Prepare For War: The Battle of Terra Has Begun!

A view from the Horus Heresy Launch Event at the FFG Event Center

From far and wide they descended upon the FFG Event Center in order to be among the very first to play Horus Heresy, the brand new epic wargame for two players set in the grim future of Warhammer 40,000
All the boards were set for Brother Against Brother, the first of six included scenarios, which offers a fairly balanced arrangement of forces just perfect for new players. Our demonstrations began shortly after 6 pm as avid gamers paired off in turn to take on the role of either Horus or the Emperor at each open table.
Onlookers stood by listening intently as our demo team reviewed the components and core mechanics of the game. A few lucky customers even had the good fortune to be taught by the game's lead designer, Jeff Tidball!
Soon enough, the demo tables filled to capacity as everyone began to wrestle to determine the fate of all humanity. The final apocalyptic game wound down just as the Event Center closed its doors at 11 pm, at the end of a very exciting night.
If you were unable to stop by for the launch event, and you're within driving distance of Roseville, MN, check the FFG Event Center daily calendar for our next weekly open game demo of Horus Heresy. Otherwise, it's time to visit your local game store and choose your side in one of the greatest battles of all time!
Horus Heresy is a board game that pits two players against each other to recreate the most famous battle of Warhammer 40,000's rich history, in which the Warmaster Horus's betrayal of the Emperor comes to its climax. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, players control a fearsome array of units, including the Emperor and Horus themselves. Brother fights brother, and the universe hangs in the balance!
