Feb 20, They should make this guy part of the Dwarfs army list. serious hit with the new Army Book as anything that can be done by them can usually. created by mattlDwarfsa community for 8 years. message the Looking for 8th Edition Dwarfs army book. I have the PDF if you want that. Apr 16, Has there been any scan of the Dwarfs army book floating around? .. Does anyone have a good pdf of lizardmen 8th edition army book?.

Upgraded to Heavy Armour and dropped two points makes them useful again, they still put the hurt on units plus with Shields and a rune of Groth One Eye nearby they make a surprisingly tough anvil to setup a beautiful countercharge with that unit of Great Weapon Quarrelers you have sitting beside them. Special Units[ edit ] Hammerers: 2 Attacks now. Stubborn elite Dwarfs with Great Weapons. For 14 points , you get a warrior of chaos stat line barring less initiative and a point runic banner allowance.

Careful who they fight though, they might attack like a Chaos Warrior but they die far easier than one especially to ranged attacks and they cannot afford to get into a grind, that's what Ironbreakers are for. Ironbreakers: Elite Tarpit.

Keep them near your BSB and you have a solid unit. Give them the rune of Stoicism for Stubborn or Strollaz's Rune for Vanguard to shove a mean tarpit in your opponent's face right from go or put a cheap thane with an oathstone in the unit for a great flank guarding unit. Slayers: This unit has changed a bit, and it's debatable if it's for better or worse.

dwarf army book 8th edition

They have also gained the Deathblow rule, which allows each Slayer to strike once before they die in a blue-horror-esque style, useful on Troll Slayers as you get your full amount of normal attacks, not so useful on the Giant Slayers of which you can once again make an entire unit out of.

They are very good against static armies that take war machines and the like, take in small groups of 10 or so and go war machine hunting or rear charging with them. As far as upgrades go, the drill isn't bad, but don't take the charges. Your miners should do the charging. They shouldn't be charged. Grudge Thrower: Its a standard stone thrower for 80 points.

Can be buffed up with runes and engineers, the right combination can make this a very effective war machine. These can seriously troll T3 armies. Bolt Thrower: Not terrible, but with a point increase to 55 pts a pop and loss of a 15 pt BS4 Engineer they became far more expensive to use effectively. Don't bother unless you are list tailoring and they serve a specific purpose.

Cannon: At points cannons are so, so. They are necessary, but usually aren't worth taking more than twice unless you're running a very heavy gunline list. Of course the price goes up as you add runes and engineers, which you should do to make it very reliable, and if you still have the battle for skull pass model which is a tiny as fuck cannon model , be sure to field those.

Cannons are best vs models with high numbers of wounds, good saves, high point cost or any combination of those. Gyrocopter: Gyrocopters have completely changed with the introduction of the new Army Book. They are now the dwarf equivalent of great eagles.

Changed only slightly from the previous edition, they now have a gun choice, either keeping the old one a str 3 armour piercing template , or a gun that fires d3 str 5, flaming, armour piercing shots. They also get their bomb back which can be handy when harassing opponents trying to approach your gunline or positioning behind units about to flee so they take Dangerous Terrain tests. Vanguard can be useful, but make sure that they are never in a position to get charged.

Rare Units[ edit ] Rangers: Sadly the days of scouting hordes are over. Having been moved to the rare section, rangers have now the same role as chameleon skinks, shades and shadow warriors, except they do it worse. However if you have any Quarrelers with Great Weapons spare that aren't fufilling your core requirement, then you should swap them for Rangers, because they have throwing axes and scout for exactly the same price.

Bugman's Rangers: If you field Josef Bugman, one of your Rangers units is eligible to become Bugman's Rangers and Josef has to join the unit and cannot leave. Bugman's Rangers cost an additional 3pts which makes them the most expensive troops in the list!

They fight better than regular Rangers, hit harder and will throw S5 thowing axes at BS4! Something like 15 BF4 crossbows in the flank or behind the frontline can really ruin your opponent's day, and he will have to divert something meaningfull to deal with this threat, as this unit is not easily dismissed. Irondrakes: If you were ever worried about those Chaos Warriors posing a threat, just take these guys and you'll never have to worry about them ever again as they absolutely murder high Toughness high Armour squads and pump out far more shots than your warmachines, as well as making excellent Monstrous Infantry killers.

Their models also look badass. Organ Gun: The rage machine from the previous edition is revamped and is now BS based, but rolls two artillery dice rather than one. It can also now be given up to 50 points of Runes, as well as putting an engineer on it allowing it to hit a lot more than it previously could. Also, the range is now 30" allowing them to keep up with your Crossbows in range and even hit those elves trying to snipe you. Flame Cannon: Against Gobbos, Monstrous Infantry and Skaven, it can be used very effectively to cause panic tests on any large unit, being able to throw down a str 5 flamer template is amazing in fantasy especially when it causes d3 wounds.

Don't be worried about taking one as its range is a lot longer than it looks, be sure to give it runes though, nothing's worse than having your cannon blow up when you really need those Night Goblins to panic. Gyrobomber: An extra large Gyrocopter that can wipe out entire hordes on its own, this thing will be a firing magnet, and as such can be used to distract the enemy away from a gunline, or stop the enemy from shooting your own guys if running a close combat list.

Building Your Army[ edit ] downloading Your Army[ edit ] download a battleline set or two to start, you can get a couple for the same price as a battalion from the official site if you know where to look. Do all of the warriors as the same type, 40 warriors in one unit is far more effective than two units of The shooty dwarfs should be assembled depending on who you usually face.

Thunderers and quarrelers should generally have shields.

The 4 cannons are really good both ways. Next, download a dwarf lord with shieldbearers. Gyrocopters will never go amiss, but make sure that you can afford it if you made the cannon into an organ gun. Keep downloading more dwarfs, a Runelord is no longer a good choice due to barely being better than the Runesmith for 60 pts more, but a BSB is still ever-useful. To make models look really good is easy, any detail you don't like just cover it with green stuff beard, and any model will always look better with an extra big bushy beard on top except for those otherwise stated.

Old Longbeard models are a good reference for these conversions. Also, braids on either side of the beard add a Celtic feel to the models which is reminiscent of the previous incarnation of Dwarf fluff when they were a little less viking-y. More beard seems to go a long way, especially because the plastic sculpts don't really compare to any of the newer models coming out.

Also bigger round shields do absolute wonders for Dwarf models, using thumbtacks or converted marauder shields make your models look amazing.

Army Composition[ edit ] Repeat after me. War machines and lots of shit that refuses to die. The nature of the Dwarf units is more restrictive than most other armies, since you basically have only two types of units: infantry and war machines.

You don't have cavalry, war beasts, monstrous units, monsters, swarms, you don't even have cheap chaff or skirmishers! This, together with M3 across the board Gyrocopters not counting means that Dwarf players historically tend to play rather stationary. But make no mistake, it might seem easier to play like this, but it means that mistakes during the deployment phase are so much worse, since you have little chance to remedy them.

With so little variation in your units, the differences often lie in the detail: Dwarf Warriors vs. Longbeards: With the exception of a pure gunline, you're going to field at least one of these two units. Field something like 30 in at least 5 ranks, they can take a lot of punches. Dwarfs in general work very well with Great Weapons, as they anyway have a low initiative.

They neither need a character to support nor the BSB-bubble but are still capable of holding their ground against most enemies. Be it Warriors or Longbeards, always have a full command. Quarrelers vs. Thunderers: Well, both weapons have merits. The crossbow has the longer range, the handgun is armour piercing. There are more occasions where the handgun takes the cake, but the crossbow just has these extra 6", so if your opponent stays out of the standard 24" distance or you have the first turn and your opponent was clever enough to deploy his troops half an inch behind the line , you would lose one round of shooting to move your Thunderers into threat range.

Additionally, Quarrelers can be equipped with great weapons as well as shields, Thunderers only have access to shields. The command units basically only give bonusses in close combat and are therefore not really necessary as a the champion doesn't have a better BS but an additional attack, b both weapons are move-or-fire so the musician's main benefit for shooting units - the swift reform - has no use here and c they cannot take magic standards and generally these units are not your dedicated close combat fighters anyway.

Save the 30 points and get two more troops instead, maybe unless you're playing a gunline and your shooting units also have to fill the role as close combat units, in that case definitely get a full command unit! Superiority breaks down like this, based on the distance to the enemy: 30"": Quarrelers duh 15"": Quarrelers 12"- 1": Thunderers Hammerers vs. Ironbreakers: Your two main elite fighting units.

With the changes in the last edition, Hammerers became just really, really good. They tick all the right boxes. Their only weakness, if any, is a relative low armour save, especially in close combat downloading them a shield only helps against shooting. But they dish out pain like little else and are stubborn, so they work just as well in two small units.

Ironbreakers on the other hand are very resilient and with S5 on the charge and maybe a Runesmith in the unit are not to be dismissed offensively either. I'd say it depends a little on what you have in your core and what you battleplan is.

You have a large block of Warriors with shields? Take a unit of Hammerers either side. You have Longbeards with great weapons? Have them around a unit of Ironbreakers.

Miners vs. Rangers: Your two choices for units with deployment special rules, a better form of Ambushers for the Miners and Scouts for the Rangers.

To be honest, neither is too great. Dwarfs are slow, very slow, so they just don't make for good ambushers. That means you can charge on turn 3 at the earliest, and only something which is still pretty close to the bord edge. And your opponent has a turn to react to your arrival. Minimum unit size for Miners is 10, at 10pts a model that's the cost of a Gyrocopter with vanguard.

But since they are a special unit and literally every other choice in that category is superior, there will probably only be one relatively small unit. Yes, it can work in the right situation, but for me it is not a choice for a general army. A vanguard Gyrocopter is more versatile.

Rangers have a similar problem. Scout is a nifty rule, and a decent unit with crossbows cleverly positioned can be a real threat for your opponent. Rangers would benefit from being Skirmishers, which would allow them more flexibility and would go nicely with their throwing axes which are just great, never forget you have them!

Similar to Miners, Rangers are clearly the weakest choice in the rare slot, it would help if they were special troops. Both Miners and Rangers have the problem that you will have a hard time reinforcing their position with your slow army, which often likes to stay back and give their war machines more time to shoot the enemy to pieces anyway.

Shop by category

They can be effective in the right situation, but most of the time that can also be done by Gyrocopters. And both units suffered a major blow when this one rune was scrapped which would have allowed a character to join either unit and gain their special deployment rule ideally combined with that other scrapped rune that forced an enemy unit to charge All in all Rangers can be a little more valuable, since you can get five at 14pts a piece and they can be deployed at a strategic position to deny it your enemy Scouts and Vanguard in 12", which can be crucial.

Cannon vs. Grudge Thrower vs. Bolt Thrower vs. Organ Gun vs. Flame Cannon: Phew, that's not easy, they're all great! Usually you shouldn't leave your hold without an Organ Gun, it's just too good. The good old Cannon strikes fear in your opponent's heart like little else, and there is always a target worth a shot. When in doubt or you don't know which army you will be facing, you don't make a mistake with fielding these two.

Most are formations that can be added to any army as a unit outside of the normal army organization.


Some noted below are additions to specific army lists and are taken following the normal rules for their unit type. Starting with the 4th edition rules, individual Army books were published for various races and realms of the Warhammer world that had coinciding miniatures armies to play the Warhammer Fantasy Battles tabletop game.

All army books were initially replaced by a get-by list in Ravening Hordes, distributed for free. It was the first edition to feature individual army books.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. An Army Book normally contains: Background - Information about the race and its place in the Warhammer world. This includes artwork, short stories, maps, timelines and copies of fictional documents. Bestiary - A list of the units, characters and war machines that can be chosen for use in a battle.

This includes their characteristic values, information on their weapon options, and any limitations on their use, as well as background information on each unit. An Army's special magic lore if applicable and special magic items are listed here. Hobby section - Information on collecting, building and painting an army from the army book.

Army List - Each entry from the bestiary is arranged by type Lord, Hero, Core, Special, Rare and given a points value, with more powerful units costing more points, so that battles are fought between balanced armies.But you can mix that up, if you want to: Generally your points are better spent on armour so that it's effects don't have to come into play, though if you're making a Slayer themed list this one can prove useful.

The entire army Hates the enemy.

Rune of Stoicism: Another easy way Dwarfs can get stubborn. In certain builds making two large units and putting them in your opponents face on Turn one can be fun, but you will more likely see one or two units used as mentioned above, chaff and Vanguard blockers.

You have hatred against every Skaven unit, that should give you a nice edge in close combat. As I predicted, the rate of posting new entries on Game of Travel significantly dropped down.
