Hey, now, I did get 2nd place for Player’s Choice for my Greenskins at Southern Assault GT last month. Tied for 2nd with a few others for Judge’s Choice, too. I think I’ll do them alright. I want to think of good unit fillers and such, though. That makes a big different, I think.
I do have a thread for my first go at an army list. It uses lots of Hobgoblins, which I don’t see a lot in regular Chaos Dwarf armies. I think my experience with Goblins can really help out. Throw in the high Ld bubble that the CD bring and I’m pretty excited about their ability to hold.
I’m also surprised that no one else comments. I’ve always heard CDO was a tight and welcoming community. Maybe I’m spoiled with Da Warpath.
I worked on my CD’s that I have already as I wait for the Mantic to arrive. I got the Chaos Dwarf warriors up to snuff, except for some broken weapons on a couple. Maybe the Mantic guys have different options that I can use.
I cannot find my Great Taraus or death rocket! I know they are somewhere in my hobby room, but I don’t know where…
I did buy Kera’s old CD’s and they came. Her Taraus is much cooler than the old GW one. Maybe I can sell the old one to pay for my new Hobgoblins? I probably can sell some older stuff, too. A few extra characters and such.
Not sure what to do with my older hobgoblins at this point as I am sold on the new ones.
I’m surprised about the lack of Mantic stuff, too. Is it that people who come here are more die hard GW types? Or old schoolers who have the old models and don’t need new ones? Maybe people just don’t like 'em? I’m surprised if that’s the case. They seem like a good alternative to big hats for me (though I like the big hats).
I built up my army when my gaming store was a GW, so non-GW models were a big no even if mantic had been around. Starting from scratch at a gaming store where it wouldn’t matter, I might have gone for Mantic, but the style simply doesn’t fit in very well with my current stuff and it’s not quite good enough for me to ignore that and buy some.
I can see I you already have a bunch and want to stay the same. I am coming in late and don’t have too many big hats. I love 'me, though. What I like about Mantic is that they still have crazy hats. I hate the Trent Reznor looking guys from the Hellcannon crew, so I like that Mantic doesn’t look like them. I also think I could add in the big hats without too much fuss.
I am used to doing crazy things with my units with my OnG, but other armies seem so serious that I am not sure what to do for them. No Animosity or other crude behavior to do with the CD’s. Need to look at tjub’s blog again.
