A look at The Horus Heresy Book Six – Retribution which features the bitter conflicts of the shadow wars fought throughout the Age of Darkness.
The Horus Heresy Book Six – Retribution continues the unfolding saga of the Horus Heresy. As the fires of total war consume entire worlds and whole Legions clash, away from the front lines the Knights-Errant are abroad too, penetrating the warp storms that afflict the entire galaxy as they carry out a mission bestowed upon them by the very highest authority on distant Terra.
The Shattered Legions pursue bloody vengeance against the hated Traitors, who in turn seek to hunt the Loyalist survivors down no matter where they might seek refuge. Blackshields – orphaned or outcast Legiones Astartes who have renounced their Legions and obscured their heraldry – harbour their own objectives, alone in the darkness, sometimes aligned with the Traitor cause, sometimes the Loyalist, but just as often for their own unknowable ends.
This book explores the unseen Shadow Wars that raged across the entire galaxy as betrayed Legiones Astartes mounted bitter campaigns against their former brothers, determined that if death was to be their fate, their betrayers would share it. This tale is told across five chapters, describing five very different Shadow Wars of the Age of Darkness.
Also included are a detailed campaign system and a set of special Shadow Wars missions, enabling players to undertake their own series of linked battles fought between the types of forces explored throughout the book.
The Horus Heresy Book Six – Retribution is a lavishly printed, leather bound book. Its 297 pages contain a myriad of new rules, including those for combining Space Marines of several different Legions into a Shattered Legion force, and new Legiones Astartes rules for the Dark Angels, Blood Angels and White Scars Legions.
Rules are also included for the heroic and elite Knights-Errant, the renegade Blackshields, and numerous new Rites of War for each Legion. In addition to this, unit entries are included for new consul types, heroes and war machines of the Legiones Astartes, including the Legion Mastodon Heavy Assault Transport and Dreadnoughts of the Leviathan pattern and Contemptor-Cortus class.
The Mechanicum also gain new characters and units including Anacharis Scoria and the Arlatax class Battle-automata.

You will also need a copy of the Warhammer 40,000 core rule book to use these books.

The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Crusade Army List is a 96 page hard back containing the complete profiles, special rules and wargear, compiled and updated, for the core Legiones Astartes Legion Crusade Army List for Warhammer 40,000 and the Battles in the Age of Darkness gaming expansion.
It allows Horus Heresy players to carry something lighter the their games than the weighty tomes of our main volumes, and is also intended to be used both as a resource for consulting and collecting your armies and as a handy reference during play.
The contents of this book have been drawn from across the three volumes of Forge World’s Horus Heresy Isstvan Trilogy series, and are intended to be used alongside its companion book The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Isstvan Campaign Legions which provides the special rules and unique units and characters for the specific Legions featured in the epic conflict of the Horus Heresy’s opening stages.
It can also be used as a basis to build a Great crusade army list for any of the Space Marine Legions.
If you already have the Crusade Army Book you just need Book 6 to continue your collection. If you’re just looking for a great entry point for some of your favorite armies then the Retribution Collection is what you want to go with. The Blood Angels, Dark Angels, and White Scars Legions are joining the conflict – and they have been waiting to strike back!
