The Horus Heresy: Massacre – Regeln für Legionen, Primarchen, Einheiten…

| 4. October 2013

Auf dem Gamesday UK wurde das neue Horus Heresy Buch “Massacre” vorgestellt. Forgeworld nutzt diese Releases natürlich hauptsächlich, um eine gute Begründung für neue Modelle zu liefern. Aber das gelingt dieses Mal ausnehmend gut. Im Folgenden fasse ich für Euch kurz die bekannten Fakten über das Buch, die Primarchen, die Einheiten und die Modelle zusammen.

via Forgeworld:

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. Click here to see a trailer for Book One.

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 can view a trailer for the book here.

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.

cybertheurgy
is pretty weird , its psychic powers .. without being psychic powers
 
heres what it reads as:
in order to successfully use the power , the cybertheurgist must take a leadership test . depending on the strength and difficulty of the power , a bonus or penalty may be imposed on the leadership value of the model making the test ( note that this is applied always to the characteristic value being tested, not the dice result )
if the test is passed , the power takes effect. if the test is failed , the power does not take effect .
if the test is failed and a result of a 12 ( double 6 ) is rolled , the power has both failed and gone awry . roll immediately on the cybertheurgy mishap table
 
[ cybertheurgy mishap table –
1-3 signal corruption , the target battle automata may only fire snap shots and fights with ws 1 in assaults for the next game turn
 
2-4 corrosive paradox . the target battle automata suffers a wound with no armour or cover saves possible
 
6 malifica
the machine spirit rebels and gains self awareness !
the battle automata is now destroyed for the purposes of VP’s and is no longer part of the controlling players force , if part of a unit , it is seperated and placed out of coherency with the unit
teh battle automata is still used in the previously controlling players turn , will from now on move towards and shoot at the closest unit unit each turn and then assault that same unit if able , both sides may now target the battle automata if they desire
 
it seems thallax augments are unique to thallax

    Zum Glück intressiert mich 30K überhaupt nicht, so muss ich kein Geld dafür ausgeben. Forgeworld sollte sich eher wieder auf 40K orientieren, vor allem dann auf nicht Imperiums-Modelle.
