Community Showcase: Twilight Kin

16th Oct 2023

Martin Thirlwell

Hi everyone, Martin here!

A while ago I engaged in some clandestine skulduggery, and asked a few of our community painters to undertake a secret mission to paint up new Twilight Kin miniatures ready for launch week.

By now, I hope you’ve already spotted a couple of these out there in the wild… but here they are all in one place for you to enjoy. So lets crack on!


Glen is currently impressing us all with a Daily Dose of Dwarfs on the Kings of War Fanatics page, but he somehow still managed to find time to paint up the Impalers in 6 different styles. If any of his schemes inspire your own Twilight Kin army, give him a shout-out and make his day!

Ironskull Gaming

Dave at Ironskull is an absolute machine. We sent him a mix of frames from the new Twilight Kin range with a brief of ‘paint up what you like the look of’. Of course he did all of them – and they really compliment the look and tone of his excellent Nightstalker units! You can click here to check out his full write-up and video showcase!

Matt Gee

Matt was kind enough to paint some of our Impalers after finishing his spectacular Northern Alliance army at Clash of Kings. We love the moody purple and blue/grey scheme!

Dan Bird

Dan is famous for his stunning Halfling army he has shown off over the last year or so. He’s now poured his considerable talents into painting up the Void Skiffs and they look stunning!

Billy Capgun

Billy requested the Voidtouched, and delivered a brilliant and hideous troop of these vile mutants. These beasts look incredible on a sandy base! The multi-basing adds a lot of motion to the unit…THEY ARE COMING TO GET YOU!

Dan Cammack

WOW! What can I say about these regiment of Corsairs? It’s a fresh and creative paint scheme that looks brilliant. The otherworldly flesh tone is fantastic, and the scenic base is top notch – I can see this scheme inspiring A LOT of players to try something similar!

Paul Welsh

Paul, the recent winner of the best painted army at Clah of Kings, took a Void Skiff and gave it the ‘Welsh treatment’. The result is a brilliant conversion and paint job: *Chef’s Kiss*!

Chris Walsh

I couldn’t ask community members to paint up some miniatures without asking the ‘Perpetual Painter’ himself to join in. Here are Chris’ Impalers in their full glory, and painted up in flesh tones their shields look straight out of a horror-movie…

Kyle Przelenski

Last, but not least, is our very own Kyle! He made a huge effort to get his army updated ready for the Michigan GT, so we wanted to give him a shout-out. Kyle’s really honed in on the buccaneer aesthetic with his Corsairs, and the result is a colourful unit of swashbucklers that you wouldn’t want to mess with!

Wrapping Up

All of these amazing painters have shown off their colour schemes on social media, and I’m sure they would be happy to talk about how they achieved these awesome results. Please show them your love and appreciation 🙂

We can’t wait to get the Twilight Kin range into your hands (it’s shipping this week!), and see what you can all come up with – there’s so much potential in this range to get creative!

Happy hobbying,

Twilight Kin (Ambush Starter Set)

The Twilight Kin have developed a culture and mindset that has diverged drastically from the other elven kindreds. Though they share a common history, the Twilight Kin have deliberately cast aside the morality and compassion that endowed Elvenholme with much of its grandeur at the height of the kingdom’s power. In their ruthless drive to restore the glories of the past, the Twilight Kin have shed the very essence of that past.

Twilight Kin Army

Dwelling in their underworld caverns for so long has brought physical changes upon the Twilight Kin. They are paler than other elves, their skin taking on a sickly, almost pasty cast. The beauty of their countenances is clouded by a cruelty that has become almost innate to them. The Voidwalkers and those who commune with entities from the Void, have peculiar eyes that convey a terrible intensity that is unnerving to look upon.

Twilight Kin Character: Mikayel, Lord of Nightmares

A Soulbane of nigh-unprecedented cruelty and ambition, Mikayel is known and feared across the vast reaches of Pannithor and beyond. His title, Lord of Nightmares, is well-earned indeed, for none can sleep soundly when Mikayel is abroad. He can strike anywhere he pleases in the lands of mortals and is engaged on a deadly mission to gain ascendancy over the other Dark Lords of the Twilight Kin’s subterranean realm.

Twilight Kin Corsair Voidwalkers / Fleetwardens

The most common military forces of the Twilight Kin that are likely to be encountered are the Corsairs who crew the Nightships. Voidwalkers are skilled with many kinds of weapon and excel at close combat. Often their objective is to subdue rather than kill an enemy, for each captive they take brings them one step closer to achieving the Great Return.

Add to wishlist


Twilight Kin Goredrake

Among the more monstrous components of a Twilight Kin force are the Void-dwellers that have been subjugated by their beastmasters or summoned by their spellcasters. Among these are the Goredrakes, hideous two-headed monstrosities that are capable of slaughtering entire villages on their own.

Add to wishlist


Twilight Kin Heroes

Leading the Corsairs, whether aboard ship or in battle, are the Void Captains and Navigators, while Summoner Crones are thaumaturges whose presence greatly benefits any Twilight Kin force. A Soulbane is the ultimate horror – a stable mutant, so malevolent and warped by the void as to be unrecognisable from the individual that birthed the monster they have become.

Twilight Kin Impalers

The malignant Impalers are a product of twisted experiments: elven warriors locked inside baroque suits of armour. Like the spikes of an iron maiden, the interior of the armour is festooned with obsidian needles, infusing the warrior with the essence of the Void while the design of the armour itself draws entities to infest it.

Add to wishlist


Twilight Kin Mega Army

The scruples of elven character have been conditioned out of each and every member of the Twilight Kin. To become one of their dark cult, an elf must become hardened to torture and savagery. Initiates are tested continually to ensure their hearts have no sympathy for their victims – that no moral doubts will cause them to stray from their devotion to the Great Return.

Add to wishlist


Twilight Kin Void Skiffs

The Void-skiff is a peculiar vessel employed by the Twilight Kin that harnesses the twisted emanations of the dimensional seas to propel itself over any terrain. Levitating over land as easily as water, the Void-skiffs are a little larger than a chariot in size, manned by a crew of one or two Corsairs. In battle, the skiffs deploy the same harpoon-guns they use to attack the more enormous denizens of the Void.

Add to wishlist


Twilight Kin Voidtouched Mutants / Weavers

The Voidtouched are those mortals who have been corrupted and mutated by the dimensional radiations that flow between realities. Those designated as simply Mutants are deformed and crazed creatures, both elf and non-elf, who are simply set loose against opponents by their uncaring masters.

Add to wishlist


Twilight Kin Voidwranglers

Corsair Wranglers are the boldest of the Twilight Kin who crew the Nightships. While the rest of their crews seek to keep the terrifying inhabitants of the Void away from their ships, the Wranglers will deliberately entice these monsters to attack. Using instruments first designed by the Wyrmbreakers to capture the creatures of the underworld, Wranglers strive to subdue the horrors they confront.
