Ok so i'm buying all these models listed when i get home, and i'm thinking this is gonna be really damn good especially if played smart. I think for alot of situations i will have to go for Scenario wins. I just love the Dwarves though, so i gotta play 'em. (Here's hoping they get a badass battle engine!)
Gorten Grundback +7 Total 50
2x Blaster 6
2x Full Gun Corps 16
1 FRee UA
+1 ua 3
2x Full Forge Guard 16
1 Artillery Corps
Ok so this is my initial thoughts, this gives me +4 to my deployment zone and AD on my Highshields. With Advance move on my Battlegroup. Now i'm a little unsure about the Rhulic Mercenary Solos, that dosen't mean characters right? So i can't take Thor or Herne and John?
Can you skip tier 3 and get tier 4?
So my thoughts on playing this army are, with being so far up the board in the begining i'll easily be able to force scenarios, I'm still deciding if bricking up with the shields and Gorten (need to actually try it) since no blast damage and no KD would be pretty sick. Or spreading them out especially in the later parts, i'm thinking with good positioning and all the Ranked Attacks, the Forge guard will be behind the Shield Corps, able to charge through them (not literally) but with reach and good placement, making them alot harder to get too, while the Shield Guard soak up alpha strikes.
That's my general Idea for those guys, so i was thinking literally to force scenarios with my guys bricked around Gorten, the Blasters on the flanks, and the Basher and Driller up the middle.
With Molten Metal i can drop 24 dmg onto a Colossal if need be. And Dbl Tap with my Shields. on full CRAs. Not guaranteeing a kill, but a good chance .
Oh yah and using rock wall to block Charge Lanes and such, while trying to pop my feat early on the Scenarios. Pick up what kills i can, or obliterate what i can.
and Blocking LOS with Eruption since it's a cloud effect. As well as blocking Charge lanes.
Also if i can take the character solos for the Tier, that might change up my thought process here.
Ok so please be kind I don't have alot of experience with Dwarves at all, but i can't wait to play and i'm excited, i know i'd have alot of trouble against incorporeal models, and stealth. But that again is the idea of forcing the Scenarios with hard to crack targets. (i hope). Also i'm not looking to change the list up too much! but if you think there is something i could take instead that would enhance it much better then let me know .
