    dwarf 1000pt friendly

    ok i have only just resently started playing dwarfs though im not new to warhammer. i have got a fair bit of cash at the moment so i can make changes to the list with ease. heres the army list so far:

    thane
    rune of cleaving (+1S)
    rune of fury (+1A)
    rune of stone (+1 to AS)
    rune of striking(+1WS)
    shield 127

    10 thunderers 140

    10 warriors
    full command 115
    shields

    10 warriors
    great weapons
    full command 135
    shields

    10 long beards
    great weapons
    full command
    shields 165

    5 trolls slayers
    musician, standard, 73

    2 bolt throwers
    engineer each 120

    cannon
    rune of forging 125

    total:1000pts

    i think the slayers will probly be ineffective with so few models, but i am willing to give em a go.

    Sanity greetings and welcome to the fold.

    well sadly your list has some rather glaring flaws in it.

    dwarves are an attritional army. we win by having a solid set of static combat resolution and not dieing. as such dwarves work best in units of 20+. 10 is waaayyy to weak in my eyes and they will just get steam rolled over. id merge the two warrior units into a single 20 and lose the great weapons (as i said we win by not dieing and a 3+ armour save with Strength 3 striking last always beats 5+save striking last in my eyes.) doing this also frees up points to spend elsewhere in the list. same can be said for the long beards. they need to be at least 16 (elite dwarf units can perform well at this number due to their greater resistance to attack but at higher end games should really be made 20 strong..)

    the rune of striking on the thane is somewhat useless at this point level. i mean how many enemy units at 1000 points get ws6? not a lot. drop it and move the points else where.

    the slayers are not too bad. they may survive a charge (very unlikely) but its probably better to either A: drop them B: make the unit bigger. other wise they will end up as archer fodder.

    you may want to drop one of the two bolt throwers as well. it will be quite rare when you will need two bolt throwers and an organ gun at such low points so id recommend dropping one to beef up the other units.

    Fairly Solid List

    I don't think you can go too far wrong with this list. You have reasonably large blocks of troops. Drop one footdwarf in the unit you want to put your thane in. Then spend the points elsewhere. Have you thought about dropping the cannon for some thunderers? I love thunderers. but you will need to find 15 points somewhere...
