I never knew that we wanted short armoured sky pirates but my local GW manager told me that that was just what we need.
To me they are more steampunk than High Fantasy but whatever they are they represent a radical departure from GW's previous take on Dwarfs.
I believe people will either love them or hate them, there's little scope for middle ground.
Personally I prefer the dirigibles rather than the infantry which I feel are two heavily armoured.
This ship is probably my favourite though I do have a soft spot for Dwarf airships given Thanquol's trip into the Chaos Wastes on one.
These though could be Devastators in a Squat army. They strike me as more 40k than Fantasy.
This again is a really nice model and could port into a KOW army.
I don't think that they will appeal to traditional Dwarf players. Like their army they like consistency and this is just a bit too much change. The Beardlings might like it, but the Longbeards will grumble and grumble.
Thunder Hammer, anyone?
All in all an interesting release. Probably the most polarising since the Sigmarines.
