Phyrix: The Amber Strand
The Amber Strand is a Narrative event for Horus Heresy games which takes place in the Phyrix Cluster and is part of the Taking of Phryix Narrative campaign series. In this event you will play several games of Horus Heresy, both Frontline (regular games with minimal list restrictions) and Zone Mortalis.
Players will need the following:
- A fully painted, era appropriate 3000 point Horus Heresy army which contains no models with the Unique sub-type.
- A tape measure, templates, dice, and anything else which you need to play the game.
- A copy of the most current rules for every model they plan to use.
- A fully painted, era appropriate 1500 point Horus Heresy army using the Zone Mortalis force restrictions, which contains no models with the Unique sub-type.
A PDF of these rules can be found at https://linktr.ee/phyrix
Friday night will consist of pick-up Zone Mortalis games as players arrive, get registered, and get settled in. Saturday will start at 9AM and consist of 2 rounds of 3000 point frontline games, then a ZM Mega-Battle in the evening. Sunday will start at 9AM and consist of 2 rounds of 3000 point frontline games, then a short awards ceremony.
The Points of Interest system makes its return! After a hugely popular debut at Adepticon we will be bringing the Points of Interest system to the Amber Strand. For those not familiar, the Points of Interest system allows you to collect various Archaeotech and NPCs scattered about the Amber Strand. Please note only models with the infantry and cavalry types may interact with Points of Interest so plan your lists accordingly!
This event does not allow named characters or Primarchs. We are hard at work creating a system for designing custom characters and will release more information on that when it becomes available. Please join us over on discord so you can stay up to date on everything Phyrix! https://discord.gg/RqkXWjMk
It is strongly encouraged that players create a lore segment of why their army is in the Phyrix Cluster and who their main characters are. We will be on the lookout for players who have put the extra effort forward in this regard and they will be justly rewarded!

This event is meant for narrative play, please keep that in mind when creating the force you plan to bring. There will be no prizes for best general, only for thematic armies and great sportsmen.
