Alrighty so i'm a 13F in the Army, which is a Spotter for Artillery and with the JFO Identifier i can spot for Airstrikes as well.
I'm thinking how much i love the dwarves and how i just love all their models, and i want to play them so badly when i'm home. I love the Mortar Team sculpt (except for the female..no offense), and i keep thinking how badly i want to play it! but that viably it just really isn't all that great, but would be alot of fun to field! So i'm like, why dosen't warmachine have spotters? First off Artillery for all time has always been huge, Very powerful on the battlefield and what cooler way to lay into the enemy with long ranged but inaccurate (not when we call for it ) fires. Well a Spotter Solo, would be super badass! Especially if it was not a character, and more like a Sergeant or an Officer for the Dwarves specifically!
What could it do? simple, Allow the Artillery Pieces (as well as future Big Berthas i hope the Dwarves get *crosses fingers*) to gain the Fire for Effect ability, just like in real life. And of course it would also be great if they were stealthed (sneaky sneaky OP) or had the ability to at least dig in. Anddddd Provide an accuracy bonus if they only shoot one round instead of the special action? Whilllleeee Also increasing the range by 4 inches? Eh? That's only if the Mortar forefits it's activation to fire during the spotters activation .
Hey don't knock me for dreaming, but i just totally see it! I see the Dwarves having something like a solo trained to Dial in their fires accurately and precisely. Timely and Accurate Fires. 'Cause i would so love to run a 50 point themed force, with 3 Mortars in it .
And NO, Master Gunner Dougal MacNaile does not count! Aside from that i can't stand his model, it's just not the same, but still good.
Ideas, suggestions, If we all hope really hard perhaps PP will make it ! Maybe they make it to support the troops! Lol ok that's just shameless.
