Hearthgut Hooch Hauler — Trollblood Northkin Battle Engine (PREORDER)

Preorder the Hearthgut Hooch Hauler by January 30, 2018, and receive a FREE Black Anchor Heavy Industries Hooch Hugger.

Preorders ship by end of February 2018. Quantity limited to the first 1,000 preorders. The Hearthgut Hooch Hauler will be available as a normal item in the online store after February 1st.


Hey guys, Will Pagani here! The Hearthgut Hooch Hauler goes up for preorder from Black Anchor Heavy Industries today, and boy, is it a doozy! That model makes me wonder why I don’t have more Trollbloods in my personal collection. I suggest you give it a peek below, and see this amazing model for yourself.


As with the Dracodile, preorders for the Hooch Hauler will ship for free worldwide! That’s right, we’re covering all shipping costs on this enormous and beautiful model when you preorder it. While the Dracodile came with a stylish shirt (which will be shipping very soon to those who preordered!), the Hooch Hauler does not. It comes with something far more, um, thematic: a Black Anchor Heavy Industries Hooch Hugger! (That’s an insulated can holder, if you’re not familiar with the term.) It’s yours, for free, when you preorder through our online store.

After the Northkin CID cycle, I became very excited about playing the Hearthgut Hooch Hauler with one of my favorite warlocks in the Faction—Calandra Truthsayer, Oracle of the Glimmerwood. She brings an incredible toolkit to the table and can really make the Hooch Hauler shine. Here is the list I’ve been enjoying playing quite a bit:

Theme Force: Storm of the North

Calandra Truthsayer, Oracle of the Glimmerwood

– Dire Troll Brawler

– Dire Troll Brawler


– Dire Troll Mauler

– Trollkin Runebearer [free]


Krielstone Bearer & Stone Scribes (4)

– Northkin Elder [free]

Northkin Fire Eaters

Northkin Fire Eaters

Northkin Raiders (10)

Hearthgut Hooch Hauler


The Hooch Hauler’s Cask Bomb is a very powerful single attack, and it’s important that you land it where you need it. Calandra’s special rule Fate-Blessed helps make sure the targets you need covered by Oil get, well, covered by oil. With its multiple sprays and blast damage, this battle engine can put out a large number of attacks that benefit greatly from Calandra’s feat, Good Omens, which allows you to reroll 1s and 2s on attack and damage rolls. Calandra loves higher-defense models like the Northkin Raiders who also utilize the High Proof rule from the Hooch Hauler very well, particularly when stacked with Good Omens and Fate-Blessed.

~Get it while you can – they are only making 1000!
