Free Blood and Skulls for everyone this weekend in Talisman!

We’re releasing free Talisman characters today as part of the Games Workshop Skulls for the Skulls Throne promotion on Steam.

Whether it’s for Horus Heresy or Digital Edition you won’t be disappointed, Sanguinius and Ka’Bandha will be added to your warlord list in Horus Heresy and the Witch Doctor will be cursing his way onto the Digital Edition board.

All these characters are freely available to new and existing players as a token of Nomads
appreciation to all our Talisman customers.

If you’re into the fantasy version, Talisman: Digital Edition, then the Witch Doctor can curse other characters with his evil eye, has a penchant for magic and great healing abilities. If Talisman: The Horus Heresy is your weakness there’s a whole character pack up for grabs with the formidable Sanguinius, Primarch of the Blood Angels Legion and Ka’Bandha the mightiest of Khornes servants, not to mention seven new encounter data slates and four new alternative game endings.

If you don’t own either of these games you can snap them up at a bargain price with 80% off the base games and up to 60% off expansions this weekend, as part of the Games Workshop Skulls for the Skull Throne Steam promotion.

Not only that we’ve released the next expansion for Talisman: The Horus Heresy - The Shadow Crusade has begun. While the Ultramarines reel from the Traitor surprise attack on Calth, Lorgar and the rest of the Word Bearers strike deep into the realm of Ultramar. Their unlikely allies, Angron and the World Eaters, continue to ravage each new system they come across.

The Shadow Crusade allows the player to explore the events of The Horus Heresy around the Ultramar System in more detail and play as the Warlords and Legions that fought there.

The Expansion has 6 new Warlords for you to play. Each Warlord also comes with their custom Legion Dataslates.

The free Talisman characters and Shadow Crusade are all available on Steam, iOS and Android.

“This game is a great addition to the Talisman family. If you are looking for the boardgame experience but your friends are too far away, then check out Talisman: Horus Heresy – you won’t be disappointed!”
4/5 – Bell of Lost Souls

“The Horus Heresy offers a wonderful, local (and online) multiplayer experience for up to four players, and its simple gameplay offers an oddly relaxed approach to galactic warfare.”
7/10 – Brash Games
