View Full Version : Quick question about Horus Heresy books

I am considering to start a Legion Astartes army, and after long consideration, I opted for the Imperial Fists. But I am a bit confused about the way Forge World is releasing the rules and models, specially considering I am no expert in HH lore and I haven't read any novel (yet).

So:

1) In which book can I find the army list I need to build an Heresy era Imperial First army?

2) I need all three books?

3) Considering that, as far as I know, there are is no Rogal Dorn model in the horizon, and no Imperial Fists-only models aside from the torsos and helmets, maybe it is better for me to wait and see?

Thanks in advance.

Depends on how you want to build them.
The core legion rules that are shared with all legions are found in this book:
Crusade Army List (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/The_Horus_Heresy/Horus_Heresy_Books/THE_HORUS_HERESY_LEGIONES_ASTARTES:_CRUSADE_ARMY_L IST.html)

The fluff and rules for the Imperial Fists stuff is in Book 3 (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/The_Horus_Heresy/Horus_Heresy_Books/THE_HORUS_HERESY_BOOK_THREE_EXTERMINATION.html)

Or if you don't want the fluff, just the rules, you can do this bundle (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/The_Horus_Heresy/Horus_Heresy_Books/THE_HORUS_HERESY_LEGION_ASTARTES_GAMERS_COLLECTION .html), which has the base legion rules, and the other book has all the legion specific characters and units so far.
