[Archive] First 500 using the BfSP box



Been working on my first 500 pts using the contents of the BfSP (plus a few extra stunties). Let me know if this is way off track:


Chaos Dwarf Sorceror

- Lvl 2


15 Chaos Dwarf Warriors

- Musician, Champion

11 Chaos Dwarf Warriors

- Blunderbuss


Earthshaker Cannon

Luckily, I only need 1 extra Blunderbuss and 3 extra Warriors to make this happen with BfSP, and it shouldn’t be too hard to get another lot of the Dwarvish half in exchange for the green half :slight_smile:

I’m torn between getting a vintage Earthshaker, buying a Hellcannon, or scratch building my Earthshaker. Has anyone tried using the BfSP cannon as the base for this (couldn’t find any projects on it in the Conversions section).

Thanks in advance!

at 500 points you dont need the sorcerer. id drop him for a cheap hobgoblin hero since you have ld9 all around anyhow. also saves some points for some hobgobs or a bolt thrower.


Welcome to the forum:hat

I think somebody was planning to turn a Bfsp cannon into a death rocket cant remember who tho.

Your CD warriors could do with a std as it will most likely get swamped being your fighting unit


does the box come with a steam drill for the miners?


You can use the miners to fill out your warrior ranks. No steam drill included unfortunately, but there is a mine cart which fits on a 40mm base to work as a decent unit filler.

The cannon is too, er, cannony, to be used for an earthaker IMO, but you could use it as a counts-as.


What are you going to do with the greenskins that come in the BfSP box?

Use them as Hobgoblins or Goblins?


Thanks for all the replies! To answer some question:

@ Malificant: The lvl2 Sorceror’s in their because he’s apt to be in my 2000 pt. list and this is sort of my “core” 500 pts.

@ Canix: Agreed on the standard (heck, and some more guys), but I’m torn on where to get the points. Drop the lvl 2 upgrade and get the standard and 3 warriors (3 ranks of 6 CDs)? I was planning on using the cannon base for the Earthshaker and the actual cannon for a Death Rocket myself; however, I want to see how my CDs go before I bite off more than my green-stuff skills can chew.

@ Wallacer: Gobbos will be traded for more dwarves or slowly transformed into Hobbos. I’m focusing on the big hats and warmachines now; I’ll deal with the slaves later!

Thanks again!
