40K: Mutalith Vortex Beast Consumed by Warp

  • Posted by

The Mutalith Vortex Beast brings the power of the warp to you.

Fueled by a powerful Chaos Vortex that grants them the ever-shifting power of the Warp, and mutated beyond all reason by those same changing energies, the Mutalith Vortex Beast is a force to be reckoned with. It’s also selling out quickly online, so you might want to grab yours before the warp takes them all.

That video is right. Those powers are no joke–as we’ve talked about before, there’s a few different things you can do with these beasties. They have a list of random powers you can use every turn, either picking the one you want, or rolling the dice and taking 2 (possibly the same power twice). These are either things that reach out and touch your foes, inflicting mortal wounds and the like, or giving your own units some pretty sweet buffs, like improving AP or letting a unit fight first in the fight phase.

And there are stratagems you can take to get an extra power off as well. But, beyond that, these guys are a beating. Their betentacled maw gives them either an attack that hits decently hard with -2 AP and 2 damage, or you can pull the old “make 3 attacks every time you fight with this weapon” and get like 12 attacks at -1 AP and 1 damage.

You can find out everything about this beast in our Thousand Sons army list video. Or grab yours below, while you can.

Mutalith Vortex Beast$85

A Mutalith Vortex Beast is an utter abomination of nature. It is a terrifying fusion of monster and magic, a creature mutated beyond all reason by the power of Chaos.

The Mutalith Vortex Beast differs in a striking manner: a vortex of raw Chaos echoing the shape of the 8-pointed star looms up from its back. Nine huge tentacles extend out of its mouth, each of which is dripping with ichor. Finally, it possesses two tails that end in mouths, tongues and claws. It comes with an alternate head that has no tongue; instead there is a grimacing maw and growths protruding from its face.

This multi-part plastic kit contains 78 components with which to make a Mutalith Vortex Beast or a Slaughterbrute. Supplied with a Citadel 120x92mm Oval base.

Change is a constant, doubly so with these guys.

    This article is making it sound like once the kit is sold out, it’ll never be available again. It’s not even sold out online in the US store. >.>

    • Jonas Barkå

      With GW currently selling more than they can manufacture, it could be a while until it comes back in stock.

  • Kabal1te

    Is the slaughter brute usable in 40k, or is it still WHF/AoS only?

    • Sir Postalot

      Its still AoS only. But who know deamonkin khorne might be a thing in the future

  • chris harrison

    Tentacles, spikes, dripping goo, warp rift, unpredictable powers, I am deep in unclean lust with this thing.

  • Anasa

    As much as I like the concept and individual parts of the model, I can’t bring myself to like the whole. The pose seems a bit off.

    • Kabal1te

      There are Somme bizarre anatomy things going on that makes it look that way. That said it’s not exactly a new kit either. Just GW repurposing something that they already had which they hope to sell more of.

    • Alienerd the unbannable

      He’s only just woken up and is stretching and doing one hell of a yawn, bless him.

    • Andy Wise

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. I appreciate that it’s supposed to look super random and all about the tentacles but the total lack of cohesion doesn’t work for me as a model.

      • Anasa

        Aye, it seems to have the same super awkward hand/front leg pose that the Stormcast Dragon thingy has.

    • LankTank

      I think it was due to the fact it had to not extend past its fantasy square base when designed

  • Twil42

    I keep hoping they’ll make Slaughterbrute / Mutalith 40k compliant. Just add another sprue to the kit with extra accessories. Slaughter can be Khorne, Mutalith can be Tzeentch, add more tentacles and claws for Slaanesh, add some puss-filled wounds for Nurgle. Rules would be for a powerful variant of the Chaos Beast.

  • HeadHunter

    “Mutalith” thounds like thomething Mike Tyson would thay when playing TharCraft.

  • Jared van Kell

    If they ever do a World Eaters or Khorne Daemonkin codex I can see the Slaughterbrute getting included in that.
