This is a pretty good deal for only 20 additional points, so if you usually field the Company Captain, the Admiral can be recommended as an update. He is, however, the least interesting of the new Leaders, since he only has access to the Triple ability Fight for Profit , which every Leader has, while the others have another ability to go along with it.
The Admiral is more of a generalist: You can get better abilities, better shooting or slightly better melee and survivability, respectively from other new Leaders, but the Admiral has a pretty solid combination of all three aspects. This new addition to the warband from the Sentinels of Order battletome is both the most expensive fighter type for the Kharadron Overlords warband and the fighter type with the most Wounds. He has a strong ranged attack with high Strength and a critical damage of 6, and the same melee attack as the Arkanaut Admiral.
If you want flying melee damage, the Endrinrigger Leader called the Mizzenmaster has a better melee profile, and if you want ranged damage you get higher range from other fighters with Skyhooks or as good or higher damage output from a Thunderer with Aethercannon or Grundstok Mortar. He would be a cool centerpiece in any Skyriggers-centric warband. This new addition to the warband from the Sentinels of Order battletome is the best melee-centric Leader the Kharadron Overlords Prospectors have.
He has a good melee profile, but it is made even better by his Double ability Supercharged Endrinharness , which adds 1 to Strength and Attacks for his melee attack. This brings him all the way to 5 Attacks, which is great combined with his high Strength and Toughness. This Endrinmaster is great for holding an objective or not getting killed by melee fighters in a battle where killing Leaders is the objective.
But when the rest of your warband is constantly either flying around or positioning itself for shooting opportunities, he can feel a bit out of place, dragging his aether-powered hammer around with a Move characteristic of 3. This new addition to the warband from the Sentinels of Order battletome is the one I would recommend adding to your warband the most. He does everything the Admiral does with just one less Attacks in melee and two fewer Wounds, but makes up for it with a cheaper cost and a really fun unique ability.
His unique ability, the Quad ability Aetherstorm , lets you pick a visible enemy fighter and roll a number of dice equal to the value of the dice rolled for the ability. For each roll of 2 or more you do 3 damage to that fighter. It requires a pretty good Quad roll to be really effective, but since the Navigator is only 5 points more than a Company Captain, there is no reason not to bring him along. Also, he is one of the most thematically fun Kharadron heroes: he is definitely a kind of wizard, manipulating the Aether-storms, but is outfitted and sees himself as a kind of field scientist.
This new addition to the warband from the Sentinels of Order battletome is the cheapest Leader in the warband. He has a pretty mediocre melee attack and no ranged attack. What he does have is a good defensive buff ability, the Triple Atmospheric Isolation , which subtracts 1 from enemy Attacks characteristics within a bubble around him.
Since he is so cheap, this ability makes him a strong Hero option for your warband for holding objectives or keeping your shooting infantry alive. The warband has 5 different Arkanaut Company fighter types. This means that they are both your slowest and weakest fighters. However, they are also your cheapest fighters, and they have access to some weapons as others of your more expensive flying fighters. The most basic version of the Arkanaut Privateer Company with Privateer Pistol and Arkanaut Cutter has a Strength 3 shooting attack with no minimum range and a Strength 3 melee attack, which is okay for his cost.
The Leader version, the Company Captain , is a lot like the basic version, but with more attacks at both ranged and melee range, a better damage profile for their melee attack, and 10 extra wounds. Place one or more of these next to a Leader on an objective buffing them, and you can take down much more expensive fighters in melee!
The two specialized shooters of the Arkanaut Company offer you the choice between high damage or a high number of attacks: A Light skyhook has a range of 20 and a critical damage of 5, but only 2 attacks. A Volley Gun has 6 attacks with 1 damage each and 3 critical damage, but at a 15 inch range. Both these fighters also have a melee attack that is just like the basic Arkanaut version but with one less Attack.
Due to their slow movement, the Arkanaut Company fighters are best used for keeping back objectives and providing covering fire, but since they are also cheaper than your otherwise rather elite fighter options, they are your best bet at matching other warbands with a lot of models on the table.
The Kharadron Overlords have access to 6 different Grundstok Thunderers fighter types, where one is a Leader. They have the same Wounds and Move characteristics as the Arkanaut Company, but they have 4 Toughness and access to the Triple ability Keep Your Distance which gives them a bonus disengage action. It also has the same melee attack as the Arkanaut Company special weapons fighters. This fighter type definitely needs a Leader close by to boost its number of attacks. The Leader version, the Gunnery Sergeant has twice the ranged attacks of the basic version, a better critical damage in melee, and access to both the Triple Leader ability and the Double ability Harrying Drillbill , which prevents one enemy fighter within 20 inches from making disengage actions.
The 4 special weapon options for the Grundstok Thunderers are a lot more interesting than the basic versions:. In general, the Grundstok Thunderers are a tougher version of the Arkanauts, with abilities that better complement a close quarters combat style, but they are more expensive and still very slow.
The Skyriggers are divided in 12 different fighter types, including 2 Leaders, split into two groups with nearly identical weapons loadouts: Endrinriggers , which have the Fly ability, and Skywardens which have the Fly ability and the Quad ability Timed Charges , which lets you do damage to a nearby enemy equal to the value of the diced rolled for the ability as well as a bonus disengage action.
All non-Leader fighters of both kinds have a Move statistic of 10, a Toughness of 4 and 16 wounds. The Endrinriggers are mainly useful for their high-Strength melee attacks. This requires you to have the dice for the Quad ability of course, but its an interesting option to have in your arsenal, since it damages all enemy fighters within 1 inch of your Skywarden.
The Leader version of the basic Skywarden, the Custodian , has one more melee attack and 10 more wounds. If you need a flying Leader, this is often the one to go for. Both types of Skyriggers then have access to the Aethermatic Volley Gun , which is just like the one for the Arkanaut Company, but much more useful when equipped on a flying fighter.
They also have access to Skyhooks which are almost like Arkanaut skyhooks except an extra point of regular damage. Finally, the Skyriggers have access to two special weapons unique to them. The Drill Launcher has 3 Strength 5 attacks with a critical damage of 4.
The other unique weapon, the Grapnel Launcher has a much weaker ranged attack, but it comes with the Double ability Grapnel Launcher which lets you pick a point or obstacle within 20 inches and then teleport to within 3 inches of that point. Bjorgen is an Aether-Khemist and as such he shares the same ability to reduce enemy attacks Atmospheric Isolation and the same melee weapon profile.
He does cost almost the double of an Aether-Khemist although. Khazgan has the same profile of a Skywarden with Vulcaniser Pistol and Skypike with 2 more Wounds but no Timed Charges ability for a higher cost making him a sub-optimal choice. Dead-eye Lunden has the same profile as a Grundstok Thunderer with Aethershot Rifle, including the ability to disengage from an enemy without using an action.
Same for Garodd that shares the same profile of the Privateer armed with Pistol and Cutter. Over 10, words. So settle in for the ride. And, as always, check out Dark Fantastic Mills for great 3D printed terrain perfect for wargaming.
Its super versatile and light so worldwide shipping is inexpensive. Kharadron Overlords are an awesome looking army, with its maneuverable shooting playstyle unique in Warhammer Age of Sigmar. Its been a rollercoaster for the duardin of the skyports. When they were first released, in AoS 1. But much has changed. But there is still hope. As an opening point, you cannot simply read from the battletome when starting a Kharadron Overlords army.
We are the only army who had a warscroll completely changed in a Generals Handbook, and I think its important to go over the major changes made. First, the Grundstock Thunderer warscroll got a complete overhaul shortly after it was published. This is no longer the case, as only one of each weapon, except for the Aethershock rifle, can only be taken once for every 5 models, so a squad of 20 could take 4 cannons, 4 mortars, etc. This changed Thunderers from being extremely powerful and an auto include unit, to just another option in the book.
If you put Endrinriggers in that airship, it almost always guaranteed them a turn one charge every game. There have been other, minor changes. However, despite all these negative changes, I believe Kharadron Overlords are still relevant, if perhaps overlooked in the current meta. That being said, Kharadron Overlords are not an army for beginners. They are a glass cannon faction and will punish you for every mistake.
Even 40 Arkanauts will die in a round of combat to some of the scarier things out there. In this article, I want to cover all the Skyports, and what they can bring to your army, as well as give an overview of all our units and battalions not that there are many and give my thoughts on where they fit in our army. Each Skyport comes with a pre-set Artycle and Amendment, as well as a unique footnote for each Skyport, as well as some unique command ability or artefact. These are the allegiance abilities for Kharadron Overlords.
All six Skyports have positives and negatives, but in my opinion, only two are competitively viable. This is alright, it can mean the difference between 1 or 6 models lost from a unit. This is a once a game ability, that lets all your heroes unbind one additional spell, to the one they already could thanks to Trust aethermatics, not superstition.
It works well with the rest of the Skyports abilities. Using this you can put a Khemist in the middle of your gunline, and never have to worry about them running. Where it shines, is its ability to keep an entire gunline from running without spending any command points.
Definitely not the worst option, but not the greatest ether. This is extremely useful against Nighthaunt, and because so many large monsters have fly Nagash, Stardrakes, Allariele, etc. This ability lets all airships automatically roll a 6 when running.
This is a once-a-game ability that allows you to move an airship in the hero phase. This ability is still a bit of a sore spot for me, as you used to be able to move a ship with it, and then disembark, but as of the latest FAQ they removed this ability. This is the other huge benefit Barak-Zilfin have.
Barak-Zilfin is, in my opinion, the best choice of Skyport. It also gives you access to Aetherspheric Endrins which I believe is the only viable uses of an airship now. This allows your heroes to re-roll hits and wounds of 1 against monsters and heroes. But Admirals and Brokk already get this naturally, so the only ones it affects are a Khemist in shooting, and an Endrinmaster.
This once-per-game ability lets you pile out of an airship in your hero phase, and immediately charge. Which it can only do in Barak-Zilfin. I suppose it gives you an extra chance to charge, but you need to do it before you can move, so your unit will probably be out of position. In my opinion, this is absolutely useless. There are just better ways to get this bonus. This lets a hero with this artefact always pile in and attack first. Arkanauts with skypikes will get killed by even Liberators in combat, and a Kharadron Overlords army always need to take 3 squads of them as battleline , so you really want your army to support them.
This does not. This ability allows you to reroll battleshock for units wholly within enemy territory. Its good for large units of Endrinriggers who you want over there, but Thunderers get it naturally, and Arkanauts should stay back in your lines. This lets you take an extra artefact. Kharadron Overlords have some good ones, and with access to all the realm artefacts now, this is a pretty good option. This ability is probably the reason you want to take this Skyport. It lets a Khemist target 2 different weapons from either 1 or 2 squads to buff, instead of just 1.
Sadly, still no doubling buffs up on weapons. This is a cool artefact for Ironclads only. When an Ironclad flies over a unit, roll a dice for every model in the unit, and if you roll at least one 6, the unit takes D3 mortal wounds. Still, I think Last Word is better. This Skyport is very hit-and-miss with me. But on the other hand, I only had to buy one Khemist, and those extra points gave me 3 extra Endrinriggers, or 3 extra Skyhooks!
However, this also seemed like a trap to me, it was putting all of my aether eggs into one Khemist-Shaped basket. So, if the opponent could snipe him out, no more buffs for anyone. I recommend, if you want to take this Skyport to make a pure gunline army. Still take 2 Khemists with 2 big units of Arkanaut Skyhooks and whole bunch of Endrinriggers, to get the most out of the 4 Khemist buffs you have. My Second Favourite Skyport! This ability allows all Kharadron Overlords to run and shoot in turn one.
This is where your mobility comes from! This once-per-game ability allows you to pick a unit to either charge or fight in your herophase. I always forget about this though, so write it down somewhere! And you can pick a new unit every turn! I love this ability. If you have this and a Khemist next to an Arkanaut squad with 12 Skyhooks you can effectively point and click a unit away every turn. I love Barak-Mhornar, it makes such a devastating army.
Its command trait lets you make a nasty gunline, and it gives your Endrinriggers enough buffs so that they can really get to work. Last, but not least looking at you Barak-Zon , Barak-Thryng is a bit random in their buffs, and not great right now, but probably a solid option if the meta ever switches away from taking big flying monsters or units.
It lets you select an enemy unit at the start of the game, and your whole army gets to reroll hits and wounds of 1 against it. However, thanks to Log of grudges , you can select D3 enemy units instead. This is actually a really nice bravery-based ability. This gives you a once-per-game reroll. Similarly, priority rolls are also done out of phase, so no luck there either. Lets a hero reroll all failed hits and wounds against a unit chosen by Log of grudges.
Barak-Thryng is alright. In addition to these abilities all Skyports can pick an additional once-per-game ability from the footnote list. In every list. It allows you to add D3 mortal wounds to any weapon damage you do. Kharadron Overlords have some good choices, but nothing incredible. The unique thing about Kharadron Overlords is that for every one artefact we can take, we can take one hero artefact and one airship artefact.
That being said, we still have a couple good options;. If he gets caught out by any dedicated combat unit, he will disappear. Mhornar allows you to run and shoot turn 1. I think this goes really well with Endrinriggers and should allow you to pull off a devastating turn. I would really suggest not to try and use this as an alpha strike.
He does three things. Keep your gunline in place, let ships run and shoot and combat. Leave this guy at home. I think this guy has a place, despite not being able to put out any kind of damage. The buffs the Khemist dispenses are so integral to a Kharadron Overlords army, that I think the entire army should be built around him.
Thunderers, are also a good target, turning their two shot rifle into a three shot rifle. I usually run two in any Kharadron Overlords list I build. Just be careful. He has the best weapons out of all the characters and can actually do decent damage in combat. His airship healing ability is nice, but ultimately not good enough for the amount of damage the airships usually take.
