GAMES WORK AT THE SOURCE
2nd Saturday Every Month – 11AM to 6PM
Isstvan III. Everyone knows a little about the Horus Heresy, but imagine being there. Imagine your best friend turning, pointing his bolter at you and pulling the trigger. Imagine your brother coming at you with his chain axe held high, ready to cleave your head from its shoulders. Now you can. Join Horus, Angron, Mortarion, and Fulgrim as they send those marines they felt were still loyal to the Emperor down to the surface of Isstvan III. Or, question everything. Wonder why you are being sent down the surface of a planet that you know will be virus bombed and then flamestormed. Find cover, get the word out or hunt them down. Your choice. The Source will be running all 10 battles from the new Horus Heresy-Betrayal book highlighting the major conflicts that happened during those few days of misery. Join us, the 2nd Saturday of every month from 11AM-6PM as we recreate these famous battles. The missions will be available on the website or at the event each month. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun as are all skill levels. Although this is a story about the Imperium’s Civil War from the year 30,000; all 40K races are welcome to play.
