The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum - Taghmata Army List is the third army book released as part of Forge World's Horus Heresy Series of campaign and army books that takes place during the Horus Heresy. The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum - Taghmata Army List contains the complete Mechanicum unit profiles, special rules and wargear for a Mechanicum army to be used during a Battles in the Age of Darkness expansion game. This book contains the units that were released within the first five Horus Heresy Series books. Due to the release of subsequent books this book will eventually be replaced with an updated version.
The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum - Taghmata Army List brings together the Mechanicum units and rules from The Horus Heresy Books One to Five in a 120 page, hardback book. It includes background and profiles for all of the units available to the Mechnicum Taghmata, Legio Cybernetica and Ordo Reductor armies as well as support aircraft, seven classes of Knight, the Warhound, Reaver and immense Warlord Titans and introduces powerful new units such as the Ordinatus Macro Engines.
Additionally, this book includes updated Age of Darkness expansion rules for playing games of Warhammer 40,000 during the Horus Heresy, and all of the weapons profiles and special rules you’ll need for your Mechnicum army.
The Horus Heresy: Mechanicum - Taghmata Army List is an expansion to Warhammer 40,000. You will need a copy of the Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook in order to use this book.
