New dwarf rumors. Book next month.

Postby Inquisitor Wall » Tue Jan 07, 2014 5:01 pm

So BoLS has posted up some new info about the upcoming dwarf book.
http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2014/01/wfb-rumors-dwarfs-cometh.html

While I think the dwarf book is still one of the most solid armies in 8th (barring some magic resistance issues) this does seem like some pretty interesting rumors. And if this turns out to be true, it could help enforce the most important Warhammer fantasy rumor of all...Wood Elves in May!

Bwa-ha-ha-ha! Suck it Wood Elves!

I mean, that's good news for my Dwarves.

I've heard rumors of some special slayer unit (brotherhood of grimnir), and the usual stuff in plastic. Plus new artillery, maybe units of Gyrocopters, and bound spells. But reducing our runes, sadly.

I would have made an all Slayer army when I started, had I known it was possible.

I think it is, for the next month. Maybe it will be even better in February.

The old storm of chaos book had an all slayer army that was pretty awesome. I'd love to see it back as a viable option.

I'm new to Warhammer so this may be a stupid question; but how do you get an entire army of Slayers legally? They're a "Special" unit and I thought that meant they could only be a certain percentage of your army.

There was a list in another book that allowed you to take them as Core. It's not longer legal.

It's possible in the new book you could take a special character that would allow you to field them as core, and move the choices around. We'll see in a month or so.

We currently have that. Take a Slayer Lord, and get more Slayer options. Repeat until your army is stuffed full of Slayers.

This was probably the list I was looking at.
