Part 1: Intro
Hello and welcome to part 1 of this epic scale Horus Heresy hobby blog. In this episode we will have a little chat about the ideas for this project as well as what I plan to do throughout this project.
Why build armies for the Horus Heresy in different scales?
Horus Heresy is easily my favourite licence created by Games Workshop. I have a love of historical games as well as a soft spot for science fiction, so the Horus Heresy is the perfect amalgamation of the two. The Horus Heresy is the history of the Warhammer 40’000 universe, setting the scene for the 40k that people know and love now.
I treat the Horus Heresy as i would any other historical game, as to me the Horus Heresy is a historical game. It has an established lore and story that started over 30 years ago, with hundreds of books and articles that flesh out this galaxy wide conflict.
The Horus Heresy has specific uniforms, squad markings and honour badges just like a historical game. Specific units, war gear for its factions and conflicts to re-enact.
By scaling down the miniature size in the Horus Heresy i can place thousands of troops on the table, those super heavy tank formations that the books describe and playout the apocalyptic battles between the titan legions.
The aim of this project.
The aim of this project is to build and paint multiple armies from the Horus Heresy at Epic 6mm scale, so I can play out some of the insanely huge battles from the Horus Heresy.
So if the Horus Heresy interests you, or you just enjoy hobby blogs, then follow me on this journey ……to re live the Horus Here
