Why 4? You only need as many units as core choices.if Thunderers are a core unit, you would need 4 individual units of them to make your core requirements. The rest of them are special units and would have to be bigger to compensate for their lack of unit numbers.
I don't have the current edition of Dwarfs and don't want to post without saying what I am knowing. Also, as said, the theme of this army is entirely with guns, which I took as hand guns. And I am assuming this is a 2000 point army which for dwarfs is 4 core units.Why 4? You only need as many units as core choices.
Of course you can do a complete gun army.
Would look like this:
Dward lord with pistol
Master engineer with pistol
Runelord (you need him in Dwarf shooty armies even though he doesn't have a gun!)
2x10 quarrellers (not really guns...)
It sounds like the store (or the players) have simply banned this list from being played since Drawf Gunline is considered cheesy and unfun to play againstSo i was thinking of starting a dwarf army completely made of quarrelers, thunderers, rangers, and cannons, organ guns. Somebody siad in my GW store that you can't do that that. Is he right?
No, it's pretty boring to play with and against and takes away the strategic aspect of the game apart from 'shoot the fast ones'. The game is basically dumbed down to "did I roll well enough?"
That kind of cheesy
Well at least there's some strategy in using Thorek. I wouldn't say he was cheesy either, given the army wide rules of dark elves, vampires, deamons or even skaven. Realistically, Skaven at the moment do everything we do but better in most ways...The cheesy gunnline is the Thorek gunnline. The normal one is called cheesy because you fall alseep of boredom.
Yes I am aware of that definition of a quarrel, but in that context, Quarreler could well have been some sort of new unit of dwarves quarrel in the definition of a a rivalry or grudge which would be a very dwarfish unit so I wanted to hear exactly what it was before I passed judgement on it.Well.. he's wrong
In 2000 pts dwarfs need 3+ core units btw.
Dwarfs have missile units as core so you can obviously make a legal list with them. It depends on your wording in the store. The staff member might have mistaken 'all guns' for an army of nothing but cannons and such.
Quarrelers are dwarfs using crossbows. ( A quarrel is the shape of the arrowpoints, looked it up once ) I don't know if you want them in your army, but if you do they can give you a bit of combat punch when equipped with great weapons.
