The Hoodlings Tale - The trouble with stumpies
Approx. 18 months ago I posted my own thoughts on Dwarfs under 8th Ed which were resoundingly positive and that positive opinion still remains. The reason I moved away from them in recent times is because my poor Generalship saw me getting my arse kicked on a semi-regular basis which was getting depressing.

My thoughts on Dwarfs in 8th Edition (Aug 2011)
Suffice it to say after finishing of my Shermans I was lacking a new project and any idea about which part of painting backlog to attack next. But the reignition of the Dwarf vs. non-Dwarf WHFB grumblefest has prompted me to grab my unpainted Dwarfs out and they'll be next on the table.
Worst luck FOW wise I couldnt get a game in last night as the club lost out normal venue for the evening. But do I have one more practice game lined up next week against what Derek says will be an absolutely filthy Russian list before heading down to Wellington for NATCON on Friday morning.
