I have to say I am SUPER Excited!  For all of you guys who have never played a Heresy game or seen the  Legion Armylist, it is a fantastic piece of work.  One of the best designed and fun – flavorful lists in the entire gamesystem.  The real problem playing it has been the unwieldiness of carting around multiple high-priced HH campaign books.  Being able to throw the small “Legion Codex” in my bag with the army will make getting out and getting games only easier, and hopefully expose Heresy Gaming to even more folks.

Who’s in for this?
