New Death Fields faction: Einherjar

New Death Fields faction: Einherjar

A new faction is coming for Death Fields: the Einherjar.

The Einherjar are a veteran team on the Death Fields circuit. The core of the team were Norse raiders who were abducted on their way back from a successful Viking raid on the Kingdom of Wessex. Shortly after this their owner settled them on a high gravity world where they have lived for over 1500 years.

The chose their name after the warriors of Valhalla who fight and die each day to be born again in the feasting hall. Much like those mythic warriors, the Einherjar too fight and die on the battlefields of the arenas and stadiums only to be repaired and brought back by their alien masters.

Ongoing exposure to the high gravity of their new home world have caused them to become shorter and squatter and more heavily muscled over the centuries. But woe to the opposing team that makes fun of their stature!

Here are a collection of the parts that will make up the first infantry set:

I am checking this site daily for the next update on these guys. Cannot wait.
I really appreciate the weapon variety you guys are including with each sprue.

So looking forward to these, they’ll be a great addition to the classic games workshop squats I painted over the Easter holidays.
Keep up the good work, u get better with every release!!

For the past couple of months I’ve been on the hunt for some high quality and affordable space dwarves. You guys seem to have come in to save the day. Eagerly awaiting more news on these because they are just plain cool and very unique.

Serious question. How can we mount them on motorcycles?

As tired as I’m sure everyone is of hearing about 40k, I have to say, I looked at these and they immediately jump out at me as a great alternative to Valhallan Ice Warriors for an IG army.

Dude these are great. Every kit is an instant classic and this one is no different. Been wanting to do Space Dwarves and these fellas can do some serious work.

Stuff – you’re only seeing unique parts not how many are on the sprue.
