AoS 2 - Dispossessed Discussion

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, new here! I slooooooooowly building a Dispossessed army...for now I only have a Warden King, 2x Runelords and 40 Hammerers (from the Avatars of War range).

Is it viable to only field armored dwarves and leave behind the Warriors, Quarrelers, Thunderers? I don't like those models, at all, and wouldn't want to be forced into getting lots of them just to get a few wins.

40 Hammerers

Looks like you have all you need ūüėé

Warden king and 2 runelords are your standard command squad, you have that covered. I like to run 30 hammerers as a big block, you can field two 20 man units but they tend to drop numbers pretty quickly.

You can easily field a very Elite army, avoiding the older kits (warriors are very good, tho). You need around 20 Irondrakes to make good use of theyr commander attack (and their base stats are very strong), 10 longbeards to buff near units. That's your core Elite army.

From there you can pick what you love, Ironbreakers are very strong, Longbeards too. Chose allies to cover your weakness (mobility, mortal wounds, long range) and surprise your opponent with insane damages ;)

It is possible if you take ironbreakers as Battleline with irondrake, hammered and longboards support

Thanks! I forgot to mention that I also have: Knight-Incantor, 1 gyro NIB, Helblaster Vollet Gun, Helstorm Rocket Battery, Cannon, Organ Gun, Cogsmith, Unforged.

One of my FLGS have 2 Ironbreaker boxes that I will grab to build the 20 Irondrakes.  Will only need 10 Longbeards and a ton of Ironbreakers!

Remember that Hammerers are also Battleline with the Dispossessed allegiance.

Quick question, I'm just looking to convert my old Dwarfs for AoS but I can't find a points cost for Slayers in the General's Handbook. Have they effectively been written out or am I missing somewhere that the points are listed?

Yap, the whole "slayer" block has become the Fyreslayers faction. You can ally them to Dispossessed and use the old models as Vulkite Berzerkers, i guess ;)

Also, how do you work out the units attacks? Do they get 4 attacks each (2 for Handaxes, 2 for War picks) unless they have Slingshields?

Missed important info out.

You get exactly the amount of attacks stated on the top of the warscroll. In the short text at the beginning it states your equipment options. You get extra rules for two axes instead of Axe and shield. I think vulkite can reroll 1s to hit with two weapons.ūüėĀ I hope that helped you

The old slayers do have warscroll in age of sigmar and pitched battle point cost for matched play, so you can run them as they are. The downside is you can only run them in order allegiance in matched play. 

But if you play casually with friends and they are reasonable people you can ask to take them as allies in a dispossessed force :)

Ain't "armored dwarves" a pleonasm? :)

Joke aside, I'm looking at Hammerers' profile, and I wonder what is best for defense between their 4+ save and warriors' 5+ with re-roll (putting aside that warriors have more wounds for same amount of points spent)?

Also, with Longbeards, ain't that 4+ save worth the 20 points increase from warriors when tanking matters? Or did they really shine only for their buffs?

What allies do you use mostly to cover these? Cogs can give us problems with the runic icons. Whats a tournament/all comers list look like for you?

That, to me, is a tournament list. But every Dispossessed player tend to have his personal idea about that and a lot revolve around the player playstyle.
First of all you need to play the objective game, few things in this game are going to remove in one turn 20 brakers+ Cannon from your objective. The cannon can help contest a middle of far objective and it force the opponent to move toward us.
The warden king command ability is beautifull to clear units. Runelord I think all of us know.
 
30 Hammerers, 30 Warriors and 20 Irondrakes are my pickaxe target for 3 reasons:
1- I need to contest objective and be present and resilent about it (Hammerers)
2- I need to snipe Heroes, a big monster, Nagash, LoN general etc (Irondrakes)
3- I need to put a brick of stone on an objective and hold it for 3 turn (Warriors)
 
That said we autolose a lot of battleplans (3 place of arcane power, the moving objective one is hard and the list goes on and on) but very few things we can do about it.

Fun fact, I just finished my 2k list for assembly and this is the EXACT list I'll be running. I was thinking, as an option, of swapping one Runelord with a Cogsmith for the cannon. Thoughts?

The cannon can really become a sty with an engineer nearby. Try it out.

I would the third runelord might be a bit much? Or drop the cannon but then you have no long range treat to get your opponent to come to you. It's a toughie. 

I know it's horrible, but to be sure you should play a lot of test games (and report back here ;) )

Our little circle of 5 players are starting to build our first forces now. I've got a big duardin army that I've rebased for AoS and starting out with this as my first 500pts. My friends are playing Deathrattle (death), Ironjaws (destruction), Slaanesh (Chaos) and Skaven (Chaos). So one of each Grand Alliance with me being the Order player!

I've painted up 10 warriors and a Runelord so far, working on the Thunderers then some Longbeards and more Warriors to follow. One thing I'm not sure about is whether to go Runelord or Warden King in 500pts? Both seem quite powerful and bring different things, I feel like giving thunderers rend in low points games could be particularly nasty, but the having the oathstone and the Warden King giving out +1 to wound against a unit also seems equally nasty. Making a Warden King a combat beast with the Chamon Rune blade and legendary fighter trait looks fun too.

I'm also trying to keep it thematic and use Chamon artefacts and traits as my Duardin clan hail from Chamon known as the Ice Wardens. They are a unique type of Duardin called Ice Duardin who live in some of the coldest mountains between the free cities in Chamon. Their trade and craft is to mine the coldest metal possible from the deep icy metallic mineries in the mountains of Chamon, then craft weapons and armour as hard as the mountains themselves through an mystical process called Frostforging. Therimm Coldsteel the Ancient is the clan's oldest and most knowledgeable Runelord and guards the clan's sacred rituals in Runesmithing and Frostforging. It is said that during the Frostforging process Therimm deals with temperatures so cold that it would be fatal even for Ice Duardin.

Allegiance: Dispossessed
- Grudge: Cowardly Hordes
Mortal Realm: Chamon

Those look awesome. Reminds me of the Skaal village from Skyrim for some reason, cool stuff. As for the Runelord vs Warden King debate, I would vote for the runelord. I feel he adds more at such a low point cost game. Dealing with -2 rend from thunderers at 500 points is nasty, or dealing with a block of warriors with a 5+ 5+ and 6+ FnP is also quite difficult. I think buffing troops is more important at this level then having a murder hero.

Well, I managed to beat the new Skaven book with Dispossessed first try. It was a hard battle with many rage inducing moments, but I managed to pull through. The new rules for Warpfire Throwers are brutal. We were playing Total Commitment so the deployment zones were closer and he got a blaze off on my Warriors. Managed to kill the entire 20 duardin squad in one blast turn one. To add further insult, he targeted my Warden King and killed him turn 1 with a Warplightning cannon. I was basically nearly crippled as it was a 1000 point game and I nearly conceded right there.  Took some deep breaths, focused entirely on maximizing objective holding, and held out with pure Dispossessed determination and grit. Managed to salvage a victory much to my surprise.

So you played your turn1 with 300 less point and how in Karak Eight Peaks did you survived the 2# shooting round? Can we know your list? I imagine 40 irondrakes and 1 runelord with pickaxe¬†ūüėā

The image is of how the game roughly began. We played the Total Commitment battleplan.

So first round started with me actually having the first turn. I really wanted to get my Warriors and Warden King on that objective with the clan rats. My problem was the flamethrower in between. I devised a strategy with two fail safes. Plan A was to run the Warden King as close as I could to the flame thrower and throw the teardrop at it and hope to kill it. I tried that and never got into range. Plan B kicked in. Charge the Warriors into the Flamethrower to kill it and to get extra distance. I rolled the charge and needed to get an 8. I rolled a 7. Used a command ability to re-roll the charge and got 7 again. Warriors stayed put and I awaited the inevitable. I forgot to mention that on the other side of the board, Irondrakes lowered his Verminlord to 4 wounds. and his clanrats away from the objective started to flank the Ironbreakers and Drakes. Organ Gun failed to fire. In his turn, he used the flamethrower to kill the entire unit of warriors and then the lightning cannon blasted my general for 6 mortal wounds. This was when I really wanted to just quit because I saw no more hope. Still in a bit of shock and frustration, I watched as his Verminlord used his orb to kill 6 Irondrakes instantly crippling them and removing the double tap. The score was 2-2.

My head started to get a little dizzy from the emotions I was feeling at the time. I know it's just a game, but to see devastation turn 1 sent my head spinning. I abandoned reason for a bit and went full assault Ironbreakers and charged his Verminlord the next turn while the 4 Irondrakes and Runelord stayed at the objective.  They attacked and killed his General as revenge for their king. The Organ gun failed to fire again and the Longbeards moved back a bit while still holding the objective to keep out of range of the cannon. In the second Skaven turn, the flanking clan rats began their turn into the location of my objective. There is a wooden plank fence running along the section they are flanking so it slows down and advance they attempt. His war machines moved up but there out of range. The cannon had to move around terrain. The score was 4-4.

Third turn saw me charge the back clan rats with my Ironbreakers in an attempt to claim that objective. They killed all of them and caused the objective to turn in my favor. Irondrakes fired at the flanking rats and killed a few. Organ gun managed to fire and too out a great deal of them. I forgot to mention but Runeelord has been forgefiring Drakes the whole game. Longbeards stepped back a half inch. In the Skaven turn. the side rats continued to flank and charged the Irondrakes and killed all but one. They now contested my original right objective. His warmachines attempted to move up and fire at the longbeards but were still out of range. The score was now 6-10. I was winning.

My turn yet again (Kept winning roll offs) and I kept the Ironbreakers on the enemy objective. Irondrake killed a rat with a punch and was promptly poked to death, Runelord had charged the clan rats. Organ gun moved and was able to just barely hit the clan rats and took out a couple. Longbeards stayed still. Clanrats now contested my objective with the runelord and were safe from the organ gun. His war machines moved up once more to shoot the longbeards and the cannon managed to fire and killed the entire squad. I was now down to a single controlled objective with the Ironbreakers. Skaven attacked the Runelord and did no damage. Runelord hit back and killed a few. Battleshock failed and the skaven all fled. I held the objective once more. The score was 7-14. Seeing as there was no way to win, the Skaven player conceded the game to me and I won. Some of the details of the game maybe wrong as I am typing this from memory. Games like this are lessons in why you should always play the objective. It's still hard to believe I made a comeback after that.

@Ironbreaker nice you have had some LoS blocking terrain (apparently).

Am I right that otherwise Skaven would just easily shoot you out of the table in turn 2-3 ?

@Ironbreaker that's some quality report! :)

How do you value your Organ gun+ gunmaster? I like to bring a Cannon instead (last game in 4 turn the cannon did exactly 24 damage to a 30 man block of Graveguard, got lucky with damage rolls but still the reroll against horde is massive)

Give us your thinking process around the teardrop of grugni pick, please. I'm so used to the pickaxe that I'm kinda blind around other artifacts options!
