I love the new Dwarf minis but the new gyrocopters look like the biggest piece of dog shit to come out of GW. I'll never bring myself to use them even if their the best unit in the game.

I'm hoping the new Dwarfs resemble Dwarfs. Hard as hell to move in combat, not the speedy gunlines that you always see now.

Uh, they get it all the time, that's why their parry is 5+. Everyone else just gets 5+ on turns they get charged.

I'm thinking my dwarf army will look much like it does now. Long beards, iron breakers and hammerers backed up by some shooting.

Agreed the new Gyro Copter look like ass. Hoping it will be able to be assembled though as the last metal one was a scientific impossibility to assemble out of the box.

The old style plastic kits were way easier. I had mine assembled and painted in the time it took to assemble my metal one. I will likely buy a new model but it will need some heavy modifying to make it look less 40kish

Are you talking plastic gyrocopters? Was there a plastic one before now?

Which is why they do. All. The. Time. The rule is Gromril Shield Wall and it is a permanent +1 to their parry save.

Rune Of Battle: One rune grants +1 Combat res, 2 runes grants +2 combat res, and three runes grants +2 combat res and fights in extra ranks

That seems cool... people are already saying that this would be cool with a oath stone. that means u have no flanks or rears and everything fights 3 ranks deep, and stubborn... mean... just mean

Never mind Andre, I think you're talking about the finecast version. There wasn't a plastic version.

So i got my new dwarf book early today and on first read through am disappointed. There are some clean up items that needed to be addressed but i have found a rather large bit of situational items which are crap. Such as against orcs or a different item only against elves or only against daemons of chaos. Wtf wtf wtf. So when i play a league playoff or tournament will i spend points on stuff that may not get used in a game. The runes are good. Some great stuff was toned down and some good new ones. The only new items are gyrobombers and irondrakes and some new characters otherwise the army units are untouched. Will have to spend more time but right now i am not loving it.

Lack of magic items unique to each book is something that every new hardcover has faced so far. In my experience if you get 2 or 3 GOOD magic items per army book that's about as much as you can ask for.

There are lots in the book that are unique to dwarfs as they deal with magic differently. I also noticed that character points are down but unit points are up.
