Crafted with meticulous detail, this multipart plastic kit assembles five Einhyr Hearthguards, the elite Kin outfitted with exceptional armament and armor.
Their robust exo-armour, etched with potent runes, grants them the capacity to endure focused enemy fire while boasting a shoulder-mounted grenade launcher for added firepower.
Each model stands ready to wield a selection of ranged and melee weaponry – an EtaCarn plasma gun or volkanite disintegrator for calculated ranged assaults, along with a concussion gauntlet or plasma blade gauntlet for fierce close-quarters combat.
The kit comprises an assortment of 19 interchangeable heads, encompassing 12 unique bare heads, five distinctive helmets, and two helmets featuring open visors.
Moreover, the diversity extends to a model that can be fashioned into a Hesyr leader, armed with a concussion hammer and showcasing the choice of two distinct crests.

How to paint the Einhyr Hearthguard set
- Step 1: Armor Base Color
Begin by painting the armor of the Einhyr Hearthguard with Incubi Darkness. Apply this color to their exo-armour, covering the larger areas.
- Step 2: Shade for Depth
Apply a shade like Coelia Greenshade over the Incubi Darkness base. This shade will settle in the crevices, creating depth and shadows on the armor.
- Step 3: Gilded Details
Using Retributor Armour, paint the intricate details on the armor. This will create a striking contrast against the darker base color and make the details pop.
- Step 4: Exposed Heads
Paint the exposed heads of the Einhyr Hearthguard using various flesh tones, like Cadian Fleshtone, Kislev Flesh or Rhinox Hide.
- Step 5: Radiant Swords
Paint their swords with a vibrant orange color, such as Fire Dragon Bright. To achieve a glowing effect, drybrush a lighter orange like Yriel Yellow on the edges of the swords.
- Step 6: Gun Details
For their guns, like the EtaCarn plasma gun or volkanite disintegrator, use Abaddon Black to paint the main body. You can then add small details with metallic paints for added realism.
- Step 7: Basing
Create a realistic base for your Einhyr Hearthguard. Apply Astrogranite Debris texture paint to the base and let it dry. Once dry, you can drybrush it with Administratum Grey for a weathered stone look. Add additional details like grass tufts or rocks for extra realism.
- Step 8: Varnish for Protection
After your painting is complete, protect your work with Citadel’s Ardcoat varnish. Apply a thin coat to shield your model from wear and tear while enhancing its overall finish.
