Horus Heresy 2e Review: Pyromancy

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

Fire! And more FIRE! Plus a touch of rage perhaps. A very clear discipline that has long since been in the canon of this setting and most others besides. There is a particular way of running this discipline that will require movement and positioning, but it is a good one fundamentally. 

Pyromantic Combustion.
Use a large blast template, scatter it, and inflict a S=6 hit at AP4. Beautiful. Pass a psychic test and you get three pie plates. This is a highly damaging power and one to be used as quickly as possible in the early shooting phases. Yes, the pie plates scatter, but we can't have everything. 

Pyromantic Desolation.
The fire only cares that it consumes. This melee weapon comes with S=6 and AP=3 which is a great combination. The critical drawback here is that it also generates a regular pie plate centred on the user. Hence this is a power that you want to use when you're all on your own, and striking at high initiative. There's a certain art to this.
