The word Skyrigger describes two different troop types equipped withback-mounted aether-endrins that grant the wearer the power of flight. Endrinriggers are members of the Endrineers Guild, and report to a ship’s Captain as well as the fleet’s Endrinmaster. They bear rapid-firerivet guns and aethermatic saws for conducting airborne repairs, flying to wherever they are needed in order to patch up damage to a ship. Inneed, Endrinriggers can put their high-powered tools to deadly use, riddling the foe with red-hot rivets or slicing through armour, flesh and bone with their whirring sawblades.[1a]

Skywardens are elite members of the Arkanaut crews, a form of aerial cavalry that can scramble to aid the fleets. They use potent, heat-generating vulcaniser pistols to fell foes before lowering their skypikes and charging in to finish the moff. Each Skywarden is equipped with skymines for harrying flying foes, and a timed explosive. These charges are the perfect weapon to aid the Skywardens’ hit-and-run attacks, for their delayed detonations cause chaos among the foe, allowing the duardin to jet away in a blast of aether-exhaust.[1a]

In order to conserve fuel, Skyriggers often hook onto Arkanaut Ironclads or Frigates and trail behind the airships, detaching themselves and flying away as targets of opportunity arise.[1a]
