    you are trying to give him a good save while have S6 right?

    Why don't you give him a great weapon, Rune of Stone and a RoResistance ? he'll be equally strong, but much tougher and cheaper too.

    Thane alrick
    great wepon
    rune of swiftness
    master rune of kragg the grim
    rune of cleaving

    against lower strength opponents ill switch rune of swiftness with rune of furry for more attacks.And ill probally put him with a unit of hammerers instead.Do you think i strength or a good armour save?I want him to have good strength but i didnt want him to suffer from lack of armour save.

    Problem with this is that the rune of swiftness is actually a MASTER rune of swiftness, so it couldn't be combined with kragg's rune.
    I also wouldn't worry too much about armor saves with dwarfs. With gromil armor, shields, runes of stone, shieldbearers, etc. It's quite easy to beef up a dwarf's already impressive armor.

    personally ive found that a thane with a bog standard great weapon tends to be enough offensively assuming you can keep him alive long enough.

    with this in mind my recent thanes tend to carry

    Great weapon
    rune of stone
    rune of resistance
    master rune of spite


    though this guy takes up the full 75 point rune total he is an evil bugger to budge with a 3+ save which has re-rolls and then a 4+ ward save to back that up.

    and with T5 id like to see most hero's get through this guy without him being a pain in the arse :shifty:


    once he soaks up your foes attacks the 3 WS6 S6 attacks should be enough to wound your foe at least once per round of combat with a nice -3 modifier.

    in every sence of the word, endurance.

    [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.

    That looks like a good combonation although most enemy heroes will have a 2- save modifier making his save a 5+ but it looks like a good combination once i get a thane il proxy a empire captain against him and see what happens.

    well aye though he wil have a 5+ save he will get to re-roll this and then take a 4+ ward so even with a -2 mod he stands a good chance of surviving :sleep:

    Make him a lord and give him shieldbearers if you want a very high AS

    (but only in 2000pts games!) :yes:
