    This thread probably should be in Bugman's Brewery, and I apologise in advance, but I don't know if they have a section for unofficial army books. I know you're a member, @Killer Angel - do they have a section for it? If so, I'll post it there. In the meantime, I hope all you Warhammer Dwarf players here like my unofficial army book for the Slayers - Warhammer: Cult of Grimnir!

    I have been inspired to do unofficial armies of my own through reading works produced by greats such as Matthias Eliasson and even our own @Scalenex, and have been thinking of producing rules for a Slayer army for a long time but only now have I had time to get down to it. Much of the lore remains the same as for regular Slayers in Warhammer: Dwarfs, but I have been weaving in a lot of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay lore about the Cult of Grimnir specifically, thanks to Warhammer Wiki publishing it online, and I have also introduced a little lore based on Fyreslayers in that I thought that the Cult of Grimnir would refuse to believe that Grimnir was dead and would make quests to find him just as the Fyreslayers do in AoS, because it gives the army a higher goal.

    Army special rules wise, most of the rules from Warhammer: Dwarfs are kept except for Shieldwall because fluff-wise Dwarfs who are part of the Cult of Grimnir favour more aggressive tactics. Also, Deathblow, Slayer and Slayer Axes have been upgraded to Army Special Rules because I have a multitude of Slayer unit types planned.

    I also plan to bring back Saga Legends such as Malakai Makaisson and Gotrek and Felix and include Fantasy rules and Lore for all the Fyreslayer models!

    Haven't completed the book yet but Stay Tuned and hope you like it! :)

    I still don't know so perfectly all those dwarven vaults, but I'd say that the best place to post such a thing could be The fields Beyond.

    But it's a LOOONG time no one posts anything in there, so you could ask for advice in the Grumblers Fireplace.

    BTW, given that we're talking about Slayers, Gotrek will get his own audio-drama Series set in the Mortal Realms; at least, judging from this post.
