Today we have a look at more of the Man-O-War releases (that’s the Khadoran heavy “power” – armored infantry, not the metal band), including the new Man-O-War Tanker and the Chosen of Everblight.
The more I see of this theme force, the more excited I am. It truly embraces the Khadoran principle and aesthetic. Of course it would be Men-O-War making up their first big theme force. Embodying the heavy armor and the stalwart resilience that defines Khador, these minis look intimidating. Plus come see the last release for the Everblight Theme Force as well!
Why accomplish with technology and magic what brute force and manpower can do instead? If you can’t think of an answer (like, to allow for manpower to be used more efficiently to be more productive and accomplish greater things), then the new Man-O-War theme force might be for you. Take a look!

Man-O-War tankers are a response to the more impressive armaments and engines of war that Khador now finds set against it. Tankers support their smaller companions in battle, girding them with massive armored shields and laying down heavy supporting fire. Suppression tankers are armed with a pair of volley guns, each being a multiple-barreled light cannon able to fire single chambers in rapid succession or multiple barrels simultaneously.
Man-O-War tankers are a response to the more impressive armaments and engines of war that Khador now finds set against it. Tankers support their smaller companions in battle, girding them with massive armored shields and laying down heavy supporting fire. Strike tankers are armed with slug cannons, a high-caliber, armor-piercing shoulder-mounted weapon. At full power, a slug cannon can breach bunker walls and other fortifications, and its shot is similarly effective against battle engines and colossals.
The Chosen of Everblight are a special strain of blighted ogrun transformed by the effect of blighted blood. Once a Chosen arises from its reshaping, it towers above all others of its race, become a fusion of both rider and mount. A layer of hardened scales covers the lower half of their muscular bodies. Packs of the Chosen bound across the battlefield in great leaps, ripping apart their foes with hooked talons or their pole cleavers. The Chosen feast on the bodies of the dead, allowing their draconic flesh to knit even mortal wounds.
There are more units, of course, including a few Bombardier options, but we’ll have more on those as the June 15th release date draws closer.
Until then, for the glory of Khador, remember to polish your armor and be loaded for bear.
