Plain of Zharr Allied Army - Chaos Dwarfs Army of Infamy for The Old World

This is being written primarily as an allies list to buff out the differences between the 6th edition list and the TOW list, so it doesn’t include most of the units that are already available. Maybe I’ll fill it out to just be an update of the 6th edition list.

Early draft, not complete or anything yet.

Chaos Dwarfs Army of Infamy

Plains of Zharr Force Composition List

Characters
Up to 50% of your army’s points may be spent on:
Daemonsmith Sorcerers, Infernal Seneschals and Hobgoblin Khans

Core
At least 25% of your army’s points value must be spent on:
Dwarf Warriors (see Dwarfen Mountain Holds army list)
Dwarf Thunderers (see Dwarfen Mountain Holds army list)
Hobgoblin Cutthroats

Special
Up to 50% of your army’s points may be spent on:
Orc Mobs (see Orc & Goblin Tribes army list)
Goblin Mobs (see Orc & Goblin Tribes army list)
Bull Centaurs

Rare
N/A

Notes:
The Irondrake weapons would be much better as a blunderbuss than the simple handgun that Thunderers have, but the buffed-up stats of the dwarfs that carry them make things a lot messier. There’s room to just create a new unit, just as would be needed for cavalry-sized Bull Centaurs.

Do they let slaves anywhere near the temple(s) for anything other than sacrifice and maybe cleaning? I’ve always imagined that it’s mostly Sorcerers/Sorcerer-Prophets and Bull Centaur guards, with backup from Chaos Dwarf Warriors.

Hmm, yeah, I was just trying to come up with a different name. Maybe just Plains Defence Force or Slave Expedition Force would be better.

Fair enough!! I went with something much wordier, which suits my Chaos Dwarf’s sense of self-importance, inflated egos, and outlandish titles.

Kind of fits with their over-compensating hats :wink:

Since this is intended to be taken as allies, that means a 2400pt army can only take up to 600pts, and only 300 of that can be Special, so BCs have to be special to be feasible. That puts them as having to be less than 27pts each, which is less than Chaos Knights. For a 2K army, they need to be less than 23pts each for a unit of 10.

Made it look all nice. A little updated compared to the one I put on the discord a few days ago.
