    2,000pts with anvil (new to dwarfs)

    Hail greybeards,

    I am thinking about buying my roomates dwarfs and wanted to run this list by you all to see if it was any good.

    This isn't all of what he has but this list has alot of the stuff I really like about dwarfs. He also has a bunch of miners that I thought would go well with an anvil

    Runelord
    Master Rune of Balance
    Shield
    Anvil of Doom

    Thane
    Master Rune of Swiftness
    Rune of Fury
    Rune of Cleaving
    Rune of Stone
    Shield

    Master Engineer
    Brace of Pistols

    20 Dwarf Warriors
    Shields
    Full Command

    20 Long Beards
    Shields
    Full COmmand

    10 Thunderers
    10 Thunderers

    20 Ironbreakers
    Full Command

    Grudge Thrower
    Rune of Accuracy

    Bolt Thrower
    Rune of Penetrating
    Engineer

    Bolt Thrower
    Engineer

    Organ Gun

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This list comes out to exactly 2,000 pts. I think its pretty balanced and can be effective against a variety of opponents.

    The Master Engineer goes with the grudge thrower, is entrenching the anvil of doom possible/recommended?

    I'm not sure if hammerers or ironbreakers are deemed more effective, but as far as fluff and models go I am a bigger fan of the ironbreakers myself.

    Suggestions in Red
    Runelord

    Master Rune of Balance
    Shield
    Anvil of Doom
    Even with 7 DD it can be nice to have some scrolls, and you might consider throwing a RoStone on there just to get that AS up a little higher. Otherwise, this is good.

    Thane
    Master Rune of Swiftness
    Rune of Fury
    Rune of Cleaving
    Rune of Stone
    Shield
    Good.

    Master Engineer
    Brace of Pistols
    Personally, I only use Master Engi's for cannons, but that's me.

    20 Dwarf Warriors
    Shields
    Full Command

    Good
    20 Long Beards
    Shields
    Full Command
    Good

    10 Thunderers

    10 Thunderers
    Get some shields on those thunderers if you can. Ranged units with 4+ AS in CC are just spectacular

    20 Ironbreakers
    Full Command
    Many people prefer Hammerers over Ironbreakers because they are statistically better, but don't let that stop you from fielding these guys. Also, you should try to get a rune on their banner: Battle, Stoicism, Courage, or a combination are all good choices.

    Grudge Thrower
    Rune of Accuracy
    Good.
    Bolt Thrower
    Rune of Penetrating
    Engineer
    Kill those chariots!
    Bolt Thrower
    Engineer
    Good.
    Organ Gun
    mmm...

    Personally, I would change those thunderers to quarrelers to get the points for their shields and the rune on the IB banner/RoSpellbreaking.
    Also, to answer your question regarding the anvil of doom it can be entrenched by the Engi, this can be found in the faq (I believe) if you want verification.

    Its 8 dispel dice actually, and i have found that amount to be enough usually, my lizardmen have 7 dispel dice and so far that has always been enough for more than adequate magic defense.

    I like the extra range of the crossbows, but I don't really think it outweights both the increased accuracy and armor piercing of the thunderers. So I don't really know where to get the points for your other suggestions.

    Forgot you had MRoBalance. My mistake.

    You could remove a champ from one unit, along with removing one model from the unit which your Thane will be in. That would give you the points you'd need for the shields at least.
