    Herman slouched on his throne. Dejected, apathaetic, demoralized. Due to the countless Ork and dark elf raids the population of his clan had dropped by almost 20%. Trade was almost impossible with the raiding bands of beastmen and now his son, Sherman, gives his news of a recent defeat at the hands of a marauding ogre troop.

    What had happened? What had knocked one of the most lucrative and strongest clans in Dwarven history? Herman heard worrying explosion down the hall, followed by the boom of what once was a flame cannon slamming into the ceiling and a series of muttered curses: his engineering son, Berman, must be experimenting .....

    That was it.

    The use of blackpowder and strange magic was to blame. Befriending the feeble elves and forces of Hashut were to blame. Herman was inspired. He immediately called his war council and laid plans for an immediate counter attack, taking back all the lands confiscated and sending out daring expeditions to retrieve some of the clans lost treasure. No more black powder, only the tools his great grandfather, Kerman, had used to forge his once grand empire.


    Theme: Horde, defensive, expendble unit, hideous amounts of bolts.

    Concepts: Old fashioned, flank attacks, crouching ranger/hidden miner.

    Possible ideas: A unit of longbeards, adding a thane w/ ABSB & MRSRB.

    i think this army is a very good all rounder BUT (there is always a but )
    i personally think that your army lakes a battle hardend unit like ironbreakers.

    maybe adding some will help but it is completly up to you.

    ive never heard of the weapon your lord has

    [/QUOTE]

    i cant seen to find it in the army book!!!

    apart from that it is very good.

    Ungrim the weapon was won as an extra item during the Albion Campaign, if you go to the GW site and under the HE section look for "The treasures of the old ones" and this takes you to where the weapon is.

    My revised army list:

    Theme: Horde, defensive, expendable unit, hideous amounts of bolts.

    Concepts: Old fashioned, flank attacks, crouching ranger/hidden miner.

    Possible ideas: A unit of longbeards, adding a thane w/ ABSB & MRSRB.
