The third character expansion pack for Talisman: The Horus Heresy includes two powerful Warlords of the civil war - Kaedes Nex and Archmagos Draykavac.
Each Warlord also comes with their custom Legion Dataslates, plus 15 new Encounter Dataslates.
A dark figure among the kin who followed Corax from Deliverance, Kaedes is seen as an ill-omen by his brothers. An infamous murderer condemned to prison, Corax offered him a pardon if he fought alongside him. When the Raven Guard came to Isstvan V, Kaedes was among them but vanished into the wastes to stalk traitors on his own terms...
Close Combat: 3
Ranged Combat: 4
ILL-OMENED - He May NOT use his Strategy when trying to reunite with a friendly Unit.
RELENTLESS STALKER - Whenever he defeats an enemy Unit in combat and gains XP, he also gains +2 XP for each Unit he defeated. This does not apply to defeating Warlords or Horus.
Whenever he defeats a Warlord in combat and takes resolve from them, he also gains 5 XP.
The treacherous Archmagos Draykavac has a fearsome reputation throughout the Imperium, thinking nothing of sacrificing thousands of lives to further his knowledge and understanding of the arcane arts of the Omnissiah.When the Horus Heresy broke out, Draykavac revealed his dark allegiance to Warmaster Horus, his loyalty bought with the promise of access to technologies long forbidden by the Emperor.
Close Combat: 3
Ranged Combat: 3
ARCHMAGOS PRIME - He may attempt to Reunite with ANY Traitor – Mechanicum Unit [Reunite 5+].
FORBIDDEN SACRIFICE - When he defeats a Loyalist – Mechanicum Unit in a Firefight, he may capture the Unit instead of gaining XP. He may take one captured unit, and if it is a ranged combat enemy, add its Ranged Combat to his for one Firefight Engagement, after which it is destroyed. He may only use on Captured Unit per Firefight.
Whenever he visits a Forge World, he may discard one of his Captured close combat Units and replace it with an Equipment Dataslate from the Forge World.

Out of all the Heroes and Villains packs to Talisman: The Horus Heresy, this one stands out the most as far as gameplay is concerned. While it doesn't break the trend of adding 2 new characters and few spells, what it changes is that both of these characters feel really unique and are all well balanced. Overall, this DLC is pretty good and if I would have to choose the best one out of all three, pack three is best without a doubt, since characters add something significant to the game. Recommended
