SHORT INTRODUCTION

The Dwellars are dwarfs (not squats though squats exist in their codex.)They are not part or a different race that looks like them, but dwarfs. They are no longer called that do to the 40k universe nearly destroying them. For the last 5 thousand years they have done nothing but prepare for a retaliation that would shake the very foundations of the verse and cement their place and people as permanent members of the stars.
To accomplish this they have made two armies within their own people.
The Planet Crackers, meant to go to a planet and destroy armies as well as capture and enslave those who do not bare arms or attempt to oppose them. After a succesfull mission the Planet Crackers eat hearty meals for several days, make party, drink, indulge, and then go to another planet a month later after wounds are healed and numbers are replenished from the home worlds.
The Protectorate, the second and true leading army of the Dwellars, meant to defend the conquered worlds and start new homes among them. Converting the captured to become their people and join their ranks, using Serizian and the Psychic abilities of their priests to awe the commoners and a false show of kindness. Knowing one day they will merely defend their own system, ignoring the Planet Crackers, as they see them as neccessary they do not admire the nature of the beasts they have created. The war hungry Dwellars the Planet Crackers are a huge contrast to the clever and ever watchful Protectorate, but they need eachother, they are brethren and as long as the Planet Crackers continue to be succesful, the Protectorate will continue to supply them with nourishment, resources, and reinforcements.
Squats are a small part of the Dwellars they are not the Dwellars. Though the Imperium does not believe this nor would the Imperium support the notion that the 'Gods' of the Dwellars were in fact Gods at all. The homes of the Dwellars are inside left for dead planets over the years of war and strife. Planets no longer looked at by any race other than the burrowing Tyranids which the Dwellar have had continuos combat with in their home worlds caves. Recently, what looked like dead mountains on the homeworlds of these planets, shook off rock and dirt and launched thousands of large ships with Protectorate and Planet Crackers, invading the systems around them, determined to conquer all planets that any one of their race once called home.
Their main enemies are Chaos Space marines, Imperials, Space Marines, Orks, Tyranids and Demons. At the rate of which the Planet Crackers seem to be enjoying war however, the Protectorate will soon find they have angered the wrath of an entire system and let lose dogs which can not be re-leashed. Dwellars enter the fray, of 40k. (Hopefully*)

“Well, what do you carry the gun for if you’re just going to waste bullets?” Timer reloads his Boomer as Forling fires his Shrapper.
“I may ‘ne be a good shot Timer, but I don’t miss much from this close up with my hammer,” Forling continues to fire.
“All the enemies are good and far away so what the hell does that…” Timer looks up to see Forling giving him an angry stare. “Oh, yea, ok, um, good shooting.”

Um... I think the wargear looks ok, but we need to see who can take what, or it's almost all meaning less (other than you have wargear for units that don't exist)
for example, if you have that Lekros Scimitar, but give it to a WS1 guy its terrible (doubt this is the case, I'm just an example here)

Cool looking stuff. Pretty even, as far as points cost and weaponry is concerned. A whole heapin' helpin' of choice and customizability here, too.

I think something that might be a good idea would be to look at the way the codices are set up, with a one-page fluffy description of the unit, followed by its special rules, wargear and suchnot. If you can, find someone to do some concept art, or even do some yourself. You definitely want to get some of the wargear and at least a single type of troop exemplified; it'd be a lot easier to get a good idea of the 'theme' of the army that way. (Like how the Tau are shooty space communists, the 'nids are giant bugs of eat-anything, Necrons are undead killing machines, Orks are boisterous killing machines with more enthusiasm than skill, Marines are the Best of the Best of the Few and the Alive, IG are 'without number', etc, etc.)

I guess just some general fluff would be nice, too.

What exactly are they? Xenos? Heretics?

How does the army play best? Are they an assault-themed race, or more shooty?

What kind of tech do they use? Hyper-advanced, like the Tau, Industrial punk like the Orks, Biological like the 'nids, unkowable like the 'crons, ancient relics like the Imperium? Or do they use some sort of Steampunk/Industrial/Bamboo-tech fusion? Iron Warriors type, like the original Squats? Etc, etc.

Great thought's been put into the balance of these rules, though, that's obvious.

GENERATION 8: The first time you see this, copy and paste it into your sig and add 1 to the number after generation. Consider it a social experiment.

Thanks for the thoughts. Definately valid ideas. I am finishing up the fluff for all the unit choices you see before you, I hadn't even thought about how I didn't post a whole lot of fluff particularly pertaining to the Planet Cracker army choice of the Dwellars or the Dwellars as are themselves. So I will post a short follow-up of the Dwellar homeworld Aulin, where the Planet Crackers leader Forling was stationed before their first test launch.

As far as the army being assault or shooty, the play here is, they can be both, but they can't be both without being in the range of fire. They have only 4 weapons that are 48" in range, and only one special weapon on The Massacre, that is 72". So it's up to the player to decide how he wants to conquer. I would say try to get more assaulting in with the Planet Crackers. The Guardians will be a more balanced we can shoot army, but the Planet Crackers do have The Boom Squad, which is one of my favorite squads.

Most of the Dwellar are Planet Crackers. So there aren't as many Guardians and it shouldn't get to convulxed. You also have to take a Guardian HQ to field Guardians or a Planet Cracker HQ to field Planet Crackers. With the exception of a few HQ choices that allow rule-breaking.

Their tech mostly comes from scavanged parts of Imperium and from the tampering with the Troor and the Dark Lava deep within their planets. Electric Lava would be the best way to describe Energon, it's lava spooled into Electricity. So it usually will have a gets hot roll, and has a negative effect on the hammer. It doesn't have a negative effect on the Axe because of the blade. It slashes out from the blade when swung like a shot of Energon, thus +2str, and Power Weapon.

I'll post some fluff around their technology and its foundations as well. Similar to the original Squats way of making weapons in a lot of ways. That dwarf inheritance hasn't changed much, just advanced.

Much thanks for the post and for reading.

I've updated some fluff and re-posted them with the Units to make the read more authentic. I added some guns that will be used primarily by the Guardians who have yet to be posted.
I've corrected some spelling errors and mis-wordings but obviously not all.
I've fixed up some point costs around and made an addition to the Keepers which I like. I've also forgot to say Merry Christmas, so, Merry Christmas!!! And A Happy New Year!!!

Made some edits, finally came up with a name for the bikes. Changed a name of a gun to something I hopefully won't find popping up in any codex, but I have trouble remembering all of them when I'm writing this.
Any guns or units you notice that exist in codex's already please tell me, so I can change, any ideas for names appreciated. Won't post the Guardians until I'm more happy with the flow of this. AS right now The Planet Crackers are a workable and playable army. Thanks for any criticism and all support.

Brood and broodlord are actually from X-men comics, but unlike X-men, it's also not copywrited so GW could use it no troubles. So I could technically still keep the name...but finding a better name would be nice. Any ideas???

Pyrox sounds workable.
Pyrox Hammer
Pyrox Axe
Pyrox Cannon
Pyrox Pistol

Yep, that's workable. Have alot of editing to do but, its Dwarf-like.
I like the conept of it not being actually ore but energy. Like electricity but a different form of power. So Engiron and Engern Ore don't really work. Nice combo though.
In this case however Pyrox may also need a slight work-over. Combining minds is the way to go in most situations.

I am greatly appreciative of all ideas and enjoy the chance to combine my mind with other players so as to better the chances of this army ever getting taken seriously by GW. Am currently working on modeling techniques for people who wish to play it and looking to turn the finished Planet Cracker part of the Codex into an adobe platform. My personal sketches aren't great however so I'm afraid to post them. Ha ha, seriously.

Hey, what about Pyral... the energy itself could be called Pyra (pronounced Pira) when used as something, much like an electronic car, or a las cannon the wording changes, becoming Pyral, (Pronounced as written unlike it's short form.) So...
Pyra in a gun becomes...
Pyral Pistol
etc.
Pyral Ax
Pyral Cannon
Pyral Hammer
The ore of which is mined and processed to create Pyra (much like that of nuclear energy) is called Pyrox.
(I combined all of our ideas together, and I think it worked out nicely. Even though we didn't make a captain planet. Utilizing the new ore to create an energy based on what the idea of Energon was representing, in short, you guys are awesome and thank you.)

... .. ... that's a good point.

I can pop some fluff in for it, make it look tougher. (Is pyra gauss? or Pyral??)
In the core of their dying planets the Dwellars had to develop machines to sustain the worlds life. In doing so they dug deep into the center of their homeworlds, deeper than should ever have been dug. Along the way creating vast cities underground many of which believed sunlight to be a myth. Lava was the common word associated with life. It was lava that kept families warm and turned the wheels that powered their cities. It was lava that would also decide when a Dwellar had dug the wrong path. When the Dwellar had finally dug deep enough to attach the machines of Tek to the worlds cores, each great homeworld would see the protector of the center of their planets in the form of a lava as black as space. *Lava taming and herding is further addressed in the Dragons unit choice fluff.* After years of navigation and creation, the Dwellar found a way to survive passage through this smelting hot protector, as well as a unique bonus for their troubles. The crystal like stones called (*INSERT THE NAME HERE*) which let of energy like a gods hammer.

Any human might of given these stones a category amongst electricity, but Dwellar have more respect for the unique aspects of their worlds. This power needed it's own name. As they came to notice, it could be used to power a city, but it was wild. It was dangerous and often explosive if handled foolishly. A crystal that eminated such power could have many uses. Most of which, the Dwellar, (still thirsty for revenge a gainst a cosmos that tried to obliterate them,) knew could be for war.
Quickly these crystals were worked upon, many an engineer dying in attempts to pattern them into weapons. Putting them in guns that carried Troor bullets seemed to enhance the weapons firing capacity to a speed that denied even the Troors imediate protection. Some of the wielders would find it had some backfiring tendencies but a worthwhile risk the leaders considered. A real Dwellar wouldn't die from a smoldering gun handle, though it exploading could prove fatal to some, it was much more fatal for their enemies.
Putting the power into a cannon that focused the energy out like waves of lightning instead of pushing out bullets or missiles, was the gretest achievement of Tek's descendant Yuler, though he himself prefers the steel and missile form of war over these energy beams. Which can at times prove to kill multiple enemies with a single shot. The risk of explosion however is even greater.

The hammers infused with these crystals are sometimes just as dangerous to the wielders, but powerful crushin tools and have proved a useful ally against all enemies.

The most prized infusion is the Axe. Somehow it perfectly blends with the crystals, sending the wave out frome the blade like a sonic force of energy for a prized killing tool. The most impressive close combat weapon of the entire Dwellar army some might say. The only case where the infusion has not had any bad side effects to the weilder.

So now I have a more clear idea of what the crystals are and what they've given, a name should come along more easily...? But what...?

“We are the ones you left for dead. The ones you left in the ground. Buried and forgotten, we have tunneled our ways to the stars, and there will be no dirt nor cave where you can hide. The Dwellar are here.”

“Well, what do you carry the gun for if you’re just going to waste bullets?” Timer reloads his Boomer as Forling fires his Shrapper.
“I may ‘ne be a good shot Timer, but I don’t miss much from this close up with my hammer,” Forling continues to fire.
“All the enemies are good and far away so what the hell does that…” Timer looks up to see Forling giving him an angry stare. “Oh, yea, ok, um, good shooting.”

Okay, now you're just channeling Minecraft.

Hey, there's an idea. Anyone want to make a custom texture pack for Minecraft:40,000?

not fair, I've never played minecraft or am aware of what it is


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Serizian
That's a new name, that'll work
A Serizian axe or hammer.
A Serizian Pistol or Cannon.
Made possible with the energy from a Serizian Crystal.
(Though it sounds itself like a race, It's fine. I may even make it the name of the beasts the Guardian Elite troops rides. The flying Serizians that dwelt in the caves which held the black lava. Or something like that. WIP. )
But serisouly, what is minecraft? Is it good?

Youtube it if you can. If not, check out Minecraft.net.

It's a game with no purpose other than to mine and utilize resources. It's absolutely great.
