The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth
It is the 31st Millennium. The galaxy is aflame.
Enlightenment and knowledge are sundered; the Age of Darkness has begun in earnest. The EmperorÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs glorious vision for humanity lies in ruins as his favoured son, Horus, has rejected his fatherÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs light and embraced the corrupting tendrils of Chaos. Civil war has broken out amongst the Space Marines - once brothers, fighting side by side as the galaxyÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs protectors, they are now a force divided. Some remain loyal to the Emperor, others have sided with the Warmaster. Nothing is certain, everything is at stake, and the Imperium is split down the middleÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ¦
The Horus Heresy: Betrayal At Calth is a fantastic standalone boxed game of claustrophobic tunnel combat, set during the Word BearersÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ invasion of the Ultramarine world of Calth. Emphasising fast-paced squad-based combat during six exciting missions, it allows players to choose their side and command a force of beautifully detailed Citadel miniatures in a brutal war for survival, during one of the iconic battles of the Horus Heresy.
