Games Workshop have announced the new faction for Age of Sigmar - Kharadron Overlords. And they look really unusual.
This is a faction of steampunk dwarves There were rumors that sneak pics with machines belonged to the revived Squats. However, they appeared a completely new faction.
They are very unusual for Age of Sigmar since they strongly rely on shooting. It's interesting, how they might change the balance of power - among the melee factions they can become something like Tau in 40K.
Nevertheless, they look really tough they will have a lot of mobile units.
The design is awesome - there was nothing like this before in the Warhammer universe.
The diversity of flying boat vehicles reminds of the Dark Eldar from Warhammer 40K. Anyway, these dwarves will be much tougher.
The Kharadron Overlords are a militaristic, mercantile society that deviate quite dramatically from the other branches of their duardin kin. They are never seen outside of their armor, so few in the Realms truly know what they look like.
But it was not always so. Tales tell that once, the Kharadrons lived much as any duardin do - mining the wealth of the Realms' mountainous regions and worshiping their ancestors.
When the Age of Chaos came, they fought as all did, but the battle could not be won, and they turned their greatest minds to devising an escape, though most thought the task was hopeless.
That all changed when the Kharadrons harnessed the power of aether-gold. This deadly, but fantastical gaseous substance is the secret to their technology, the reason for their isolation, the basis of their culture, and their means to escape the dominion of Chaos.
Let's wait for the release and more info - now it looks really intriguing.
