Great Crusade era ay?
Well the first few HH books are GC era, the HH series doesn't really kick off with the whole wide-spread Heresy thing until about the third book. There are also loads of snippets of info and short extracts that go back into the Great Crusade era.

the crusades where still going on after Istvan
it wasnt just a sudden moment that everything changed
thats imperial propaganda, the story that is told now about those days
it took years before the heresy really popped off
there were still Word Bearers around Terra months before the invasion, and Horus didnt rush Terra he took a pretty roundabout path
so the Horus Heresy series gives a great view on the last few moments of the great crusade
including stuff like the emperor burning one of the word bearers shrine worlds or the last surviving thunder warrior and stuff like that
so that is a great place to start until someone writes about the crusade itself

I'm well aware of this, but the era known as the 'Great Crusade' ended at Istvan.

wasnt criticism on your repli
just a way too long explanation why the starting books of the Horus Heresy are a great view on the great crusade

There are some books like the new Primarch ones that are going to be GC era.

Honestly though, the HH books have been downhill for some time due to their mass produced nature.

Please help me change skirmish to be customisable. Its very important for PVE players.

If you actually want to read some stories about the Great Crusade era then I would recommend you to get Tales of Heresy.
