can some one tell me why i should run a dawf army?
yes we can.
Any other armies you are playing? Fantasy, 40K?
Dwarf armies consist of the overall highest leadership in the game. Everyone from warmachine crews to the elite tropps has ld 9, with ld 10 for dwarf lords to top it off.
Dwarf armies can bring a staggering array of weapons of destruction to the field. Bolt throwers, cannons and stone throwers are special choices, and a bunch of newfangled warmachines in the rare section. Organ guns ( artillery dice amount of str 5 shots, -3 to armoursaves ) , flame cannons ( shoots a str 5 flame template across the field ) and gyrocopters ( classified as flying monster ) .
Great basic troops. Every dwarf has weaponskill 4 and toughness 4 minimum. Apart from slayers everyone has armour. Thunderers, quarrelers and warmachine crews have light armour, everything else heavy armour or gromril armour ( 4+ save ).
Propably the most customizable characters in the entire game. Dwarfs can build their own magic weapons with a selection of 4 pages of runes. Characters can put maximum 3 runes on their weapons, armour and talismans each ( so 9 runes in total ) , certain banners can get runes, and all special choice warmachines can get runes.
Dwarfs have the lowest movement in the game ( M3 ) but they cannot be march blocked, so they actually always have 6" move.
Good miniatures, full of character. The unbroken shieldwall of several dwarf units is inspiring.
Dwarf core units can stand toe to toe with many enemy elite units and actually win. They are really good at holding out a turn against the thundering charge of knights, and when they've lost their momentum ( lances, hatred ) they'll blow like leaves in the wind. Let alone when the actual dwarf elite units are on the field. And dwarf characters are some of the strongest of them all, able to withstand daemons and chaos lords.
Great sturdy team with awesome shooting and can very well hold there own in close combat. What's not to like
Thats pretty much what bearded one said, there a great army to play with, there background is awsome, and i think there one of the best armies in the game, just cause they can hold against mostly every thing. If u do decide to do a Dwarf its a must that you have at least one Organ Gun, you'll soon find out when you use it the first as i need a few days ago, there just wrong.
Unless of course you missfire and blow it up on the first turn, but that's always a good laugh too.
I've begun collecting dwarves and with 3x SKull pass plus a few extra boxes of reinforcements, I have a pretty decent force. I am really loving the flavour of their background(very Tolkien) and rules. I am looking forward to facing my Orc& Gobbo friend and my High elf friend. I noticed your Str. 7 Bolt thrower the a few days ago and realized how wonderfully it would punch through Orc chariots. Thanks!
Dwarves hold an iconic place in the warhammer world.
