Cheers!

Great stuff guys really enjoyed it!
I like you go down through the forum topics and discuss a little something from each section, interesting stuff. Would love to be involved and talk to some of you guys, just not sure I can make it happen.

Looking forward to the next one! Takes Hat off
Excellent job guys keep them coming (I just listened to the whole thing).
As discussed in this thread:

Happy

To recap.

I was first drawn to them when I added a few units my 3rd edition chaos army in 1990/91. I added 3 bazukas, and a tenderizer to my force. 3rd edition was swept away by the bland and very vanilla 4th. They only good thing about 4th was the introduction of CDs IMHO. So chaos dwarfs were out of my concern for about 2 years.

Then GW releases Cds as a real army in 1993! Now I liked the CD army list, but couldn’t stand the models. Market agreed with me and they tanked Wink So I skip this incarnation of the army.

The first real time that I seriously thought about Chaos Dwarfs was 1999ish with the original “Tale of 4 Gamers Series”, you know back when WD didn’t suck. The Skaven player was playing against Lee Garrett at a tourney and was pictured. You can barley make out his CD models. What got me thinking were the blurbs about his force being “highly adaptable” or some such. So I really went back and looked at my WDs featuring the army list. Which I had nearly all the ones from that time, at least the ones that featured the dawn of the CD army list.

What originally got me thinking was the hobgoblin wolfboyz. Having played against buddies fielding gobbo wolyboyz I knew how useful these guys were as one was a longtime Orc and Goblin player. Briefly thought about it , but once again shelved the idea.

Looking at the link it was indeed spring of 2002 when I again started thinking about CDs after finding the PDF of the list online. I started to once again think about them when I saw a unit promoted on the US webstore that same year that was basically taking chaos warrior heads and adding them to dwarf plastic bodies. From there my interest became piqued at that thought because it removed the biggest gripe I had about the army: Loved the army list, hated the models. Still nothing happened.

Flash forward to around 2004. I came across Hand of Hashut quite by accident and another site I can’t recall. I lurked for a while, but didn’t join. Demands of starting a family, first house, dog, etc, really put everything on the back burner in terms of Warhammer.

Skip to late August 2007. I had been looking at my Battle for Skull Pass box set that had been and the models that had been gathering dust since Christmas 2006. I vaguely remembered the Hand of Hashut site and found it again and was quickly floored by two members armies: Snotling (who isn’t right?) and Pulpers. I had never thought of using them to convert dwarfs into chaos dwarfs, so simple. Why didn’t I think of that before! Wink

Then something strange happened, I wandered onto CDO as well. At first I was surprised there were two forums for such an under-represented army, but quickly saw which site was better.  A few days later I joined (8-27-7). I was shocked at the community spirit here and quickly felt at home. Especially after trudging through asur.org Now uthulan.net for years, and not having much fun on it.

At the same time as I was rediscovering HoH and discovering CDO in late August I also found Xander’s You Tube guides and from there it all came together. One of my first purchases was a Hellcannon, right at the time they were being yanked off the shelf (only to be re-added a few weeks later). For another of my initial purchases I scored a Lammasu and rider NIP for its original price of $33 US, still shrink wrapped. I remembered exactly where it was and it had been sitting there for literally, years. I remember I must have picked that box up numerous times and each time set it back down only to buy something else. This time was the right time for me to embark on Chaos Dwarfs.

Now here I am with the best community anyone could ask for, and the best army bar none in terms of all of the Warhammer lists. The rest of the army lists don’t match up, ours however (warts and all) does.

So for me it was a very long and convoluted way to get to Chaos Dwarfs.
I'd like to know when the french version will be avaible? Big Grin

I didn"t understand everything, but I loved it anyway.
Yes, Excellent job guys Cheers!
great job guys, this might of been mentioned but is this a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly thing?

keep it up
hey i too would just like to say i realy enjoyed it, you have enspired me to go out and buy the grudgebearer book and to possibly make the deamon binding aspect a prominant theme in my army.

i also think a good part of the podcast was talking about things which have happened on the forum (such as Vintagephreak's classic chaos dwarfs). just think it would be cool to credit people for good work etc.

peace
Seriously. Can't get you chaps having too big of a head now can we Wink
why do you think cd's have big hats Tongue

Because the sculpters were on certain unnamed substances while sculpting?

This was a great idea, and a great podcast, by a great community. I am thinking about starting up with warhammer again, and things like this community and this podcast ensured that the race of choice in that case will most definately be chaos dwarfs!

Thanks a lot for simply being great!

If I had any slaves, all of you would have gotten some Wink
I was suprised Pyro was so soft spoken! Wander to the Marketplace posts. His posts are anything but that! Happy
to hide there big heads ofcours Tongue
An awsome name for the podcast might be "The Words of Hashut"

....or something like that.
im usually fairly good at naming things. i actually named my mates business and it has worked well lol.

i was thinking of it being a hats vs masks discussion in more modelling terms, and why people choose one type over another, rather than which ones are best/most legitimate etc
