Ok I have been playing 40k for quite some time and I want to start in Fantasy. I have decided to play either Dwarfs or Dark elfs but I am torn between the two and dont know which one to do. So I am asking you all to tell some pros and cons of the two armies. Thanks.
pros to dwarfs:
very good inf (possibly best point for point)
great fire power (good choice of warmachines etc)
great anti magic (base of 4 etc)
high toughness and LD and there for hard as nails
wonderful charicter fluff wise and you can blame all your mistakes on elves
slow (trust me when i say slow i mean moving is not a good option alot of the time)
no main stream magic (not as big a downer as some think but still)
low "I" (not so much a down side when useing great weapons but again still)
i dont play DE so i cant give much for them but look around the two forums for more info.
spambot kill tally: 79
[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! ^_^
And Dark Elves are pretty much the opposite of everything Nautilus said.
-Fast, very fast with dark riders
-can go magic heavy, and are pretty good at magic (not as good as high elves, but still)
-Repeater bolt throwers are amazing
-High leadership, almost as good as the Dwarfs
-low toughness, on everybody
-fairly expensive troops
I'm sure I'm forgetting some of them, but there's a start.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
Add the paper thin armour to the dark elfs, and are not as caracterful as the dwarfs IMO.
thanks guys that really helped!!!
i see that u play guard, so i don't know if u wanna play dwarfs, seeing as they are a largly defensive army like guard, but i hope u do
Mr. Burns: Why is everyone being so insolent today?
Smithers: Well sir, it is christmas...
Mr. Burns: I'll decide when its christmas!
My guard deepstrike and have some deamonhunter allies, I made a point not to use tanks but I do use sentinels, but back to the topic.
