Leaked rules from latest WD Weekly
Ancestral Grudge: Dwarfs always have the Hatred (Orcs and Goblins) and Hatred (Skaven) special rules- this means any unit taken from Warhammer Orcs and Goblins or Skaven. To determine the level of bitterness the Dwarves feel towards other armies, after deployment but before Vanguard moves, roll a d6 and consult the following chart:
1-2 Personal Vendetta. The dwarf general has hatred special rule against the opposing army's general
3-4 Rancorous Resolve. All friendly character models with Ancestral Grudge special rule have the hatred special rule against all character models from the opposing army.
5-6 Seething Score to Settle. All friend models with the Ancestral Grudge special rule have the hatred special rule against all models in the enemy army.
Resolute: Models with this special rule have a +1 strength during a turn in which they charge into combat
Relentless: Units composed entirely of models with this special rule do not need to pass a leadership test in order to march, regardless of the proximity of enemy units.
Revenge Incarnate: Once per game, at the start of any Close Combat phase, Belegar can harness the power of his ancestors. For the remainder of the turn, he doubles his attacks characteristics.
Includes some details on changes to Core/Rare choices and on Hammerers.
Alternative miniatures Ideas
Prices for the latest Dwarf miniatures are now official and quite frankly at NZ$80 for a box of 10 Hammerers/Longbeards I am going to have to look elsewhere regardless of how amazing the miniatures are. I already have 40 of the older metal versions and buying 40 of the new ones at NZ$320 is just too prohibitive. Will have to get some of the new Ironbreakers though if the rules are good enough of course.
|Scibors Ducal Guard - 12 miniatures for 41 Euros|
Alternative miniatures wise there are still a lot of options out there for Dwarf players with two manufacturers in particular offering some great options Scibor Miniatures and Avatars of War. Luckily for NZ gamers you get buy products from both of these ranges through Slave to Painting (although not everything is available)
