Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth Battle Report

My mother always told me that violence doesn’t solve anything.

Peter and Will head back to the Warhammer 40,000 universe to play Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth by Games Workshop.

I’ve played only one or two games of Warhammer 40,000 over the years, but I did buy in right from the start with the original Rogue Trader rulebook and some first edition metal and plastic space marines. After painting and converting them into my own ‘chapter’, the Purple Haze (complete with winged hyperdermic symbol! I thought I was so clever), they’ve languished in my figure collection for decades.

So it’s good to drag them out again for a bit of marine versus marine carnage in the newish game Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth. I bought a copy of the game sans miniatures on Ebay, not wishing to paint up another few sets of marines (good call really, considering the new space marines have all recently undergone the scale creep treatment). Coupled with some old Dark Angels marines, I had enough to enjoy this fast-paced, straightforward board game, and it turned out to be a lot of fun.

View the battle above! I must apologise for the dodgy exposure: this will be our last attempt to film a battle report in front of a big glass window on a sunny day. Doh!
