I like it. It's a new take on Chaos Dwarves. I kinda imagine him just gutturaly cheering on all the carnage. Kind of like that diminutive henchmen that revels in all the violence his masters are causing. And the fact that he has a different grip on each hammer is also a nice touch

So the fact that, anatomically speaking, it is a disaster beyond repair (with limbs randomly attached to the body like a chaos spawn and muscles that makes Catachans look good) doesent bother you at all?

I'll be honest the best new models from this set for me are the Chaos Furies.
They turned probably some of the worst models gw has ever produced into something interesting and characterful.

Look like standard fantasy Dwarf proportions to me. You don't have to like it, but your tastes aren't universal.

I don't agree with this assessment. If you want limbs randomly sticking out of places, look at the new Chaos Terminators. Even by GW's standards, those are appalling. The Chaos Dwarf has raised upper arms that should be, and are, above shoulder level. The left arm is raised higher, so the shoulder plate is slanted and higher on his left. The hip is twisted with one leg back and one leg forward as if advancing. I have a really hard time seeing how you get the idea that the limbs are in the wrong places.

The muscles? Certainly not to everyone's taste, but that's simply the standard in Age of Super Buff Dudes. Everyone has that. Tzeentch's skinny librarians are super buff by any human standard. Khorne's blood blooders are even buffer. Have you had a look at the Fish Elves? Super buff, like you've never seen before on an elf. It may look funny applied to a dwarf if you are not familiar with the idea, but that aesthetic has been around since Fyreslayers and this Chaos Dwarf is nothing new in that regard. It's just how things in Age of Sigmar are.

Yeah, I think the furies are the real standout. They aren't over designed like most other things released for AOS.

I'm pleased that GW finally remembered that "Warriors of Chaos" is more than dudes with Khorne Cafeteria trays coming out of their heads.

I look forward to seeing the different aesthetics they bring to the table. Hopefully we get something closer to the original Chaos Warriors, so I will finally have more motivation to play AoS besides "my friends are begging me to".

Putting your political and ideological opinions in your signature isn't a clever way to get past the ban.

If you can't put that aside and discuss games with other people, you probably have an obsession and need professional help.

Im hoping for more darkoath (the Ghur guys have way too many bones on them to match tje current darkoaths, who look like a cross between the ghur boys and the iron golems)

If you don't like the chaos dwarf then I quess the Iron Golems aren't the warband for you.

Remember this is the realm of Chaos not everything will be anatomically correct or aesthetically pleasing.

I think several of the models suffer from some really bad poses. Like they are posing instead of fighting. But I guess for a bunch of people trying to get the attention of the chaos gods, maybe it makes sense that they spend a lot of time looking up in the sky and striking a cool pose.

And I don't like the general style of the gladiator/diving bell faction. I'm looking forward to seeing how the other chaos factions look, though. The Ghur ones look pretty good, aside from the silly poses.

Yeah, the sillier poses look like "victorious gladiator" poses as they promote their sacrifice to the Dark Gods. Certainly more classy than teabagging (leave that to Slaanesh?).

I like the general theme of the Iron Golems, but I really wish they had mail over the exposed abdomens to really cement the armoured Chaos warrior-smiths look. Exposed stomachs just seems a bit... odd. Especially combined with mail breeches and skirts. Something a bit closer to Chaos knights basically, Chaos warriors-at-arms

I like the Ghur warband a lot more than I like the Darkoath. They look more savage, and less 80s barbarians. The one thing I'm not a fan of are their bone weapons. Because they don't make any sense. I get that creatures are weird in AoS and chaos makes mutations, but one dude has a weapon which is just three different jawbones. Not lashed together, but a single bone with three different jawbones. Looks like the symbol Skaven occasionally use. And I can't imagine what creature it comes from.

I think for me, that dwarf has iron spikes inside his elbows where they bend. I understand that I am not inside his body, but for ME, if *I* had the spikes in my elbows, I could not bend my arms.. and it hurts to look at him.

Plus, with the hand grips/handles on the warhammers he has, he has NO ability to build torque as he swings them.. they ALMOST look like he should punch with them..

Really not a fan

Cut the mini-hammers off (gods, I didn't even see them until this discussion), cut the hammer heads and handles off and glue the handles between the hands and the heads. Model somewhat salvaged in two minutes.

He's very much the weakest member in tha band and the Iron Golems are FAR less cool than the bone band, IMO. And I'm not just saying that beause I really want the sabretooth skull for Atramentar pauldrons.

He's a solid sculpt. The torso has good mass for a 'strong' creature of his height, the shoulders are lifted with the pose etc.
The spikes arent in his elbows, they are next to them. On the top or bottom of the hinge rather than inside the hinge.
He has large triceps relative to his biceps, but thats not anatomically odd, its a larger muscle group.
Hes holding the hammers high, but the 'guards' are on his hands, not the hammers based on the paint colour choices, so he could be holding them anywhere.

But the rest are winners. I wonder if they can be cross bred with Goliaths. No idea what I'd be making but I would want about 100 of them! Maybe counts as Orks... yeah.

Same here, whle the fury look a bit too similar to Confrontation Gargoyle, it is solid. The raptor on the other end.....

Really eager to see the other bands, this game looks like a winner

I love how the Furies have daggers.... makes them appear to be something more than animal. I mean, aren’t they undivided daemons ? And the Raptoryxes are awesome. I hope they play up the beast/daemon angle around the warbands themselves. Lots of opportunity for new stuff.

Yeah, a fighting force wearing the icon of their faction is pretty crazy.
