I have recently bought the new Dwarf miniatures and wandered whether to assemble my shooters as Quarellers or Thunderers.
I know that they are both better in different situations, but I expect to be playing a lot of High Elves.
Thanks for any advice.
Sorry I posted this twice, my computer crashed.
Im like missile troops with great weapons, do I would have to say quarellers.
Great range, cheaper at base cost.
thunderers will hit more often, but that is the only advantage they have.
personally i belive that your missile units should never be put into combat situations. they tend to get too costly and often will get their arses kicked.
so im with thunderers +1 to hit is a big advantage and they -2 to save rather than -1. :yes:
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! ^_^
As a LOOOOOONG time Dwarf player I would have to say Thunderers. The -2 to armor saves will save you time and time again when you are facing off against Bretonnians or Chosen Knights of Chaos or anything else with a decent armor save, not to mention they will hit more often.
If you want longer ranged support, then get a couple of Bolt Throwers, but equip the standard troops with Thunderers.
Thunderers are altogether probably better, after a look at the book. Dwarfs do not have the strongest ballistic skill so you need the +1 modifier I think!
I have now built my set into Thunderers.
good choice thunderers very rarely let you down. with +1 to hit they are as accurate as elves at short range and so much more powerful. the armour piercing really does make a difference
i didnt do it it was him 'onest boss
The new handguns have +1 to hit anyway, short range or not, so they are as accurate as Elves or Ungols anyway.
Use Light, Beasts, Metal instead of Heavens
NecroLords: Use at least one Death Mage
Brets: Use Peasants&Damsels
Skaven: Don't use Skryre SAD
I have just strated dwarfs and bought the army deal,so I have one box of shooty dwarfs.actually I found it an dilemma wich one to pick but after a while I chose the thunderers because they probably make more kills then the quarrelers(+1 to hit,st4,-2as).also a little question:may quarrelers move and fire :unsure: are not.
Quarrellers have crossbows, so no they may not move and fire. And neither may Thunderers now. All stationary.
