Default Horus Heresy Campaign?

Anyone ever think of this or think to try it/ Like reanact battles from the horus heresy and such, and re-do Terra. I think it would be fun, but I don't know how to go about doing that.

I would imagine this would be done via Inquisitor instead of 40k mostly. I've seen a lot of dioramas based on these events, but never a true campaign for it that I know of.

Given that we know pretty much everything about it, I don't see why someone couldn't easily make the campaign up really either.

I guess it just might be weird if the Emperor actually isn't slain.... :P

Cheers!

I can't see it being done in 40k that much. To be honest Mal I can't see it being done in inquisitor either unless your talking aobut the famous duels. Msot of these battles where on a scale not seen since in the Universe. i would ahve thought if you wanted to do the Horus Hearsy asa campeign youd be best doing it in Epic as you could then do the vast armies that clashed, and also in BFG, for the massive space fleets.

You'd have a adhoc mix of Guard and Marines in either case with the Navy involved as this would be before the Navy and aSplit were split(combined tactics any one?) and many of the marines still organized into Legions rather than small chapters and leading over all. BFG would not have any of the Imperial navy ships, just the older model chaos ships minus the one escort and all the ships of the Space marines duking it out.

a horus herasy campaign would be fun. although it would be a problem to get it into 40k. all i can think of is joining a whole bunch of tables together and fight with that. but it would be a very fun and interesting campaign.

to bad my eldar can't be in it.

That's what I was pretty much pointing to. Actually reproducing the scale is more of a big project someone would do for a scenery thing; like a White Dwarf photoshoot. It would be way too big to even see in one shot. Just like those massive impressive full chapter companies and stuff people make and show.

For this, since it's simply too large to show accurately, I would boil it down to Inquisitor and have the major battles since it's all about the heroes here anyways.

Otherwise, for building the campaign, it would need to be done via Epic and BG for the smallest scale battles and then, use 40k for the "in this chamber... this battle happened" before we finally get to the Inquisitor scale for the heart of it all.

Cheers!

Didn't someone make an army based on the events on Terra, or was it a Praetorian Guard army (I think that's the name of the Marine types who guard the Emperor's throne no?)

Adeptus Custodes. Yes, a few people ahve modeled a marine army on them, done conversion and such. Very nice work thougha bit limited in what it would actually do.

Well, there was some pictures on one of the issues of the Black Gobbo online magazine.

Anyhow, we're getting off topic here. Back on how you'd try to organize a Horus Hersy campeign!

I suppose we could invent uet a another scale of gaming for this. Reduce the army units to individual blocks of tanks, troops etc. Using epic scale you could have a single tank model recognize a whole armoured company for example.

Or you could do what 40k was mainly meant to do in large campaigns-represent a vocal or important part of the battle. You could possibly play a roll over *I think they are call that) campaign for each "battle". I think it'd be tons of fun.
