Games Workshop has continued its previews for the return of the Warhammer 40,000 Leagues Of Votann this week with a look at their Exo-Armoured elite troopers. What do you make of the Einhyr Hearthguard clad in pretty hefty armour?

The Einhyr Hearthguard are the best of the best within Leagues Of Votann society. They carry the best armour and the best weapons that the Leagues can offer up and this makes them the perfect shock unit to drop into battle.

Each of the Einhyr is armed with a Volkanite Disintegrator and can make use of their Concussion Gauntlets and Plasma Blades when it comes to getting up close and personal with the enemy. You can also just smash someone to pieces with one of those impressive-looking hammers.

You can also see that each of these warriors comes with a Grenade Launcher strapped to their shoulders. This means they can lay down some serious firepower when it comes to assaulting an enemy on the tabletop.

When it comes to the overall look of these miniatures, I started off not being very sure about them. I thought things looked a little bit off with the proportions and posing. But, as I've looked at them a little more over the last few hours I have started to quite like the overall look. I do like some of the bare heads but I reckon that I would give most of them full helmets; if that's an option on the kit.

In general, I think these look great. I have already been thinking up a good way to paint these when they arrive on my tabletop. I am tempted to paint them in orange armour with black undersuits as I don't think we see enough orange on the tabletop.

What do you make of the Einhyr Hearthguard?
