I've never played Warhammer before so this is all based in theory.
I realy need some ideias about my dwarf army.
No particular tournament in mind, i'm just making my self an army to figth with.
Darf Lord (gromil armour, shield, great wepon) 161pts
Runesmith (heavy armour, shield) 76pts
12 Miners (1 Musician) 150pts
15 Wariors (1 Musician, 1 Veteran, 1 Standard Bearer) (heavy armour, shields) 160pts
12 Thunderers (shield) 180pts
12 Thunderers (shield) 180pts
19 Hammerers (1 Standard Bearer, 1 Musician) 303pts
16 Ironbreakers (1 Standard Bearer) 220pts
Stone Thrower 85pts
Organ Gun 125pts
Rune of the Furnace on Darf Lord
Rune of Battle on Hammerers
Rune of Penetrating and Rune of Fortune on Organ Gun
Rune of Burning and Rune of Accuracy on Stone Thrower
Rune of Spellbreaking and Spelleater Rune on Runesmith
Master Rune of Groth One-Eye on Warriors
Rune of Courage on Ironbreakers
The Darf Lord groups with the Hammerers.
The Runesmith groups with the Warriors.
The Engeneer groups with the Stone Thrower Crew.
The concept is to have the Thunderers and the Organ Gun in the middle protecting the Stone Thrower, the Lord and Hammerers in the left and the Runesmith, Warriors and Ironbreakers in the right. The Stone Thrower should force the enemy to atack where my strong fighters would hold their lines in a first wave and flank any survivors. Miners should take care of enemy artillery. I tried to protect my self from enemy spells that could realy damage my ranks.
Well this is it.
Any comentary is welcome.

You should kit your lord with a thougher protection IMO, dawrfs are famous for being indestructible. Try this:
MRoGromil, MRoSpite, RoResistance.
Your ironbreakers should be 20 strong to rack up Static resolution much longer, they might not run from fear with the rune of courage, but they can still loose combat!
You can't give warriors a rune.
I think that you have too many thunders ( 1 unit of 10 is good) and not enough warriors. Also, you do not need command in the thunderers. I play dwarfs and win almost every battle. Dwarfs should be in units of 20, not 15 (not thunderers though). Also, you should try fitting a cannon in. A good idea is to take out hammerers and to add two units of 20 ironbreakers instead. Another thing is that the engineer is not that great. Instead, put more runes on lord and runesmith and put a rune of accuracy on the stone thrower. This is great. ORGAN GUN IS AWESOME.
O and another thing, you cant put runes onto the rare choice guns and you cant put runes on warriors.
I've been playing with dwarfs for longer than i care to remember and in my opinion your lord should be tooled up to both defend himself and to dish up some serious damage.I personally use
-Armour-Gromril armour,Shield,Rune of stone
-Weapon-Rune of fury,Rune of cleaving,Master rune of swiftness
-Talisman-Master rune of spite
This combo gives him 5 strength 5 attacks,a 2+ armour save and a 4+ward save
I think that you should consider dropping the rune of spelleating from your runesmith and give him the ever useful Master rune of balance.Another point is that you can't put runes on a organ gun or on the banner in unit of warriors and those points should be spent on increasing the size of your warriors and ironbreakers to 20 strong.I would also give my ironbreakers and hammerers a full command group and if the points will stretch a full command for the miners too.
You may want to consider dropping a unit of thunderers for a unit crossbowmen.Their longer range would mean that youshould be able to open fire on turn 1.Another thing I would suggest whilst on the subjuct of firepower would be to try to squeeze a bolt thrower into the list.The ability of the engineer to allow a re-roll to hit combined with it allowing no armour saves means that this weapon can devestate heavy infantry.And with the rune of penetrating boosting its strength to 7 it can destroy chariots with a single shot.
I hope that I haven't bored you with my little rant there its just that I get carried away.
