Games Workshop NOVA Open Reveal 2022: Leagues of Votann

Kicking off the NOVA Open 2022, Games Workshop had numerous reveals full of exciting things to come. Kicking things off was Warhammer 40,000 which of course showed off the anticipated Kinhosts.

In a video, the revamped Squats were shown off delivering a look at the figure line to come and there are some amazing reveals getting us even more excited for the new army.

The Leagues of Votann Army set kicks things off by featuring the first chance to get new models and the first chance to get the new codex (with a special cover). It’s coming in September. The set features Ulthar the Destined, Eunhyr Champion, two squads of warriors, and a squad of 3 grav bikes. It comes to around 500 points.

The box comes with the Eunhyr Champion, a close combat focused character model. The figure has some options allowing you to choose from, a hammer or axe, emphasizing the close combat focus. They’re the two best close combat weapons in the army. There are also two head options, both bare.

Ûthar the Destined is a special character, the only named character in the codex. There’s a prophecy about the character and what he’ll lead the League too. The character features a plasma blade. He’s a force multiplier giving re-rolls and extra abilities. You can also build the miniature as a generic hero as well. The model comes with numerous options, creating a flexible kit.

Also revealed was the Cthonian Beserk Mole Grenade Launcher. This upgrade option for the Cthonian Beserk unit, a mining based weapon that fires a grenade into the ground and pops up. It’s a bit of a throwback to the classic Squat Mole Mortar.

Brôkhyr Iron-Master features a graviton rifle and graviton hammer. He comes with a unit of robots, a Tech-Marine type of character. The robots, while a new design, feel like they fit well and a nod to the past.

The Grimnyr looks amazing. The character does a few different things. It’s like a psyker, a designed one though. They’re also the closest thing to priests as well. There’s a cool Nordic look to the character mixed with a little fantasy. The character also features two flying robots featuring bolter-like weapons (think wizards with their ravens).


The Hekaton Land Fortress looks massive, the largest miniature in the line. It’s the main battle tank and features a ton of weapons. There are a lot of options and the vehicle itself can take hits. As a transport, it can carry 12 warriors allowing for a lot of use and different roles in the game.

Overall, the army looks amazing with a nice mix of future tech with a bit of Nordic and Viking details added in. It’s definitely a great update for the classic Squats and should be exciting to see on the tabletop.

Squats get an Exo-Armour upgrade with the Leagues of Votann Einhyr Hearthguard

The Leagues of Votann are about the best technology and armor around and you can see that in the Einhyr Hearthguard.

The Einhyr Hearthguard features the best Kin fighters and is everything from bodyguards to first-strike troops.

The armor helps with durability allowing these warriors to hold the line.

Armed with a Volkanite Disintegrator and a shoulder-mounted grenade launcher, they can lay down a solid curtain of fire as they advance. Joining the melee, they bring to the fight devastating concussion gauntlets. Options include a plasma blade, perfect for slicing and dicing.

The exo-armor was designed for hostile environments, so perfect for the ash wastes. Now with heavy weapons and defense, they’re helping take on the hostiles trying also to claim dig sites.

Aside from its piston-powered pulverizing fist and seismic crusher, the suit’s also armed with a heavy flamer – which can be replaced with a heavy bolter.

Squats are back for Warhammer 40K as Leagues of Votann

Squats are back… seriously. Yesterday, Games Workshop released a video that quite a few thought was a prank considering the day. But, it looks like the joke was really it’s not a joke. The video which teased the return of the classic Squat army is real, though they’re back as Leagues of Votann.

Games Workshop has been teasing the return of the Squats for quite some time releasing figures for Necromunda and Blackstone Fortress but we’ll be getting a whole army with a brand new look.

Leagues of Votann refer to themselves as Kin and they have their roots in humanity creating an uneasy relationship with the Imperium of Man. They came out of the Age of Strife with more of their ancient technology intact including some that the Imperium would consider “extremely heretical”.

The look of the initial figure is quite different from the classic style which had much more of a biker gang and pirate vibe to the force.

This new faction is coming later this year to the 41st Millennium.
