In the wake of Warmaster Horus' betrayal of the Emperor of Mankind, the Imperium fell into a bitter war, splitting the noble Space Marine legions in two, one half staying loyal to their Emperor, and the other following in Horus' footsteps, in this Age of Darkness all of the 18 legions must pick a side, and so the mightiest warriors of the galaxy clash in an all-out war until the end.


The Horus Heresy - Age of Darkness box set contains 54 miniatures (enough for two armies) which include a Praetor with Power Axe, a Praetor with Power Sword, 10 Cataphractii Terminators, 40 MKVI Legion Tactical Marines, a Contemptor Dreadnought, and a Spartan Assault Tank, the set also includes a massive 336-page The Horus Heresy - Age of Darkness Rulebook, and all the extra things you need to start playing the game.




Two massive 344-page and 352-page rule books for either the Loyalist or Traitor Legions in The Horus Heresy, with a bounty of new rules, lore, artworks, legion-specific Primarchs, Rites of War, and much more.





Even before the Horus Heresy, the ominous Ahriman was the strongest of the psykers of the Thousand Sons and their first (and last) Chief Librarian and possessed the powerful skill of precognition through his potent psychic abilities, giving him the power to foretell the probability of future events, at the time, using this power for the good of the Imperium until such sorcerous ways were deemed blasphemous and shunned, but just like his Primarch and legion as a whole, Ahriman's ceaseless hunger for knowledge - even of the forbidden kind - lead him on dark and twisted paths that ultimately brought upon his descent into chaos.




A sturdy dedicated transport vehicle widely used by the Legiones Astartes, offering great tactical advantage due to its ability to carry 10-man squads of Space Marines across the battlefield to key positions while being able to withstand heavy enemy fire.

A tough and powerful Heavy Assault Tank built from an uncovered pattern from the Old Earth, made to withstand massive amounts of enemy fire while ploughing through enemy battlements with ease using its huge array of heavy weaponry, making it the perfect option for spearheading an assault on the enemy.
