Got tips and strategies that work well against the Chaos Dwarfs? Share them here with other warlords! Since the release of the new 8th edition, the game has changed a great deal and new tactics must be developed and discussed in order for da greenskins to crump ‘em good!
For linkage to the main O&G 8th Edition Tactical Handbook
It may be worth holding fire on this one until Forgeworld's Tamurkhan CD army list has been well fought against? It's a pretty solid list after a quick glance.

Hell yeah its a hard army to beat. A guy at my local gaming club has a Chaos dwarf army and nobody has beaten him to date, and that includes tournaments.
He takes a L4 Wizard and a L2, BSB, 2 units of 20 Hobgoblins, a Ka'daai destroyer, a Deathshrieker rocket, 2 magma cannons and 2 iron daemons and finally 30 infernal guard.
He deploys mostly in 1 corner of the board, and sends the destroyer after you with its 4+ ward save - the rest justs sits shooting you.
The hobgoblins are usually placed in a line infront of everything else, they have bows and throwing weapons.
Thats at 2400 points.
I've played two 2Kpt games against my Dwarf opponent.
He has 2 grudge throwers, 2 organ guns, a cannon, 2 bolt throwers, 2 warrior units and a unit of long beards. Two rune smiths and a rune lord.
He stops my magic unless I roll double 6's.
He hurts me greatly with his war machines that by the time I get to close combat, I'm too weak to do much.
This is pretty hard for me so far.
The only thing I can think of is either playing something tactical with the terrain in my favor, or who knows.....
This is the thread for Chaos Dwarfs, NOT normal dwarfs. :mellow:
