Some new miniatures are making their way to the tabletop for the Kharadron Overlords and the Mortal Realms of Age Of Sigmar by Games Workshop. Leading the way is Brokk Grungsson, Lord-Magnate of Barak-Nar.
“Brokk Grungsson exemplifies the self-made Kharadron Overlord privateer. He is rapacious in the hunt for aether-gold, and daring in his explorations of the skybound wonders of Chamon. Brokk Grungsson is the only Admiral that has successfully led a fleet around the Spire, the fabled Horn of Chamon.
Some Kharadron would be satisfied having achieved such honours, but Brokk Grungsson strives on, hungry for ever-more success and recognition – his natural aeronautical abilities and aggressive nature mean these successes are rarely far from his grasp.”
This fellow with his rather fetching top hat is one of the characters that made people sit up and take notice of the Kharadron Overlords as something a little different. I don’t really know whether or not it’s the most functional attire for combat but it does give you a very different take on the Duardin.
Navigate The Skies
Matching him, and keeping your ships on the straight and narrow we also have the Aetheric Navigator…
“Masters of the guiding winds, Aetheric Navigators are aero-cartographers, atmospheric map-makers that help chart courses, find currents and steer along perilous trade routes. Even the most journeyed Admirals value the counsel of an Aetheric Navigator, for they can see barometric eddies and electro-aetheric vortices, and can plot a course through such hazards.
Using a plethora of mechanical wonders, an Aetheric Navigator can influence the winds to gain the weather gauge, speed up his fleet or slow down flying foes. They can even call upon aetheric currents to disrupt enemy spells, and their keen eyes ensure that they are proficient in the use of firearms.”
Once again the aesthetic of the Kharadron Overlords is basically exemplified here. I actually like all the gizmos and whirlygigs he has around his armour and you can tell a little about his character as he is fascinated by that gem clutched before him.
A Worthy Vessel
Last but not least we also have the Arkanaut Ironclad…
Armed with all manner of big guns and with a crew manning the deck this looks like it will be the mainstay of your force.
It is bristling with guns and you can even pack it with some of your Arkanaut Company Duardin and Thunderers to make sure they get to where they need to be.
What do you think of these new releases for the Kharadron Overlords?
