Khador Colossal Warjack

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.

    • Inaccurate - This model suffers -4 to attack rolls with this weapon.

    • Flak Fire - This attack gains an extra die on attack rolls vs models with Flight.

Special Abilities[edit]

  • Colossal - Colossals are giant warjacks, even bigger and stompier. They all share a stack of standard special rules.

  • Pathfinder - This model treats rough terrain as open terrain while advancing. While charging, slam power attacking, or trample power attacking, this model does not stop its movement when it contacts an obstacle.


Thoughts on Victor[edit]

Victor in a nutshell[edit]

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[edit]

  • 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[edit]

  • 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[edit]

  • 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.

Rules Clarifications[edit]

Rules Clarification : Arcing Fire      (Edit)

  • Arcing Fire lets you ignore models but not terrain. You don't ignore clouds, forests or buildings.

Rules Clarification : Attack Type and/or Arcane Savant     (Edit)

  • If you forget to declare your Attack Type before rolling the attack, and you and your opponent can't agree on a fair fix, then the Judge's Policy is that the first listed Attack Type is the one that will be used.

Rules Clarification : Crater - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Flare - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Incendiary      (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Fire      (Edit)

  • Moving into "Shallow water" standard terrain does not cause continuous fire to expire. It's magic fire.
    • You can always use non-standard terrain if you agree with your opponent before the game starts, however.
  • A weapon can inflict continuous fire without itself being a fire damage weapon (for example, the Helio's fists). In this case, the attack can hurt models with Immunity:Fire it just won't apply the continuous effect.

Rules Clarification : Inaccurate - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Minimum Range - None yet. (Edit)
Rules Clarification : Flak Fire - None yet. (Edit)

Rules Clarification : Open Fist (aka, Power Attack Throw)     (Edit)

  • See the Throw article for a recap of the core Throw rules.
  • When you make a Throw Power Attack, no other abilities of the Fist weapon (such as Chain Strike) are applied unless they specifically mention Throws.
  • If you do a Power Attack Throw and you choose to throw the target directly away, no deviation is rolled to determine the final position of the model. (Locked thread)
  • A model that cannot be targeted by melee attacks (such as Una2's feat) cannot have models thrown at them, either. (Infernal Ruling)
  • Unresolved: Since throwing Model [A] at Model [B] involves making a melee attack vs Model [B] which is out of your melee range, it technically breaks a whole bunch of core rules. The Infernals are currently checking it.
