THE STORY
Ever since the dark days of the Great Heresy, the Iron Hands have a long and tortured history. Their years of suffering and war has left them hardened and believing in a brutal tenet – the flesh is weak. Heavily cybernetic, their flesh extensively altered, these warriors of the Imperium are more machine than man, cold in aspect as well as demeanour. Their methods of recruitment are harsh, their rituals arcane, their pride unshakable. So when a world under the protection of the Chapter falls foul of insurrection, the Iron Hands answer with fire and cold retribution. It matters not that Thennos is considered sovereign territory of the Adeptus Mechanicus, for the Iron Hands’ campaign is one of extermination. But there is something dark lurking within Thennos, a horror that defies the purity of cold logic and the machine, and offers something more, something ruinous…

Horus Heresy: Echoes of Revelation $17.50 (Audiobook)

DESCRIPTION
For more than two hundred years, the armies of the Emperor of Mankind fought to reconquer the galaxy – led by the superhuman primarchs, the Space Marine Legions brought countless worlds back under the rule of ancient Terra. Now Horus, once honoured Warmaster and favoured son of the Emperor, has been corrupted by the whispered promises of Chaos. At his command the Imperium is torn apart by a terrible and bloody civil war, the likes of which the galaxy has never seen… There are some who whisper that Horus’ rebellion was not of his own devising, but orchestrated by more sinister powers. While such thoughts are tantamount to heresy, they pale next to the notion that many noble heroes and champions of Terra are in some way blessed by a higher power still. Yet the war still rages across the Imperium, and all eyes now fall towards the Throneworld itself… This anthology CD features three short audio dramas following the half-understood destinies of some of the most important individuals in the galaxy.

~What are you picking up?

  • euansmith

    Have there been any details released for AoS: Skirmish beyond the price. I don’t get WD and haven’t seen any announcements about Skirmish yet.

    • orionburn

      Never figured out why some stuff stays way under the radar. When all the terrain was coming out for SW:A not a peep was said about those servohaulers and it’s an awesome little kit. Same thing with all the new AoS products. Heard something about skirmish but never any info as to what it would be about.

      • euansmith

        Those Servohaulers do look great and appear to be a nice source of conversion bits.

        • orionburn

          They are. I’m painting mine right now. It’s been a fun kit to build and a nice break from the norm. The set comes with a little scenario where one has to keep them alive and the other player has to blow them up. Building this set per instructions but want to pick up another one to get creative with.

    • pokemastercube .

      just guessing but i think it may be something along the lines of shadow wars or kill teams

      • euansmith

        I’m wondering if they are porting over the fan made Hinterlands, or have created something novel of their own.

        • EnTyme

          The creator of Hinterlands is going to be on Warhammer Live tomorrow to help demonstrate AoS Skirmish. He’s been pretty tight-lipped about Skirmish, but I’d say it at least borrows some elements from Hinterlands.

          • euansmith

            Cool!

    • Derek

      For a 10$ rulebook don’t expect much from it..

      • euansmith

        I would be happy with an A5 stapled book if it contained some clear and concise rules 😀

      • Graymantle

        With full AoS rules and a warscroll for every model they make being FREE, I think we can safely expect a lot from a $10 book. I feel like the Kill Team rules were priced similarly as well.

  • Dan Wilson

    Will be picking up the battle mat definitely…

  • Suave

    They’re supposed to stream AoS Skirmish on Wednesday on Warhammer TV on twitch. The only thing that has been advertised for Skirmish is that you are fighting for loot and glory. So maybe this is a reincarnation of Mordheim using AoS models?

    $10 book can have a lot of info assuming they’re using the same combat stats from AoS.

  • EnTyme

    Curious to see what the mausoleum looks like. I’ll never figure out why some things get “leaked” weeks in advance while others are completely secret up to the last minutes.

    • Alexander Lucard

      It’s a two pack of the old Garden of Morr set.

      • EnTyme

        Ooh. Neat!

  • My guess is AOS skirmish is about a half page or so of rules and the rest are scenarios. For $10 that’d be about right.

    • euansmith

      The fan made Hinterlands rules contain some notes on selecting your forces by unpicking Warscrolls, a bunch of scenarios, and campaign stuff, and a section on running the game as a co-op dungeon crawl against a GM. That’s 19 pages, including the cover. This may well be an official version of those guidelines by the sounds of it.

      • Bottle (the author) says that the new skirmish rules have nothing to do with his system.

        • EnTyme

          I’m not convinced he isn’t bound by NDA. Just seems weird they’d invite the creator of an incredibly popular fan system to show of their own if the two weren’t somehow related.

          • Then he’s a liar, which I don’t believe to be the case. I believe if he was bound by NDA he’d have just not said anything, which is what others bound by NDA have done.

        • euansmith

          That’s even more interesting. I guess there was a clue as the Hinterland stuff is still up on line.

  • Cristhian Mario Landa Rivera

    If rumours are true, then those skirmish bundles are freaking sweet.

    Stormcast: 3 Liberators, 2 Retributors, 3 Prosecutors, 1 Knight-Something, probably costing around $92, saving you $27.

    Ironjawz (oh man, I want this): 5 Ardboyz, 5 Brutes, 1 Wierdnob Shaman, $100.66 individually, saving you $35.66

    Fleash-eaters: 3 Horrors, 20 Ghouls, individually $87, saving you $20.

    Khorne: 5 Bloodreavers, 5 Wrathmongers, 1 Aspiring Deathbringer, individually $102, saves you $37 (and man, those Wrathmongers sprues are certainly expensive).
