Path of the Traitor count down

In just 3 days the Great Crusade team will be congregating at Warhammer World for a weekend of pre-Heresy gaming, both themed and freeform.

From The Path of the Traitor announcement:

You are all encouraged to bring your work-in-progress AOTE armies and play with the lists and rules you intend to use for the event in May – consider this a good chance to try out those new units and combos beforehand.

Also, we can now confirm that New York Times bestselling author and co-creator of the ‘Horus Heresy’ series Graham McNeill will be attending on the Saturday as a special guest of The Great Crusade! So bring all your books for him to sign, and try to help me reign in my own geeky fanboyish gushings on the day…


Schedule for the Event

10:00 – 10:30 Arrive at Warhammer World, say hello and drool over each other’s armies.
10:30 – 12:00 Free gaming – play some Invasion Doubles games from TF AOTE rules pack.
12:00 – 13:00 Lunch break
13:00 – 15:00 Free gaming – try out the Cities of Death scenarios from TF AOTE rules pack.
15:00 – 18:00 ‘PATH OF THE TRAITOR’ Part 1: 2000pts Planetstrike TGC storyline event.

10:00 – 14:30 ‘PATH OF THE TRAITOR’ Part 2: Multiplayer Apocalypse TGC storyline event.
(We can afford to be a little more relaxed with this huge game, and take food breaks etc as required. If people want to play on past 2:30pm then WHW is open until 4pm!)


Socialising on the Friday and Saturday nights is encouraged, and there will be a handful of locals on hand to guide you around the city (or the pubs!) Also for those of us with real lives, return journeys to make etc, we hope to be finished by around 2:30pm on the Sunday – use that to persuade parents/spouses/significant others if required.

We expect a European contingent from Greece – our very own Dargor and Sotirios hope to be there with a few friends and their splendid PH armies… so come on down and say hello. smile.gif


We have confirmation of the two scenic tables we requested for the weekend:

The invasion of Theirese by the Warmaster’s legions will culminate in the assault on the governor’s palace on the City Walls board, while the loyalists launch a counter-assault on the communications relay on the planet’s second moon on the Outpost board.

Other games will of course take place on the battlefields of the urbanised planets within the same system, and the outcome of the whole campaign will likely affect Horus’ strategy for the push towards Terra as well as the evacuation of Imperial refugees by the loyalists.


This event will be FREE of charge, and there is no fee to play using the awesome WHW scenery.
