I found this in a Q&A session with the writer of the Skaven army book from right after it was release, which was what, four years ago? Anyways…
Hi Alessio. If I remember correctly, when questioned about a release schedule for army books during your VC transcript, you mentioned something to the effect that Chaos Dwarfs would be near the end of the cycle. As the future of CD’s has been a hot message board topic, I and apparently a lot of other players would love an idea of what the future holds for the big hats…can you comment?
Sure, my comment is "no comment."
Couldn’t find the mentioned VC transcript unfortunately. Not very relevant to any new book news since this is 6th edition, but its still interesting none the less.
I hope Gav decides to head CDwarfs, since I’ve talked to him and he says that when not if they do them, there gonna use 3rd ed as a base, which most of you seem to think of as the glory days, but i can’t say as it was before my time
As has been stated, Alessio is not exactly the heart of balance.
One of the biggest mistakes was having him write the Skaven book, which was, by his own admittance several times over, his favorite army.
I have stated it before and I will again. Any army that has to rely on bad luck in order to lose a fight is not balanced whatsoever. Ratling Guns, Warpfire Throwers, all of these firing into Hand to hand combat with cheap arse VP units or even swarms…don’t think I need to say much about that.
but skaven get to kill there own!!! ive killed more of my own troops than my enimies tbh i dun have the luck as a skaven genral id roal a dubble 1 with a tatling gun every time, tbh i dun have 1 i use warpfie throwers ,
yes cheap units but goblins are the same,
with the loss of the verminlord i feel theyve lost somthing maybe as a specail charecter ?
hopefully the skaven will be balanced in the next book but skaven are beatable try saying that to a slayer cult or a slanesshi chaos army
