Dwarf Anvil of Doom & where are the Dwarf rumours.

In preparation for next months 4000pt Ruination tournament I thought Id get my Anvil of Doom all painted up and ready to go.  It looks better in real life as for some reason the Runelord looks like he is asleep in the photos?  Guards and Runelord are all pinned onto base so they can't be removed.

Also curious about one thing... where are the rumours and leaks regarding the upcoming Dwarf army book release supposedly timed for January/February 2014.  With practically all of the other new 8th Edition army books we had a plethora of hints and leaks but for Dwarfs nothing except a small list of possible new model kits.  That list was

OrcCrusher / Tunneler (combo kit)
Runic Anvil / War Altar (combo box)
Gyrocopter Squadron Box
Thunderers / Crossbowmen / Dwarf Warriors Box (10)
Hammerers / Ironbreaker Box
Matadors???  / Brotherhood of Grimmir Box
Longbeards  / Rangers Box

Starting to wonder if we'll get a new book at all.  Painting up the Anvil I did wonder if it would get some rule changes to make it more useful in 8th Edition. Something along the lines of allowing it to rebound dispelled hex/direct damage spells back at enemy casters, steal the effects of enemy augment spells and/or force enemy casters whose spells are dispelled to miscast.

Nice hot iron effect... Riding the rollercoaster of the GW rumour mill! Interesting times no doubt!

Nice Paint-job. Almost makes me want to paint that un-built anvil sitting in my pile of shame. Over-priced in 2400 game, banned in tournaments, so I've had no volition to go beyond the base coating as yet. Your build is inspirational though! (Aside LOL:The spambot screener just came up as 482 u ghouls)

Your anvil looks quite good; nice work!

P.D.: Matadores = Slayers

Thanks for the feedback guys appreciate it.

@ Herman - I am hoping that the AoD becomes more useable at all levels. Taking Thorek to the 4000pt event as no comp.

@ Dark Painter - hmmm cheers for that, hopefully they're better than the AoW versions.
