  • We all want DH warmachines to be be better but there are a variety of different ways of doing so. More damage output and better survivability are just two. I personally favour the idea of less damage but more reliability. ID dwarfs have already taken a step in that direction with Accurate on its WMs. And they're dwarfs who walked away from the Holds and have experimented with their industry to improve damage. I feel DH need to really lean into the whole Guild Crafted idea and should favour somet…

    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 Omarcomin: “Who decided that those two awful unfun playstyles were how DH should play? ” Quote from Slayer Zabojcow: “DH playstyles should be Mixed Arms, Gunline and Guerilla Warfare Question is how to make DH Mixed Arms MMU/FLU more competitive, how to make Gunline playable, competitive and fun for both DH player and his opponents. Guerilla Warfare is something MSU was trying to simulate, but somehow RT decided DH can't do MSU so... I don't know what we can do about this playstyle. ”…

    Quote from Jomppexx: “Quote from Omarcomin: “Please name the DH playstyle ID cannot do. Matter of fact please name DH playstyles period. ” Special deployment. Majority of DH army can vanguard/ambush/scout if desired, including core units. ” I'm not entirely sure you can describe an army ability as a playstyle @Jomppexx? Just because an army can go full scout ambush vanguard doesn't make it a playstyle. Playstyles are meant to be something that makes an army excel. Not something an army simply ca…

    Returning is a Str as user, AP as user shot. GW doesn't change the base Str/AP of the user. It adds 2+ in combat. So i'd be suprised if it effected Craftsmanship. But I trust @WarX knows his stuff so great!

    I'd rather I didn't have to cover old ground on an all too regular basis. If you make forceful points, don't sulk when those points are responded to directly and then later quoted again when you make the same complaints. Again. It's unbecoming.

    Quote from Omarcomin: “To be fair... that’s BH. Our acs are conspicuously absent from discussions lately. The “buffs” we got in the balance patch were not as celebrated as they hoped I think. ” Please don't mistake silence on certain threads for absence. I'm listening. Also, ever hear the saying no news is good news. DH doesn't start forum threads about how happy they are with life. It's not in the genome. But these discussions have been had before. These themes have been raised before. And I've…

  • Quote from Wesser: “To each his own Personally I’d rather see “Rune-bound Dragon” or “Living Mountain” for DH, because at least its Fantasy. If I say casually “my army was destroyed by enemy machineguns, flamethrowers and lasercannons the other day” was I playing 40K or just facing shooty VS? DH is just slipping down the same path. The 5th edition Gyrocopter was at least adoreably crude and fit in with handguns and crossbows, but then came 8th edition with new total garbage models and rules and …

Rune of Craftsmanship 30 pts0–3 per Army. A weapon engraved with this Rune follows the rulesfor Great Weapons (this does not prevent the weaponfrom being engraved with additional Runes).

That is all ” Because it's a beatiful day :)I wish I wish I wish all the sci-fi (cuz that's what it is, not steampunk) in VS would be blown to Mars and model invalidation be damned.

  • Quote from setrius: “Quote from Kreln: “I'm not sure what the solution is to the DH magic problem. I'm like Berti, I'd prefer no magic but strong anti-magic but I know it won't be... So I would prefer to keep the 'improved' Rune System then a regular magic but We need something like a Attribute/Hereditary Spell. Bonus to the AS or negating opponents AP. Just my 2 cents.. ” I suppose that dwarves players need to choose between play in the same league like others armies or still crying and complai…

    Hi Lads The DE beta phase rumbles on and the LAB team are after our input. In particular they'd like to know our thoughts on Irresistible Will. Please take a second to answer this 1 question poll. forms.gle/vZjTn4RyqoJY9WED8

  • Quote from xaby86: “All of you who are asking for conventional magic are all listed in my book of grievances. Let's just make the battle runes worthwhile. ” This. Quote from Kal: “ha, I'd be onboard for this. Just the no dwarf magic seems a leftover from GW days. and other than "because thats how its always been" there isn't a huge reason not too imo. Tons of cool dwarf wizzy figs out there. Easy to make the case fluff wise. Every single other army has access to real spells and everything else d…

  • @Chronocide you're always coming in with ideas! Not sure what your batting average is but I reckon about 50/50! But this time not my cup of tea for a few reasons. Fluff: it's too magicy. You're altering your opponents weapons, depriving them of shields, spears, halberds, etc. That's magic. And very invasive magic too. It's too much turning a prince into a frog for me and so not what I feel DH magic should do. Mechanics: the spell interferes with too many different aspects. Ours/our opponents mun…
