    Quote from arwaker: “Well, if you'd really be so keen on fast movement and casting powerful spells, you wouldn't have decided for DH in the first place? ” No this is insulting. Most people play DH because they feel... Dwarfy.

    I will change a little tone. I love some of the changes! 1. Weapon team as War Platform. I definitely must deploy my DH as ID to test it. My Flame Cannons are screaming: test me! 2. R5 Little Taurukh. awesome! 3. FIER GW equipped dwarves 4. New Lugars! For me they are what Seekers should be...

  • Regarding Scout/Ambush the problem is that we can deploy only 2 units. 2x20 Miners are huge force that everyone have to respect. Problem is that it has exactly same weakness as any other DH unit of 20 models. Same applies to 20 models big Rangers. They can be gang-banged from all directions by units with long-charge range. Simple fix would be to change limits to 0-3 (or even more aggressive 0-4). 4 units of 10 Miners is much bigger headache for opponent then 2x20 (hello MSU Omar-style!). Unfortu…

  • Quote from arwaker: “Warplatform artillery for DH? Do you really want to rebase your stuff? ” Just make it 60x60 and use round-to-square adapter Also some people (like me) have not attached artillery to bases (just in case ;).

  • Quote from Eisenheinrich: “Quote from WarX: “Same applies to eg. Catapult. You roll big hit, small hit, then big hit, small hit. ” Actually, it'sbig hit, if failed -> reroll big hit, if failed -> small hit, if failed -> reroll small hit ” Also misfire cannot be rerolled :p

  • Quote from Aenarion43: “A unit on 7's to hit at range gets Stars Align, where does the re-roll go into effect? ” On both rolls 6+ and then 4+. This is because those are 2 independent rolls. Same applies to eg. Catapult. You roll big hit, small hit, then big hit, small hit.

  • Quote from Ilderoth: “I have another question. Below you see four units (A, B, C, D). A (VS infantry unit, 5 wide, 4 deep), B (VS weapon team) and C (VS weapon team) are on the exact same line and there is one inch between them. D (DE shadow riders) wants to charge B but cannot do so without getting in btb with A or C. Does that mean it cannot legally charge B but instead only A or C? A xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx B C xxxxx x x xxxxx D ” Nothing prevents unit D from charging. You touch corner-to-corner at…

    Quote from Ilderoth: “If the mist leviathan charges, does it then also get the +2 combat res bonus itself? I thought so because it is within range of itself. Just checking. ” Yes. All units are friendly units in range of themselves

  • Quote from Ironclad: “Give Cannon volley mode accurate so you can actually use it if something is within 12” ” Keep in mind this 12" is very restricting on it's own - most things that hunt War Machines can park behind 12" and still charge comfortable. For me this 12" is distance I can use to trick opponent, but nothing more (eg. in my last game I outplayed my friend and he had to park his Blood Knights 11" from Flame Cannon - unfortunately his killer Vampire passed Aegis after FC removed 3 Knigh…

  • Quote from Cam: “Quote from Peacemaker: “I think it's all great. All the kinks got worked on with ID which means it should be smooth sailing for DH. Notice how ID have a sevre lack of special deployment? Even the 1 vanguard unit is reduced to 6" rather than the BRB 12. ...guess what this means for DH? (of course we kind already knew that). Notice the lack of mix and match ammunition on the Artillery now? ...guess this might mean more rune variety for DH artillery. Notice how the Tauruk Enforcers…

    Quote from Omarcomin: “I think DH infantry need to lean into the gimli quote about being dangerous over short distances... we somehow need to charge more reliably over the limited charge range that we have. Sitting 13,14,or 15” away should not be as comfortable as it is for opponents. We will never throw a 17” charge but if you’re in range you’re in danger... This is the way. I think ID created the blueprint with vassals. If fear is a motivator for rerolling charges, surely dwarven stubborness i…

  • Quote from Slayer Zabojcow: “Quote from youngseward: “A DH player marks a unit of centaurs for a grudge which at the time they were marked included a centaur chief. If the centaur chief then leaves the unit, he is no longer subject to hatred right? Because the marked unit is the centaurs not the chief? ” That's how it works, but remember that DH player can mark characters even if they are inside the unit. ” They rule is that you mark unit from army list, not unit you see on battlefield

    @Slayer Zabojcow @xaby86 spot the difference between passive March and Shoot in ID which you can't stop in any way and spell that gives ability to shoot after March. First you need to risk and March, loose possibility of shooting, then try to cast spell to push the unit further and shoot. For me this is nicely balanced.

    @wombat Let's put aside fact that this is not this thread Better Marksmen do not solve any problem. Opponent can still make charges from safe distance, well placed Marksmen are still too far to grab the objective. I think that proper direction would make dwarven shooting short ranged, but more deadly. Then those Marksmen can do something other than standing still. Of course shorter range means no freaking Unwieldy! Also shorter range could be boosted by Rune of Resolve giving something like Marc…

    Quote from Keula: “Quote from Cam: “Ok, he might not be in a unit. Might be on his own on a mount. Hence bearer. ” Even if they are alone(with or without a mount) they are still a friendly unit within range, like you said earlier, in the same post.Quote from Cam: “"HeYes, an unit is always at range of itself" ” So the fact that it affects the bearer and friendly units is redundant and should just say it affects friendly units, like Will of the Senate for example. In the end It's just a VERY mino…

    Quote from Giladis: “What about Thaumaturgy or Alchemy? One forces the opponent to come to you, the other allows you to magic the armoured stuff, warmachine the monsters and then grind down the unarmoured stuff with units. Or Witchcraft or Cosmology... ” Block of 25 LD10 Vanguarding Seekers buffed by Druidism. Unbreakable unit that can be R6/R7 or with Fortitude 5+/4+ or worst case raised by 4/6 models This completely mitigates only weakness of Seekers...

    Quote from Giladis: “Quote from Fnarrr: “I'm hoping to run a (Universal Battle) event later this year with a "Wandering Wizards" comp - every army has access to a pleb that can take any lore. I'm curious what happens to DH in that environment, since by far the biggest direct power gap is the lack of magic - everything else is just that gap not being compensated for adequately. ” I will watch that event with great interest as it could show us valuable data concerning how to handle Battle Runes in…
