Welcome to Throne of Skulls
Welcome to Throne of Skulls: The Horus Heresy – an ‘entry level’, non-competitive gaming event for anyone who wants to play fun games set during this age of darkness and treachery. This event features a relaxed atmosphere where players can focus less on winning games and more on rolling dice, killing Space Marines and enjoying themselves. All the awards are based on sportsmanship, painting, gentlemanly conduct and having a good old laugh with like minded people. If that sounds like something you would like to take part in, then read on.
What’s the Horus Heresy?
The Horus Heresy is a story from the distant past of the Warhammer 40,000 universe – a galactic civil war that ended in the creation of the Imperium as we know it today. It was a time of legend, betrayal and strife and makes an ideal battleground for our games.
At its most basic, this means we use a special series of supplements produced by Forge World designed to let you re-create these battles.
