Chaos Dwarf Battle Wagon

The Chaos Dwarf Battle Wagons are mobile fortresses capable of housing entire regiments of warriors.

Battle Wagon general rules

Deduct 1�?� movement for each of the Engine Crew killed (presumed the wagons can move 3").

The Battle Wagon housing is solid iron and will provide Hard Cover for all models.

Missile fire from the wagons are treated as if the entire crew can fire on the same target and have a 360 degree line of sight, regardless of where they are standing.  

Treat as a War Machine in all regards, with the exception that it is not permitted to be deployed in a building.  Engine Crew and any other crew are considered a single crew, except that only the Engine Crew can move the wagon.  All crew members can operate any War Machine(s) on board. 

In combat the crew are treated as having ‘ranks’ 5 wide and will provide Supporting Attacks.

Special Rules

Stubborn, Animosity (only once the CD crew are dead)

nitroglysarine:

now that dwarves the Empire War wagon (pardon the pun)

Build a model!!!

Grimstonefire:

Oh I intend to if WF don’t. By the sounds of things they will be doing a blunderbussers one, if the other models sell well enough. The hobgoblin one would be a cool model anyway.

Not sure whether it would be better to have 2 levels of troops (like a small ziggurat) or not? With a gap around the edges so the crew could move around.

nitroglysarine:

armoured double decker bus!

do it!!

Fequiil:

i totally love these rules, but what i’m missing is points values! how expensive are those things and what cannons are on it?

Grimstonefire:

How does 330pts for the CD Battlewagon and 260 for the Hobgoblin one sound?

Fequiil
that was my question to at the woh thread too,thx for the answer
points sounds good,has to be tested if its worth that points or if its overpowered or whar ever...time will show :)

Grimstonefire:

Essentially these are just large chariots with a huge number of crew in hard cover. So I imagine the points cost may be a tad over or under powered, but I can’t see these being more than 100 points over or under what I put above.

Willmark:

Someone needs to paint it red and have the upper deck open for sight seeing around London… Oh wait :wink:
