With this multipart plastic kit, you can construct a squad of 10 Hearthkyn Warriors – robust Leagues of Votann soldiers donning enclosed void armor. Each warrior is armed with an Autoch-pattern bolt pistol and gravitic concussion grenades. Plus, you have the flexibility to equip them with either an Autoch-pattern bolter or an ion blaster.
The kit offers an extensive assortment of weapons and gear, encompassing a medipack, multiwave comms array, and pan spectral scanner. Among the weaponry are a magna-rail rifle, HYLas auto rifle, L7 missile launcher, and EtaCarn plasma beamer, allowing for up to two specialists to be outfitted.
Additional parts are included for a Theyn, complete with options like an ion pistol, EtaCarn plasma pistol, concussion gauntlet, plasma axe, and plasma sword.
Embracing diversity, the kit provides numerous cosmetic choices, ensuring that no two squads need mirror each other. Variations include both helmeted and bare heads, Ironkin heads, supplementary arms grasping an array of weapons and grenades, a wealth of pouches and tools, and three distinct decorative crests for the Theyn.

How to paint the Hearthkyn Warriors set
- Step 1: Primer
Begin by applying a solid base layer using a primer spray. Choose a primer color like Chaos Black Spray to provide a strong foundation for your painting.
- Step 2: Base Coat
Start with the clothing of your miniatures. Apply Incubi Darkness to their clothing. Make sure to cover the clothing evenly for a consistent appearance.
- Step 3: Shading
Enhance the depth of the clothing by applying a wash. Use Coelia Greenshade as a wash over the clothing. Allow the wash to settle into the folds and recesses of the clothing for added realism and depth.
- Step 4: Armor Base Coat
Switch to the armor now. Apply Ulthuan Grey as a base coat for the armor plates. Ensure an even application to create a smooth and uniform look.
- Step 5: Shading for Armor
To add depth to the armor, use a wash. Consider using a wash like Nuln Oil to apply shading to the Ulthuan Grey armor. Focus on the crevices and corners of the armor for a more realistic effect.
- Step 6: Layering for Armor
For the armor, apply a layering technique. Use a lighter shade, like White Scar, to highlight the raised areas of the armor. This technique adds dimension and contrast to the model.
- Step 7: Weapon Details
Refine the weapons by adding details with metallic paints. Apply a metallic paint like Runelord Brass to the metallic parts of the weapons. Highlight raised areas with Brass Scorpion for added depth.
- Step 8: Face and Hands
For the exposed skin areas, use a flesh tone like Cadian Fleshtone. Apply a shade like Reikland Fleshshade to define facial features and create depth. Use Abaddon Black for eyes and lips.
- Step 9: Varnish
Preserve your meticulous work by applying an appropriate varnish. Opt for a varnish that provides a satin-matte finish, such as Munitorum Varnish. This choice complements the battle-worn appearance of your Hearthkyn Warriors and contributes to their overall realism on the tabletop.
