Wow, I've known about these minis from White Knight miniatures for a while but I've on just seen them painted up.

I must get myself some.

Ideally I’d like to use them in game so I wanted to run some house rules by you guys.

This is the first attempt.

I basically took a dwarf ironbreaker and stuck him on a warhorse with movement 6", then I just doubled the points from 13 for an ironbreaker to 26 for a dwarf knight.

 

Do you think they should cost more?

Maybe they should be closer to 30 points, their stats are great but they only have 1 attack, most other elite cavalry have 2 attacks so I kept the cost down. 

Looking at it I think the shields should be optional at 4 points, so you're paying a bit more for the 1+ save. 

Maybe the greatweapon should cost more to make the lance a better option (at the moment it's terrible as dwarves are initiative 2).

 

Let me know what you think.

horses are 8 normally, 7 with barding so 6 would work as dwarves are only 1m short on humans etc.

Just posting to clarify rules for the proving grounds campaign as these rules were posted before the latest edition of the dwarf book.

Changes to bring them in line with the latest book:

  • Champion, Standard, Musician all cost 10pts each
  • Knights benefit from all dwarf race traits those that have any effect; Ancestral grudge, Resolute, Relentless
  • Lances are included for free, great weapons are 4pts each.
