“My calculations are flawless. Victory is the logical outcome.”– Iocton Rheim
Risking their lives fighting among giants and demigods, the courageous elements of the Imperial Army and the Mechanicum were pivotal in bringing support to the Astartes Legions during the Dropsite Massacre. This Friday, September 1st, the three neutral factions return to the battlefields of the Horus Heresy with new exciting troops and tactics available to use in any deck!
Get your deck-building skills in gear! These widely useful cards are perfect to complete a deck’s strategy, but they can also hold their own in battle. Will you command the ranks of the Traitor Auxilia or unleash the latest developments of the Mechanicum against your enemies?
Major support for Traitor Auxilia and Vehicles
Last expansion saw the introduction of the Traitor Auxilia archetype, bringing into the game the cruel and ruthless Cthonian Headhunters into the game. In this new release, we are expanding the archetype by bringing new Imperial Army cards that either contain or synergize with the Traitor Auxilia trait, bringing new possibilities to themed decks.
Also, both the new Imperial Army and Mechanicum sets of cards bring support for vehicle-focused strategies. Factions like the Iron Hands or the White Scars will be glad to see a myriad of new vehicles and vehicle-buffers make their way into the game, ready to unleash a grand cannonade against any who dare stand in their way.
