Why trouble with pointless frippery like wheels if you’ve bought a large ornery bear inhabitants proper available? That’s the philosophy Total War: Warhammer III’s Kislev faction takes to the strategy game’s battlefields anyway, and you’ll be able to see it in motion within the newest unit reveal, which exhibits off the Kislevite War Sleds. They’re huge sleighs stuffed with indignant lads with guns, and they’re every powered by two giant armoured bears.

The sleds are available in ‘light’ and ‘heavy’ variants, though we reckon it’s in all probability a distinction that makes little or no distinction from the attitude of the infantry they’re meant to trample. If a unit is someway left standing after the sleds’ preliminary cost, there’s nonetheless a follow-on volley of gunfire to fret about.

The warfare sleds function comparable feathered buildings to the Kislev winged lancers Creative Assembly revealed final week, and the heavy sleds are crafted from what seem like timber beams clad in metal scales. The bears are yoked by excessive arch buildings, which supplies them room to maneuver round and do bear issues to any Chaos models in entrance of them.

Here’s the clip:

The solely bits we’re uncertain about are the ice crystals beneath the sleds: they give the impression of being a bit too neon and static, and they don’t actually convey the sense of a sled transferring throughout a frozen lake floor or tundra.

But on steadiness, these seem like they’ll be extremely entertaining models to subject when the Total War: Warhammer III release date rolls round afterward this yr.
