Depending on how many shots they get and their point cost, it may not be a bad thing.

If they get runes they might also get an Engineer for bonus BS.

They do. Runes to give +1 to hit and Engineers for better BS!

Grimm Burlockson is BS5!

Gyrobomber does not do d3 wounds to everything under The blast. Its just under the hole as a stonen thrower.

BS based organ gun means it has to be cheap or have really good special rules to be even be considered. About 5-6d6 if you hit on 5+ is required to get the same average as now. That wont happen. :)

Runes! By the grace of the ancestors! By Grungis beard! Best news I've heard all release! And that runelord...I love it. Ironbreakers look pretty awesome as well, although with 40 already I may have to wait and build them as Irondragons first. Not sure about the colour scheme for the gyros so I'll reserve judgement until I see some other pics, but I'm feeling they should look pretty good.

 

As for rules, the gyrobomber looks nasty - it may only be S3 (6), but it uses the large template, has amour piercing and does D3 wounds, plus it can scatter onto a new target (although 'only' with a small template) and if it misfires it only has a 3.7% chance of being killed (if on 3 wounds). And for 125 points? Not bad I'd say. Plus, if that's 125 points, looks like the gyro's probably going to be seeing a decent points reduction (unless it really does have a cannon).

What's that 'Superior Volley' special rule under Grimm say? If i had to guess, something like rerolling missed to hit rolls.

He's a pretty sexy buffer hero for war machines or ranged units. Wish i could see his cost as well. (EDIT: 165 points according to the updated blog post, nice).

So, the engineer is S6 base, and his weapon is armor piercing. That guy us a freaking badass war machine guard. Given all he does...wow. Runes, rune lords, crazy large pie plates. My friends are gonna hate me, lol. Also, don't ignore the 2d6 increase in hand gun and crossbow range. The engineer is absolutely brutal.

This just made my day! Rune system, Engineer buffs, new gyrocopters, stacking runes, runes on an organ gun... I am indeed impressed!

Depends on it's range and the BS of the crew, which is probably BS3. Hopefully that dwarf crafted rule comes into play for +1 hit? Adding a +1 hit or strength rune will also make it nice.

Organ Gun has always been one of my favorites. I'll probably find a way to use it just for aesthetic reasons.

Ok guys, guess I wont to be taking cannons...lulz..

Also, looks like even the big model is on a 40mm base, so our old gyros will do until they are replaced.

Burlocksson looks like he could make a gunline viable by himself. As much as I want to use new tactics...
