The Horus Heresy: Legions Imperialis is an Epic scale game released in November 2023. It takes places during the Horus Heresy.[3]

Description

Warhammer: The Horus Heresy - Legions Imperialis is a game of vast tabletop battles for two or more players. The epic-scale miniatures used in this game are smaller than those used in Warhammer: The Horus Heresy, allowing you to field more units and recreate the massive conflicts of that Imperial civil war on your tabletop. Declare your loyalty to the Emperor or the Warmaster, and fight for the fate of the war-torn Imperium.[4]

Gameplay

The recommended size is 3,000 points per side, played on a 5’ x 4’ battlefield.[2]

The activation of Detachments alternates, meaning you move or fire a Detachment, then your opponent does, and so on.[1]

Using tokens placed face down next to their Detachments, players assign Orders simultaneously and in secret. There are four main Orders: First Fire, Advance, March, and Charge, plus Fall Back, which a unit can be assigned when they take heavy losses.[2]

Shooting works pretty much the same as it does in most Warhammer games. Weapons have a range, an amount of dice to roll, a target number for the Hit roll, an Armour Penetration value, and Traits. Select a target in range, roll the right number of dice, and apply any modifiers to the roll. For each one that hits, the model gets a Save that can be modified. Traits are where extra variety happens – guns with the Light trait cannot hurt heavy tanks, for instance, while Assault weapons are more powerful up close – ensuring everything has a niche.[2]
