A grand strategic war game set in the future of the 31st Millenium. You fight as powerful Warlords, across the galaxy, building vast armies and armadas, either in the service of the Emperor of Mankind or the Warmaster Horus and the forces of Chaos.

8/10 “One of the best touchscreen games on iPhone and iPad for fans of this kind” Kick My Geek

8/10 “Delightful game, beautiful, effectively supplied and simple (due to tutorials) that will appeal to many beginners" - Blue Bird

"This reimagining of the classic Talisman gameplay in the Warhammer 40k universe is one of the most gorgeous digital board games I have ever seen." - Brad Cummings,

"Fans of both Talisman and Warhammer 40,000, will like this one" - Pocket Tactics
Talisman: The Horus Heresy is a fun new way to interact with the Universe of Warhammer 40,000. If you are familiar with The Horus Heresy, you will find new ways to explore it; if you are a newcomer, this game will teach you all about the characters, planets, campaigns and the complex machinery of war employed in this Epic struggle of Good and Evil.

Up to four players may take control of one or more of the galaxy’s greatest heroes or most notorious villains. It’s a combative game and players take the side of either traitor or loyalist, these Warlords form vast companies of Space Marines, battalions of tanks and battlefleets of Spacecraft. They are the most powerful beings in the Galaxy and their followers are legion.

This is a digital board game based on the Talisman rule system and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, during the cataclysmic events of the Horus Heresy. It’s a unique adaptation of Talisman that has been tailored specifically for digital platforms and scaled up exponentially, exploring not a kingdom but a whole galaxy in the 31st Millennium. No longer will you be fighting for the Crown of Command, but for the very future of humanity…

A alright game worth the money

So firstly I love wh40k and I love playing as a loyalist but you see there is a clear balance issue some heroes can steamroll traitors at the start because of just bad start stats but the loyalists always get d/cked out of turns or are just going to have a bad roll onto the warp. The expansions do fix this a lot with Magnus making loyalists lose some strength and lemon russ 🍋 makes angron be not a runt anymore

Good game but crashes

If you like talisman and Warhammer 40k you’ll love this game, however, the crashes usually after a battle when you are about to choose an enemy’s inventory item or take their resolve means you’ll roll the dice after every battle hoping it doesn’t crash, this crash has been around for a few versions now, I’d say since the Prospero update.

Poor performance

I enjoy this game when it works. The problem of random crashes are too frequent on IOS. It does this after the game, but before experience is calculated and whenever too opposing warlords draw in a duel. I have contacted the team repeatedly and nothing has changed. Disappointing.
