Kharn The Betrayer Slaughters His Way Into Warhammer 40,000

September 3, 2016 by brennon

It was previewed last week but now we finally get to see the new Kharn The Betrayer model hit webstore for Warhammer 40,000 by Games Workshop. Blood will be spilled!

Kharn The Betrayer

As mentioned in previous posts he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I really like this new model. Maybe the chains around his arm are a little much but otherwise I like the sense of motion in the model and he looks good rushing into combat like this.

Kharn The Betrayer (Details)

It has somewhat prompted me to think about delving into Warhammer 40,000 and making a retinue of Khorne warriors for use in the new Kill Team rules set. I like the idea of this band of butchers with really personalised power armour charging around looking to pull peoples heads off.

I could then create some nice trophies for their bases as they continue to battle onwards.

A Traitor’s Hate

Additionally a new Black Crusade book has been announced called Traitor’s Hate which focuses in on Kharn in particular.

Traitor's Hate

Inside…

“As Abbadon the Despoiler launches his 13th Black Crusade, the diabolical Lord Xophas bypasses the Cadian Gate and leads an invasion of the Diamor System.

On the Warmaster’s orders, Xorphas commands the Crimson Slaughter, Black Legion and Word Bearers forces as he seeks a monstrous source of power that could spell the doom of the Imperium itself.”

New rules, formations and background are included within this tome and you can even stretch for a Limited Edition version of the book too if you so wished.

Traitor's Hate Limited Edition

“…this limited edition book comes in an exclusive slipcase and includes 6 metal Tactical Objective markers, 36 Tactical Objective cards, a double-sided campaign map/poster and a set of Heretic Astartes Psychic Powers cards, with exclusive artwork!”

Are you interested in delving into this new slice of the story and maybe even going the extra mile and picking up this Limited Edition copy?

Do you collect Khorne?
