Horus Heresy 2e Review: Hvarl Red-Blade

Warpstone Flux Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4/5 stars. The rules are good.

Many legions have members who feel like they don't quite belong. Or maybe got the wrong geneseed implant. Hvarl is one of those numbers to my mind - he's a secret World Eater. But only in my head. Really, he just likes chopping heads off. And, erm, collecting them. And then singing and boasting about it to his company mates. And encouraging his company mates to do the same. And only finding joy in the din of combat. But yeah. Still totally belonging to the Space Wolves.

Hvarl is a praetor who grants preferred enemy of everything via his warlord trait to his unit along with a bonus assault reaction. He also dishes out 3 scout special rules which is handy and comes with Hearth-Spitter, an armourbane axe which is nice. 

The stat line is praetor level in tartaros armour coupled with a small slew of other special rules like fear, counter attack, and inexorable. 

The real icing on the cake is that he hauls around a heavy bolter for fun. 

Not much. He is basically a pre-built praetor with hand extra rules. 

Very happy with him and he is a great character when you want a praetor who is not Russ. The counter attack helps him slot in very nicely with grey slayer packs which is where I feel he belongs. He's such a strong choice when Russ isn't around.

Difference to First Edition.
Very similar.
