I have a question about the number of warmachines you can take, of the same type. I know Army Builder is not always accurate and the be all end all. But I was building a dwarf list in it, using 7ed rules. I put in one cannon, and then once I added another cannon, before even putting runes on it, it flagged the list saying something about uniqueness of warmachines.
I didn't recall a rule in this edition about not taking more then one of the same warmachine. I glanced through my dwarf book and didn't find anything. I'm not real familiar with 7ed rules yet, but was wondering if someone could confirm for me if that is an issue or not?
Can you take more then one of the same warmachine in an army, or dwarf army?
Aye you can. Otherwise the 2 bolt throwers taking up a single special slot would be a pretty pointless rule:tongue:
Not sure I would consider that and obvious, "yes you can" though. Sure you have two but they are, as you said, together using the same slot.
Does anyone have an difinative yes or no on this?
Yes you can (just seconding it, because you wanted a big approval).
The only thing is that you cannot have 2 identical cannons with the same runes! But you can have 2 cannons both without runes.

Maybe you were getting a flag because of your points value at the time. Since you can only get two rare choices in 2000+ point games, it may have flagged you for having two cannons (which I assume and dearly hope are rare choices.) and had not reached the 2000 pt threshold (or set it to use the 2000 point ruleset.)
Dwarf cannons are specials. You should always trust your army book over army builder due to the amount of errors in the program which cause massive headaches for the best of us

I refuse to use army builder. There always seems to be some sort of thread about problems with it, inconsistencies with the rules and so on. Personally I've knocked up a nice little excel spreadsheet that I use to do my army lists, and suffice to say, it isn't full of bugs like AB. If I'm not at my computer than I jus break out my trusty scentific calculator. It hasn't let me down yet!Nah. Most dwarf settlements have approximately three cannons for every dwarf. They're the only core choice in the army...Originally Posted by MobiusPrime
Okay, i got a bit carried away there...Mouse is right, they're special.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
