The second edition of the Horus Heresy is here, and we’re refreshing all our content to reflect the new rules. Check back regularly as we explore this edition.

Faction Overviews

The below articles are deep dives on each Space Marine legion and other factions – their lore, their strengths and their weaknesses. We’re still in the process of updating some of these from 1.0, which are marked in Italics – for now we’re keeping them here, as their fluff and flavour may interest new players looking to choose a legion.
