Dwarves ???

Post  Kal on Fri Jan 17, 2014 7:55 pm

Anybody hearing anything else about Dwarves. I will be 100% pre ordering a Dwarf army once they go full plastic. because Dwarves are awesome... and yet surprisingly not MEN! One thing I heard that would be kinda cool, just like murderous prowess they might get a reroll armor saves of 1, due to the extremely high quality armor they wear. that could be really cool but might also be extremely over powered on lords and high AS stuff. also Gyrocopter squads! coolness. Just figured this threat would start eventually and im pretty excited about it so here it is!  Very Happy

I have tried digging for answers but havent had anything concrete. I may have a bunch of extra dwarf models of various troop types i need to offload.(is there ever really a need to play 40 thunderers?)

I've been waiting for the new Dwarf book for awhile now hoping for new plastics. I've wanted to build a dwarf army for quite sometime. I'm not entirely in love with the dwarf army but How could you not want to have an army of Gimli's.

There is a fair bit of chatter on places like Warseer and Faeit about upcoming Dwarfs. Recurring highlights include...
Gyrocopter squadrons
All warmachine going to plastic dual kits (much like Empire volley gun/ rocket battery)
A new war engine tentatively dubbed an Orc Smasher
Slayer plastic kit that can double as a new unit perhaps called the Sons of Grimnir
Ironbreakers and Hammerers going to plastic as well.

Still not enough to make me collect Dwarfs, I don't think. I sure would like to play against them again, though. There haven't been many armies around for a few years.

There are lots of things i would like to see but maybe bc i am hardcore dwarfs. I would like to see more dimension from the army as a whole. I like the idea of gyrocoptor squadrons but i know what they would have to give up to make them unbroken will be dissapointing. I would like to see miners able to tunnel up anywhere. I would love to have a slayer general so i could feasibly make an all slayer army. Also slayer tattoos should confer at least a six up regen or ward. I have played too many games where shooting goes to hell so some sort of magic/runic phase. Something fast moving. Steam powered chariot with beardlings hanging off it.

I totally disagree about slayers! I love the way Warmaster handled it that any live Slayers at the end of the battle counted against you for VP's. Give the enemy a reason to NOT shoot them and let them die in the ultimate dwarven way.

"How to paint the new Longbeards" sounds like confirmation of new dwarfs.

Plus that picture of a new dwarf character on the cover Wink 

I need to hurry up and finish painting my dark elves so I can start buying and painting some new stunties!

Depending on the quality of the new longbeard models and the army composition rules in the new book I may have a whole whack of plastic dwarf warriors to sell. I should have around 50 (I'll have to count) assembled and painted in a basic green and steel color scheme with great weapons in a mixture from the 2 previous multipart plastic sets.

I think they go up a week before the product is available - depending on their stock availability, the Den should have stock before you'd receive it ordering direct from GW (I know they ran out of a bunch of DE stuff though, and it sounds like Dwarfs will be a popular one too).

Aye having no where in MJ to pick em up id rather order then straight from GW then have to deal with hassle.

I agree Nathan, i got too many armies that i haven't even started painting, ive always loved dwarves just haven't wanted to deal with Metal figs.

So this poped into my head last night. how exactly does one do a preorder without knowing what the book will be like so I have no way of knowing what ill need for 2500 pts? just go in and get a wide varaiety with the idea that I will one day use the figs?

Option 1:
Paying attention to the rumors is the only way (not much out there).

But the better option:
Buy the book and a unit or two that you know you want to paint. Once that arrives, you can figure out the overall army. Only having a few models makes it a bit easier to motivate yourself to get it assembled and painted.

Those are wise words Clark, hopefully Don never reads that and continues his impulse buying so we can all benefit from cheap minis 2-3 months down the line!
