I searched for this a bit but didn't find it so here goes:
I usually play wood elves, but also have some dwarfs and I was wondering if Dwarfs are good against daemons of chaos.
I'm probably wrong here but dwarfs seem quite well equipped against them with magic defence, shooting and toughness. Hope no long standing grudges against woodys stop the posts
Any opinions tactics or even basic lists appreciated.
Hope the knowledge of the dwarfs can help
as long as you have a few units immune to fear and terror or with a high unit strength you'll do fine. The best way to kill daemons is with combat res so flanking and a BSB are your friends.
Also shoot the big ones.
May the Emperor forgive you, for his servants cannot.
You'll propably even outnumber him, thats pretty rare when playing dwarfs. What point amount are we talking about, 1000, 2000?
I'd take a unit or 2 of 20 - 25 warriors, longbeard unit and personally some Ironbreakers. A banner which might come in handy against a daemon army with a lot of pink horror units, shooting spells at you would be the Master rune of Grungni. 5+ wardsave against shooting and magic missiles to all dwarf units in 6". Runes of courage on your special units, so they won't run away at a crucial moment.
Maybe a unit of rangers in terrain with their great weapons might help out in flanking them.
Mostly you will be relying on the combatres, so stack up a lot of that. Perhaps its time to bring out the nicely expensive Master rune of Stromni Redbeard. +1 combatres to all in 12".
I was hoping there would be something along the lines of "take loads of warmachines´n guns and blast the deamons back to hell (literally)"( the ). But the combat res. sounds promising, thanks
It was 1000 btw, should have said it in first post.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned big units and magic resistance. You will need MR to help you stop the spells that these armies can level at you. Dispel dice just aren't enough.
The last is debatable as the spells that demons unleash are, I would argue, the most effective artillery in the game...
