Unless you're just dead set on running Brun & Lug and *not* running non-Rhulic, non-Ogrun forces, then going with Highborn or Four Star is recommended.
After reading this thread I have decided to comment, forget and ignore what some people have said about what you must get next. First decide how you want to play, are you a long range, close range or someone who like to cover all your bases, this is always a good start when building a army. Now this is the only thing I'm going to say you should get, the merc book, this will give the most of the units, also you may want to pick up a copy of Wrath if you don't have one, or you could ask friends who play if you borrow or look at there copy's if they have them, this will let you see what units are out there, and help you decide what you want to buy for you list.
I am A Rhulic player, Madhammer is great. Most the time I will just use Rhulic models in my list, manly because I love the look for a full dwarf army on the board, but that being said there are lots of great mercs out there, steelheads are a great unit and cheap Thor is great in any merc list, I love the Avalancher, I love the look of it, the way it's great at killing stuff with Thor, I have 3 I think.
People will always say don't use a unit, as others are better, I my self have units I wont use as I don't like them and think others are better, but remember every unit has it's place and it's use.
The last thing I will say is read the Threads, you can find lots of very good information, tactics and combos. I don't play just to win, I play just to have fun, winning is just a great bonus
I realize post count means nothing, and for all I know you could be a mod with 15,000+ posts under another account. But it is a little funny seeing someone come in, and for their very first post ever, say:
It would be like a 5 year old grabbing you by the collar, pulling you in real close, and then saying "Let me tell you a little something I've learned about life over the years, and don't pay any mind to what these other idiots think."After reading this thread I have decided to comment, forget and ignore what some people have said about what you must get next.
Like I said, post count really means nothing, but at first glance, it looks a little funny. Maybe that 5 year old has really gone through some messed up stuff.
It hasn't. I simply have no new news to post. If I posted right now, the posts would look like this.
Still waiting on War Room
Still waiting on Ossrum
Still waiting on Colossal
Still waiting for GenCon
I am planning on getting some Rhulic paint jobs up. But other than that, things have gotten a bit stale.
Well if you guys really care about my opinion that much, I'll post it.
New to the game, but I saw the Rhulic models in the stores and thought they looked pretty cool. I'm primarily a Khador guy, but I am entertaining the idea of building a strictly Rhulic army at some point. I will admit to knowing nothing about them, but I'm not keen on the idea of seafaring Dwarves like Lord Rockbottom... still, looks like there's enough "traditional" stuff to make an entertaining and appealing Searforge army nonetheless.
Brings back fond memories of my Dwarven army that was redacted from that other game...

Many players put high stock in the use of Lord Rockbottom in dwarf armies - usually with the aim of helping stop failed leadership checks. I am not one of those guys. I would rather save the two points and take my chances on passing most tests if i need to. Making a LD 9 test isn't exaxtly a difficult thing to do in my experience.
It's good to hear that, though - I'm not too keen on a model that looks like Cap'n Crunch.
Mentioning Madelyn - I also tried to field her with Gorten, but I've mostly faced the problem that Gorten isn't able to advance forward as he's standing behind jacks. Yep, it's a solution to put him in front, but then he can get shot or charged. And I can't allow myself to camp on all of his focus all the time.
She didn't really work for me to be honest.
Seriously, though, I usually just walk Gorten and his jacks forward and sit at ARM 25-27 (depending on upkeeps). Nothing scares me then, and I'll eventually just grind/feat the enemy right out of the scenario.
In Searforge I just upkeep SOG and camp the other 4. My jacks don't need to run.

/endthread.You can own a 66' Impala without classic flame pin-striping too, but what the hell is the point in that.
In all seriousness, a full spec'd out Searforge list looks amazing on the table. <sniff>
[Must have Brun and Lug!]
Working on being able to field every merc teir 4 list.
I am totally stoked. I was in a nearby hobby store this morning, looking through their pretty extensive collection of Warmachine merchandise, when I discovered the Gorten Grundback battlegroup box. Apparently they didn't know what they had, because it was still priced at $40. I didn't have the money on hand, but when I explained to my wife that it was OOP and the models would cost $70-80 altogether to buy individually, she went back with me and bought it. I may not have a gamer wife, but bless her for being so understanding about my gaming addiction.
