Dear Dwarfs,


There are some new rumors on a Duardin release after the ogors release in september.

 

Specifically on various sources in the last week were posted the following information:

 

  • The Duardin themselves have remained a mystery but are said to be coming later this year, 2016. It’s been dead quiet on the Duardin front, but at long last some tidbits are working their way out.
  • Duardin have a completely different aesthetic than the Fyreslayers They are also somewhat different from the aesthetic of the old WFB Dwarfs. They are heavily steampunk inspired (even more than some earlier designs such as the newer Gyrocopters), so look for lots of pipes and gears.

I am not too fond on steampunk dwarf but I really like gyrobombers and irondrakes design, so I hope we will get something along these lines.

 

 

What do you think about the possible upcoming release? Let's speculate!

So... Titan Forge Metalbeards:lol2: Though I'll probably end up preferring the GW aesthetic.

 

I wonder which (if any) of the 2014 kits will get brought over.

Any word on whether any of the remaining sculpts are at risk?

Golems might be interesting. If GW follows their usual pattern, every army has their big money-sucking, wallet-draining centerpiece model, and the Fyreslayers already have a dragon with a naked dwarf on top. If not a golem, perhaps some sort of large mecha. It would be cool if they had some sort of steam-powered mount, but now I'm wishlisting.

I'm actually ok with big expensive models. It's the weedy little guys at $40 USD for 5 that I can't stand.

At eight bucks a dwarf, they'd better be pewter Marauder Miniatures dwarfs. I'll look at the steamheads, and may even buy some, but all they'll ever be is additional troops to supplement my metal miniatures.

I wonder with the mention of being more steampunk in ascetic that it won't be a purely duardin release but might be an Ironweld Arsenal release

I'm hoping that's the case. I'll probably buy whatever it is regardless but of all the new fluff the Ironweld Arsenal intrigues me the most.

Rumours about steamhead duardins are quite old but nothing is yet certain, even in the November WD there is no clue. But chances are we will get new dwarves during this year, of course.

From what I've read, we are due our update this month. At this point, all I'm looking for is a repackaging of the newer models with better rules, some new Lord/Heroes models, our own book, and a Monstrous Creature (love the Fryslayers Salamander but hate the angry bearded baby in diapers that's riding it).

Maybe then I can shelve my Chaos army for a bit and get back to My Dwarves..
