The Lord of Change cometh with new Aether War release

2019 was a big year for Warhammer with a wealth of armies getting updates. Well, this trend is continuing into 2020 as the Kharadron Overlords and Disciples of Tzeentch are next on the list.

Aether War is a brand new battle box, giving 2 very different armies a bit of an update as the Kharadron Overlords and Disciples of Tzeentch battle it out for profit, plunder and arcane secrets.

Similar to other battle boxes, such as Tempest of Souls and Feast of Bones, the box is packed with miniatures, including two brand-new heroes. Via Warhammer Community

This set contains a vast array of Kharadron Overlords and Disciples of Tzeentch models, including two new champions available for the first time in this set! The Endrinmaster with Dirigible Suit is ideal for accompanying your Endrinriggers into battle and keeping pace with the ships he’s assigned to repair, while the Magister on Disc of Tzeentch allows you to flit around the battlefield zapping enemies into Chaos Spawn. Aether War is brilliant for starting or expanding a Tzeentch or Kharadron Overlords army – just in time for…

One distinct feature of Aether War is that both armies do in fact fly – that’s right – fly. So whether it’s the steampunk dwarves or bird-like Disciples of Tzeentch that tickle your fancy, both make use of the updated airborne battle system rules, which can be found in this box.

Both armies are receiving two new Battletomes that update the Kharadron Overlords and the Disciples of Tzeentch with new rules, terrain and for fans of the Lord of Change, some rather nice new Endless Spells as well.

And if that wasn’t enough for you Tzeentch fanatics out there (like myself), there’s even a new set of dice coming in three very distinct yet familiar colours….pink, blue and yellow…the colours of your favourite horrors.


All of these goodies will be available to pre-order from Saturday 4 January 2019. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled on the Warhammer Community website as they will be previewing the armies and their Battletomes ahead of their release.

So which army are you looking forward to playing? Are you starting afresh or will you be using Aether War to bolster an already existing army? Let us know by tweeting @brumpolarbears.
