The Horus Heresy's first book is coming soon, and its Gamesday UK 2012 for the first book's release date. The first book will be a huge hit, and I am hoping we see a series of books that will lead right up onto the Emperors Doorstep. 

Please remember that these are rumors.

Compiled by Bigred on Warseer. Rumors are compiled from Harry and Roguestar on Warseer.
Basics
Three books planned - SO FAR. Could be others.
Primarchs and rules for the legions will be covered.

Volume 1 - "BETRAYAL"
Covers the opening of the Heresy, the Dropsite Massacre, the Traitor Legions, space combat in Istvaan, and Primarch models for Angron, Mortarion and Fulgrim.




Legions shown in artwork are:
Emperor's Children
Death Guard
Sons of Horus
World Eaters


Three Primarch's planned are: 
Angron
Mortarion
Fulgrim


Angron's miniature is described as:
Quote:
He's advancing, from left to right. Two chainaxes, one in each hand. Right hand going for an overhead chop, the other drawn back against his torso for a sideswipe (because it's Angron, he can't possibly be blocking!). High collar. White shoulder plates. Dreadlock-like neural-implants. Very angry. Link-chain cloak with a few skulls attached...

He is a good bit bigger than a 'normal' marine.
Also, murmurs of a Fellblade...
Out in time for Gamesday UK 2012
Described as a "BIG Book"

    3. Best Thing GW ever did was let the nids munch on the squats, horrible idea for a race. Space dwarfs. Bloody daft.

    4. Deadlift...They retconned that with 6th edition. The rulebook states that Squats are not extinct.

    5. Best Thing GW ever did was let the nids munch on the Eldar, horrible idea for a race. Space Elves. Bloody daft

    1. Orks are not going anywhere, they are one of the most characterful armies of 40k with a quite frankly gorgeous (as far as orks can be!) range of models. They've been around from the beginning and are too integral to 40k lore to be removed, I mean who wrecked the crimson fists if there are no orks?
      Sisters?... Well Matt Ward's gotta direct his frustration at someone, chances are they have the least players to get pissed off xD

  6. Sisters not fitting? They ideal for 40K, one of the most climatic army in the universe. Orcs on the other hand could be arguable, but since space elves are still in, Orks will stay too, since they adapted very well. Squats, as much I have sentiment for them, just didn't fit the archetype of dwarf, they were just little guys with beards. 40K afterall is just fantasy in space and they made it very well.

    1. Orks are one of the major antagonists in the game! They are a pest. A galactic nuasance that will never truly be stopped. If anything, Dark Eldar don't contribute much to the story at all.
