Yep- I think they are my favourite unit of the release [and I love everything]. Definitely going to have a load of the sky riggers/wardens.

Hmmmm, element games seem to have limited stock of these. Are GW limiting the amount they are giving to online sellers?

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Probably just wary of overselling preorders thanks to GW's habit of shorting indie retailers if a release proves really popular and they need extra webstore stock.

On the Bobblenoughts I've come to agree with ninthmusketeer and silverstu, I really like 'em, and at first they were the part of the release I was least keen on. Still not quite sure of that Tophat McMechabaron character version, but the slightly derpy artwork of him makes me like him a little more than I thought I would.

Anyway I'm surrendering to the inevitable and planning out a small force of these guys - once I start coming up with mental 40K conversion ideas for steampunk Skitarii drop regiments from a gas giant Forgeworld, I expect I'm past the point of no return.

I need to acquire plastic Skavenslaves, can you help?

My fav models of the range. Aetheric Navigator > Ironclad > Gunhauler > Skywardens > Brokk.

I like the whole range (wouldn't get them if I didn't), but these are the stand outs for me. The Aetheric Navigator is so steampunk it hurts.

I'm brainstorming color scheme ideas. My favorite idea thus far is copper/bronze with a heavy patina and using some green stuff to add caked-on cloudlimpets to the bottom of the vessel as if it has been 'sailing' for a while.

Question - do GW stores still get a "store copy" of new books you can look through before you buy? Considering I'm more likely to end up using these in Dragon Rampant than AoS the rules aren't hugely valuable to me so I'd only be buying the book for the fluff, and I've been singularly unimpressed with that aspect of AoS so far, so I'm not keen to chuck down GW prices on a book that I might end up reading once then sticking on a shelf to taunt me about my poor impulse control(hallo thar, Iron Hands special edition SM codex in which GW, IMO, ruined your fluff).

Thunderers have also been the name of Dwarf Handgunners since forever...

So y'know, there's that.


And before that it was the name of squat heavy weapon teams. So there's that.

I've not followed AoS in a while but I notice the rules don't have points. Do you have to buy a rulebook for that?

Actually, they appeared at the same time, both in 1987 with rogue trader and 3rd ed.

So we can leave it at GW being unimaginative instead of searching the pirates' missing bikes and leather jackets.

GHB covers you, plus giving you missions and a path to glory system. pretty nifty for 20 euros.

These, though, will need of the Kharadron book as this year's GHB didn't have as much foresight.

No, points are free on www.scrollbuilder.com which has been aquired by GW. You can also get them in the General's Handbook which will be updated about once a year.

Yes. It's going to be integrated with the Warhammer Community page at some point, supposedly.

So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

While not 100% KO related I've heard on TGA.Community that on saturday at 2:00pm there will be an announcement for which apparently staff are to be briefed about ten minutes beforehand.

Set does contain 5 of the rifles though, just not the 'special weapons.'

*EDIT* Actually contains 6, as one is the double-barrelled sergeant's rifle.

Seems like they originally intended special weapons being 1 or 2 per 5 rather than anybody.

Doubtful, I believe it's just the standard "mixing weapons is totally a good idea, right guyz?" thing GW does.
