    1000 pts friendly - new to dwarfs

    Greetings,

    I just put together this list with my dwarves which I've never actually managed to play yet for a friend to try out 8th ed with, and was looking to get some feedback on how feasible this list is for a start:

    Dwarf Thane 109
    Great Weapon
    Master Rune of Gromril
    Rune of Warding

    20 Warriors with shields 205
    Full command

    20 Longbeards with great weapons 335
    Full command
    Rune of Courage and Rune of Determination

    10 Thunderers with shields 150

    Bolt Thrower 65
    Rune of Burning
    Engineer

    8 Miners 138
    Full command
    Steam drill


    Any feedback you might have for this list would be greatly appreciated. Any additional models, however, aside from a gyrocopter which was given to me the other night, would need to be purchased for play. Not that I'm against this; I'd just prefer to know what's good to buy.

    Thank you!

    IMO it doesn't look to bad to begin with, just a few suggestions for you in green.

    Excellent, i use almost the same setup apart from the rune of warding as it will do next to nothing. In a 1000 points game your 4 DD should get you through fine.
    20 Warriors with shields 205
    Full command
    Solid.
    20 Longbeards with great weapons 335
    Full command
    Rune of Courage and Rune of Determination
    This is okay, but i find that longbeards work better with the HW+shield combo. Not only is it cheaper, but increases their survivability as well. S4 is quite good to begin with anyway. I would also drop the rune of determination. I know this may not seem like much, but if you are putting your thane in the longbeards, you could drop them down to 19 and still get the 3 ranks, freeing up another lot of points.
    10 Thunderers with shields 150
    solid.
    Bolt Thrower 65
    Rune of Burning
    Engineer
    Good, a favourite of mine
    8 Miners 138
    Full command
    Steam drill
    I enjoy using miners as well, and i find that they will work well without the full command. In my 1000 point list i use a unit of 10 with a prospector w/ steam drill.

    Any feedback you might have for this list would be greatly appreciated. Any additional models, however, aside from a gyrocopter which was given to me the other night, would need to be purchased for play. Not that I'm against this; I'd just prefer to know what's good to buy.

    Thank you!

    If you like the suggestions i have made, with the points left over you could boost the miners up to 10, possibly boost the warriors up to 25, maybe another bolt thrower, or any number of diiferent things.
