    Hello.

    Is my dwarf Lord any good

    Gromril Armour, shield, Handgun

    I know the Handgun may be a waste of points but I wanted to be able to fire at the enemy as it advances towards the unit my Lords in. Seeing as the Lord has high BS!
    I think lol

    Runes

    Rune of Stone (( armour save now 2+ ))

    Master Rune of Spite

    Master Rune Of Alaric the Mad

    Rune of Might

    Against Elves and such ( if there not using a dragon ) I will swap my rune of might for a rune of cleaving

    Thanks For reading! any advice GREATLY appreciated!

    Ok, lets take a look:

    Gromril Armour, shield, Handgun
    Your right the handgun's not worth it. If you want to shoot them with a handgun use thunderers, you get lots more shots.

    Rune of Stone
    Master Rune of Spite
    Master Rune Of Alaric the Mad
    Rune of Might
    Some nice runes here. Rune Of Stone, ever useful (I always try to find room for one).
    Master Rune of Spite this I like, but you don't always need it sometimes 2 runes of iron is enough or just your armour save.

    And Master Rune Of Alaric the mad, I've thought about using this. If used with Rune of cleaving or two should allow me to take out those high armour knights. Although I prefer MR of Swiftness and rune of cleaving or two. But I wouldn't use rune of might unless you know you'll be coming up against a high T model. I would use Cleaving, that way your always striking at S5.

    Hope that'a helped.

    Thanks I know the Handgun is a waste of points but I am stubborn about such things as I tend to roll low numbers when firing with a unit and high numbers when rolling a single dice.

    I know rune of cleaving is good but I am expecting my dwarf to kill anything nasty in combat if my artillery dosn't get the job done. Also dwarfs have toughness 5 so it is alright to assume other races have toughness 5 characters that I want to be able to kill easier than they can kill me.

    But as I said if there is nothing with toughness 5 or more I will give him a rune of cleaving.

    Actually most armies only have T4 characters, eg Humans, elves, Skaven. The only ones I know of with T5 are Dwarfs, Chaos, VC and O&G. Also the rune of cleaving will do great, add another and you'll have S6. This is a great bonus as you'll be wounding almost anything on a two.

    Also if your coming up against someone with dragons or monsters, this is what SLAYERS are used for (I love slayers).

    He'll fear a S5 lord with MR of Alaric the mad, just as much as one that's gonna wound on a 2+. If you really want him to fear you give the lord MR of Skalf Blackhammer with 2 runes of Fury, then watch the Chaos lord wet himself.

    Erm, MR of Skalf Blackhammer = auto wounds ie no roll to wound. So that combo 6 auto wounding attacks, hitting on a 4+.

    Yeah, I suppose but your Rune of Might is only useful vs the Lord, Greater Daemon, Daemon Prince, Chariot and a Chaos spawn. Everything else has T4 or less, so my combo of MR of Alaric the Mad and 2 Runes of cleaving will let you wound almost anything on a 3+ or better.
