Hurrah for Zharr-Naggrund!

Here we go with my first ever post, and, as usual, I'm making a rod for my own back.

"Hello again", says I; "Tale of # gamers, eh? Can I join in? For old times' sake?". So far, so good. Yes, I'm a pretty slow painter, but surely I can manage £25 worth of models a month? Then the hammer falls. "I'll make up a Chaos Dwarf force!" Doh!

Still, let's give this a shot. The last known army list for Chaos Dwarves is in the Ravening Hordes booklet, which dates back around 10 years or so ago. Likewise, the original CD minis (with big hats) have not been updated in even longer. So, I guess I'm going to have to use the good old "counts as" process with the goodie-two-shoes Dwarven list, and convert all of the models from the current range.

So, I don't have the book just yet, but I intend for my force to include:

Chaos Dwarf Warriors (Dwarf Warriors)
Chaos Dwarf Blunderbusses (Dwarf Thunderers)
Leader (Thane/Runesmith)
Death Rocket (Not sure about the nearest equivalent here. Either a Bolt Thrower or Organ Gun)
Chaos Dwarf Immortals (Ironbreakers)

If points allow, I will try to squeeze in a few of the other distinctive Chaos Dwarf Units, such as Bull Centaurs and Hobgoblins using Dogs of War unit rules, but there's no point in worrying about them just yet...

Well, I guess I'd better feed the slaves in preparation for this momentous task.
