Dwarf Warriors? High Toughness when you hit the ranks will be an issue. Guess What?

It's Plague Time. Try the Skrolk 2.5K list -

Skrolk = 470

Plague Priest, Furnace, Censer, Level 2 = 297
Plague Priest, Furnace, Censer, Level 2 = 297

50 Plague Monks, Full Command = 375
50 Plague Monks, Full Command = 375

480
10 Censer Bearers = 160
10 Censer Bearers = 160
10 Censer Bearers = 160

Plagueclaw Catapult = 100
Plagueclaw Catapult = 100
2500 ish.

Plagueclaws are good against Dwarves and Close together units - although S2, they don't allow armour saves. I've lost quite a few warriors to that. Plus, it benefits from the new template rules, as it's a large template, doubly so.

Plague Censer Bearers have the potential to kill 5+ opponents if they roll 5+ before any blows are struck.

The Monks have enough attacks to make a dent, at a high enough initiative, as well as causing Toughness Tests with no armour save if failed against all in base contact being a major + versus Dwarves.

Not to forget that the Censer and Furnace Stack - A Breath Weaponish Plague Censer, OR causes Artillery Dice worth of S5 attacks can wipe out units.

Skrolk - well, obviously, he makes the list legal in the first place - but mainly, his abilities such as opponents being -1 to hit thanks to his Aura, AND his PL 6 Arcane Tome - now that every toughness is wounded on a 6, he becomes that much more deadly - on a 2+, the targetted unit takes a wound without armour saves on a 6+. How good is that against Dwarves? In CC, any multi wound creature taking 1+ wound must pass a toughness test or die instantly.

His 4 S6 attacks with the flail, and I6 means he's striking before the Dwarves, and T5 is more than capable of swinging it against a Runelord.

You have a lot of casting potential as well, having every spell in the Lore of Plague, all of which are useful - Bless with Filth especially when you have Frenzied Monks with Additional Hand Weapons. Combine Wither as well (IT'S NOT RIP EITHER), with the huge amount of Toughness Tests you cause with this army (and massed Low Strength attacks), and it's a quality spell as well.
