Chuck a Dwarf
Is there anything better than a massive contingent of marauding Dwarfs charging headlong in to a cluster of Orcs? Not really, unless they’re backed up with custom Dwarfen artillery of course.
Total War developers Creative Assembly have been showcasing the new siege weaponry for upcoming real-time strategy mammoth, Total War: Warhammer as part of their increasing number of sneak peeks in to the development of the game. Games Workshop’s ‘Dwarfs’ (rather than ‘Dwarves’ in keeping with the established spelling) are known for their great use of artillery, which they’ll be putting to use in this game, hopefully along with some strong regional accents. As expected, the Dwarfen arsenal looks suitably magnificent: multi-barrelled cannon pieces adorned with intricate gold braiding and fearsome giant flamethrowers make up part of the new set.
All I really want though is the ability to fling Dwarfs from catapults in to packs of unsuspecting Orcs.
Total War: Warhammer is scheduled for release next year.
