    Hey everyone, Im making my dwarf army, and not sure what to choose for the lord/thane.

    [2000] pts

    Runemisth[155]
    Gromril armour, Shield, MRoBalance,RoSpellbreaking
    (pretty basic runesmith)

    AND

    Lord[246]
    Great Weapon
    Master Rune of Gromril
    Rune of Resistance
    Rune of stone <---gives 0+ so it helps if hit by hard hiting units(and only 5pts)
    Master Rune of Spite

    OR

    Lord
    mix of runes of fury,cleaving and (swiftnes?????? unsure)
    gromril armor w/ rune of stone
    shield (2+ save with this)
    rune of resistance
    Master rune of spite????
    problem is this is DAMN expensive (N)




    Basically im having trouble equiping the lord and /or thane.
    1) Should i get both???
    2) Should i get a Army Battle Std(MroStromin Redbeard) if i go thane and lord????
    3) Should the Lord be better of being a hero killer of basic unit slaughterer?????
    4) Should the lord get GW and more armor runes or get weapon runes????
    5) Whats your combo for the dwarf lord?????
    Thx for your help

    both look good, i would probably try both and see, however you more likely than not will be charged, so the first looks better

    I have run some numbers on the dwarf lord with the assumptions that the guy he will fight will have WS<7 and an armor of 2+(used this as if GW or weapons runes u will want to fight the enemies big guys, knights etc). All this ignores armor as thats another topic.....

    Lord w/ Great Weapon[6]
    4 attacks
    2.6667 hits
    vs <=4T 2.2222 wounds
    vs 5T 1.7777 wounds
    vs 6T 1.3333 wounds
    (-3 modifier w/ S6 so 5+ save enemy has)
    vs <=4T 1.381 dead
    vs 5T 1.185 dead
    vs 6T 0.888 dead


    Lord w/(2x Cleaving, 1x Fury)[65] (S6, 5A)
    5 attacks
    3.33333 hits
    vs <=4T 2.7777 wounds
    vs 5T 2.2222 wounds
    vs 6T 1.6667 wounds
    (-3 modifier w/ S6 so 5+ save enemy has)
    vs <=4T 1.851 dead
    vs 5T 1.481 dead
    vs 6T 1.111 dead

    Basically for 59 extra pts u barely get any extra kills. O/c you can give different Cleaving/Fury combination even Skalf Blackhammer, however they are not very feasible.
    The runes are not worth it costwise.
    THis REALLY sucks dat runes cancel GW abilities, as the Dwarf Lord will NEVER had gud armor AND a strong attack. Gotta balance them, which really blows(vs chaos,VC lords etc)

    The first lord is better, he can survive a nuclear holocost and still smile at ya. Plus no weapon beats a great weapon cost/effectivity wise.


    give a great weapon to the rune smith as well.

    If you can squease a cheap thane, like

    Thane 72 pts
    Great weapon
    Gromil armor, RoStone

    pity this one is ilegal, it states in the master rune of gromrils rules that the 1+ it provides cannot be improved in any way.


    spambot kill tally: 79


    [16:19] <@Alzer> Arky's right though
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> I know he is.
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.
    [16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.

    A dwarf lord isn&#39;t about being a killing machine, he&#39;s about taking your time to humiliate your opponent who can&#39;t arm him.

    Though a Dwarf Lord can very well be an excellent fighter.

    Dwarfs 1/0/0 (Reset due to new rules)

    Space Marines 0/0/0 (still under construction)
