Doom of Molech focuses on the battle for the Knight World of Molech during the Horus Heresy. A key conflict, this saw the entirety of House Devine betray their oaths and turn to the Warmaster’s side, leading to a massacre of Loyalist forces on the embattled world. It was also the site of some of the most vicious Titan and Knight fighting in the entire Heresy.
As you might expect, this means a lot of new options for Knights. The are rules for fielding entire armies of knights, expanded rules for fighting with and against knights, and even new Knight Households and traits.
Also included: new rules for issuing Orders to Knight Banners, ways to activate multiple Banners at once, expanded rules for shooting with and at Knights, and much more. In addition, there are new options for the leaders of a Knight Household, including Knightly Qualities to personalise them. You can also add Freeblades to your force, as well as choose from a range of new Stratagems and Battlefield Assets designed to complement the Knight Households.
And if you’re fielding a Knight-heavy army, there are new Household-specific mission objectives you can use in your matched play games to better suit your agile but fragile army.
Of course, Knights aren’t the only thing in the new book. You’ll find rules for four new legions: Crucius, Fortidus, Vulcanum and Interfector, as well as two new Maniples and all the rules that come with that.
The Doom of Molech is out soon, so stay tuned for more info!
