Official SynopsisEdit

The Horus Heresy: Book Seven – Inferno is a supplement for Warhammer 40,000 which depicts the cataclysmic battle of the Burning of Prospero, home planet of the Thousand Sons Legion, the near-destruction of that Legion, the fall of its Primarch, Magnus the Red, and the tangled web of fate and treachery which led to it.

Within the leather-bound, 312-page book, you will find detailed background information on the Fall of Prospero, told across six chapters from The Trial of the Sorcerer to The Seeds of Heresy, exploring the bitter struggle to defend Prospero from the merciless punishment meted out by the Imperium's forces. Included are full army lists for Space Wolves, Thousand Sons and Talons of the Emperor, allowing you to play the full Prospero campaign – 4 Missions, 3 Conclusion Missions and 3 Legendary Missions are included, alongside a host of special and optional rules.

The Space Wolves and Thousand Sons benefit from Legion-specific Rites of War and specific units and wargear, with full rules for their respective Primarchs included.

Full background for the forces involved is included: on the side of the Imperium you will find Space Wolves, the Legio Custodes, Sisters of Silence, Servants of the Warmaster Horus and the Ordo Sinister covered in great detail, with the same care and attention placed upon the background of the forces of Prospero: the Thousand Sons, Legio Xestobiax and the Forge World of Zhao Arkhad.

Also included is a Mechanicum appendix -- this features rules for the Acastus Knight Porphyrion, Vultarax Stratos-automata and the Karacnos Assault Tank, amongst others.

The Horus Heresy: Book Seven - Inferno is a complete expansion for the Warhammer 40,000 game -- it requires the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook, The Horus Heresy: Legiones Astartes - Crusade Army List and The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum Taghmata - Army List books to use all of its contents.
