RE: Chaos Dwarf SlayerThommy H 07-25-2009

I guess I just don't really get why Chaos Dwarfs need a Slayer Cult too. It's something uniquely Dwarfish, and Bill King had a great explanation for it on his website that I read (long story short: there are fewer Dwarf women than men, so there needs to be a way for a percentage of young Dwarf males to remove themselves from society without dishonouring the clan, so they've invented this concept of a berserker cult to give them something to do).

I think the Slayers are a great concept for Dwarfs - the idea of a society that's so obsessed with honour and standing that the only way to atone for some minor social infraction (by human standards) is to give your life up to a demented warrior ideal is pretty compelling. I don't think Chaos Dwarfs need that though. I don't think it fits their society as well, because they don't live in close-knit clans deep underground: they live in a giant city in the midst of an industrial hellscape, surrounded by millions of slaves they can bully. I don't know if Chaos Dwarfs are declining like Dwarfs are, but I've never read anything (canon) to suggest it. I don't think they need to be so stringent about honour and social norms.

And, really, the whole reason everyone wants there to be Chaos Dwarf Slayers is so they can use Dwarf Slayer figures in their army Tongue

But I have 30+ Slayers... Tongue Wink

As Thommy says, I just wanna be able to use them. But it doesn't necessarily have to be the exact same mechanic behind it with CDs.

But I wasn't even trying to get them! I don't play with Dwarfs. I just somehow have ended up with them. It is weird. If I didn't know better I'd think they were breeding...

And Kera if I'd be in a barfight I'd rather have my Ogre bodyguard. Yes, I have one, or the equivalent of! Tough he'd be much more likely to be the one who started it in the first place.

Experimental


Chaos Dwarf Foresaker
[/u]

Unlike the slayers of there weaker kin the Chaos Dwarf Foresaker do not seek their death to atone for some failure, They seek glory and assension to a a greater form. taking the aspect fo the bull to there hearts these innitiates burn the symbol of hashut into there chests arms and foreheads. This serves to bring fire to the souls of themselvs and will be the fire that burns there rebirth.

To many of the Chaos Dwarf Foresaken it is important that their rebirth be as painfull and excruciating as they possibly can make it often adding special minerals and chemicals to there burning arms chests and foreheads when they are anionted by the preist that performs the right of fury.

The preist or accolite then tatto's the name of the Chaos Dwarf Foresaken onto the high preist of the temple of hashut and forever is entrusted to the keeping of the temples the Chaos Dwarf Foresaken will then hope to one day asscend to a magma form which not many have ever acheived

Chaos Dwarf Foresaken look much alike there weaker kin a distinctive and unusual haircut of black laced dreadlocks and black etched burn marks in there flesh filled over by countless layers of oil and sinders from the temple fires of hashut. Before taking up his Scimitar of Falchion

immune to psycology; the Chaos Dwarf Foresaken is practicaly unstopable and unbreakable. the Chaos Dwarf Foresaken will hold to the last and can never retreat or fall back.

Bull charge: On charge there is not much that can come close to a chaos dwarf forsaken a regiment of foresaken will deal impact hits upon the charge equivelent to a chariot if there number is greater than 4, For every 4 chaos dwarf forsaken an extra dice of impact hits will be added

Doombringer ; Such is the fury and violence that a Chaos Dwarf Foresaken can deal a Chaos Dwarf Foresaken can deal a killing blow
