Really wanting a Fantasy army, and I love the design of these Fallen Dwarves
. My main problem is how should I field them?
Obviously if I only use the current line of Fallen Dwarves supplied by Anvil, I am going to be sticking with just Core Units, meaning not much heavy hitting units. This could easily change once IceSword finishes creating more Fallen Dwarf models
My main problem is how do/should I field the Crossbow regiment? If I go with the Dwarves army book, they'd be Quarrellers, but I have an old PDF produced by GW for Chaos Dwaves, who use a Blunderbuss.
Crossbows are in the WHFB Rulebook, so anyone who plays that can look it up. The Blunderbuss by my document does the following*:
A unit with Blunderbusses may move and fire in the same turn. When they shoot they project a "Fire zone" the width of the unit and 12" straight forward. Any model within this is a potential target and is hit on a 4+. The only exceptions are models behind extremely substantial cover such as a hill or a building. Models behind walls or in woods are hit as normal. Hits are resolved at S3 plus 1 per extra rank up to S5. Ranks count if at least 4 wide. A single character in the front rank will not effect the units' fire.
Unfortunately I don't have my copy of the WHFB rulebook, hence this thread.How does the Blunderbuss compare to the Crossbow?
Another thing to consider is a Chaos Dwarf Warrior unit starts with 10 models, Hand Weapon, Heavy Armour and Shield, with the Blunderbuss being a 3pt upgrade per model and replaces the shield. Only the Warrior unit can take Blunderbusses.*I am posting this for reference purposes, due to the document I am referencing not being widely known or shared.
