EFTW – Shiny New Choad Dwarfs

If you haven’t dropped by the Forgeworld website lately, you really should. Not only are they releasing more Empire stuff (ie. the first good looking state troops in years), they have finally launched their Chaos Dwarf range. Up first are the Infernal Guard with hw/shield and Fireglaives. They also have a command set and the Iron Daemon, the engine of the locomotive of war machine death that they’ll be adding to once Tamurkhan: Throne of Chaos is fully released.

Nasty looking buggers. Would love to paint these guys up!

Oh, and yes I am aware that I spelled Chaos Dwarf wrong in the title. My phone tried to auto correct Chaos Dwarf to “Choad Dwarf” when I was telling my buddy Lange about the new models on the website. The term amuses me greatly so I will keep using it from time to time ๐Ÿ˜€

So much cooler than the plastic GW Dwarfs...

I can only assume Blunderbusses are to come.

If you like unholy amounts of S7 impact hits and Thunderstomps, this is the unit for you.

I can’t wait to see what they come out with next for this range (Bull Centaurs plz!). These models have an incredible amount of detail, and they appear to have the sinister/downright f*cking evil atmosphere made famous by the Confrontation Mid Nor Dwarves. And the best part? The prices really aren’t that terrible. With current exchange rates, you can get a set of 10 of these new infantry for about $55, which is just a smidge more than we end up paying for Greatswords/Tomb Guard/equivalent boxes right now. I don’t mind paying a bit extra when they look this incredibly badass.

The odds are good that I will be picking up a couple units of these guys and painting them in Tzeentch colors. Probably 20 with hand weapon/shield and a smaller unit of missile troops. Add in a war machine as a stand-in for a second Hellcannon. If Bull Centaurs come out looking totally amazing, they will become Dragon Ogres. They would add some desparately needed variety to my Warriors of Chaos army and I already have some ideas for how to paint them. If you read the little blurb about painting the iridescent colors on Tomb King scarabs, then you’ll have an idea for what I have in mind on their armor. Hopefully it looks half as good as it does in my head!

Keep it up Forgeworld/Warhammer Forge, you have captured the interest of a lot of gamers. Not to mention the rabid Chaos Dwarf fans that have been without models to buy for like a decade… I think you might be able to sell some minis to them ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Very nice ๐Ÿ™‚ What rules would these be used for (like, are they a proxy for something in a Chaos WFB army?)

  2. Forgeworld is making a campaign book for Fantasy, like they have done for 40k. In that book, they will include a Chaos Dwarf armylist. They appear to have very similar statlines and rules to regular Dwarfs, but they will have crazy daemon war engines, some monsters like Bull Centaurs and Taurus, and possibly some Hobgoblin/Black Orc slaves too.

    I would be using these guys as stand-ins for Chaos Warriors probably. And the big Iron Daemon would be a neat Hellcannon substitute.

  3. Looking at it again, I agree that thing looks great as a hellcannon
