Time to discuss exactly what we think of Border Town Burning's list as it gets ready for release!

Current Draft of the Chaos Dwarfs Warband

If you haven't seen Vexxus' Warband, take a look.


Also, check out some of the pics on the gallery on their web site.


They posted this preview video today!

Bull Centaurs don't really seem to fit into this environment. You can't have everything from the actual army in a Mordheim warband, after all. I'd prefer rules that used the Hero/Henchman divide to depict the way slavery works: all the Chaos Dwarfs should be Heroes, and all the Henchmen should be various types of Greenskin. It looks like an attempt has been made to avoid confusion by just making it "Dwarfs only", while still keeping slavery as the focus of the background, which is perhaps a tad schizophrenic.

RE: Border Town Burning's Chaos Dwarf WarbandVexxus 08-02-2008

I really enjoyed the feel of this list, and I thought it remained true to many of the ideals we have for CD's here on the forums. As HB said in CD Radio this round, I like the "Black Dwarfs" name especially since they still call the henchman a Chaos Dwarf.

I definitely got into this list, and I think the balancing seems on par with many of the other lists they have available for viewing. My only criticisms would be that quantity rather than quality seems to be important in gameplay, and as such when I went ahead and made up warband lists and toyed with numbers, I couldn't put the armour and such that I wanted, due to gold costs.  I would have liked to see it a bit tighter race between the two strategies, but all in all I am really amazed by the professional manner that BTB has presented the warband.

The idea for a prison wagon is great, and its unfortunate that I couldn't make one, especially before the AC2 deadline haha. Maybe in the future, who knows.

I was impressed to the point where I would love to order, or have made, a complete Border Town Burning supplement bound book. I plan to make at least one more warband, it is just so hard to choose!

Thommy H, I get the impression that it's more about them trying to get some slaves (and warpstone), rather than fighting alongside them in an Imperial town, for the sake of fighting there... Strange that people keep saying quantity over quality as my (smaller) Black dwarf warband pwned Sousonou's Dark Elf warband (with just about half of mine getting involved)...

I shall (time permitting) post up my Black Dwarfs warband blog soon!

This looks like the same list that was done from WolfArmory (?) when Mordheim first came out, with a couple of modifications.  I've played the first list for years, and loved it.  Vrakkar and Zhorvan were originally my CD warband captains.

Sorry for necroing this thread but I want to quickly inform you that the full Border Town Burning supplement has just been released. You can download it from the website: http://bordertownburning.de.vu/

Thanks again for all the support! Of course the Black Dwarfs and CDO got a fair bit of representation.


Check out the Border Town Burning Mordheim supplement featuring the Black Dwarfs warband!
