With a hefty tax refund in hand, and a bit of luck. I finally purchased an army of Big Hat Chaos Dwarves. Ive always wanted an army of Big Hats. I just never found a decent deal & had the money at the same time. But finally the twin suns have conjoined as the prophecy has foretold!
Im going to use the “normal” Dwarf rules. No greenskins, all Chaos dwarves.
I just need to fill a few small gaps in my army. I should 2k- 3k+ points easy.
Anyway…its good to be back among such short evil folk.
So I have pretty much all I need now. Just a few more minor things to fill out units. I particularly need extra war machine crew members.
Im doing an all Chaos Dwarf army using Dwarf rules. I ran into a slight problem with war machines. Dwarf war machines have 3 crew members and an option for an “apprentice” engineer with pistol or handgun. I can use an extra Blunderbuss trooper for the engineer, but Deathrockets only have 2 crew members.
Sorcerer = Runesmith
Astragoth = Lord with Shieldbearers (to represent bionics)
Hero = Thane
Warriors = Warriors
Deathrockets = Bolt throwers
Earthshakers = Grudgethrowers
I like the deathrocket= bolt throwers because of the 2 for 1 slot. I figure earthshakers = grudgethrowers because of the blast template.
So far I have:
3 units of 25 Warriors (all metal !!)
3 units of 20 Blunderbuss
I just have to model up a Battle standard bearer. Im also planning to buy a Anvil of doom & just use a Sorcerer & 2 Champions in place of the Runesmith & Anvil guards.
Id like to convert a Throne of Power but throne- carriers are a big problem. Im not a very good converter.
That’s quite odd. Why not use the Dwarf Bolt Thrower and add hobgoblins to it?
I think I’m missing the concept of this army. Are you trying to make a Chaos Dwarf army that can be played as a Dwarf army? An interchangeable force? IMHO, it’s better to just keep them as Chaos Dwarf only and try not to bridge the gap between two different armies.
