So basically my three fighty units advance while my uber fear causing pretty much always outnumber, +4 to combat res uber unit, forms my center, I'm confident that with 30 thunderers and my artillery I can shoot any hordes down to size, or destroy elite units, My cannons are for Great eagle/Dragon/lone character/chariot hunting, While my organ gun goes for skirmishers and heavy cav.
The one problem I have with this list is one runesmith, I have 6 DD in my magic phase and my opponent is at -1 PD, he also has one dispel scroll, Is this enough magic defense?
6 DD is what a normal army has for magical defence, that said you have no magic of your own, so you may want more DD. As TK that -1 PD won't effect me, but for some armies it will help your cause. 30 Thunderers will do well against slow armies like chaos, but against true horde armies they won't mind it so much (Skaven come to mind, you get 3 rounds of shooting, hitting with 50% wounding with 66% they have about 200 models...). The melee units are a welcome change to what I usually see with dwarves however and I like the balanced approach you've made to dwarves with more of a mix, rather than what is usually a gunline army. Magic defence for anyone else would be fine, for dwarves I'm not sure if it is/isn't enough as you have none of your own.
