The Space Marine Legions of the 31st Millenium field a diverse and formidable range of genetically-enhanced warriors and advanced war machines, superior to any other military force in the galaxy. As an Age of Darkness falls across the stars and the fires of rebellion rage out of control, the armies that were used to forge the Imperium turn upon each other in an apocalyptic civil war – the Horus Heresy.
Of the eighteen Space Marine Legions, only half remain loyal to their oaths. Heroes without equal, these Space Marines rally to defend the Emperor and all he has strived to build. In the turmoil of the Horus Heresy, the Loyalist armies stand firm against a tide of corruption and betrayal, waging bitter war against their former brothers – those that have forsworn their oaths and turned upon the Imperium. By the courage and might of these steadfast warriors will the fate of the Imperium, and that of humanity itself, be decided.
