Released by Nomad Games, Talisman: Horus Heresy has just received a content expansion to the base game. Dubbed the “Isstvan Campaign”, this expansion now includes seven new warlords for players to choose from. This game, for the uninitiated, is effectively a Warhammer 40k skin for the classic tabletop game known as Talisman, more can be found on gameplay here.
For each of the respective factions, three new champions will be available. The Traitors will gain Fulgrim (aka the Phoenician, Prefector of Chemos and High Lord of the Emperor’s Children), Perturabo (aka The Lord of Iron, Primarch of the Iron Warriors) is a grim warrior and a master of technological arcarna, and Armillus Dynat the Harrowmaster of the Alpha Legion. The Loyalists will gain Ferrus Manus (the Gorgon, Master of the Iron Hands), Nathaniel Garro (Hand of the Sigillite, former Battle-Captain of the Death Guard 7th Battle Company), and Saul Tarvitz (One of the few loyalist Company Captains of the Emperor’s Children Legion).
Beyond these six, the seventh warlord is available to both sides, as a Chaplain. All seven of these warlords come with a custom database. The update also includes new Places, Strangers, and Events to interact with on the board. This also includes new Stratagems and Dataslates on top of the whole whole Isstvan System to check out. In other words, this is a fairly big expansion.
For those of you who don’t have this game yet, Talisman: Horus Heresy is available from Google Play for $4.79, and also includes IAPs for expansions of the game.
