Medal of Colors Horus Heresy – Part 1. The 3 battles


I know, I know, I have been quite silent on the blog for the last month or so. Believe me, the last weeks have been pretty crazy from a hobby perspective.

For those who don’t know, I’ve organized with my friend Rémi from Salaise Figurines an event, called Medal of Colors, last saturday. It was a sort of convention for enthusiastic painters and players on the theme of the Horus Heresy. The spirit of this event was to play “fun and friendly battles on nice battleboards with fully painted armies”. And let me tell you it was a great success, the mission was accomplished at 100%!

We prepared three battleboards, each representing one famous battle of the Horus Heresy: battle of Calth (gothic urban city fight), battle of Murder (jungle battlboard) and the boarding of the Contrador (spacecraft zone mortalis).

Battle of Calth

This battle was set on an urban gothic battleboard depicting the battle of Calth. The scenario was a variant of Dominion from the FW Horus heresy Croisade book with the deployment map Search and Destroy (board divided in four quarter).

Battle of Murder

This battle was set on a jungle battleboard depicting the tropical region of the world Murder. The scenario was Fire Tide from the FW Horus heresy Croisade book with the deployment map Clash of The Line (two opposite arrowhead-shaped deployment zones). We choose this scenario to represent the electromagnetic thunders (inferno markers) described in the book Horus Rising.

Boarding of the Contrador

This battle was set inside the Iron Warrior’s spacecraft Contrador. As any good boarding scenario, we choose to play Onslaught from the FW Horus heresy Croisade book with the deployment map Ambush (defender deploys in the center of the table).

Stay tuned for the next article about the attendants and their armies!
