The new balance update imbues Warlords with new zeal!


“It’s my time to speak.”

– Eidolon

There is no respite in the Horus Heresy! The constantly changing battlefield means one must always be aware of their surroundings and be ready to adapt. With the fires of battle now burning brighter than ever, the many Warlords of the Horus Heresy return to the battlefield with newfound zeal, ready to take down their enemies!

In this month’s balance update, we focus the changes on Warlords. Besides reining in the neutral menaces that threatened the highest echelons of Terra, we are giving a push to Warlords that have not been featured in meta reports for a while. Check out all the changes below!
