Come get the latest rumors doing the rounds today on the Horus Heresy starter set everyone is waiting for!

“Can’t remember where it was in the old thread (or possibly another forum), but I believe it’s been rumoured that the box is themed around Phall, with Imperial Fists versus Iron Warriors.
I’ll see if I can dig out a link to where I saw that.
It is noted that the forces are asymmetrical; themed around a boarding party and defenders.”

… Also the contents rumours are slightly wrong. The forces aren’t an exact mirror of one another. One force is a Pride of the Legion style force. Some might even call it a boarding party… The other is based off normal Tac. Marines.
As for the ship name, I don’t think the game is based on this particular ship, but I’d go with the “Tribune.” Or one of the other warships in that warzone anyway.
I’mageek writes:“Imperial Fists, if it is set at Phall.”
“Ding ding, we have a winner.
If I remember rightly the box has around 44 models. Including 3 Mk4 boxes, terminators, cataphracti and the two characters.”
