A Rig Charging Station.

Aethercraft, the technology of the Kharadron Overlords, take its name from its common reliance on aether-gold and is pioneered by members of the Endrineers Guilds and Aether-Khemists Guilds.[2a]


Aether-rigs are flight suits that operate as mobile power sources, allowing other the aethermatically powered kharadron devices to be used in the field. The aether-rigs consist of layers of padding for comfort and protection, and are equipped with harnesses, clips, cables, and sockets that can be modified to work with any aetheric device.[1a]

Aether-rigs have a number of Aether-gold Ingots which serve as the power source of kharadron equipment. The rig and ingots are able to conserve energy when it is not required and even harvest microscopic amounts of aether-gold from the air if present.[1a]

List of Aether-Rigs

  • Aether-regulated Keg.[5a]
  • Aethermatic Saw.[1a]
  • Aethermatic Volley Gun.[1a]
  • Aethermight Hammer: So powerful a rig is needed to operate and control them.[1a]
  • Aetherometer.[6b]
  • Arkanaut Armour: Aether-gold enhanced and energised metal plates.[1a]
  • Atmospheric Anatomiser: Portable science lab able to draw in and sample gas from the air, it can also project it in several forms.[1a]
  • Drill Launcher: handheld version of the drill cannons found aboard Kharadron ships.[1a]
  • Endrinharness: Enhances the wearer's strength - it was first developed to allow the use of the Aethermight Hammer.[1a]

  • Grapnel Launcher.[1a]
  • Heavy Instruments: Handheld devices to monitor the local atmosphere.[1a]
  • Net Launchers.[4b]
  • Quadbreather: It also filters out any toxins in the air and also allows the wearer to smell Aether-gold at a considerable distance.[1a]
  • Rapid-fire Rivet Gun: For making repairs and combat.[1a]
  • Skyburst mortars.[6a]
  • Skyhook: A ether-powered harpoon, its solid steel tip connected to a strong, flexible metal cable which the wielder can then flick a switch to make the tip and cable viciously recoil.[1a]
  • Skymine: The mines can be released to float in the air, exploding in a devastating aetheric blast.[1a]
  • Vulcaniser Pistol: Short ranged sidearm.[1a]

List of Aetheric Artefacts

List of Aethermatic constructs

  • Cogmonculus: This small cogwork automaton is capable to maintain and repair kharadron equipment.[2b]
  • Drillbill: Those glimmering-eyed birds are the Kharadron Overlords’ traditional personal companions. Constructed with loving degrees of artifice to such an extent that some consider them decorative or ceremonial in nature, they are nonetheless deadly creatures capable of protecting their creators. Indeed, their saucer-like glowing eyes allows a Drillbil to detect weak points, while their precision-engineered piercing bills are perfect for exploiting them.[1b]
