More Dwarf overload again today. It seems the closer we get to the release date the more they're Dwarfing everything else.

Warhammer Fantasy Rumors

Dwarf Rules

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Gyrocopter Update: it is nearly 1/2 the original point cost.  For approx. 100 pts you can field 1 with vanguard.  You can have 6 in an army and 12 in grand army.  It has a template gun as before that can be swapped out for a Brimstone Cannon: 18", str 5, armor piercing, dwarf crafted, multiple shot d3, quick to fire.

Gyrobomber Update: The Clattergun is 24", Str 4, armor piercing, dwarf crafted, multiple shot (4), quick to fire.  both Gyro's can get vanguard.

Conflicting reports, even from me, concerning number of runes.  There are 2x Weapon Rune pages, 4 additional pages with Armor/Banner/Talisman/Engineering Runes. 1x Ancestral Heirloom page (specific named items).

Runes are broken down like so: Rune of Blah Cost: X/Y/Z.  x-y-z is the number of runes of that type you can place on an item, increasing its cost.  Description of its exact rules follows a brief "fluff" description. One thing of note: A cannon can have up to 100 pts of Runes!

Thorek is in the book. Bugman is a hero level.

The Unit Breakdown is thus: Core (Warriors/Quarrelers/Thunderers/Longbeards); Special (Hammers/Ironbreakers/Slayers/Miners/Cannon/Grudge Thrower/Bolt Thrower/Gyrocopter); Rare (Organ Gun/Flame Cannon/Ranger/ Irondrakes / Gyrobomber).  It is possible I got one of the Rare and Special guns flip flopped.

I double checked (could still be wrong) but Dwarves no longer have -1 to move when charging/fleeing.

Dwarf Statline in the Box

I picked up a unit of dwarf hammers today. And much to my surprise it shows stats for both hammerers and longbeards on the back of the instructions.

Hot On The Wire.

Tutorial: Painting Warlord's Plastic Roman Legionaries

My friend Scott got very excited by my 28mm Roman project. So excited he's been amassing an army of his own. I have to paint them though...
