Warhammer 40,000 – Leagues of Votann Hearthkyn Warriors

The next kit from the Leagues of Votann Army Set, after we covered the heroes on monday, let's take a closer look upon the Hearthkyn Warriors - the only core unit from the Votann Codex so far.

Warhammer 40,000 - Leagues of Votann Hearthkyn Warriors

With the army set, we received 20 of these, which is two sets of 10. They are spread across three sprues with lots of options (as you can see from the pictures and will see in further detail in this review). We don't have a price yet, but I assume we will be around the 45 to 50 EUR mark, as this is a three sprue kit. Again, as with the other review, we're not going to talk about special rules or point values (especially with the current feedback from the community, it is likely that there will be an update).

Warhammer 40,000 – Leagues of Votann Heroes

Now it is time for us to look into the kits included in the Leagues of Votann Army Set, beginning with the characters. There are two character choices included, even a named one, Ûthar the Destined (who can be build as a Kâhl) and an Einhyr Champion.

Warhammer 40,000 - Leagues of Votann Ûthar the Destined and Einhyr Champion

As we have no official prices on these as individual releases yet, there are only speculations. But we can assume that Ûthar will be around 31,50 EUR and the Einhyr Champion on the 27 EUR price tag. Each of them comes in a small sprue and covers the model itself with a few options. But more on that further below. We're not going to talk about special rules or point values (especially as the later might be changed in an errata).

Warhammer 40,000 – Leagues of Votann Army Set

Today is pre-order day for the army set of the latest addition of playable factions for Warhammer 40,000 - the Leagues of Votann. The Leagues of Votann are the successors of the old Squats in the new Grim Dark design. Less cartoony, less ZZ top biker gang, more sci-fi with a bit of nordic inspiration.

Warhammer 40,000 - Leagues of Votann Army Set Warhammer 40,000 - Leagues of Votann Army Set

These army sets were introduced a while ago and cover a medium sized force of miniatures, around the size of the Combat Patrol sets, along with a limited edition cover variant of the Codex, tokens and data cards. All this is usually set at a RRP of 155 EUR. Compared to the Combat Patrols, of which the most are around 120 EUR, you pay the upgrade for the Codex (~40 EUR RRP).

Necromunda – Goliath Maulers

Along with the latest supplement for Necromunda - Cinderak Burning, the next House to receive vehicles are the Goliath with massive bikes, the Maulers. We've already seen the Outrider Squads from House Orlock and were teased about House Escher's Cutter Jetbikes at Nova earlier this year.

Vehicles to Necromunda 2017 are a bit of novelty, just added this year with the Ashwastes. For Necromunda veterans of the mid 90s, this is the first time we receive "proper" officiala rules, as we had to make do with what we had, which meant house rules based upon Gorkamorka and some snippets from Citadel Journal. Especially if you take a look on how Necromunda started the relaunch. Gone were the days of bulkhead terrain, you played on a flat surface and now we're not just out in the open, but quiet mobile in our gang warfare.

Blood Bowl – BlitzBowl Ultimate Edition

Blood Bowl has a very special place on this blog. We've covered multiple teams on here, the Mordheim Marauders, Golden Vultures or Morks Maulers and Dino and I even had the chance to give the older versions of this game a try. So, when Games Workshop offered me the chance to cover the Ultimate Edition of Blitz Bowl in a review, I happily agreed.

The Ultimate Edition of Blitz Bowl released this year, updates initial the 2018s release (and later update with a second season in 2020) and basically the third season of the game. Blitz Bowl is meant to be an introduction game  - self enclosed board game - to reach out to new players, therefore it is sold via stores like Barnes & Nobles or Thalia.

Citadel Colour Contrast – Part 4

As a welcome update to our Part 3 coverage on the Citadel Colour Contrasts the Warhammer Store in Chelmsford (Essex, UK), once again outdid himself and updated their colour chart.

In the old post we've covered their overview on the contrast colours on primed bases and with the release of the 2022 update of the paint range (along with a new White Scars primer), Warhammer Chelmsford updated that again as well.

Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Chaos and Order

With a bit of delay I am happy to cover the new supplement for the Warhammer Age of Sigmar variant of Munchkin, Chaos and Order, which was released in June 2020 in English and June 2021 in German, adding the forces of Chaos (with the Khorne Bloodbound) and Kharadron Overlords as part of the Order faction to the game. The English version of the game is released by Steve Jackson Games with the localised version available through Pegasus Spiele.

Along the base game we've covered the first supplement Death and Destruction (with Flesheater Court and Ironjaws) on here as well. The latest supplement Guts and Gory (covering Undead and the Ogor Mawtribes) hasn't been localised yet, so will wait for the release of that.

Munchkin - Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Chaos and Order Munchkin - Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Chaos and Order

As with the other supplements, this one covers 112 cards as well and is priced at a RRP of 19.99 USD, the German box supplied by Pegasus Spiele is a bit cheaper at 14.99 EUR.

Necromunda – Ash Waste Nomads Dustbacks and Wy’tari Stormcaller

We're closing the Ash Waste reviews series after the Cargo 8 Ridgehauler last month and Ironhead Prospectors earlier this week (breaking the 300 review barrier by the way! Yay!). And today we're looking at the Ash Waste Nomads, primarely the Wy'tari Stormcaller.

Necromunda - Ash Waste Nomads Dustbacks and Wy’tari Stormcallers

Games Workshop sent the the Stormcaller kit by Forge World and I traded one of the Prospector sprue against one of the Dustback Helamites to add a bit of more content to this review. That's why I'm only showing the sprue and not the box set or instructions, but it should work either way.

Munchkin Warhammer 40.000 Cults and Cogs

Another supplement for Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 was released. We've covered the Sisters of Battle / T'Au supplement Faith and Firepower as well as the Space Wolves / Thousand Sons supplement Savagery and Sorcery already, but now it is time to introduce the Adeptus Mechanicus along with the Genestealer Cult in Cults and Cogs.

Munchkin - Warhammer 40.000 Cults and Cogs Munchkin - Warhammer 40.000 Cults and Cogs

The base set of Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 covers 168 cards, with 112 cards added by each supplement, and that is once again covered with Cults and Cogs, the fourth addition to the Warhammer 40,000 themed cards. The US box has a RRP of 19.99 USD, the German box supplied by Pegasus Spiele costs 14.95 EUR.

Necromunda – Ironhead Squat Prospectors

Following up on the Ridgehauler we'll do a nice double pack, covering the Ironhead Squat Prospectors and the Ash Waste Nomads later this week. But let's start with the Squats!

Necromunda - Ironhead Squat Prospectors

Oh, what nostalgy came back to the more recent releases. Squats, unmentioned for decades in the editions from the third until recent, were a part of the Warhammer 40,000 since the very beginning of Rogue Trader. Back then even called Space Dwarfs and more of an army of ZZ-Top biker army, yet with lots of classic norse themed dwarven iconography.
