*This category does not include dreadnoughts, but does include single miniatures from The Character Series.

**Squads do not need to adhere to the rules of the Horus Heresy game; in so much as they do not need to be “game legal”. However, how well your entry fits into the background of the Horus Heresy will be taken into account when the judges are making their decisions.
