About this deal

Not only does it come with an impressive array of brand-new and hitherto unreleased miniatures, it also contains all the extra bits and pieces you need to take your new army from the painting table to the tabletop. The Kin’s genome must have been reworked at the same time human culture created the Navigator houses, but the Cloneskeins are far more stable than their Imperial equivalent. Meanwhile, the modular design of Kin weaponry, and the layered armour plates of Exo Armour, resemble technology we’ve seen on House Van Saar models, something the Necromundan gangers can only create using a secret, highly radioactive, STC system. Hardy, independent, and avaricious asteroid miners armed with some of the best guns, armour, and technology in the game, these space dwarfs are not messing around. He has a suite of other abilities, most notable among them his ability The Destined, which reads: Each time an attack is allocated to this model, the Damage characteristic of that attack is changed to 1.

The set includes a control dice featuring swerve, jackknife and roll results, four damage dice featuring glancing hit, penetrating hit, and catastrophic hit results, and three location dice featuring engine, crew, body, and drive results. That's right, folks, today marks the opening of pre-release purchases for the Warhammer 40K Leagues of Votann Army Set, an all-in-one box containing everything players need to run their own Leagues of Votann forces on the battlefield. The Hearthkyn’s Etacarn Plasma Beamer has a lot in common with Belisarius Cawl’s ‘new’ range of Plasma weaponry, and the curvy panels and circular joint-covers of Hearthguard Exo Armour look at lot like his ‘innovations’ in the Mk X Power Armour worn by Primaris Space Marines. There are several army-wide rules for the Leagues of Votann, a big one being the Eyes of the Ancestors.

Of course, it’s supposed to resemble a stone-like, scarred texture, ta give ye the feel this wee chappie’s got sum o’ tha’ real dwarven grit aboot ‘im. In 10th edition, enemy units will only gain a Judgment token when they destroy a Votann unit – that’s a lot more miserly than in 9th edition, when tokens were handed out like party treats.

It comes with a set of Datacards, including all stratagems for the Leagues of Votann and the psychic powers of the Skeinwrought discipline, plus one for the smite power. They’re the nominated war leader of a given Kindred (specific, named groups of Kin within a larger League). Lead your Kinhost with Ûthar the Destined – or a mighty Kâhl – supported by an Einhyr Champion, three roving Hernkyn Pioneers, and 20 Hearthkyn Warriors who can be split into two units of 10 to give you a tabletop-ready army organised into a Patrol Detachment.

If you like what we’re doing here you could really help encourage more content with a share on any social media platform. Alongside the points increase is a change to the Eyes of the Ancestors ability, previously if an enemy unit was auto-wounded as a result of the ability, any special abilities that would trigger on a specific wound roll would consider that roll to have been an unmodified 6. If you aren’t able to net yourself one of the boxes, you’re going to have to wait for the individual units and figures to receive their own releases. Next there's the far-flung and scattered Trans-Hyperian Alliance, who gain a bonus to their attack role if they lose members of their unit. Typical dwarf motifs are used rather sparingly, which sets them apart from the Kharadon Overlords from Age of Sigmar, and even if the male Kin have decent facial hair, we’ll look in vain for long beards.

Doubly so if you’re wanting to play the “default” option for the Greater Thurian League because Uthar the Destined is the one (and only) unique character in the army (so far). Like the other 40k factions still without a 10th edition codex, there’s only one Leagues of Votann detachment on offer: Oathband. For the first time in a long time we are seeing a new (old) faction join the Grim Dark Future of the 41st Millennium. Take a look at Ross’ awesome How to Paint Space Wolves video from the 16-minute mark for a demonstration on how these work.Let’s talk about options for a few moments, because there are loads of them across the Hearthkyn Warrior set. The other benefits these different Leagues can employ are varied, and the above is just scratching the surface, but it gives you an idea of the way flavor and mechanics merge to form each League's distinct idenity. There is huge value hidden inside the new Leagues of Votann Warhammer 40k Army Box in our estimated value breakdown. Even within our little FauxHammer community of playtesters, the regular Warhammerers aren’t too keen on playing against any Leagues armies due to their frightening rules. Now operating under the name of the Leagues of Votann, these hardy space-dwarves of the far future are back – and better than ever.

There are some absolutely wonderful models in the Army Set, and when these go to full release they’ll be snapped up by hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. Let us know in the comments of our Facebook Hobby Group, or our new Discord server, and make sure you enter the latest monthly giveaway for FREE today!The Votann army has had a somewhat controversial first year among 40k fans, starting off so powerful some tournament organisers banned them outright – before suffering a major nerf that soured some fans on the army. So if you aren’t playing as the Greater Thurian League and just want to have a cool Kâhl to lead your army…you can build him however you want. At the end of the day, regardless of how you kit everything out you’ll end up with flexible Force Org breakdown. In a Crusade campaign you gain Kindred Acquisitions, 4 resources that you roll for after each battle , the amount gained being determined by the size of the battle which is shown in a table.
