Initial Thoughts on Tamurkhan

One significant problem with living in close proximity to the Memphis Factory store is that every time I go in there I come out with a much lighter pocketbook.  My newest acquisition is the new Warhammer Forge Tamurkhan.  Simply put this  book is one of the prettiest gaming books ever to grace my shelves.  This leather bound tome includes rich illustrations throughout the full color pages.  From it's size and weight it actually gives the Big Red Book a run for it's money, though they are both around the same price point.  Written from the perspective of a lost document detailing a "historical" account of a Chaos invasion into the Empire it has been a very enjoyable read so far, though to be fair I've only scratched the surface.  It does appear to be a tremendous resource for the fluff gamer especially in regards to the Chaos Dwarfs.  The book provide several army lists, though it is clear that these were meant to be played as part of a larger campaign which is more geared to the hobby.  Finally, it remains to be seen whether the "Official" Chaos Dwarf army list will be adopted into the Indy GT scene.  I suppose this decision hinges on how balanced the list is in regards to the rest of the army books.
