View Full Version : Question to those with the dwarf army book.

In the section about master engineers, the text says that they are first and foremost a warrior. Why does it say that? They know how to fight, sure, but their main job is to do engineery stuff.

Also, can dwarven engineers use the reroll rune when firing a bolt thrower, for example?

Every Dwarf is a warrior first and foremost to be able to defend the hold. And no you cannot use the rune to reroll a bolt thrower shot because he doesnt actually fire it (so they say) he just aims it and lets his crew pull the trigger apparently.

Ah, ok thanks.

But all dwarfs don't practice combat training more than anything else, right? I mean his profession is firstly an engineer, isn't it?

Military engineering. Not civil engineering, or something. I guess. :eyebrows:

Actually from what I understand they can do both. The example I am thinking of is in the Grudgebearer book when the build a brewery.

A brewery would be considered a military instillation for the Dwarves i think

Oh yeah, oh yeah.....THAT is very true.

Gee, I guess that means myself and most of my opponents are dwarves. We, we, we.....don't operate a brewery....we just test taste the stuff. I know, I know,,,,,it only takes one sip to test it. But, but....it's a bad thing to waste the rest of the bottle after the taste test:D

Have an engineer model (or two) ready to plop into a roster. Don't forget the values of Runesmiths.

Yes, and the rest of the case just looks wrong with one bottle missing, so.....

And of course you can't taste test or sip a keg.
On the Engineer, what model do you use as an ordinary Engineer. Scratch build one, or use the ME mini?

well the dwarf enginer is better than any other enginer duhhh so he be classified as a warrior because he is so good at what he dose he knows every thing so he should know some combat moves as well TO PROTECT THE WAR MACHIEN!!!!
