Chainmail Set 4: Dwarf Peoples Guard
By Rob Heinsoo
Model: Dwarf Peoples Guard
Why It Rocks: The shieldwork of the Peoples Guard, and its willingness to throw itself into harms way to protect other models alongside it (giving them higher armor scores) makes this model a keeper.
Tips and Tactics: Mordengard players, who already have a good thing going with clerics casting shield of faith, know exactly how powerful another +2 armor can be for their toughest fighters. Dwarf Peoples Guards are low-cost support troops for your best fighters. These models are tough enough that numbers of them can even inflict some damage on their own, especially because they help each others armor.
But dont expect the Peoples Guards to survive the battle. Survival is a bonus and indicates that your opponent has had to fight the hard way, hacking through the models protected by the Peoples Guard.
Enemies Who Hate to See It: Undead models that already have low attack scores dont care for the Dwarf Peoples Guards, nor do ranged attackers who rely on landing a significant portion of their pre-melee contact shots.
