New "Chaos" Dwarfs from Mantic!

The new Abyssal Dwarfs will soon be available from Mantic Games, which make me, for one, very excited. Coinciding with Chaos Dwarfs being released soon from Warhammer Forge, this is an exciting time to love little men (in more ways than one). I’ve already added the Chaos Dwarf capital to my new campaign map.
There are several units about to be released, most of which are pretty darn cool. Let’s have a look at them.
The first unit we have are the Black Souls. These seem to be the basic warriors and I have to say I am liking them. Mantic have a reputation for producing some really nice GW-compatible miniatures for reasonable prices (the zombies are amazing) and these seem to be in line with that. I don’t like everything mantic have produced but I’ll definitely be getting these.
Next up are the Decimators for a bit of long range support. Again, they’re pretty nice. I wasn’t quite so sure about the mouth on the leader but it’s starting to grow on me.

The Immortal Guard are an elite unit. Several of my friends aren’t too keen on the mantic Abyssal Dwarfs but I don’t know why. They’re great!

Apart from this. I’m afraid I’m not a fan. But we can’t have everything. I plan to fill my army with these guys and use the occasional expensive but fantastic model from Warhammer Forge.
But what about rules?
Warhammer Forge will be releasing rules in the upcoming Throne of Chaos book , but in the meantime there is a great fan-written army book available HERE. In fact on this site is an amazing array of different army books for obscure Warhammer armies like Araby, Cathay and Amazons.

  1. Well, what can I say? Another project on the way. These guys seem to be quite straight forward to paint, though. Maybe I'll get some of these myself one day. I'm just surprised about the prices that Mantic is having right now. I was expecting these models to be cheaper...
