Yeah we need more Chaos Dwarfs!

Right now your getting outnumbered by the number of Mortals and are going to get positively creamed if Hashut doesnt make more of a presence!! I want to see a good dirty fight Cheers!

Perhaps if people better understood the requirements, we would see some more participation.

Once signed up, how do you contribute?  Can you only play other registrants?  Can you play against any Chaos army?  How many games do you have to play?

I'd be interested to know these things, and I think others would as well.

As Xander says, I think people are somewhat hesitant here because very few of us have taken part in something like this before.

Chaos Dwarfs get neglected from most campaigns, so unfortunately we as players don't often get experience of these things.

I be there, I'm not square!


Madness? THIS IS... Well, maybe it isn't Sparta, but it's still pretty awesome.
Would you kindly comment on my Warhammer Armies: Chaos Dwarfs?

Even if I could we can play any chaos player, I have no chaos players near me with which to have a nice fight with, so I'd be out anyway.  Kinda stinks.


Praise Hashut!Respect to the Hat!

There is only one other Chaos player in our group, and he doesn't want to play against my Chaos Dwarfs again anytime soon - after what I did to his army in our last battle. Happy

Aye, I pretty much slaughtered him, thanks to some well-placed Earthshaker shots and a Taurus that was in really good shape. My Dawi Zharr in turn were defeated pretty badly by Woodelfs in the game a week after.

RE: The Dark Reckoning Campaignthe bearer 03-11-2008

Why Fight:

Atop the furnaces of the great ziggurats of Zharr Naggrund the High Priest Astragoth was carried atop a grand shield of severed hands strewn together with bone and daemonic sinew by four Bull Centaurs.
Fire streamed behind him, a grand furnace of yellow and red beneath a blazing white centre. There the High Priest was utterly still; his petrified body was broken only by red blinking eyes of dark and insane hatred. His power had wanned over the years as the transformation from flesh to stone was nearly complete. No longer could Astragoth even speak, a quire of lesser sorcerers reiterated his words in unison as if to speak with one tongue.

To Astragoth he knew the vie for power was already on his door step. The sorcerer kin had dwindled in number but their power grew with every year and their eyes were fixated on his downfall. It seemed like more than three lifetimes he had ruled as the most powerful and most old. But where his power was diminishing along with his physical form, his thirst for power was not – in fact it had grown.

To perpetuate the lie of his own power, the High Priest was garbed in the most elaborate armour. Gold plates shimmered among a sea of blood red and obsidian plates as a gruesome mask of polished bronze covered his face. Through diabolic dealings with the dark powers of Hashut, Astragoth discovered a way to turn back this humiliating disease and now it was all he thought about, it consumed him. What last remnants of communication he had left, Astragoth created the Obsidian Chalice, a device that could capture the very essence of a living entity, turning it into an elixir of immortality.

Looking down from the great ziggurat a grand army was assembled. War machines of metal and daemon lined the horizon as artillery trains of a limitless supply of weapons and ammunition followed behind. There was a massive invasion planned, a vicious attack that would leave its prey begging for mercy. Astragoth had found what he was looking for, the power to revive himself, restore himself to his former glory and live forever as the true ruler of all the Chaos Dwarfs.
In front of him, the Obsidian Chalice was firmly seated. When the time came and the Twin of Destruction was summoned forth – Astragoth would be ready.

RE: The Dark Reckoning Campaignthe bearer 03-11-2008

In this campaign you submit a battle via an online form.

You can submit one battle per day in any of the locations on the map.

You dont actually need to play any games of Warhammer because its all electronic. By submitting a battle you are letting us know your presence on the battlefield and your efforts.

You can find out all the rules about competing in the campaign here: http://z4.invisionfree.com/cotec/index.p...topic=3495 it is a downloadabe pdf so you can read it as your leisure.

RE: The Dark Reckoning CampaignDARKTROOPER 03-11-2008

is there a particular region we are going to focus on in order to maximize or are we just going to go gung-ho and attack everywhere?

RE: The Dark Reckoning CampaignGrimstonefire 03-14-2008

2 DAYS LEFT FOR REGISTRATION!

Join the cause and fight for the glory of CDO.  As the Bearer has said, you dont actually need to play any games of Warhammer because its all electronic, so it wouldn't take long each day to enter a result. The Obsidian Chalice will wait for no DZ.

@Darktrooper
Once the period for registration closes, we can discuss amongst ourselves where best to attack.  We will be few in number so we need to hit as hard as we can in one place, like the hammer strike that crushes our enemies.

Better to achieve victory in one location than not much all over.
