AoS 2 - Kharadron Overlords Discussion

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get back into Sigmar with the KO army I started, but I am having trouble making a 1,000 point list. I want to run Barak-Zilfin because I love the ships but I don't know what to really put in the list because everything is so expensive. Any help is appreciated.

1000 points game seems a bit restrictive for KO.  Remember that GHB2020 is in the horizon and can shake up some lists, but I would go for the basic:

  • 10 arkanauts (battlelines and usually our objective campers).
  • 10 Thunderers (our basic swiss knife: it can give us a lot of dmg with 22 shots, or use fumigators+khemist to defend a zone).

After that, I don't know what to say:

  • I think that a frigate could give you a lot, but I'm so used to play with an Irocnlad that I don't know if that's true or not.
  • For Heroes, I'm usually playing with Navigator, Khemist and sometimes an Endrinmaster.
  • I'm not sure if you need some balloon boyz or not (they are fun to play and 6man unit can do some work on the table), but they are expensive and drop like flies.

Hope that helps a bit!

Maybe try something like that:
 

Allegiance: Kharadron Overlords
- Sky Port: Barak Zilfin

Leaders
Endrinmaster with Endrinharness (100)
- General
- Command Trait: Great Tinkerer  
- Artefact: Staff of Ocular Optimisation  
Aether-Khemist (90)

Battleline
10 x Arkanaut Company (90)
- 1x Skypikes
- 1x Light Skyhooks
- 1x Aethermatic Volley Guns
Arkanaut Frigate (250)
- Main Gun: Heavy Sky Cannon
- Great Endrinworks: Prudency Chutes

Units
5 x Grundstok Thunderers (120)
1 x Grundstok Gunhauler (150)
- Main Gun: Sky Cannon
- Great Endrinworks: Coalbeard's Collapsible Compartments
3 x Endrinriggers (100)
3 x Endrinriggers (100)
Total: 1000 
Wounds: 67

it is pretty flexible, you can change load out on your units to match your play style,  put whoever you want into both ships, and it’s pretty easy to build around start collecting box.

Anybody know if the aetherwar box came with an battalion? And if so is the gunhauler mandatory and what are the points costs?

Looking at Warscroll builder it's Intrepid Prospectors  I think? for 110 pts?

Yes. 3 Skywardens, 3 Endrinriggers, Endrinrigger with balloon, Gunhauler.

110 points, and you can move 6" before the first round.

That's a shame. Can't combine it with a escort wing for a two drop 1,5k army then, Back to the drawing board.

Endrinriggers were made to repair the ships, but they are also the more efficient unit offensivly:

They are more efficient per point (second table) that any other ship and they can attached to other ships. Not so bad for 100 points units.

Just riffing on the escort wing since I couldn’t fit it in a 1,5K list together with the prospectors.

I think that you misunderstood what I was saying. I already know they are awesome, but not sure if they are a must in a 1000 points game because I don't have enough experience
Btw, I'm not sure if we can compare the ships with the balloon boyz, they are apple to orange to me.

yeah you're right. Technically I can. But not within what I was trying to achieve. Low drop with 10 thunderers in a frigate. :D

Yeah, this one looks pretty pathetic, but nothing is impossible for opportunistic privateers. Am I right? :D

You just reminded me of my poor SCE. Let us know how double escort wing works. I’m exited about 20 thuderers, I guess they’re my favourite KO unit. What load out you take for them? I prefer full rifle, because it seem most reliable for me.

Yeah always full rifle for me. One that’s how I modelled most of them 😂

second. I want the option of shooting over screens, keeping my distance and setting up (in this case) gunhaulers as my own screen in between.

Hm, screening thunderers with gunhaulers sounds interesting. I usually put them inside the ship and create shooting platform. I will check it out.

Oh sorry, should have been more clear. 
This was meant specifically with this list. It would have two fun* platforms in the form of 10 thunderers in a frigate, twice. 
but no endrinriggers to fly high alongside of it. So I would probably end up setting the frigate 17,6 inches away and the gunhaulers in between to screen if need be.

i definitely feel other units would be better for it, but they didn’t fit with two escort wings 😅

* autocorrect changed it twice from gun, so I’m just owning it. It works 😂

Man, I fell like “fun platform” should be official term for flying thunderers. :D

Haha it is a bit of kick in the balls for your opponent. 'well now i'm going to set this fun platform 17,6" from your lovely painted models. And i'll fun them to death. Now you can remove them. Fun eh!?'

I’d take those point drops with a pinch of salt personally. These would be in the faq post release. I wouldn’t start planning around them until the faq drops
