Iron rusts in January’s balance update


“You will never understand my vision.”

– Perturabo

A new balance update is live, reining in worrying strategies that arose with the latest content releases. Some of these have dominated the ranks in their short competitive lives, so we have applied a short list of tweaks while we monitor the situation as the meta stabilizes. Take a look at the full list of changes below!


  • Perturabo: Changed ability to ‘(2) Draw a troop and give it +1/+1. Next time, deal 3 damage to a random enemy’.
  • Champion Dornax: Changed Attrition ability to: Attrition: Give +1/0 to two random troops in your hand’ (instead of all).
  • Helk Squad: Lowered damage from active ability from 3 to 2.
  • Praetor Skarrok: Changes Attrition ability to: ‘Give 0/+1 to all other friendly units’.


  • False Colours: Changed description to: ‘Your Warlord becomes Alpha Legionary. Add 2 random Secret Identity cards to your hand’ (instead of 3).


  • Ireton MaSade: Changed ability to: ‘(2) Give +1/+1 to your troops. If you don’t control any, create a Auxilia Flamer in your hand. It costs 1 less’.

All of these changes are now live! Will you take a new approach during the new season? Will you lead a new faction into the fray? The battles of the Horus Heresy await you, commander. Good luck on the battlefield!
