[Archive] Quick Question on Heavy Weapons Guys

Tarrakk Blackhand:

I’m just wondering about the heavy weapons guys. Post Illegal Stats! Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie!

- just joking!:hat off

But seriously…

I’ve just finished with my 12 Warriors from BFSP and was going to move on to the Good Dwarf Miners which are going to be converted into a Heavy Weapon Warrior Team.

It’s saying that the CD Heavy Weapon Team can have a Great Axe, but I’m wondering if they can also have a shield as it says that they can “replace their shield if they are going to take up the Blunderbuss”, but doesn’t really say if they have to drop the shield for the Great Axe. (At least I’m reading it that they can have both the Great Axe and Shield)

Correct me if I’m wrong.


Sheds a tear as he begins converting the Miners…


My understanding was always that they can take the GW, but they must keep the shield.

They cannot have BB and shield, which is a real shame.

Some people I know just have a regiment base (20mm X 80mm) with shields piled on to show them.  They put it behind the regiment.  Thats for Dwarfs, but of course CD warriors without BB are always armed with shields, so unless it really messes up your conversion they should really be modelled on.

Or you can use house rules and take off 1pt/ model (what I do)!

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Kool! Ok, I’m getting close to hacking off the miner’s head and axe. Going to replace both with Chaos Warrior parts.


Check my blog or the image gallery, thats exactly what I have done with my 2nd warrior unit toting my "count as’ army standard.

Tarrakk Blackhand:

What page # on your 24+ page Blog is that? :smiley:


If you find some shields, attach them to their backs?


the thunderers box comes with a bucketload of small shields which fit on to the miners quite nicely


What page # on your 24+ page Blog is that? :D

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Did I ever post the pics of these guys?

I have finished the 8 of them, but still have to paint them up.


Thank you Mr. Blackhand, you’ve got me inspired to make more CD… ones with GW this time and the first of my Helm style.

Tarrakk Blackhand:

You’re welcome!

I have to get back on track and paint these guys as well as the rest of my army!


The new CD warriors are very nice. Nice, clean GS work, which I find is difficult to do. Hats off to you Tarrack!

Tarrakk Blackhand:

ThanX…and I did all this last year! :smiley: I still have some more to finish. Perhaps tonight?
