Hearthkyn Miniatures Revealed For 40K’s Leagues Of Votann

June 21, 2022 by brennon

We got a much better look at the Leagues Of Votann from Games Workshop this week! This time around, they previewed the Hearthkyn that will be making up the core of your Leagues Of Votann armies on the battlefield in Warhammer 40,000.

The Hearthkyn are kin that can be drawn from all portions of society in order to fight for the Leagues. They undergo martial training to be able to fight for their Holds when they are needed to do so. It reminds me somewhat of the Guardians that are called to fight in Aeldari society.

Each of these Warriors is often engineered with cloneskeins that allow them to specialise in certain elements of combat whilst others augment themselves with bionic limbs and such to make them quicker and stronger.

As we've seen in previous previews, the Ironkin also walk into battle alongside their flesh and blood allies amongst the Leagues. They fight just as hard and are seen as invaluable amongst the other Kin. I absolutely love that and hope they get to be mixed in and around the other members of your Hearthkyn squads.

Leading the way for each squad of ten-to-twenty warriors are the Theyns. They can utilise more exotic weapons like Concussion Gauntlets and Plasma Axes/Swords. Importantly, not Power! It will be interesting to see what the qualities are on those.

There are, of course, also a bunch of special weapons included as part of this kit like the L7 Missile Launcher or the EtaCarn Plasma Beamer. How about a Magna-Rail Rifle? You can also play around with Ion Blasters and HYLas Auto-Rifles if you fancy. I don't know what any of those do but they sound awesome.

This new kit has pretty much sold me on the Leagues Of Votann. I am loving the designs and I think I would keep pretty much all of them without their helmets on. I think the character they've worked into the faces is suitably Dwarven and give off proper retro Squat vibes. I think these folks would look awesome painted with orange armour and black undersuits.

It will be fun to see what's next for the Leagues Of Votann and when that brand new boxed set comes out!

What do you think?
