Khadoran colossals are mountains of steel bristling with some of the most powerful weapons ever deployed in the Iron Kingdoms. The deafening roar of the Conquest’s steam-fed engine is punctuated by the percussion of its devastating guns, which unleash a punishing barrage of shells able to reduce warjacks to slag and annihilate entire enemy formations. The Victor’s massive siege mortar and its sophisticated loading system bring unmatched versatility to the battlefield, while its autocannons neutralize airborn threats with pinpoint accuracy.

Thoughts on Victor
Victor in a nutshell
The Victor differentiates itself from the Conquest by having a longer range main gun with three ammo types that cover a wider verity of match-ups. Need to slow a non pathfinder enemy down? You have a 5" AOE for that. Need To get rid of stealth and lower some defense? Need to set the world on fire? Victor can do this for you, but his painfully low RAT (effective RAT 0) makes it so you need to rely on the 5" AOE and good deviation rolls to get your shots with the main gun on target. Victors secondary guns are the polar opposite; RNG 10 is painfully short range but d3 shots in each arc means you have several attempts at hitting, and Flak Fire means you are actually able to hit the high defense that most flying models have if they are in range.
Big and shooty. Take Victor if you want a Colossal for his different ammo types and main gun. Reach for the Conquest if you want Creeping Barrage's POW 10 templates to protect your army and a more accurate gun with crit devastation.
Combos & Synergies
- Winter Guard Artillery Captain: Can make the Victors wildly inaccurate main gun less inaccurate by giving in +2 to hit but more importantly re-rolls on the direction and distance deviated.
- Harkevich: Two siege mortar shots a round with broadside is amusing, and Mobility gives the Victor much needed movement. Sadly keep in mind that Fieldmashal: Reposition does not work on Colossals.
- Strakhov: Sentry gets you a second shot with the siege mortar every round and Victor is a good way to proc Overrun, but he can not make use of it himself. When it comes time to wade into melee Strakhov's Feat and Superiority makes Victor surprisingly fast and fixes MAT 6.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- Like most Colossals the Victor is big and lumbering. People in MK3 are used to heavy armor cracking and will have an idea of how to take down a colossal with their lists.
Tricks & Tips
- Being conservative with Victor and getting another round of shooting before committing him can be a wise choice when your opponent still has the tools to remove him.
