The Horus Heresy. Legions has released its third major content expansion, The Burning of Prospero. This expansion draws from the battles chronicled in the New York Times best-selling novels A Thousand Sons and Prospero Burns, following the tragic events that led to the fall of Prospero, home planet of the Thousand Sons.
Three new factions are joining the game, including two of the most popular Space Marine Legions: Thousand Sons and Space Wolves, as well as the Legio Custodes, sworn protectors of the Emperor himself. With 140 new cards, 9 Warlords and new cosmetics, this expansion will bring the game to 750 cards and 55 collectible Warlords across 16 different factions.
The Emperor’s Executioners
The first Legion to join the game will be the Space Wolves. Often underestimated as no more than armoured barbarians, their reputation as the Emperor’s executioners will be tested at Prospero. With the help of Rune Priests, Fenrisian Wolves and, of course, a casket of mjod, the VI Legion has the strength to bring any other Legion to their knees.
The Red Sorcerers
Next will come the Thousand Sons. They boast unique gameplay mechanics to unleash their psychic powers in the dangerous pursuit of knowledge that led to their censure by the Emperor and the dramatic events at Prospero. Condemned for dwelling in sorcery and misunderstood by their brothers, the Legion of Sorcerers has nothing to lose and will unleash its full potential to defend itself.
The Emissaries of the Emperor
The third faction to join the expansion will be the Legio Custodes. The Custodians, defenders of the Imperial Palace and the Emperor himself, were part of the Prospero offensive. Genetically engineered warriors of unswerving loyalty and unshakable purpose, their might, skill-at-arms and wargear are greater even than the Space Marines of the Legiones Astartes.
The Battle of Prospero sealed the fate of the Space Wolves and the Thousand Sons for millennia to come. Now players will have a chance to have their say in its outcome. Which side will you take?
