So the Helbrute formation is here, yay! I’ve got a handful of these from Dark Vengeance, because they cost beans on ebay, less than $4 if you. Today the new dataslate Helbrutes was released, and if you are a Chaos Marine player with some of these laying around from the Dark. Hot off the presses and hot on heels of the new Helbrute kit we have the Helbrute Dataslate. Being a long-term Chaos Space Marine player.

Hot off the presses and hot on heels of the new Helbrute kit we have the Helbrute Dataslate. Being a long-term Chaos Space Marine player, with a penchant for the slightly crazed, and considering that the Helbrute kit is really rather good see my previous review for more on that frontI am pleased to report that the dataslate adds another, rather funky, aspect to including these lumbering, rataslate, dameon engines in a Chaos Space Marine army.
First up, the dataslate reiterates and expands the background surrounding the Helbrute. The additional fluff builds upon the elements of the character of the Helbrute that I like the most. Just as the unpredictability in their rules demonstrates, the various denizen commanders of the traitor legions struggle, as much as they revel, in the tactical complexities inherent in deploying Helbrutes as part of a fighting force.
Reading the descriptive text and accompanying prose really gives you a sense of how the presence of one or more Helbrutes in an army generates a tension within your forces. Some legions might venerate and worship the incarnate abominations crashing across the battlefield, others might helbrtes them as purely expendable and use their abhorrent appearance to force their enemies to focus all fire to bring them down, before they can rampage through their battlelines.
Why three of course! And why not deep strike them in to maximise their threat?
The Mayhem Pack allows you to take a formation of three Helbrutes and deep strike them belbrutes the battlefield from reserve. But only if one of them is a super nut-job that all the other Helbrutes in the unit look up to like some kind of Alphabrute of murderocity!
I have to say, I am seriously tempted by this option. I mean just the idea of having 5 of these things as a rampaging mobile moshpit of death, smashing its way across the battlefield is enough to make me go out and buy three more kits. The champion does gets an invulnerable save and means you can pick the crazed result for the whole pack. It will just look frickin cool! Although I do think that the Mayhem Pack has some serious potential and in the right situation the Helcult could be very handy.
Rob needs to do more reviews for you.
Laughed and laughed at this. Nearly good enough to actually persuade me to play 40k! You are commenting using your WordPress.
