  • Quote from Squigkikka: “Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from Squigkikka: “I don't think more special rules and exceptions is the answer ” 9th Age seems to disagree with you.See the latest two new books: DL and ID. PS Did you retire? ” I mean, I can't talk too much, can I? DH book is full of special rules and exceptions and weirdness (imagine trying to understand what a Dragon Seeker does in 10 seconds the first time you read the entry...!). I did retire, yes! I got busy with Uni studies and still a…

    Quote from Fleshbeast: “Quote from youngseward: “Have you given any thought to a doombell? A mate of mine is running one with an army that includes: Chunky block of plague monks 2 x 7 vermin hulks 2 aboms 2 x 6 jezzails Its a pretty close combat focussed list but with enough ranged he doesnt have to go for broke every game. The doombell giving essentially a 36” bubble of +1 to hit for friendlies and -1 to hit for enemies is huge. ” how do you get to 36”? Just clipping units for full effect? ” Ye…

  • Quote from WarX: “Quote from youngseward: “Quote from dan: “Sure, the battery is one area pricing won’t fix - the S is just too high or the shots too numerous. Also I believe it actually has a marginally lower chance of misfiring (~14%) than a regular Cannon (~17%)? ” 4 st 6 shots with d3 wounds is too much? Thats 4 bolt throwers on a more vulnerable chassis (by being 1 rather than 4). It looks worse than a DH Organ Gun, especially with 24” range.What am I missing here? ” Also the fact that 4 Bo…

  • Quote from dan: “Clipped Wings, accurate and an extra 12” range when it’s mounted on artillery, and Kadim Manifestation both ignoring fortitude and giving it easy access to rerolls to wound against priority targets. If you throw an Oil slick at a Dragon 2 rocket batteries will average 9 wounds against it in a single shooting phase. ” Yep that’ll do it

    Have you given any thought to a doombell? A mate of mine is running one with an army that includes: Chunky block of plague monks 2 x 7 vermin hulks 2 aboms 2 x 6 jezzails Its a pretty close combat focussed list but with enough ranged he doesnt have to go for broke every game.

  • I also run 30+ with great weapons, black standard and a character with the pendant. Seems to work pretty well.

  • Quote from Aenarion43: “ Though I was 100% beaten out by "My army is 200 dwarves, a Runesmith, a Thane BSB, and 2x Catapults). That DEFINITELY felt like fighting an army. ” I thought I was the only one playing a dwarf swarm! Currently undefeated with: King on Warthrone w gw, dispel rune, 1 use stubborn rune and +1 armour 5 x 40 Clan Warriors w gw and musician 2 x 20 Miners w gw, throwing weapons and musician

  • @Cam Ive won a 2.0 tournament with DH. And I used Deep Watch to do it.

  • Quote from WhammeWhamme: “On a topic related to the Monsters issue: How do people feel about the new ID trains? They don't pivot freely (only one pivot/wheel when marching). ” I thought it was a very interesting idea that could inform later decisions regarding single models in the base rules. Depending on how it plays out, might be a good way to make them play the R&F game

    Youre also the only user Ive ever seen with no title... just Morrigan with no ‘rank’ to speak of Now I dont wish to sound too harsh, but it seems to me that you may be a witch.

  • Quote from xaby86: “I imagine that Parry in the tank is a kind of metal shield or protection that gives him the part that breaks the stones, so it's hard to hit him, but it feels strange with Df 1, why don't they put Parry only in the front? ” Parry only works in the front facing

  • Quote from WarX: “Quote from youngseward: “If a Giant with the Blessed Maul is not within 6” of another unit, can it still lose flaming attacks? ” It is stated he first looses Flaming Attacks, then you can decide to grant it to nearby unit in 6". So granting is not condition for loosing ” Unless the book has been updated since release (which is not especially unlikely), there is no second “may” to make the granting a choice. “May choose to lose Flaming Attacks and Magical Attacks. If so, choose …

  • If a Giant with the Blessed Maul is not within 6” of another unit, can it still lose flaming attacks?

  • Im not sure who to tag for this.. @Cam maybe? Can we please get Karguth’s links added to the 3d print section of the miniature library for DH? If I hadnt scrolled to here and lucked into that post being so recent I would have thought there was nothing for us.

  • Dwarves have the best possible counter to the Lammasu. You can just Rune of Devouring the first spell that is cast and then you know what its remaining spell is all the time. If you’re that worried, Rune of Denial will also ensure a sneaky unknown spell doesnt go through at a crucial time as you just use it on the first lammasu spell and dice the other.

    I am honestly way keener to see this play and play against it than I was for WDG or DL. It even has me a bit tempted to start an ID army as they are no longer bland (imo of the old book). Its very flavourful.

  • The Taurukh Commissioner’s Eye for an Eye rule might need a clarification similar to BH Fatal Folly regarding gw attacks being made not at agi0. At the moment the unscrupulous among us could argue that because it says “if possible” and great weapon attacks are resolved at agi0, a gw wielding Commissioner cant use this rule against attacks higher than agi0.

  • Quote from tumti_rumti: “Quote from Firthunands91: “Still, is the DH FAQs the place to discuss it? ” I think that dwarfs are allowed to grumble wherever they want on DH section ? ” People who come here to look up answers to their questions shouldn’t have to wade through pages of people acting like total Thorins
