it seems like there is always issues with the dwarfs being at a huge disadvatage because they are so out of date and cant contend with the new riggyness of the updated armys. Does games workshop not realize this? will they ever update the dwarfs?
We will remain, until the battle is won: BROTHERS OF METAL!!!!
There are many armies that are alot older than dwarves when it comes to being outdated. They don't want to release more than 1 army per quarter, to maximise profits made off them. Beastmen, tomb kings and lizardmen are in a far worse shape than we are, and bretonnians and skaven are getting old.
all in due time beardling, All in due time.
I don't believe that we are outdated. We are the most flexible army. Maybe we believe we lack because the mainstream tactics we used to use for years don't work any more, but we adaptation and new ideas we are a very solid army. Also our book came out just before the 7th edition.
Yes we may need some issues sorting, but nothing major, and a proper Errata from GW will sort the issues out.
There are armies out there well outdated like TK (book 2002, models from the 90's!!), Skaven, Bretonnia. Also Beasts of Chaos have being nearly absolete since last summer. Don't forget also the Chaos Dwarves who missed the last few editions completely.
And if we add into the schedule the 40K, it will take few years for GW to clear up IG, WH, Deamonhunters, Dark Eldar, Tyranids and Necrons.
Those are 9 to 10 armies to be updated from Q2 2009 onwards, on a very unstable global economic environment. (we have to take in mind the financial aspect too).
Dwarfs were the last army updated for 6th edition, so they shall be one of the last to be updated. As pointed out, many armies are more worthy of an update compared to the dwarfs. Dwarfs are a good army, that play like their fluff suggests. I love the dwarf army, and eagerly await the next update for them in some years time.
I know this sounds like a contradiction to one of my threads, but that was more of a musing.
Well rumour has it, the dwarfs are to get a new polish around 2010. All hear say but it's there.. Anyways, you could always begin another army while you wait... If not just find the nearest tavern, grab a pint, sing some songs, fight a lil bit and w\watch your beard grow. At any rate, cheers mate.

i highly doubt 2010, we still have TK, Skaven, Bretonian, Beast to go that will take us well into 2010. personaly i don't think dwarfs are that bad off an army that is less viable (GT wise) then we are are O&G. i doubt we'll see a dwarf update till 2011

O&G are just crazy :p
In a good way ;- )
They've got a lot of diversity. Strong units and cheap weak units. And fanatics just kick ass xD
I think 2010 isn't that unrealistic. How many armies have been updated the past year? My memory isn't great, was HE this year? DOC? VC? WOC, DE, ( soon LM ) .
ugg your right man my timing is way off i was thinking it was 2010 next year not the year after.
but any ways
HE were 2007. in 2008 we had DoC, VC, WoC, DE
in 2009 were should have LM(confirmed) Skaven(rumored next) Beastmen (rumored after Skaven) Tomb kings (rumored 4th quarter)
in 2010 we should see Ogres, Dwarfs, and anyone else...
