GW: Brôkhyr Thunderkyn Preview
Die Leagues of Votann setzen auf Technologie einer vergangenen Ära und mit den Brôkhyr Thunderkyn wird eine neue Einheit für den Kampf um die ferne Zukunft gezeigt.
Drop the Wrench and Pick Up the Cannon – The Brôkhyr Thunderkyn Are Marching to WarWe’ve seen plenty of awesome Leagues of Votann technology already, from nimble Sagitaurs to thundering Einhyr exo-armour, but we’ve only scratched the surface of the ingenious Kin that create it all. It’s the job of the Brôkhyr to toil in forges, and when the Oathbands head to battle, they strap into powerful exo-frames to become the mighty Thunderkyn.
The powerful suits they wear are adapted from rugged engineering rigs and allow the Brôkhyr Thunderkyn to heft the heaviest man-portable weapons the Leagues can muster with ease. Hordes of enemies fall before bolt cannon salvos, while heavy infantry find themselves pierced by the unstoppable lances of SP conversion beamers.
Although not quite as scratch-resistant as the Einhyr Hearthguard’s exo-armour, their exo-frames can still weather considerable fire.
The rigs themselves are rough and workmanlike, a far cry from the Kâhl’s beautifully ornamented armour, but they get the job done – and the Brôkhyr would have it no other way. Their advanced engineering equipment also helps out, with omni-visors able to pick out the telltale signs of enemy units through dense terrain.
