Default Dwarf 1500 Friendly

What up Peeps? Long time no see.
Anyway, I was having a rummage (as you do) and found a load of dwarfs that look neglected, so I'm gonna paint 'em up and have a few games.

Thane (with Ironbreakers)
Oath Stone, Shield, Rune of Preservation, Master Rune of Challenge, Rune of the Furnace, Rune of Luck. 147pts

Runesmith (with Warriors)
Shield, 2 Runes of Spellbreaking, Rune of Luck. 113pts

24 Warriors with shields inc. full command. 241pts

12 Thunderers with full command. 193 pts

12 Thunderers with full command. 193 pts

20 Longbeards, GW, shields and full command. 265pts

19 Ironbreakers, Full command. 2x Ancestor Runes and Rune of Battle. 322pts

Total 1474

Its not really optimised, just what ive got in me box. Any ideas? For 2000pts I'll probably grab a Lord on a shield with a big block of Hammerers. Oh, and no Gunlines. I mean, I've got a couple of cannon in the box (what dwarf player doesn't?) but I find it all a bit tedious.

Stick a V8 in it!

Looks alright. But I dont like the thane. Do you need the Rune of the furnace on him? Even the rune of preservation is a little out of place i think, though if you like what youve got it your choice. I would drop the FC on the thunderers.

Other than that it looks ok.

I just prefer defensive runes to offensive, thats all, I think they're better value for money. My usual ploy in WFB is to cause a few casualties and use combat resolution bonuses to force break tests. The thunderers will cover the flanks, and hopefully the standards and musicians will make all the difference to winning or losing, particularly as most 'fast' flanking units aren't that big.

rune of the funace prevents character sniping with rule of burning iron- inever leave home without it!
personaly, i dont like the rune of luck. also, your thunderers do not need full comand. ditch it, so that you can have more stuff.
personly, i never leave home without 3 warmachines, and still have enough room for big blocks of troops (which is the sign of a good dwarf army).
otherwise it is fine.

humm, true. This is yet again proof the Orks are smarter the Elves.-Micklez
