Broadly speaking heresy forces are split by those forces still loyal to the emperor of mankind and those who turned traitor and declared for the warmaster. Delve a little deeper however and a much more nuanced picture begins to emerge which provides a rich background for creating narrative based forces for either faction. My own collection has already expanded way beyond an initial XIIIth legion ‘Ultramarines’ force to also include an insertion force of traitor ‘Word Bearers’ led by their Primarch Lorgar, daemons of the ruinstorm, Vlka Fenryka execution pack and more recently the beginnings of a VIIth legion Imperial Fists stone gauntlet. Those are without even casting my gaze beyond the legions to the Solar Auxilia, Mechanicum or Knight’s Errant.
Then of course, there’s Forgeworld’s diverse and challenging range of characters, weaponry and vehicles to get to grips with. Enough to keep me immersed in heresy’s background for years to come.
