  1. So, what do y'all think of the Warhammer The Old World announcement from a little while back? I know we don't have specifics but it's fun to speculate
  2. Incoming flood of pictures but I bought a lot of old dwarf models, and they just arrived! I actually bought these from a mod on the AoS Discord who was looking to clear away his collection to make room.
  3. I'm thinking Drillmaster is the way to go; focusing on the shooting aspect. That said being able to run and shoot in this army sounds like it has advantages
  4. Going to be in a campaign game with a friend soon. It's an old grudge match of Dwarves vs Skaven, 1k game. He's bringing a swarm of clan rat, along with some Rat Ogres and possibly a Hellpit. Here's the list and ny idea: Greywater Fastness 1 Warden King 1 Runelord 20 Ironbreakers 20 Handgunners (Proxied with Thunderers to keep the army all dwarves) 10 Longbeards 3 Gyrocopters with Steam Guns. My idea is to treat my Gyros like a shooting line and screen them as I advance, and use them to absolutely MELT his Clan Rats horde, and then use the other models as needed, with Handgunners focusing his heroes and monsters

  6. It's on the list lol. That's part of why I want 2 pieces. I may drop the tank and lean into it more. That said I'm considering making the Cogsmith the general so I'm less restricted, though that means losing Hammerers as Battleline
  7. Fair enough! I like the Volleyguns profile for sheer volume, and 27 inches is pretty scary. But I can see the point. Dropping the steam tank does free up points, but what else would I be dropping to make this list work points wise?
  8. Quick list I put together and I want an opinion. Idea is to move 1 Runelord with the staff as a companion to the Steam Tank to buff it and keep it healed as well as on unit on the side. The other side is a steady dwarven advance of artillery with bulk of the army, doing my best to make the artillery the center of my line and shoot the living bejesus out of everything in between Greywater Fastness Realm of Ghyran Batallion: Greywater Artillery Battery 120 Points Heroes General: Warden King with Steam Piston Plate, Drillmaster Trait 110 points Runelord Adjutant with Wand of Restoration 90 Points Runelord 90 Points Lord-Ordinator 140 Cogsmith 60 Battleline Hammerersx20 280 Points Ironbreakersx20 260 Points Irondrakesx20 300 Points LongbeardsGW×10 110 points Artillery Helblaster Volleygun 120 Points Helblaster Volleygun 120 Points Behemoths Steamtank 200

  10. In particular I'm looking for artillery. Organ Guns are something I never got to buy.
  11. I'm seeing a lot of Mathhammer here so I figured I would ask. What do you guys think of the new Dispossessed war scrolls? There are some pros an cons I feel. For example, everyone lost the shield wall that allows rerolls on failed saves, but that means shield units get +1 and we can now run without having to worry that much. Biggest issue for me is Ironbreakers vs Longbeards now. There's nothing on Ironbreakers that really stand out that make me want to run them compared to what Longbeards can do.
  12. After seeing what's in this book so far it relieves me to know that an all dwarf list is still viable, or at least doable. Graywater Fastness looks like it'll be a great fit overall. Now I just hope we see more battalions.
  13. I agree. I get the resentment; I haven't been collecting as long as some of these guys, but I still have 30 Warriors, 20 Thunderers, 30 Quarrelers, 2 Unforged that I have to now proxy as other units. That said, I'm glad we got a book that, according to the faction focus, looks like there's gonna be a TON of variety and overall awesome stuff in it, and it looks like a pure Duardin force is still VERY possible
  14. I think it's best to look at this positively. They could have just released the book and been done with it. Instead we got a box that's a fairly good value overall, and shows the unified dwarven troops of what we do have left. (Though sadly I own a lot of each model already) I think it's time to move forward and start thinking of the future. This is a great value for those on the fence about the faction.
  15. I really wanna know what kind of battalionscwe get, especially if there are any new dwarf centered ones
  16. I would say Dispossessed still have a role in some way, even with the CoS merge. I'm waiting to see what kind of rules we getvif any, or new Batallions to help us out. But yes, they are an expensive faction to play, I can confirm this
  17. I would like to see an all Duardin list is possible. I have plans for mixed but I like my bearded laddies
  18. I've been theory crafting a bit and I came with a bit of what I'd like to call an "Avalanche" build. This is a basic idea for the list. The Allegiance is Dispossessed for now but I made it to kind of prepare what a CoS dwarf list may look like for a 2k game. General Warden King (100) Heroes Runelord (80) (Ancestral Pickaxe) Runelord (80) Runelord (80) Battleline Longbeardsx20 (200) Longbeardsx10 (100) Longbeardsx10 (100) Hammerersx20 (280) Hammerersx20 (280) Ironbreakersx20 (280) Other Irondrakesx20 (360) Total Points: 1940 Goal is super simple. Screen the Hammerers with the Longbeards and come roaring in like a rockslide with thr hammers. The pick axe will teleport the Irondrakes as normal, or occasionally the Ironbreakers to steal an objective and sit on it like an immovable mountain. Main issue is mobility, though this army would be running a fair bit.
  19. They got rid of a lot more then I was expecting. The jerks also doubled the price of a lot of the stuff.
  20. I tried this and their results are quite disappointing drim my personal experience
  21. Yes. I'd really like the ability to take more then 1 item as well. I feel it's mostly outdated stuff. I pray for when we eventually get a Tome that updates us and gives us more balanced and varied options
  22. Screening is super important as you've discovered. I think the main thing is to make use of your musicians early on and don't be afraid to run your army. Also the Ancestral Pickaxe is like, 90 percent mandatory
  23. I'll have to be more careful. Thankfully it lasts until your next movement phase so if you do it, it stays through your opponent's turn
  24. The way I understand it it's always an option since you haven't run or charge yet in that scenario
  25. Tempests Eye is pretty good from what I hear. Sounds like you're building toward an elite list
