I was pondering alternative special choices for the chaos dwarf army list. Now, anyone who has seen my army blog knows that I converted some Robotic slaves; here is my humble attempt at some experimental
rules and possible fluff of Demon Bots. Feel free to comment.
Demon bots were created by first binding a soul to the body (this was mostly done with slaves). The body is then burned and mixed into molten metal. The metal is then forged and molded into bizarre humanoid-like exoskeletons and thus, Demon Bots came into existence.
Unit size 10+
M WS BS S T W I A Ld
4 4 3 3 4 1 3 1 8
Demon Bots have a 3+ armor save. No Heroes or lords may be attached to this unit and Demon Bots never use the leadership of the general. Immune to Psychology except to stupidity. The whole unit is armed with either two hand weapons or great weapons. The whole unit can be armed with crossbows at 5 pts a model.
Because of the way that Demon Bots are made, they suffer from stupidity.
I definitely think you hit on a cool concept, one that I have thought of myself. I kind of imagined that CDs would create really crazy creatures by binding daemons to machines a la Hellcannon. There’s so many possibilities that it really could be endless.
