Retreat planned, so keep your eyes out for the opening of applications if you you're interested!

Happy hobby!

    1. He certainly is! He will be using his mechanicum which I really could do with some practice against as they are a very tough opponent and not a great match up for my list!

  7. It would be a blast if you did an after-action report with a few pictures. You are sure to find some incredibly well-painted armies over there, and it's going to be a great gaming exsperience. :-) Cheers.

  8. Darien, your Horus looks absolutely beautiful. He will surely cause many jaws to drop, and kill many loyalist scumbags as he does so. Ezekyle is jerking tears that he isn't alongside his Warmaster and all of those Justaeren. Have a great time and best of luck.
