Hi all, now i realize that alot of people collect and play warhammer with absolutely no interest in history or background, but fluff is what this thread is all about.Do you have some story as to how your army came to be? what they are trying to achieve? where they originated from?If so, then let us know.
My army is a bunch of leftovers from the Shadows Over Albion campaign. They're basically trying to establish a hold in the center mountains and fighting lizardmen.
Your post inspires others, lets all work for a fluffier future!

My dwarf army is a splinter from Karak - Izor, which is the name of my local Dwarf general uses for his army (he has 6000+ dwarfs in his arsenal).
I decided that Karak-Izor got crowded and a new hold should be formed by the settlers from Karak-Izor, so they are still marching to find a suitable place. They are Karak-Izor settlers.
If i can complete the army as i like, i will do a small campaign, and settle them to nice new/old dwarf hold and rename them.
We meet in a game with him, in a small tournament. We joked that, i stole his hold's anvil (i was using his model) and his hold's lord was chasing my army to get it back. He got himself a righteous minor win.
Mine is going to be an expeditionary force to try (again!) to reclaim Karak Eight Peaks. The army is based on fairly heavy tunnel fighting ideals. Shield equipped close combat units (even Hammerers!) as great weapons or 2h weapons are hard to use in confined spaces, small missile units, and very few (only 2) black powder war machines. Bolt Throwers feature because I reckon they'd be lethal in the long straight halls of the dwarfs. Imagine one of them sitting at the end of a corridor? I also have a Dragonslayer cause well, I'm working my way through Gotrek and Felix's travels... my god, I love Gotrek. <3
=] (Spam posting with beer late at night on the forums... maybe not such a good plan).
My Army is actually fluff related a small hold in the northern part of the Grey Mountains that mined out or lost access to all the natural mineral resources in the area and thus started selling their military services to the surrounding area, mostly Marienburg, though they do a lot of work with Bretonians during summer season to protect against sea born raiders.
May the Emperor forgive you, for his servants cannot.
- In the 1032 Imperial Year Skalf Dragonslayer become a King of Karak Azgal and establish a town in a valley below the old entrance.

- Aftre 183 years of fighting he felt slay by Skaven Assasin.
- In 1814 Imperial Year I Skalf Daledson become a King of Karak Azgal.
- We were fighting for many year against Skavens,Goblins and other monsters.
- In 2522 Imperial year we killed last on evil creature in Karak Azgal.
After 2991 years Karak Azgal become a Dwarf Stronhold again. We had only one year of peace. Storm of Chaos begun and we had to pick up our weapons again.
I have 10000+ dwarfs fighting against any enemy forces trying to invade our land. We will defend it or we will fall.
