[Archive] why don't cd uses hammers

Kera foehunter:

Here one !!while looking thew my cd supplement book i notice cd don’t fight with hammers?? only the chaos dwarf sorceror and the taurus rider . i thought this was odd being Dwarfs(at one time)

Ancient History:

You could easily rule Chaos Dwarf Warriors use hammers. Makes converting a unit of Hammers led by a warrior wielding the Black Hammer of Hashut easier.

Kera foehunter:

well i was woundering why they don’t have any cd figures with hammers

or was this planly over looked


Do you mean actual minis edited by GW? Well our latest range 4/5th edition was one of the poorest ever. Even tough I love them I have to admit it. We could be satisfied we ayt least had characters with hammers!

GW says that our was the worst selling army ever but they do not admit they released just two basic types of troops: blunderbusses and axemen!! :h


Some of the old 3rd edition metal figures have hammers.


I just completed making 22 CD Warriors with Hammers. I am working on the command now. Pics to follow.

Kera foehunter:

Most likely a question of style. GW likes to differentiate armies after all. Axes are a lot more Eeevil than swords or hammers. Spiky maces even more evil. And so on and so forth.
And it is a lot easier to make axes look "ded killy" as our slaves are wont to say than hammers. Just tack on almost impossible looking spikes, razoredges and curves. A hammer always tend to be just a big lump of metal.

Kera foehunter:

Well i don’t think the axes of the axemen look evil ,there kinda swiss gaurd looking

more of show than fighting with


Going by the models, hammers could be considered a status symbol

Kera foehunter:

Best answer !!! cornixt

zorn sabretooth:

ahh i know from somewhere i can’t remember though that hammers are the holy weapon of hashut so can only be weild

by lords and sorcereors

oops, I gave some hobgoblins hamers :P

Sneaky gits indeed!

Kera foehunter:

maybe there holy hobgoblins!!!


maybe there holy hobgoblins!!!

Kera foehunter
oh, they'll be holey when the sorcerers are through with them:hat off


The whole perspective is this: dwarfs traditinally are associated with thecaxe and hammer, so why not have them use a sword I’d something else to seperate them from the norm?


Chaos Dwarfs would look quite nice modelled with scimitars or Shamshirs. Maybe even a Kopesh like the TK use.

Kera foehunter:

yea !! we pirates know how cool swords are!!


How about the CD big hat champion models?
