A Tale of Several Gamers

Recently we started a new series of articles (something like "A Tale of Four Gamers" in White Dwarf mag), the rules are pretty simple:

  • choose an army (roster of 4500pts);
  • you can use any miniature of any company/copies acceptible;
  • convert/paint and publish it every week... 
At the moment there are 5 participants:
  1. Porw / Dwarf Holds
  2. Shinymetallass / Saurian Ancients
  3. BigFatCat19 / Orcs & Goblins
  4. yoshi / Dread Elves
  5. flam / Empire of Sonnstahl
Dwarf King with great weapon
& shieldbearers.

Dragon Seeker with runic
additional hand weapon.

The Anvil of Power. (in process).

Let's talk about Rangers...Dwarf Rangers

I allways loved dwarf rangers, they are number two of my favorite unit list (ironbreakers/deep watch are #1). But how can I use them in The 9th Age... Talking with different dwarf players I came to a view of suicide squad or diverting unit, but recently I changed my mind due to explanations of our dwarf-comrade Tim"FavCrusher"Bargmann (2nd place in a Masters warm-up, ETC).
I think Rangers are one of our best units we have. @FavCrusher 

Let's look at the dwarf rangers more closely (v.1.2.2):
- they are expensive;
- they are no way cc specialists (WS4, S3, A1) on they own;
- they've got best BS in our army, but still only 4 and the choice of xbows or th.weapons for that matter...
