About this deal

These dudes come on hover-trikes, and move with a 12" move speed (I love that even in vehicles the Votann aren't that quick). Just like the Squats, the Leagues are the descendants of early human space colonists and prospectors who settled in the hazardous, mineral-rich galactic core. If you missed out on the first set of Goliath tactics cards that came out with their gang , you can pick them up again shortly. Long announced and often teased, the Kin are the spiritual successors to the Squats, and represent a never seen before Warhammer 40,000 faction. HunTR weapons have no special abilities/requirements and get as many attacks as the number next to it indicates, so a HunTR 3 weapon gets 3 shots and so on.

All that quintessential dwarven-ness you expect from any Warhammer-associated dwarf-derivative race is dialled up to eleven for the Einhyr Champion. Though they resemble squat, sturdy humans, the Votann culture and even their genetic code has diverged from humankind, shepherded by the mysterious influence of their ancient Votann computers – hence the title ‘Leagues of Votann’. As you can see in the images above, there are a handful of mould lines on him – but nothing so large as to be difficult or hazardous to the miniature to remove. It gives him a real sense of command, and that he is directing the forward charge of the rest of your forces. And, because I had never seen these models before much less assembled them before, it took me longer than a typical build.To keep track of your Kindred Assets there is a blank Kindred Acquisitions record sheet which you can photocopy.

The datacards and especially the token sheet will be very useful, and the transfer sheets come with symbols for each of the 5 named leagues as well as numbers and general symbols for marking out your squads (thats squads not squats). The set includes eight tactics just for Goliath gangs, which emphasise their savage nature, 12 cards that any Necromunda gang can use, and six blank fighter cards, which are ideal for keeping track of your leaders and champions . Watch that you don't get outmaneuvered by your opponent, as they can feel a bit slow on the table, but don't be afraid to stick them in the thick of the fight and force your opponents to meet them head-on. To face their armies in battle is to stand before an armoured avalanche that crushes all in its path. They generally follow the trend where they give you early access to the codex a month or so in advance, which gives the box some intrinsic value.

If you decide to create your own league you can choose from the Established League Customs, you get to pick two rules and one ancestral judgement rule. Votann units get +1 to hit enemy units with one Judgment token, and an additional +1 to wound targets with two tokens.
