Hi there everyone,
This is my first post on this forum, so I think I should introduce myself. I am an old (well not that old, but in my warhammer community old) gamer, who have been out of the hobby for the last couple of years. Finally time allows me to return, and I have descided on starting a new army. My primary army have been the High elfs (elgis, I know), but with the release of the new Dwarfs I have descided to move over to the beard side.
Beeing new to the dwarf army and only occasionally played some games with the current edition ruleset I will probably look like a complete noob. But with some time, and hopefully some help from you guys, I hope I will be getting up to speed.
So, with introduction out of the way, it is time to move over to the topic.
Playing a static dwarf gunline is not something for me. I want to play an army that is fun for both players, movable, yet hard, not waac, but tough enough to win at least half my games - and I really love the idea of fast moving, steamfireing gyrocopters.
So, do any of you have any experience running a Dwarf airforce list? I am thinking 4-6 gyrocopters and 1-2 gyrobombers. I have been thinking a bit on combining those fast moving elements with a strollaz-list, but maby those two elements contradicts eachother. With a strollaz list my infantry are eager to see combat as soon as possible, giving my gyrocopters less time fireing at the enemy. Maybe a combined armes list would be better? What are your experience?
And finally, what does the fluff says about mass gyro armies? Are some clans/holds more likely to field mass gyros than others?
Thanks for all help in advance!
