    a) they are awesome on the battle field - great at shooting and rock hard in combat

    strengths - they have a high toughness and armour save
    weaknesses - low movement, ballistic skill and initiative

    c) runes are our version of magical items (or wargear in 40k)
    - we place them on our normal weapons, armour, war machines, etc. and they each convey a different ability (e.g. strike first, 4+ ward (invunerable) save, 2+ to hit on one roll per game etc.)
    - this is all explained fully in the army book

    hope this helps and anything else u want to know i am happy to answer

    The fluff is that they were one of the greatest races,They lived in hold that were made out of the rockfaces and delved deep into the mountain. They are excellent miners and have a insaciable (sp?) thirst for gold. They lived in a golden age, trades with other races prospered but they got into a huge war with the Hes known as "The war of Vengance" (or war of the beard to the elfs). After this they began to seclude themselves and distrust elfs but when the Polar gates colapsed and chaos entered the world they started to have problems.

    Their strongholds were attacked by Greenskins and ratmen (Skaven), during this peroid they lost many of their holds to these and natural desasters (sp?) ie earthquakes. But they fought and they refused to give in. Now days they are one of the toughest forces to break, they watched their homes destroyed and overrun. A bunch of greenskins ain&#39;t gonna make them run.

    They hate all greenskins, and have a book called the Great Book of grudges, here they record all grudges the have against all races. One day they hope to strike out and avenge each wrong doing to their race.

    Dwarfs are the best smiths in the world they make the best weapons, armour. Sigmar&#39;s hammer and the Runefang&#39;s of the Empire was Dwarven work.They make weapons and armour engraved with runes. These runes trap magic inside and thus makes the item magical. The dwarfs are made to survive and this they will, but they are a dwindling race.

    Anyway, I hoped this helped, if I can be of any more service just call and I&#39;ll come running.

    Flamebeard is correct, we were the BEST race but have slowly dwinded and am now a small but tough race

    they are no that hard to paint, only hard part is detail on their small area

    The current book is still in use. I don&#39;t think they&#39;re going to redo any army books til at armies are done.

    dwarves do better at higher points as we can take more war machines and thunderers so i would suggest 1000pt. as the lowqest really playable but good luck and if u need any help, just ask
