    750 point Friendly

    I am a wood elf player but I have helped my friend put this list together and would love some feedback from experienced dwarves. It's an army list for our campaign so it could be used against Wood elves, Empire and Chaos warriors.s

    Thane 142
    shield
    RoResistance
    RoStone
    MRoSpite

    Warriors 276
    24 models with shields
    Full Command

    Thunderers 195
    13 models with shields

    Cannon 135
    Rune of Forging (reroll missfires)
    Rune of Reloading (can fire every turn regardless of missfires and assuming there is atleast 1 crew member)

    ----------
    total 748

    I hate to enforce forum rules but you cannot post indevidual prices, try writing it like this:

    Thane:
    Shield
    RoResistance
    RoStone
    MRoSpite

    Total: 142

    Anyway, if he faces a lot of chaos, I would recomend taking an organ gun over the cannon

    the list isnt right, 24 warriors dont cost 276 pts. also i'd recommend taking those thunderers from 13 to ten, an organ gun over the cannon, and down grade the character.

    You now got a thane who isnt going to die. but if he breaks and runs, all those points are wasted. if i were you, i'd put on a r o cleaving on your thane instead of the m r o spite. does he really need that 4+ ward save. S5 is a lot more useful in small games, and it spares you antoher 25 pts.

    an organ gun more useful than a cannon, because it can tear units apart with one shot, that's something a cannon cant. also an organ gun is the only REAL good thing versus skirmishers, and heavy cav in a dwarf army. (except if you get a flank shot at that cav, but that's not likely to happen.
    it also frightens people when you have an organ gun, they will always try to avoid it, and therefore will interfere with their tactical moves, or something.

    10 thunderers work better IMO, because it is easier to deploy them. also i dont think that 3 thunderers arent going to make a big difference but it will save you 45 points!

    warriors are good.

    So you now have a lot of spare points. might be an idea of putting in a bolt thrower with r o penetrating and r o burning and an engineer. maybe if you can squeeze it in a unit of 10 hammerers or slayers? that way you will have a "block" of infantry that will hold quite a long time thich means you wont ever. or you could go for a unit of quarrelers qith great weapons.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the great advice. A quick question on grudge throwers: are they useful or are they far to unpredictable?

    I agree with pretty much all that JJB has said, although i think the thane doesn't even the R of resistance, just give a R of cleaving and a R of stone. As for the GT they are my favourite dwarf unit. In every army i take there is at least one, usually two. Once you start getting your guessing on target they absolutely own. As for the unpredictability, with the GT you can choose to re-roll the scatter dice and/or artillery dice. I would have to enforce JJB's decision to drop the cannon, in its place you can have either the organ gun or the GT. A GT with a R of accuracy (re-roll scatter) and a R of penetrating (+1ST) cost only 130 points - less than that cannon. With everything else just listen to JJB

    I've put together a new list

    Thane 117
    RoResistance
    RoStone
    RoCleaving

    Warriors 216
    24 with shields
    Full command

    Thunderers 165
    11 with shields

    Organ Gun 120

    Grudge Thrower 130
    RoAccuracy
    RoPenetrating

    ----748 total


    Do you guys think this is a good list or does it rely too heavy on the warmachines? Would it be better to drop one of the warmachines for another unit of slayers or hammerers?

    again the 24 warriors arent right. 24 warriors with shields and Full Command costs 241, so you might want to have another look at your list

    That looks a lot better, though i would recommend FC on the dwarf warriors.
    also you forgot the shield on your thane.
    You might as well want an engineer on your GT. such a thing blowing up in small games would really suck.

    rest looks okay
