"Brokk get the Ironclads"

"Gotrek get the Fyreslayers"
Space Marines work.
Because Space Marines are at least somewhat original. Sigmarines are a copy. I actually have no issue with Space Marines beyond the fact that they are over-emphasized, over-represented and over-supported. I understand the financial reasons for doing so, but it does ruin them for me.
...so.... is anyone going to mention the fact that the Fyreslayers still have yet to garner a single vote?
I pity the poor magmadroths. Dragged into shame by their uninsipiring companions.
meh the fyreslayers suffer from being an overgrown cult. As a subfaction of the old dwarfs they were cool and interesting. On their own it just just a lot of the same. So they end up being a relativly uninteresting major faction.
Someone did before.
I would have voted for them if Fantasy Dwarfs had not been up there.
The poor guys aren't faring too well.
Mainly because the other resident Fyreslayer fans haven’t seen this thread. @Xasto @Wazz Your Lodges need you!
However, to be fair, they are up against 3 other top-quality armies as stiff competition. If they were up against, say, Sigmarines and Ossiarch, they’d win easily.
And also keep in mind:
When a vote calls for a favourite among something, being last place could still mean that they are very popular.
Like in: everyone's second place.
up next, ranked voting polls!
That is a good point. Let's investigate. Why don't we all post our ranked lists?
Mine is as follows:
Chaos Dwarfs / Legion of Azgorh
WFB Dwarfs / Dispossessed
The Chaos Dwarfs are far ahead for me. The WFB Dwarfs and Kharadorn Overlords are very close to each other in my mind, with the deciding factor being that the Dwarfs are part of WFB and the KO are part of AoS. Trailing very far behind are the Fyreslayers.
For me it's
2. Classic Dwarves
3. Probably Chaos dwarves since they seem cool.
4. Fyreslayers they just seem a bit plain and repetitive.
1. Classic dwarfs
3. Chaos dwarfs (but very close to ko)
I’m sure we did this at the beginning of this thread, but here’s mine for the sake of continuity:
KO (although they are pretty close to Fyreslayers)
For me it is this one.
Disclaimer: I have played none of them and I hardly know anything about half of them, so this is almost purely based on visuals.
1. Regular Dwarves
4. Chaos Dwarves
Main reason for #1 and #2 is heavy armor. I dig that.
2) Regular dwarfs
4) Chaos dwarves (I simply don't know enough about em to care)
meh that looks more like someone bolted a couple of steel plates to a dwarf, almost like orkish armour. Both KO and dispossed have what appears to be more carefully crafted armour.
