An Aether-Khemist is an invaluable addition to an airfleet. The armour of these specialists incorporates an array of high-tech tools, including quadbreather apparatus that allows them to sniff out aether-gold hidden within thick cloud banks. In addition to harvesting and assessing airborne resources, their atmospheric anatomisers can vacuum away a foe’s breathable air or spray a cloud of lethal chemicals. Pressurised gouts of poison gas can be fired forwards in a deafening blast known as the ‘Roar of Grungni’, or a shimmering golden cloud of chemfog can be released with the pull of a lever, a metallic fug that boosts the power of nearby aetheric weapons.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble an Aether-Khemist. He lugs around a number of heavy instruments, useful for both analysing the air around him and bludgeoning anyone who gets in his way, and his atmospheric anatomiser blasts foes with clouds of noxious aether – or steals away the very air around them, suffocating them quickly and painfully. His sealed armour is covered in detail, from the various lenses used to peer at the composition of the elements to the filters in his mask used to ‘taste’ the air around him.
The Aether-Khemist comes as 12 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
