    Overkill?

    You're playing a pitched battle, 2300 points.

    Your opponent shows up with a dwarf army consisting of Thorek ironbrow, Malakai's goblin hewer, a flame cannon, and two normal cannons. His core choices are three units of thunderers and the other two special choices are slayers.

    How would you, as a dwarf player, deal with an army as sick as this?:x

    Ciao

    well stonehambey, I must say that if I came up against an army like that I'd be most unimpressed. Too much shooting can make a game pretty dull, and in this instance I think I would concede and leave the room without even setting up my troops!

    In all seriousness though, I think that you could put up some kind of fight against such an army. Perhaps an army with very heavy magic could get the job done, or fast troops maybe even with ward saves too (such as a brettonian army) could do well. In all honesty though, it would be very difficult to fight against!!

    Well I would do this:

    " hey guy, I win. "

    " Waaah ? my army is invincible, I ownzor you ! "

    " Sure you do, but unless you show me a Dragon Slayer or Deamon Slayer in your army list, you have too many units of slayers in your list, therefore I win by technical knockout. "

    As simple as that.
    Best Regards,

    Hahaha, i totally forgot abt that. ok so drop some slayers and add your fave special choice

    This is not a list i'm planning to make or have ever seen, the main point i was getting at was how would a dwarf army deal with something like this??

    My main army is lizardmen so i would take a slann and roll all my spells from the lore of life

    master of stone, wood, howler wind and rain lord would all give this army problems. As would my scouts/chameleons.

    But i'm pretty new to dwarfs (hence the rookie mistake in the idea) and so i wouldn't know how to approach an army like this with the little guys

    Yup, I'd put up the white flag for this one... or I can give him a kicking back!

    He isn't the only one with an army known as "Wall O' Lead!". (I got one too )

    I'd just slash that persons car tires before they wake up so they won't show up for the game.

    I didn't think of that one... (writes it down in his book of grudges, under easy way to settle a grugde)

    Well magic could be one way (although thorek alone brings 3 dice, so 7 against you)

    I would think that a highly mobile army/skrimish would be able to deal with this list. (wood elves come to mind, but lizardmen also.

    Terradons will save your beacon, so would scouting and cameleon skinks (very sneaky units)

    Well, I'd just take a mega cheesy list for dealing with this. How about skaven list with millions of jezzails?

    well they got the jist of it, skirmisher and flyers will decimate the war machines.

    I dun play dwarves but isn't the hewer only for slayer armies or is it a special character?

    if you chose to go the magic route just OD on skink priests and a 2nd gen slan or sumthin. What;d I'd do (as well as lore of life them to hell ^_^) is a nice DOOM AND DARKNESS! from the lore of death coupled with a panic spell to roll his gun line away.

    The hewer can be used in normal dwarf armies as well as slayers... the rules are in the Storm of Chaos campaign book.

    It can also be taken in an Empire army as well, it counts as a regiment of the renown.
