Question-if one takes a Bull Centaur lord, do these guys count as a required Core? I would think so, but in the Core section you've got that only Dwarf Warriors count as your minimum core choice. I would think that part of the 'bonus' in taking a Bull Centaur Lord instead of, say, a Priest, would be the the reduction in Chaos Dwarf Warrior blocks.

Garret you are correct. A Bull Centaur unit taken in this manner counts as a Core unit. I'll make that more clear in the next draft...

In an effort to keep things streamlined and easy to understand for new players that have not seen the list, and might have it just popped on them, I see no good reason to change Bull Centaurs at all from their current stats/abilities. They are great as is, and the only reason a player does not currently take 2 units is because they are rare, and compete with the earthshaker.

They should keep their access to a magic banner.

I was actually taking two as I learned the ravening hordes list despite the rare selection. I don't really see a reason to change them much, although they get savaged by shooting. Once they're in combat they're amazing though.

I do agree with all those statements, right now they are damn good. The only change I would like to see to them is for them to get the option of getting chaos armor for the appropriate point cost (5ish per, with heavy armor being 2ish per).
Fast, like kittens with jetpacks.

They should be Cav, not infantry.
They are on a 25x50mm base, and the rules are pretty clear, that makes them "cav".
Now, if they fight like an infantry model, that's fine; but for the sake of spells and effects that target cav, I'd make sure it is clear they are Cav.
Hell, Skaven weapon teams count as cav since they are on that 25x50mm base, I don't see why these guys shouldn't.


Look out! Bull Centaurs! Quick, everyone hide in the building.
