WELCOME and FAQ!

Postby mattbird » Fri Apr 24, 2009 12:29 pm

Welcome to the Official Indy GT Chaos Dwarf Playtest Forum!

The purpose of these forums is for the gaming community to provide feedback and play testing on a new Chaos Dwarf army list that will (tentatively) be legal to use for 4 Indy GTs in the northeast US; Colonial, Conflict, Crossroads, and War Camp. Look in this space in the coming weeks for an initial play test list to be posted, at which point announcements will be made on all relevant club and event message boards.

FAQ

1. Really?
Yes, really. The 4 TO of the events listed above have agreed to allow the forthcoming list to be used in their respective events, based on their approval.

2. Who is writing it? Can I suggest rules?
It is being written by Kevin Coleman, who has authored other official and semi-official WHFB rules in the past. While you may of course suggest new rules and such, Kevin is captain of the ship, as the saying goes.

3. How much of a departure will it be from the current rules?
That's up to the gaming community to decide. It could either be built right on top of the existing rules, just adding new units and magic items, or it could be a complete rewrite.

4. Will there be new units?
There will be new rules for existing 3rd edition models such as swivel guns and tenderizers/whirlwinds, as well as a very limited number of new units.

5. How good will this book be?
We are aiming to create a list that would be a lower/middle tier army. We do not want anyone to ever complain that somebody won an event because they were using a broken list. We will err on the side of caution in this respect.

6. How is it being tested?
The list will be open for anyone to test and give feedback on. As such, it may be the most play tested army book in WHFB history.

I assume that it will not have special characters or will have - but they won't be allowed!

Sounds like a fun project and after having an enjoyable game at this past Colonial versus Eric McKee's Chaos Dwarves I look forward to seeing the mass return of the funny hats.

There will be new rules for the 3 special characters from the 5th edition book; Zhatan the Black, Astragoth, and the hobgoblin guy, who's name escapes me.

Kevin, in case you haven't seen this:

http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/

These guys seem pretty dedicated (and by dedicated, I mean CRAZY!). But I'm sure they'd be interested. These are the kinds of jokers that would fly down to the NorthEast just to play in a GT with the NEW chaos dwarves.
Jaghatai, on the Pale Rider event: I hop on this board to post a simple NEWCC question, end up looking at some interacial lesbian action and watch a religious meltdown. You guys know how to party!

Yeah, they are dedicated, certainly!

Once we have a list up, I'm going to contact them directly, and also see if I can solicit some artwork for the army book.

Great. Looking forward to seeing the actual list.

Is it going to have some sort of 40mm base special slot? Like steam-punk chaos dwarf golem critters? Most importantly, will blunderbusses be able to take a shield?

They definitely shouldn't get shields w/ blunderbusses.

If they got that no one would ever take normal CDs.
