Confirmed, only one of each special weapon in the Thunderer box. Get swapping.


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.
I'd be inclined to agree normally, but this is in addition to the arkanaut infantry that seem to also have had warscroll changes post-sculpt.

I know one of my LGS didn't receive their order of Overlords yesterday, and I understand that other stores have mentioned it happening as well - anyone else heard of stores GW has messed around on this release?

I'm very on the fence about getting some Thunderers for my Order army. All armed with mortars (which I think I could get enough of, true Kharadron players are probably going to prefer the cannons and deck-sweepers) they would be awesome, but it's a bit of an uninspiring modelling project.

Bye bye Dakkadakka, happy hobbying! I really enjoyed my time on here. Opinions were always my own :-)

Seeing how the mortar is more of a rifle grenade, making more should not be that hard. In a pinch Ogryn grenades would work, or the drill bombs on the vessels. Rifles there are more than enough to choose from, but I might create a grenade crossbow, WW1-style.

The Gunhauler should be cheaper, IMO.

Nice tacit defence of GW there, making it out as if they're not unique down here, but this site already has a Kanluwen. We don't need a second.

But that aside, this box is terrible value.

5 guys w/5 guns, + 5 specialist guns.

Take the (also stupidly priced) Devastator Squad. It's AUD$8 more, also 5 guys, and look what you get in it:

2 Missile Launchers
2 Grav-Cannons
2 Plasma Cannons
2 Multi-Meltas
2 Heavy Bolters
2 Lascannons
1 Combi-Plasma
1 Combi-Flamer
1 Combi-Melta
1 Combi-Grav
1 Storm Bolter
1 Power Sword
1 Power Axe
1 Power Fist
1 Lightning Claw
1 Thunder Hammer
1 Chainsword
1 Plasma Pistol
1 Bolt Pistol
1 Grav Pistol
1 Partridge
1 Pear Tree

There's a disconnect here. It's almost the same price for a vastly inferior kit. I mean I think they look fantastic, but the amount of options you get in the box is total gak.

I'm not defending GW. I'm just remarking the fact that you're a penal colony and thus must be bled dry in order to attone for your forefathers crimes. REPENT THY SINS!

And who the hell gives meelee weapons to devastators anyways?

On moon miranda.

While the models here look great, seeing airships and gatling guns and thunderhammers and power armor makes this stuff look way more suited to 40k.

Actually most of the stuff looks like it came out of Warmachine stylistically, at least visually.

Doesn't really seem to fit with a fantasy universe, but I guess Age of Sigmar isn't really trying to stick with that anymore either.

It's more akin to divers suit given that they are basically 5+ ingame.

Superb release imo. Been out of touch with 40k/AoS for a bit but the feel and look of these guys is excellent.
Would be tempted to pick some up and make up some homebrew squat rules or proxy them as IG in some whacky form.
The airships and the paint jobs on them are terrific as is the level of detail.

SC boxes haven't been released alongside the armies. The closes was the DW kit 2-3 months after release, but then again, DW kits are basically marine kits with an extra sprue, so they can serve DW players and SM players. Releasing an SC box alongside its army wouldn't make much financial sense, anyway. Sales of a new range are going to be high at launch. You'd lose revenue on individual kits if there was a better bundle like an SC available at the same time. You want to save that for a few months later to boost sales after that "new army smell" wears off. GSC still haven't gotten a SC box, and they came out at pretty much the same time as DW. I would expect sometime around June or July to see GSC and DoT get SC boxes, possibly alongside KO, but I'd really expect to see a KO SC closer to Christmas.

I'm glad there aren't multi kit ships this time. We would end up paying more for one ship, and end up with a bunch of worthless leftovers. The only thing missing is a couple more head options so if you field a few then the crew can get unique looks.

Not sure if I like Duncans painting guide or the WD one more. The WD one has drakenhof nightshade for the armor, a more rich purple and different golds. Duncans scheme is a bit more dull in color but also quicker to paint with a single wash over the entirety of the model. Gotta make some decisions about how i'm gonna do this...regardless I know I like the gold/purple scheme the most.

Wouldn't mind seeing a Kharadron Overlords ranking system/naming on this site either...

The units are the ranks. The only one not immediately apparent is Captain, which is pretty intuitive.

Shame on you if you didn't readed that singing.

Since they are named now "the Revenant Legions", I wonder if they are just renaming Deathrattle, or if GW will make a new expansion for them a la Sylvaneth.

No, this thread is for AoS, considering the previous one already passed over 220 pages when it was closed. This thread picks up from the latest AoS releases, Kharadron Overlords, but is not exclusive for them.

At this point AoS is popular enough to warrant separate threads for different topics.

And separate threads have to be made on AoS forum. We still could use a general AoS news here, and I'm sure that's the intention of the OP.
