New Faction, and the reason why I might join

Without further ado: Steampunk Dwarf pirates?.

To be fair, I wasn't expecting to get into AoS, and I was a little ambivalent with the Fyreslayers, but, now that the Warmahordes community here is non-existant (there's me an another player, and he's quitting due to Blood Bowl, and we have more BB players), and there is a growing AoS base here... Yeah, this convinces me. I'll probably get a mix of the three Dwarf armies (Dispossessed, Fyreslayers, and these guys), and start from there. Also, I think I'll be trading/selling my Trollbloods.

I really like the Fyreslayers - they've grown on me.

I don't really like the balloon guy (though I can see why they made him etc) but the other dwarves are pretty cool! I love steampunky dwarves! The flying unit is awesome looking as well

Finally, I was right and the teaser picture with a Bloodthrister confronting something that looked mechanical was a dwarven machine.

Yeah, the balloon guy is weird, I might have to do some kitbashing/converting to turn that into a jetpack of sorts, but I appreciate the top hat, monocle and gentleman's curly mustache xD.

These seem so perfectly placed for those who've been waiting for Space Dwarves to return for the last 20 years that it's almost embarrassing that GW have slapped them in AoS packaging.

Obviously they er squatted the Squats years ago, so I can understand why they've put their steampunk faction in Sigmar. But boy oh boy these are just so perfect for Squats.

I will be getting some, and they won't even need much converting. These are clearly sci-fi models.
There's also their Necromunda-but-not-quite skirmish game... So, Squats-Mechanicus, maybe? :p

This is true

Although I'm still miffed there are no space rats. I've said it before, I'll say it again :P if any race was going to survive from Fantasy times to the 40k universe, you know it'd be rats :P and cockroaches but they already have tyranids.

Well, if you're ok with using figures from other companies, there's the Veer-Myn from Mantic Games, which are basically space rats. Rules-wise, I'm not sure. However, if there is one game where I'm sure the Space Rats should appear, is in Shadow Wars (Or Necromunda 2.0), which is also another thing that has me excited :D.

Counts as guard would be the easy choice.

A question about the old WHF bases: Do I need to change them to a round base, or can I use the square bases?.

The rules clearly state that bases don't matter. So, you can keep your old bases without problems.

I also think that for space Skavens, the Genestealer Cult is perfect. Both of them like living underground and both use weird weapons.

No.

No, no. NO.

lol

I really don't like Genestealer cult but I see where you're going with that. Anyway, I love the Veermyn models, I've been thinking about doing an Admech army with Skaven (counts as). Several others have done it and its turned out really cool looking!

But I would like some actual space rat rules etc. Maybe after 8th comes out. It could happen. The dwarves give me hope.
