Adopt a Zoat

Ever wanted to add a legendary Zoat in your 40k army? Well, now you can!

Look, we’re going to level with you, we don’t really know what a Zoat is.* But we do know that you can now include one in your Warhammer 40,000 army, and they’re pretty awesome. Now it’s time for you to learn why you need one of these mysterious creatures in your life.

First things first, Zoats have the Unaligned keyword, which means that you can include them in any army. If you’re feeling nostalgic, you could add one to your Tyranids force, or if you need a hard-hitting combat monster, you could include one in your T’au Empire army. Even the notoriously xenos-hating forces of the Imperium have been known to ally with the odd Zoat.**

Let’s take a look at how it performs on the tabletop.

That’s a more than respectable set of attributes for a mere 4 Power. Where our centaur-like friend really shines though is with its wargear. We’ve all heard of the Rule of Cool – where you include something in your army just because it sounds incredible. Well, as if a Zoat wasn’t cool enough on its own, how about if it had one of the best-named weapons in Warhammer 40,000?

Just say it. Atomic disassembler. Feels good, right? Then look at those stats – this is a weapon for causing some serious damage. Anything that survives a volley from the atomic disassembler is going to wish they hadn’t when the Zoat follows up with a charge and a swing of its eradicator glove.

While we don’t know how the atomic disassembler works,*** we do know that this glove will definitely eradicate anything it comes into contact with. 

So, whether your army needs another shock trooper or you want someone to hang back and punch enemy units off objectives in your territory, the Zoat is the perfect choice. The awesome new model is available to pre-order from Saturday as part of the Blackstone Fortress expansion, Deadly Alliance. In the meantime, join us on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page to tell us how you’ll be fielding the Zoat in your games.

* We’re starting to think it might be an acronym – Zoatiest of All Time.
** The appearance of Zoat soup on the menu in the Imperial canteen the day after battle is coincidental, surely.
*** From that designation, we assume that it disassembles things atomically, but it could just be a clever name.

    I’ll admit I’m still new to 40k, and maybe I’m missing something because of that, but as good as the stats are for the Zoat are, the fact that it has a movement of 5″ seems a little lacking for what is ostensibly a melee unit.

    My issues with it’s speed aside, the Zoat is a really nice looking model and I love the names of its weapons.
