Topic of the Week - Death Rocket
This is the start of a new series, that will hopefully bring new ideas and tactics to the forums. Each week, a new topic will be posted up about a different unit in the army book. This gives you your chance to discuss the unit to its fullest. So, please leave your comment!
This week's topic is - Death Rocket
How useful is this machine? Does it compete against other units for the slot? Why take it?
I don't know how much things have changed since 5th edition with the Death Rocket. Back then, the DR was effective, but the EarthShaker was certainly more prominent but expensive as far as points go. Vs the Skaven, the EarthShakers I was more afraid of them
I love Death Rockets!
I started my Chaos Dwarf army after the new Indy Army book came out, so I don't know what they were like in previous editions. But when I read the rules for the DR I just had to have them. I bought three dwarf cannons, just so I could convert them into DRs. Of course this was before I read the new rules for army percentages in 8th ed. Oh well, more Hob-Goblin cannon fodder anyone?
I think we will see more of these now that the new shooting rules allow premeasuring and are much more like 40k i.e. Less scattering
