The Horus Heresy: Legiones Astartes - Age of Darkness Legions is the fifth army book released as part of Forge World's The Horus Heresy series of campaign and army books that takes place during the Horus Heresy. The Horus Heresy: Legiones Astartes - Age of Darkness Legions contains the complete Legiones Astartes unit profiles, special rules and wargear for a Legiones Astartes army to be used during a "Battles in the Age of Darkness" expansion game, with the exception of non-Legion-specific units and rules. This book contains the units that were released within the first five The Horus Heresy books produced by Forge World. Due to the release of subsequent works, this book will eventually be replaced with an updated version.
The Horus Heresy: Legiones Astartes - Age of Darkness Legions is a 131-page hardback book that collects together and updates the Space Marine Legions appendix entries from the first five of Forge World's The Horus Heresy books. It is intended to be used alongside its companion book, The Horus Heresy: Legiones Astartes - Age of Darkness Army List.
Included in the book are specific rules, units and special characters - including the Mighty Primarchs - for the Alpha Legion; Death Guard; Emperor's Children; Imperial Fists; Iron Hands; Iron Warriors; Night Lords; Raven Guard; Salamanders; Sons of Horus; Ultramarines; Word Bearers; and World Eaters all drawn together for ease of reference whether you are preparing for or playing a game of Warhammer 40,000, or planning the next addition to your collection.
As well as collecting and updating rules from previous books, this volume also introduces a new Iron Warriors Legion unit, The ‘Iron Circle’ Domitar-Ferrum Class Battle-automata Maniple. An advanced and deadly class of Battle-automata, the Iron Circle were created to the Primarch Perturabo's own design.
You will need a copy of The Horus Heresy: Legiones Astartes - Crusade Army List and the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook to use this book.
