NOMAD GAMES RELEASES TWO MORE WARLORDS FOR TALISMAN: THE HORUS HERESY

Two new warlords join the battle in the 31st Millennium, the Age of Darkness has begun in earnest.

LYMM, CHESHIRE, UK – 17 May 2017

Nomad Games are delighted to announce the release of two more powerful Warlords for Talisman: The Horus Heresy. The infamous River Hound Endryd Haar, and Calas Typhon will bring new tactical prowess to your force. Traitor or Loyalist, your army will not be complete without these two fearsome warlords.  Both are available on iOS, Android and PC.  

For the Loyalists - Endryd Haar

At the start of the Horus Heresy, Haar was on a forgotten Crusade and was driven to madness after realizing his Legion had betrayed the Emperor. After the Battle of Isstvan III, he renounced his legion and became a Blackshields commander.

For the Traitors - Typhon :

The First Captain of the Death Guard Legion once pursued the role of Epistolary in the Legion's Librarius, but with the Primarch Mortarion harbouring a deep-rooted distrust of those who wield the powers of the psyker, Typhon suppressed his gift and strove instead to serve as a war leader.

This is the fourth character expansion pack for Talisman: The Horus Heresy and each Warlord comes with their custom Legion Dataslates, plus new Encounter and Incantation Dataslates.

To celebrate the release of the card pack Talisman: The Horus Heresy is 40% off on all platforms all weekend!

ABOUT TALISMAN: THE HORUS HERESY

Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a digital board game based on the Talisman rule system and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the cataclysmic events of the Horus Heresy.

Up to four players will be able to take control of one or more of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains. Taking the side of either traitor or loyalist, these Warlords will form vast companies of Space Marines, battalions of tanks and battlefleets of Spacecraft. They are the most powerful beings in the Galaxy and their followers are legion.

The new combative team play will appeal to fans of Talisman and the Horus Heresy alike. It’s a unique adaptation of Talisman that has been tailored specifically for digital platforms.  In Talisman: The Horus Heresy the player’s experience of Talisman is scaled up exponentially, exploring not a kingdom but a whole galaxy in the 31st Millennium. No longer will you be fighting for the Crown of Command, but for the very future of humanity…
