How many crew to an Eruption Gun? I assume 2 as that's what the old Swivel Guns come with. Do they have heavy armour like other Chaos Dwarf crew?

I might have missed it, but does it also say what the base size is?

no, it's missing that description. I have been playing it as 2 crew, "death rocket" sized base.

As a warmachine the deathrocket doesn't have a standard base size. I woudl recommend that it be listed as a 40mm base.

Is it reasonable to drop the cost of Chaos Armour for these boys by one point to +1/+2 points?

At present, a fully kitted out CD Warrior is 14 pts (Chaos Armour,shield and a great weapon), which is the cost of an Obsidian Guardsman without a shield. Given the higher WS, and S of the Obsidian Guard and their special abilities, the cost of the Chaos Armour for the Warriors should be dropped slightly to compensate.

I do agree that a 1 pt. decrease should be in order. 14 pts. for a S3 Dwarf is a losing proposition to me. Ironbreakers are cheaper, S4, and WS5. Keep that in mind.

What about making the basic chaos dwarf a "slaver".
Just steal the slaver rule from the dark elf corsairs and you're good to go.

Chaos dwarves as a race, are slavers. Giving core warriors the slaver rule may encourage people fielding chaos dwarves, in a chaos dwarf army.
I wouldn't give it to the guys with blunderbusses, it's obvious they're not taking prisoners. Likewise, Obsidian Guards have a task at hand other than slaving.

I don't recall the text, but I think the slaver rule lets you force your opponent to re-roll his flee distance when fleeing from the slavers.

nobody would give them the full kit your comments suggest. People will run them at 12 pts w/ chaos armor and shield, or 10 pts with just great weapons.
