Kuro Cleanbrush Posted March 4, 2012 Share Posted March 4, 2012 Well, so they're not really Kuro's dwarves; I'm just their maker. They're really the loyal followers and friends of King Dolgrim the Steadfast! As some of you may know if you've been keeping an eye on the ReaperCon section of the forums, I have set before myself the grand goal of completing a Warlord army to take with me to ReaperCon. However, a few of you may also be aware of the fact that I've NEVER truly finished an army for any miniature battle game before. That's a grim history, but history is about to change! EDIT: As of 5/14/2012, I officially completed King Dolgrim's Clan! This original post now showcases the whole army in all of their glory! First up is the army list: Dwarves - 999 points Troop 1 King Dolgrim the Steadfast (counts as King Thorgram Grimsteel) Mithril Armor Moril the Mender (counts as Ivar Silverfist) Rana Red Wrath (counts as Margara Firetongue) Berserker x 2 Shieldmaiden Warrior x 3 Halberdier x 4 Troop 2 Tolin Deathbell (counts as Tohil Steadyhand) Kirabell Sureheart (counts as Kara Foehunter) Piercer x 6 Troop 3 Svar Blackbolt (counts as Snorri Oathbreaker) Magic Ranged Weapon Troop 4 Luck Stone Next, a brief note on tactics: The goal of this army will be to present an impenatrable wall with the king and his line of warriors while Svar and all the other archers thin the enemy ranks and try to keep the main force from being outmaneuvered. Along those lines, the main force will follow the buddy system. Each warrior and the shieldmaiden will be teamed with a halberdier while the king will have Ivar's healing support. The berserkers will watch the flanks or act as shocktroopers or speedbumps. Margara will have a more loosely defined role, but I do want to see her cast Barrage on Svar and turn his RAV 6 shots into 3" poisonous AOE blasts. Speaking of Svar, he'll lay down the heavy firepower and make the enemy mages keep their heads low, and he'll do it all from stealth. Lastly, Tolin and Kirabell will direct the fire of the piercer company; trying to cope with fast threats or approaching hordes. Stubbdog also made the astute observation that I won't always be able to sit back and let the enemies of the dwarves break themselves upon my might shield wall , so other tactics are in order! Hopefully, in situations where I need to move and capture objectives, the main block of troops should be able to advance in reasonable order while the berserkers function as shock troops and the archers provide covering fire and deal with flanking attempts. And, hey, if all else fails, dwarves are natural sprinters, right? Alrighty! Now that we've got all that out of the way, here's the troops! The entire army: King Dolgrim the Steadfast (counts as King Thorgram Grimsteel): Svar Blackbolt (counts as Snorri Oathbreaker): Moril the Mender (counts as Ivar Silverfist): Tolin Deathbell (counts as Tohil Steadyhand): Kirabell Sureheart (counts as Kara Foehunter): Rana Red Wrath (counts as Margara Firetongue): Thanks for looking! 9 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
