“Landing next week, a brand new race for the Mortal Realms.
Forget everything you knew about duardin – these technologically gifted descendants of Grungni are lords of the skies and masters of the strange alchemical science of harvesting and using aether-gold – the mysterious power source of their wondrous sky-fleets.”
As a concept, I love the idea of “Dwarven Steampunk Airships” and the execution in terms of modeling is pretty fantastic. I know I’ve been looking forward to their release since GAMA. It was the first time in a long time that Games Workshop announced a completely new race with an entirely different theme. Before this we had the more traditional Tolkien-fantasy dwarf themes. You know what I mean:
With these models it looks like Games Workshop has managed to take those same themes and translate them to this new faction. And really, Pirates and Tolkien-Dwarves have one big thing in comming: Drinking!
It comes in pints?! Actually, it’s a couple ounces over or under* depending on where you’re from.
I, for one, welcome our new Kharadron Overlords. I hear they like to party.
