    Thane
    Shield, Crossbow, Master Rune of Swiftness, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Stone

    ah the ever classic thane of pain. i can't see anything wrong with this guy. perhaps dropping the crossbow and shifting points elsewhere?

    Thane
    Standard, Rune of Slowness

    while the idea is awesome, i don't think the battle standard is best suited for the rune of slowness. generally speaking as far as magic standards go the best plan is to go for one of the big standards (stromni/valaya) or the strollaz standard, these provide maximum support and can't be found elsewhere in the dwarf army on unit standards. otherwise tooling for defence is an excellent plan. remember that the only thing harder to break than dwarves are dwarves with re-rolls keep this chap alive and i can promise excellent results,perhaps a master rune of gromril for a 1+ save and a rune of striking for Ws7? (means WS3 needs 5's to hit him)

    Dragon Slayer
    Fury, Cleaving, Grudge Rune, Rune of Stone

    i'd recommend having another read over this chaps profile, slayers may only have runic weapons. otherwise i quite like him. i do wonder however if he is fast enough for the grudge rune to really pay off?

    Thunderers [10]
    Musician+Vet+Brace

    Thunderers [10]
    Musician+Vet+Brace

    can't see anything wrong with these guys, makes it a rather shooty list of course but with your miners you should be fine

    Warriors [24]
    Shields, Musician, Standard, Vet.

    excellent, nothing wrong here

    Miners[16]
    Musician, Standard, Prospector w/ Drill

    miners will take some getting used to i would think, they are a tricksy unit to use well after all. perhaps loose 1 member? its 5 wide for ranks after all, it makes that last fellow somewhat surplus.

    Cannon
    Rune of Forging

    Cannon
    Rune of Forging, Rune of Burning

    again nothing wrong here, you might wish to invest in a grudge thrower or an organ gun in the future however as these are generally considered the premier warmachines for dwarves

    Bolt Thrower,
    Rune of Seeking, Rune of Burning

    the rune of seeking is ok i suppose.. but somewhat of a one trick pony. might i suggest trying to get an engineer crew champion and a rune of penetraiting on this? the engineer will provide an excellent BS of 4 and the rune of penetrating makes the BT S7 for that chariot auto killing goodness
    overall its a solid list. i recommend having a good solid read of the army book though, it seems your knowledge can be shaky at places but its perfectly understandable :happy:

    to answer your question. no, warriors cannot have runes on their banners. if you check the profiles for longbeards, hammerers or ironbreakers you will find that they have an allowance for runes to stick on their banners


    spambot kill tally: 79


    [16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.

    So I took your suggestions. I've decided that I would try to see what I would add to make it a 2k point list. I've got around 264 points left. I added in the other dragonslayer simply because I own two of those models, but I might take him out, giving me 370 points, roughly. Perhaps another piece of artillery and another squad of 24 Warriors? Heres the new list.

    Dwarf Lord "Barrik The Slovenly"
    GW, Shield, Oath Stone, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Snorri Spangelhelm, Master Rune of Kragg the Grim, Rune of Stone
    249

    Thane
    Shield, Crossbow, Rune of Striking, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Stone
    102

    Thane
    Standard, Stollaz, Rune of Striking
    155

    DragonSlayer
    Rune of Snorri Spangelhelm, Grudge Rune, Rune of Fury.
    120

    DragonSlayer
    Rune of Snorri Spangelhelm, Grudge Rune, Rune of Fury.
    120

    Thunderers [10]
    Musician+Vet+Brace
    165

    Thunderers [10]
    Musician+Vet+Brace
    165

    Warriors [24]
    Shields, Musician, Standard, Vet.
    217

    Miners[15]
    Musician, Standard, Prospector w/ Drill
    215

    Cannon
    Rune of Forging
    125

    Cannon
    Rune of Forging, Rune of Burning
    130

    Bolt Thrower,
    Rune of Burning, Rune of Penetrating, Engineer
    90

    1736

    Either I could put the thane with the standard and the Lord into that one warriors unit and make them ridiculously powerful, or put the standard thane into one of the thunderers units and give me a littlebit more mobility to position for some shootin'.
