So... the advent of the new Dwarf FAQ has rendered my 7th ed Chaos Dwarf army unplayable at 2K...
mainly due to the expulsion of DoW from my already small list...
I've used my BCs as DoW heavy cav since the demise of RH...
it was an anvil/machine gunline with suprise cav for kicks... in the face...

So I am now making a foray into the use of the allies rules to try to represent CDs...
While I'm not sold on it entirely... I believe the most logical choice is Dwarfs/O&G...
however Dwarfs/BoC is also a possibility... I just happen to have some orc models lying around and no beasts...

So i'm thinking:

Runelord: Balance (Astragoth)
Thane: BSB, Gromril (Conversion, like to keep it)
(Hob)goblin Shaman: Sneaky Stealin', Chariot w/ extra crew and wolf (have some work to do here)

34 Dwarf Warriors: FC, GW (Thane in here)
20 Thunderers: FC, Shields (Runelord in here)
35 Orc Boyz: FC
7 Wolfboyz: Musician

Cannon: Forging (Death Rocket)
Grudgebearer: Accuracy, Penetrating (Earthshaker)
8 Boar Boyz: FC (this is what my BCs have been reduced to)
2 Spear Chukkas

2K total (1250 Dwarfs/750 O&G)

Thinking I'll run everything 7 wide... except the BCs (boar boyz) who'll be 8 wide...
Makes it hard to maneuver... but everyone will have this problem I suppose..

Anyway I'm pretty sure I have magic defense stuffed...
but I'd be interested in comments on the "8thed-ness" of this list...
as well as the concept for representing CDs in general...

Interesting there are no black orcs or shamans, would have thought they would be in for fluff
With 8th-ed-ness, my only critisism is that the points values are too low. 2.5-3k seems to be the hinted new standard game size. Well thats what we will be playing in our store, not sure about where you are. Mainly so we can duplicate rare and special and rare mpore, and so whe can have more charecter flexibility

I would make a 3k list with some black orcs, a lv.4 for channeling dispel, and way more war machines. More cannons, spear chukkas and grudge throwers, maybe a flamestorm would be nice aswell

just some suggestions

well I've never really played black orcs... well not since 6th when they could get a S7 champ...
I've always justified it fluffwise as my general simply doesn't trust their usage...
Blorcs would be a controversial choice in most CD armies...
tho an earlier version of this list did have had a Blorc Boss in chariot...
Really I'm more bothered fluffwise at the lack of (hob)goblin blocks... but they kinda suck... so I'm not worried...

I'm pretty sure I don't want to make a go of it for a magic phase...
this could be because I've been playing the standard dwarf list...
but I think I'll just continue to max magic defense... and have a non phase...

yeah adding 1K would involve adding more machines...
but flame cannons got slashed pretty bad with the nerf bat in the FAQ...
