Russian Beta Callout

We've been working on introducing Russian to Talisman: the Horus Heresy and we've finally completed the process.

We were wondering if any Russian users would be able to join our beta group and have look over the game and let us know where there are text spills, breaks or mistranslations.

If you are interested then send me and add on Steam and I'll sort beta access our for you.

“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

7/10 – IGN Russia

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.
