It's a long time since Games Workshop has got me excited. But I'm all of a flutter about the release of The Horus Heresy: Betrayal of Calth on 14th November. Why? Is it because this is a new standalone game? Well no. I expect the worse with the rules. It's because miniatures for gaming the Horus Heresy - the only bit of the Warhammer Universe that grabs me - are now more affordable. Sure, the box set is still expensive, but nowhere near as expensive as the figures currently available from Forge World. So, a step in the right direction. Now all that is needed is a good rule set!
