Attention defenders of the Imperium - the God-Emperor needs you to fight against the Ruinous Powers! On 18th February, all across the world, the forces of Chaos, spearheaded by the Word Bearers Legion, will attempt to destroy the Ultramarines Chapter once and for all.
Ten millennia ago, the Word Bearers struck and Calth burned. At great cost, the Ultramarines drove their enemies from the world and into the darkness. Now they have returned. In the ruins of Calth and across the worlds of Ultramar, Chaos forces led by the Word Bearers take their revenge on the defenders of the Imperium. The Ultramarines are hard-pressed to see off the threat, and they need allies. Build your forces and take part in this day of devastation. Field your Space Marines and Imperial Guard in defence of Ultramar, or bring Daemons and Chaos Space Marines and finish what was started ten thousand years ago.
Hobby Centres around the world will be running massive games of Warhammer 40,000 to celebrate the eagerly anticipated Horus Heresy novel by Dan Abnett, Know No Fear. The story in the book takes place around the invasion of the Ultramar sector and the battle for Calth. To commemorate the events during the Heresy and the ripples of effect this had in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, many of our stores will be fighting huge battles in the never-ending war on various planets across the sector.
We've already heard tale of battles taking place on space stations, moons and even underground, from Cities of Death battles to massive, shop-sized Apocalypse games. Sounds like things could get pretty messy on the gaming table, if you ask me. Make sure to drop by your local Hobby Centre or check out their Facebook page, where you can find out more about the day's events.
Don't forget, if you've got any great Word Bearers or Ultramarines hobby, we'd love to see it...
