Raiders, Kings, and Legends: Next Week’s Pre Orders
The Idoneth Deepkin are reinforced next week with three new units – the dual-build Akhelian King kit and the Namarti Reavers.
Namarti Reavers are raiders and scouts for your Idoneth Deepkin army and are ideal for holding objectives, slaying enemy war machine crew and generally making a nuisance of themselves on the tabletop.
You’ll find Namarti Reavers a fun and flexible unit to use – for one, they can shift their mode of fire depending on how close they are to an enemy, either carefully picking off the foe at range or releasing a storm of arrows if they’re a bit closer to their targets.
In fact, if you take an Isharann hero as your general – such as Lotann, Warden of the Soul Ledgers – you’ll be able to use them as Battleline units in a matched play force.
Meanwhile, the Akhelian King kit offers you two choices – an Akhelian King of your own invention or Volturnos, High King of the Deeps himself – a very special aelf indeed.
Volturnos isn’t just the greatest living Idoneth Deepkin – he’s also rumoured to be the first ever aelf created by Teclis, and is the last surviving member of the Cythai, the first, tragic generation of aelves to be created. Over the years, Volturnos has proven himself a talented commander and peerless warrior, siding with many enclaves and proving instrumental in transforming the Idoneth Deepkin into a powerful and established race. We’ll be taking a closer look at Volturnos in an in-depth preview next week.
Akhelian Kings are the ideal leaders for Idoneth Deepkin armies, offering a powerful command ability with Lord of Tides:
With this ability, you’ll be able to empower your deadliest units with additional attacks – ideal if you’re looking to make the most out of your elite Akhelian cavalry or even a unit of Namarti Thralls.
Akhelian Kings are also superb combatants – you’ll be able to equip yours with either a bladed polearm or a greatsword, while Battletome: Idoneth Deepkin is packed with artefacts and warlord traits to help you forge a mighty ruler of your own making.
You’ll be able to pre-order both these kits next week, but in the meantime, you’ll want to ensure you pick up your battletome to make the best use of them.
Monsters and War-beasts of the Idoneth Deepkin
The Idoneth Deepkin make greater use of monsters and beasts than nearly any other army of Order, making up for their limited numbers and resources with magically enslaved bond-beasts. At their smallest, these may be the bioluminescent creatures that light the undersea enclaves or the familiars that fight alongside the Isharann. At their mightiest, these could be the savage Akhelian Allopexes or even the Akhelian Leviadon.
The bonds that the Idoneth Deepkin share with their beasts is a difficult one. While the Stormcast Eternals and Fyreslayers may possess a deep connection with their draconic allies, the Idoneth Deepkin must magically enslave their bond-beasts using the Embailors, a specialised sect of the Isharann. In order for these magics to take hold, the creatures must be blinded, for without this measure they risk slipping their bonds and escaping in a murderous rampage. There are groups and even whole enclaves of Idoneth Deepkin who trawl the oceans for beasts to hunt and capture, with the Ghurish forces of Dhom-hain training particularly vicious specimens.
There are some exceptions – a few Ochtar, such as the familiar that fights alongside Lotann, Warden of the Soul Ledgers, have proven loyal, as have the rare Deepmares ridden by Akhelian Kings.
The Idoneth Deepkin present all sorts of opportunities for hobbyists and gamers alike, boasting a rich stable of monstrous creatures to build your army on – take an Akhelian King as your general, and you could even field an entire mounted phalanx with Fangmora Eel cavalry as Battleline units! If you love using monsters, you’ll find the Idoneth Deepkin a very rewarding force – whether you’re looking to field an army of them or just want to add an allied detachment to your Order army.
The greatest of the Idoneth Deepkin’s monsters is the Akhelian Leviadon – something between an armoured battleship and a dragon. Just check out its stats:
The Akhelian Leviadon plays perfectly to the strengths of the Idoneth Deepkin, shrugging off enemy fire in the earlier turns of the game before making a crushing charge. There are few things that can stand up to an Akhelian Leviadon on the offensive – particularly when you factor in its Jaws of Death:
With only one attack, you’ve just got the one chance each turn to unleash Jaws of Death – but should it go off, you’ll take a considerable chunk out of any unfortunate model’s Wounds in an instant.
You’ll be able to pre-order your Akhelian Leviadon in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
