Skulls for the Skull Throne

It’s the return of the Skulls event hosted by Games Workshop!

This weekend will see the release of a myriad of free content across a number of GW license holders so games like Talisman, Talisman: The Horus Heresy, Warhammer 40k: Vermintide 2, Total War: Warhammer and much more will see updates today that will enrich their games at no cost to their users.

As many of you will know we’ve been working on the Deep Realms and Woodland with the first being scheduled to release… well, around about now. Well, now. Deep Realms is out now! As part of the Skulls for the Skull Throne event, Deep Realms will be the very first expansion released by Nomad Games that is FREE for all users.

The Deep Realms expansion for Talisman: The Magical Quest Game features two new Realms to explore: the Wraith Lord’s Domain and the Rat Queen’s Lair. Adventurers may brave the rickety bridge in an attempt to cross between the game boards found in The City and The Dungeon expansions. Heroes can also choose to delve deep into the crypt of the Wraith Lord or the nest of the Rat Queen.

Along with the free release of Deep Realms you can also catch the base game at 75% off and all expansions at up to 50% off whilst the Skulls event lasts.

Not only that, we’re also giving away Rogal Dorn and Samus, two new characters, for Talisman: The Horus Heresy! Traverse the galaxy under the banner of the immortal Perpetual or the Lupercal and help change the Tides of Wars by defeating unworthy enemies as two new Warlords. As of today Rogal Dorn and Samus will be available for FREE to all T:HH users.

Similarly to T:DE, Talisman: The Horus Heresy sees 75% off it’s base and up to 40% off all expansions whilst the Skulls event lasts.

Deep Realms, Rogal Dorn and Samus are available for free on Steam, iOS and Android.

To find out more about the event visit the Skulls for the Skull Throne page.

Twitch stream giveaway!

We'll also be giving away one Season Pass a day for either T:DE or T:THH over on our Twitch channel to lucky followers who enter the giveaway code live on stream.

“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

About This Game

Talisman: The Horus Heresy is 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 .

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.

The new combative team play will appeal to fans of Talisman and the Horus Heresy alike. It’s a unique adaptation of Talisman that has been tailored specifically for digital platforms.

In Talisman: The Horus Heresy the player’s experience of Talisman is 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…
