Is it just me or do dwarfs only get 2 results in a game, draw or win. I have yet to lose a game with my dwarfs, and my friends are complaining they're unfair. Does anyone else find this?
i have lost as and have massacured dwarf. it all depends on the player, the setup, the list. and the oponent. my 1k list once i learnt how it worked i ONLY drew. never won, never lost only got draws. my 2k list i have won once with but i'm still learning it's quirks.
Painting: 20 quarrelers
While i mostly win with my 2k army (after 6 years of playing the same list, i know how it works!) and get the occasional draw, when i lose its generally by massacre, and usually against either a magic heavy or skirmish heavy army. That or murphys law.
Dwarves are an easy race to play, sort of like space marines in 40k, but they take some good tactical knowledge to win with as their horrible movement is their bane
Oi! Get off me beard!
Dwarfs are far from unfair (look at the new Deamons...).
Would you describe your opponent as tactically inept? Or is your list very shooting orientated and your opponent's very slow-move-infantry orientated?
Certain armies and certain lists just match up better compared to certain other armies.
Your success is probably a combination of:
1. They have a poor selection when considering their opponent.
2. They might just not have as tactically-oriented a mindset.
Dwarfs are hardly the be-all-to-end-all of lists. They generally don't do too well in tournaments.
WHFB: Dwarfs || WH40k: Imperial Fists, Necrons || WM/H: Trollbloods || BFG: Necrons
dwarves are an army which is easy to play, but difficult to master.
as you play and progress (especially in the higher points levels) you'll find that M3 becomes a vicious handycap and you'll have to fight harder and harder to pull through. i have myself been on a bit of a loosing streak as of late so i'm trying out new tactics and ideas. (my latest list being a shooting heavy defence list with 3 large melee units to form the battle line one of which being slayers (for a change).
in all honesty i feel dirty for making such an army >_<

[16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.
[00:01] <+zubus> i love you, ya skirt wearin nothern monkey! ^_^
Seems that arklite and i are switching roles then. Im generally the balanced/slighty shooty army with 3 infantry units, but now im finally going to try a strollaz list to see how it goes. Unfortunately i only have 4 combat units as im trying thorek out to make them move faster. I predict that a few massacred result await me in the near future. Should be a nice change. Oh, and the new deamons suck, i had a hard fought draw against them. Slaaneshi deamons are nasty, my own general failed a leadership test and almost killed himself with his runic axe.....doh!
Oi! Get off me beard!
I have gotten some pretty bad beat-downs (mostly to ogres). Ive played games where I fail all my leaderships and are completely routed by turn 4, or in a 2 v 2 and my partner dies and I get over run. Ive also played games where I dont loose a single dwarf and just shoot them to pieces. then again im using a more friendly list then a compedative one.
We will remain, until the battle is won: BROTHERS OF METAL!!!!
i saw this one game were high elves massacered this dwarf army. They only had 4 dispell dice so he magiced the cr*p out of them then when the dwarves advanced (cover was stopping most of the range shots) the elves wiped out all of the siege equipment, (run throughs) then time went out (elves won lost alittle to siege stuff but not much)
It was a bad day to play dwarves
When playing my WEs against Dwarfs, I usually win. I get lots of time to shoot those little buggers down and clean up the mess with my combat units.
When I play my Dwarfs, I win, sometimes. Well, not that often, because I'm not nearly as good with them.
