This post is to let those interested know the players’ pack for the upcoming Horus Heresy: Drop Site Massacre on Istvaan V campaign weekend is now available for download!

Much like the 14th Black Crusade campaign tournament we ran last summer, this event will be story driven, focusing on the action that sparked the Imperium’s defining moment: the Horus Heresy.

As this campaign weekend will focus just on the drop site massacre on Istvaan V, it will be a tournament that only Space Marine armies can participate in. The hitch: players will make their army from any Marine codex of their choosing (Black Templar, Blood Angels, Chaos Marines, Dark Angels, Space Marines or Space Wolves); but regardless of which codex your army is made from , you can’t choose which side you’ll fight for until the morning of the event. Yes, this means you could be playing a Chaos Marine army, rife with generic daemons but fighting to preserve the Imperium of Man! (We have a mechanic built into the tournament for how and when players can choose their faction…plus there will be special rules conferred to the armies of either faction).

Attached to this post is the players’ pack, or you can download it at We’re taking registration right now, which can be paid for online (at using PayPal, or done in person at Great White, in Southcentre Mall.

Last but not least, this event IS part of the GW 2011 Tournament Circuit. Two entry tickets to the Throne of Skulls Tournament being held in Las Vegas on June 18th-19th, 2011 will be included in this event’s prizes.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to shoot it our way; email either or

PS. If you go to GW’s tournament circuit link, it will show this event as taking place on February 27 & 28; THIS IS NOT TRUE.

The Istvaan V event will be taking place on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday February 27; and like the 14th Black Crusade and Conquest, this will be a catered event (meaning your registration will also cover lunches).
