Kurnoth are 50% more durable *without* rerollable saves. 

Ranged
Kurnoth does 2 * .5 * .666 * .666 * 2 = 0.89
Skyfire does 1 * .333 * .666 * .666 * 2 = 0.30 (regular) plus 1 * .333 * 2 = 0.67 for a total of 0.97 (assuming shaman is near).

Melee
Kurnoth does 3 * .5 * .5 * .5 * 1 = 0.38 plus 1.5 mortal for 1.88 total.
Skyfire does 2 * .55 * .55 * .5 * 1 = 0.30 plus 1 * .75 * .55 * .5 * 1 = 0.21  plus 2 * .75 * .888 * .666 * 2 = 1.77 for 2.28 total

Skyfires are definitely not better than Kurnoth.

Edit: added rerolls for skyfires.  

Skyfires do 18% more damage, but are 66% as durable before Kurnoth rerolls.  That they fly makes up for this.

Actually Kunoth is good for reliability not damage at all. They are tactical option because they are more tough than most tanky units in other army list.

Talking about damage so many range units can do much better than Kunoth like Prosecutors with Javelin or Hearth Guard. 

 

These guys need to be compared with Prosecutors, which is short ranged but very mobile.

Posecutors are half points and 6 of them can do 4*0.66*0.66*0.66*2=2,37  and another 4*0.66*0.66*0.5*2=1,78 do total 4.148.

3 Skyfire can do 2.91.

 

Prosecutors are even tougher as same wound count but 4+ reroll 1.

No Tzaangor Enlightened / Skyfires on pre-order this week, which is a shame.

Shaman is £20, and the Tzaangors are getting an AoS box for £25 without the 40k bits.

In which case, awesome! But they weren't on the product brief my local GW manager received.

Edit: Any idea on the cost?

I was hoping for an elite tzeentch warrior unit along the lines of Wrathmongers or Blightkings. New kits are lubbly though.

I was at a store yesterday and we were talking about the new DoT releases and he said the only thing that was stopping him from going HAM on DoT was the confirmation of new duardin in 2 months

So there's that...

2 Months !!! ??? but I will never be able to wait that long I thought Duardin would be release end of January beginning of February...

Gives me more time to remortgage, sell the car and get my wife and kids jobs to support the release :)

Mis-read that as "sell the car, my wife and kids"

That's definitely AoS. Look, there's a hammer on that gun. I've flipped through a lot of 40k models and there is no instance of a pistol with a firing hammer, even on the "archaic" Inquisition weaponry.

Nah, this is either a Duardin or a Witch Hunter.

I dunno. The archaic nature of greyfax's bolter looks relatively similar to this.

Nah, look at her again. It's literally just a bolter with a Crossbow slapped on top, this totally looks medieval/fantasy to me.

Enough for me. I would be worried that this is too techy otherwise.
