Tuomas Pirinen's The Immortals Full Flufftvandyke 08-06-2009

THE IMMORTALS

The Immortals are the hand-picked warriors of the Chaos Dwarf House Hargan.  Since the time immemorial the thousand finest warriors of House Hargan have fought together as a single regiment.  Place amongst Immortals is a much sought-after honour amongst the warriors.  Only by performing an exeptional act of prowess on the battlefield will a young Chaos Dwarf warrior win his right to stand amongst the Immortals.  The number of warriors in the immortal regiment always stays the same.  Any casualties are always replenished after battle.  This is where the name immortal is derived from, as the regiment always stays at full strength during a campaign no matter how many are slain.  All the Chaos Dwarf warriors who have served with the Immortals will have their name carved in the obsidian pillar in the Temple of Hahut.  Thus his name will live forever and they will find favour in they eyes of Hashut.  The armour of the Immortals is especially thick, made from the iron ore of the Mountains of Mourn.  The metallic masks of the Immortals are frightening in the extreme.  In battle they wield hammers of black iron and carry shields decorated with the iron rune of House Hargain.

PROFILE
M 3, WS 5, BS 3, S 4, T 4, W 1, I 3, A 1, LD 9

0-1 Unit of Immortals - 15 Points per model

SPECIAL RULES

UNSTOPPABLE ASSAULT
The rank bonus of the Immortals is not negated by enemy charging on their flank or rear, though the usual +1/+2 bonus still applies.  Being the masters of assault, the Immortals also ignore defended obstacles.  Their opponents gain no bonuses for defending a wall, rampart, or other obstacle.

Interesting. Not a million miles away from my (and many others') conception of the Immortals.

Yeah, these were obviously modelled after the Persian Empire's Immortals made famous by the battle of Thermopylae.

had he stuck around longer, there would have been a chaos dwarf army... or rather an updated one (an official one) not a white dwarf presents army..

RE: Tuomas Pirinen's The Immortals Full Flufftvandyke 08-06-2009

I just figured with all the effort that was being put into the Indy GT list that perhaps there'd be some interest in some of the added gems that were put into the CD book he was working on back in 1999.  This book (that was in the playtesting stage) had some tweeks that made it into ravening hordes (such as Blunderbuss being able to move and shoot).  Prior to that, they couldn't.  Tuomas actually spent quite a bit of time with the Ravening Hordes list knowing it may have to be viable for a while.  He had to put the real book on hold due to his work on 6th edition.  These are the new unit types (including the Alchemagi character) that would surely have came into being had he not left GW.

Hopefully if we get a new AB Immortals will be in it.  Every fan list you see seems to have something along these lines.
