the only reason i lose with my dwarfs is because i have only just got over the idea that i dont need SCR. wrong!! you need it like a dwarf needs beer. there are two ways to win a combat-dont get in one(dwarfs are good being able to blow away the enemy) and start with high SCR- a standard unit should have a SCR of 4, possibly 5. that means the enemy needs to kill 5 modles just to break even-not a easy feat vs t4 and a high AS.
also, they are great to paint, requiring metals and dark colours-HE need white, or similar colours, which in my experiance is hard to paint.
humm, true. This is yet again proof the Orks are smarter the Elves.
