Haha I have no intention of denying the Old World! I have a Chaos Dwarf army, there's only one city these boys are marching from. But the God Wars of Mantica are a very nice touch, so I'm mentally trying to transplant the Mythology onto what we know and love (and mourn).

No transplanting! EVERYTHING MUST STAY THE SAME. EVEN THE BITS THAT DON'T MAKE SENSE OR CONTRADICT THE OTHER BITS. ALSO IF YOU USE THINGS FROM THE WRONG WARHAMMER ERA I WON'T LIKE IT.

So there.

Maybe a little splice?

Are you telling me that I can't use the Varangur list to do a Sigmar and the Unberogen tribe army?

Or Nids as Nightstalkers?

Or Game of Thrones Kingdoms of Men?

Or Lord of the Rings Goblins?

Or a Magnus the Pious Crusade?

Fascist.

You can, but I won't like it. Although who would be your opponents then?

Kieron wrote:Or Nids as Nightstalkers?
I'm not really sure what would be going on there. I don't really get what the Nightstalkers are meant to be.

Kieron wrote:Or Game of Thrones Kingdoms of Men?
Actually fine so long as you make up some area of the Warhammer World for them to be from. Themed armies are ok, so long as I approve the theme.

Kieron wrote:Or Lord of the Rings Goblins?
Also fine, see above (and one I've considered as I have that Hobbit set).

Kieron wrote:Or a Magnus the Pious Crusade?
That might actually be quite cool.

You say that like it's a bad thing. Look at my Empire army, you get black uniforms and conformity. It's great!

Woo hoo! You'll all be pleased to know that on searching my bits boxes I've found another organ gun and 2 more cannons!

Boom! Bang!

134 Re: Kings of War on Thu Feb 25, 2016 3:31 am

Excellent! How many guns can you manage in total then?

I can do:

3 cannon
2 mortars
2 volley guns (although one needs painting)
1 rocket launcher (which I think I might count as a ballista. I know that sounds weird but the rules effects seem right).

8 guns! BOOM.

135 Re: Kings of War on Thu Feb 25, 2016 3:49 am

4 cannon
2 organ gun
1 rock lobbed
1 flame cannon
2 bolt throwers

But 2 of the cannon are from the battle for skull pass set and are a bit small so may end up in a scenary piece. Not sure I'd ever need or want 4 cannons

One of them might hit something if you had four...

137 Re: Kings of War on Thu Feb 25, 2016 8:30 am

Thats true. They are a bit small though. They look silly next to the others!

Although it would be funny taking out a unit with one of them...

Or I could put them both on one base!

Could be unit fillers for thunderererers?

What about both on one base, harnessed together, with a steam wagon pushing them as a Steel Behemoth?

140 Re: Kings of War on Thu Feb 25, 2016 10:13 am

Hmm. Thats possible. I like the idea of having a proper dwarf tank though!

I think they may end up on 1 base together to count as a single cannon.

141 Re: Kings of War on Thu Feb 25, 2016 9:02 pm

I feel like a dwarf tank ought to look like the ironclad things from Man'o'War/Dreadfleet. Those look dwarfy.

142 Re: Kings of War on Thu Feb 25, 2016 9:23 pm

How small are they? Could you have a dwarf tank that sort of has a deck, and the guns are on top?

Or even two dwarf tanks?

Think I'm going for 2 on a base like a small battery!

Should really paint, but I'm free tonight if anyone wants to play at mine? 1k, from after 8

Sorry, can't. Helen and I haven't actually seen each other this week due to work stuff.

On the cannons front, Pete, have a read of this:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-barreled_cannon

You could model them with a chain running between the barrels as if their going to fire simultaneously to mow down the enemy.

I seem to remember double barreled cannons used to explode a lot because they were hard to cast. Although obviously dwarfs might have fixed that.

It's more of a problem that if there's even the slightest difference in when the ignite, the first shot swings round and hits the crew!

I like how that wikipedia article says "the test was a failure" but the inventor was like "yep, that's all gone brilliantly, my gun is awesome".
