Battletome: Kharadron Overlords contains all the essential information, needed to start a Kharadron Overlords army. This 144-page book introduces the new Duardin into the realms of Warhammer Age of Sigmar and contains a detailed background and history, including maps, army structure, uniforms and heraldry guides. The new rules contain Battleplans, Warscroll battalions, Warscrolls and rules for playing these new miniatures within the different ways of Age of Sigmar play.
In the 144-page hardback Battletome: Kharadron Overlords, you’ll find:
Rules - The Sky-Ports: each of the 6 named sky-ports in the Battletome have their own unique interpretation of the Kharadron Code, meaning their armies vary wildly in terms of play style – this includes unique Abilities and Artefacts of Power, and unique amendments to the included Warscroll Battalions: - Barak-Nar armies are masters of science, and are adept at unbinding the spells of their enemies using aethermatics; - Barak-Zilfin armies are the finest aeronautical sailors, whose units can move and dodge with unprecedented speed; - Barak-Zon armies seek glory in valour, and rarely shy away from a fight, charging in and attacking with gusto; - Barak-Urbaz armies are alchemical geniuses, with a higher capacity for artefacts of power; - Barak-Mhornar armies are indefatigable opportunists, striking suddenly from unexpected quarters; - Barak-Thryng armies hold unbreakable grudges, and will fight to the death until scores are settled; - Allegiance Abilities, Command Traits and Battle Traits for armies who belong to sky-ports other than the 6 named in the book – combine Artycles, Amendments and Footnotes to assemble your own interpretation of the Kharadron Code; - Artefacts of Power: Great Endrinworks to be assigned to any Kharadron Skyvessel with Aethermatic Weapons and Treasures of the Sky-Ports for Kharadron heroes; - 5 Battleplans: fight battles that epitomise the Kharadron Overlords’ way of war, with unique rules for each; - 5 Warscroll Battalions, providing extra rules and special tactics for collections of miniatures; - 12 Warscrolls, containing the rules for your Kharadron Overlord miniatures; - Pitched Battle profiles with points values for every miniature and Warscroll Battalion; - A guide to a Path to Glory campaign – create a warband to fight alongside a Hero, and gain favour throughout a series of battles, gaining followers, swelling the ranks and earning rewards, eventually cementing the warband’s place in history; - Tips on building and deploying your force, with example armies featuring hints on deployment direct from the designers. Painting & Modelling - A guide to Citadel paints for the beginner, detailing how each paint type is applied and in what context; - Detailed, stage-by-stage guides presenting the colours and techniques used to paint the armies of the 6 named sky-ports; - Kharadron Features: this goes into that little bit more detail on certain aspects of Kharadron miniatures – the portholes, dome and optics, along with verdigris, a basic guide to markings, weathering and constructing scenic bases; - Tips and tricks for streamlining and improving your hobby: sub-assemblies, kitbashing and painting artefacts.

Please note, you’ll need a copy of Battletome: Kharadron Overlords to use the contents of this set.
Brokk Grungsson is multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble one model, Lord-Magnate of Barak-Nar.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar model comprises 46 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 50mm Round base, with a 35mm ball and socket flying stem.
Arkanaut Admiral is a multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble an Arkanaut Admiral. He leads Kharadron Overlords armies into battle by example, charging into the fray wielding a huge skalfhammer and volley pistol. His knowledge of the Kharadron Code is second to none, which proves a great advantage in a fight. His ornate armour is covered in pipes, valves and gadgets – years of service have meant many augmentations to make combat and leadership easier. The miniature stands atop a molten heap of industrial waste, adding detail to his base.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar model comes as 12 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
Aetheric Navigator is a multi-part plastic kit containing the components necessary to assemble one model.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar model comes as 10 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
Aether Khemist Kharadron contains the components necessary to assemble one model. He lugs around a number of heavy instruments, useful for both analysing the air around him and bludgeoning anyone who gets in his way, and his atmospheric anatomiser blasts foes with clouds of noxious aether – or steals away the very air around them, suffocating them quickly and painfully. His sealed armour is covered in detail, from the various lenses used to peer at the composition of the elements to the filters in his mask used to ‘taste’ the air around him.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar kit comes as 12 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
Endrinmaster Kharadron contains the components necessary to assemble one model. Covered in details signifying his genius in maintaining the complex machinery of the skyfleets, he wields a massive aetherhammer – this is connected to his suit by pipes and metal arms, implying incredible weight only he could lift. His headgear, as well as a variety of lenses used to aid diagnostics, features the ‘God’s Eye’; a beam emitter that can cut through and weld metal (with a nice secondary use in blasting enemies), and he’s brimming with tools and equipment for battlefield repairs; the Endrinmaster goes so far as carrying an anvil into battle for on the spot repairs!!
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar kit is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base and comes as 13 components.
Arkanaut Company is a multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 10-model Arkanaut Company. They have a variety of weapons available: each wields a privateer pistol and Arkanaut cutters, and up to 3 models can optionally take one each of a skypike, multi-barrelled aethermatic volley gun or light skyhook. Their Captain can take either a volley pistol or aetherflare pistol, and has the option to brandish an anchor!
The Company themselves are the main fighting troops of a Kharadron Overlords army, and thus haven’t yet accrued enough aether-gold to make their armour as ornate as that of their superiors. Still, they sport magnificent metal beards, and their sealed suits are replete with the valves and fittings needed to keep them alive.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar kit comprises 83 components, and is supplied with 10 Citadel 25mm Round bases.
Skyriggers Kharadron are multi-part plastic miniatures that can be assembled as:
Endrinriggers are repairmen and maintenance workers – and yet so much more. Their tools of the trade, rivet guns and aethermatic saws, can be turned against an encroaching foe just as easily as they can be used to patch up a creaking Gunhauler.
Skywardens are elite aerial cavalry, experts in hit-and-run attacks that shock enemies with powerful vulcaniser pistols and vicious skypikes. They have a tendency to spread chaos with their timed explosives, jetting away in a blast of aether-vapour as detonations ring out.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar kit comes with 6 Citadel 32mm Round bases and 2 each of the following flying stem sizes: 30mm, 32.5mm and 35mm.
Grundstok Thunderers is a multi-part plastic kit containing the components necessary to assemble 5 models, professional soldiers and the main fighting force of the Kharadron Overlords. Each is armed with an aethershot rifle, with some impressively chunky special weapons available as options – an aetheric fumigator, a Grundstok mortar (with an extra bomb for modelling on the base), an aethercannon (so powerful that the duardin carrying it needs a blast shield) and a five-barrelled gun known as the Decksweeper. Their sealed suits of armour are covered in valves, pipes and respiratory systems used to make the air palatable to their aether-gold addled lungs.
There are options for a gunnery sergeant and honour bearer – the gunnery sergeant wields a special double-barrelled aethershot rifle, can be modelled with a prosthetic leg, has 2 differing head options and features a Drillbill: a bizarre mechanical bird who can launch himself at enemies. The honour bearer features a keystone added to his suits’ power pack.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar kit comes as 61 components, and is supplied with 5 Citadel 32mm Round bases.
Grundstok Gunhauler is a multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble one model. Small and agile, it features as a main armament a choice of sky cannon or drill cannon. Two duardin crew the Gunhauler: a pilot who stands at a large rack of arcane instruments, and a gunner who controls the aethershot carbine, fragmentations charges, detonation drills and belaying valves used to gently dissuade enemies from getting too close to the main fleet.
Despite its relatively diminutive size, the Grundstok Gunhauler is covered in detail: ailerons and rudders to steer it, duardin faceplates on the prow and dirigible, and a host of pipes, valves and propellors giving it a truly industrial feel. There’s even an anchor swaying gently from the side.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar model comes in 50 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 105mm Oval base, and 50mm ball and socket flying stem.
Arkanaut Frigate is a multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble one model. Smaller than an Ironclad, larger than a Gunhauler, it dominates the skies by means of its dirigible and is covered in weaponry – a heavy skycannon or skyhook as a front-facing main weapon, with aethershot carbines, grudgesettler bombs, skymines and detonation drills attached to the hull, with belaying valves for ramming-speed assaults.
A huge ancestor figurehead glares balefully from the prow, and the duardin crew is appropriately detailed – a captain stands before the instruments and wheel, a navigator perches in the crow’s nest, sextant aloft and an endrinrigger wields an oil can and hammer, fervently replacing rivets and lubricating components to keep the Frigate skyward. Most of these details can be modelled on the frigate in different ways; there’s plenty of space on the side of the hull to name the ship. Paint it on in duardin runes for authenticity!
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar kit comes as 88 components and includes a Citadel 120mm Oval base, with a 50mm ball and socket flying stem.
Arkanaut Ironclad is a plastic kit containing the components necessary to assemble one model.
The crew of the Ironclad comprise a captain standing at the ship’s wheel; an endrinrigger with various tools hanging off the side, fixing an important leak; a gunner to stand at the main weapon and a signaller and navigator.
This Warhammer Age of Sigmar model comprises 152 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 170mm Round base and 50mm ball and socket flying stem.
