Dafistofmork drop your thunderers to 10 men (dwarfs? meh) each, and with the availble pts get a runesmith with the master rune of balance and a rune of spellbreaking. considerer the rune of penertrating on your bolt thowers if you can afford it, if not no loss.

Lord Sven Kittyclaw It seems like an okay list, though you only have one hero, and little magic defense for a 2k game, you should probaly get a runesmith with the master rune of balance

Ishamael Alright, I've retooled the list after looking at the posts by all of you, so here we go:
2x 20 Dwarf Warriors
Standard Bearer
195 each

2x 10 Thunderers
150 each

20 Ironbreakers
Standard Bearer
Rune of Courage

Rune of Swiftness
Rune of Stone
Rune of Challenge
Oath Stone
147, attached to the Ironbreakers

Rune of Spellbreaking x2
Rune of Shielding
Anvil of Doom

Master Rune of Gromril
Master Rune of Balance

2x Organ Guns

2x Bolt Throwers
120 total

1984 is the new total. Fit a decent Runesmith in there with the points from the Thunderers.

Dafistofmork if you take the anvil, you will find miners invaluble. just move them on, then anvil them into your opponent.
you dont need the standard bearer in the thunderers, and where is your ironbreaker musician? a thane with an oathstone goes with ironbreakers like fish go with chips.

CoNnZ yeah take some bolt throwers and a grudge thrower. And buff up the warriors to 20 each. Bring a thane with the master rune of challenge i always find this handy. I would DEFINATELY bring the anvil with one or two runes of spellbreaking. Also drop the standards off the thunders you will never need them. They only help in combat and ranged guys shouldn't be in combat (duh!). Exchange against shields to minimize those casualties at range.

Commissar Volstav I would add a regular cannon or pair of bolt throwers

Trigger Agreed. I'd take at least blocks of 20 warriors, preferably 25

Lord Sven Kittyclaw The Runelord and the anvil of doom are good, but you will want more war machines and thunderers at 2k points if you down that route. If you decide to take a Dwarf lord Up the units sizes of those warriors, and get a unit of longbeards, or more warmachines/thunderers/quarellers

Well, I have taken a look at the Dwarf Army Book, and here is a quick rundown on what I want to have as my core set of units on the field.

2x 15 Warriors
Standard Bearer
150 pts. each squad

2x 10 Thunderers
Standard Bearer
150 pts. each squad

20 Iron Breakers
Standard Bearer
Rune of Courage
314 for the squad

2x Organ Guns
120 pts each.

Alright, this takes me to 1154 points, and I'm wondering on what units to take next, as well as what heroes I should use. This list will go for 2000 points, and I'm thinking of taking a Runelord and the Anvil of Doom.
