This book contains the unit profiles 65 units, from Command units and Troops, such as Legion Tactical Squads, to vast fortifications and devastating super-heavy units like the Stormbird, each available all Space Marine Legion armies including new units such as the Legion Jetbike Sky Slayer Support Squadron.


Collecting together all of the unit profiles and special rules for Space Marine Legion armies from the Horus Heresy Books One to Six, along with the full Battles in the Age of Darkness gaming expansion rules, it allows you to carry something lighter to your games than the weighty tomes of our main volumes, and is intended to be used both as a resource for consulting and collecting your armies and as a handy reference during play.

This book is intended to be used alongside its companion book – The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Age of Darkness Legions – in which you’ll find special rules and wargear for individual Legions, as well as unique units and unit profiles for the mighty Primarchs.

~Have at it folks!

  • Prisoner 42

    Well that sold out quickly.

  • ZeeLobby

    Not made from baby seal leather… pass…

  • blackbloodshaman

    Havent they already published these lists before?

    • CMAngelos

      The Crusade Army List was several years old. This is a re-release with updated units new units and supposedly everything that has been released thus far.

      • Barty

        And at least 1 new unit

  • Severius_Tolluck

    So I like how they sell cheaper then a standard codex, Even the digital ones are like 35 US dollars, I guess they figure they will more than makeup for it in costs of models T-T

    • Mr_Pickles

      that and the fluff books, those things use to be over $100 US.

  • OldHat

    Please fix the Cerberus, please fix Assault Marines, please fix Destroyers! Come on, FW, don’t let us down!

  • Alpharius

    I’m both pissed at the black books being sold out and also somewhat relieved that at least I didn’t miss out on anything other than the binding. I may wait a week or two to see how many changes they truly made. It may be easier to just print out copies of the changes and paste them in the old book like with the unique Legion rules. But 10 quid off a book I was going to get anyway means I’ll probably go ahead and get the plebeian red cover.

    I wish we had some spoilers on content!

  • grendal1989

    The real question is if these ebook versions will be updated as they update the hardcover books.


    As someone who hasn’t played 40k for years but loved the Horus Heresy Novels, is this a stand alone ruleset that will basically play like 40k but only space marines involved? No unique bonus for chaos vs imperial etc? Will it follow the same point system or are battles smaller?

    • A.P.

      have you been locked in a closet?

      No but seriously, same rule set but not so crazy mostly marines and Mechanicus at this point. Each legion has unique rules to represent their way of fighting and “rights of war” which dictate specific ways to build your force and that is the basis of an army. Fantastic game to play as it is really much more driven by an already established narrative and the battles have a more regal feel.
