Five Unusual Builds for the New Horus Heresy Consuls

I love Consuls. I really do. They add interesting texture to Horus Heresy armies, they unlock interesting builds (as well as enabling less-than-interesting Deathstars), and the more support-oriented consuls are fun concepts. We’re so used to Space Marine heroes being up front and center that someone like a Master of Signals feels unique. So I was thrilled when Horus Heresy Book 8: Malevolence introduced some new ones.

Unsung Heroes of the Horus Heresy: We Have Winners!

After a slight delay that was mostly my fault for not checking a calendar, I’ve tabulated the scores from the three judges, added up the totals, and we have winners! Before they’re announced, I’d like to commend everyone who submitted an entry – they showed genuine effort and a love for the hobby, and the race was, in several cases, quite close. I’ve got several new favorite characters now, even if none of them were from my beloved VI and VIIth Legions. I’d also like to thank our amazing sponsors, who have been super-supportive: Seriously, they’re all amazing. And now, the winners! Primarch: Best Overall in Both Narrative and Miniatures Centurion Cjarn of the Iron Warriors Fabricator-General: Best Miniature Siege-Breaker Jivan of the Iron Warriors Remembrancer: Best Narrative Hallinax the Kind (or…Soul-Flayer) of the Night Lords And those, ladies and gentlemen, are your winners.
