Recap

  1. Use your Normal Movement to walk into range.
    Regardless of your melee weapon range, head-butts have a 0.5" range except for colossals and gargantuans which have a 2" head-butt range.
  2. Declare the target and pay the focus/fury.
    You cannot target a model with a larger base.
  3. Make a melee attack roll vs the target.
  4. If it hits, the target becomes knocked down.
  5. Then make a power attack damage roll (2d6 + STR) vs the target.

Detailed

There really aren't any more details. The recap covers it all already.

Official Rules

From page 40 of the 2020.02.pdf

A model making a head-butt power attack smashes its head into a model to drive it to the ground. A head-butt power attack made by a colossal or gargantuan has a 2˝ melee range. A head-butt power attack made by any other model has a 0.5˝ melee range. The attacking model makes a melee attack roll against its target. If the attack hits, the target becomes knocked down (p. 61) and then suffers a power attack damage roll.
A model cannot head-butt a model with a larger base.
