    Dwarves with banners

    How do my beardy chums

    hows things?

    ive been busy building up my VC army (i know, Boo Hiss) whilst my mate finalised a rather meaty dwarf throng.

    either way, all has been going pretty well. youll all be pleased to hear i have had my tail kicked on more then on occasion.

    The way my friend has been beating me is by having 2 units of warriors, and 2 units of long beards, and a unit of slayers.

    now each of the the long beards has been given runes to make them fearless (i do like a challenge):cry:

    i just wondered if long beards are actually allowed a runic standard as they are now a core choice (i know the old long beards are, just wanted to check (my mate wont let me see his dwarf book incase i see something i could exploit... he has trust issues:shifty: )

    long beards are indeed now a core choice adn may have a runic banner of up to 50points.

    they are however limmeted by only being allowed to have 1 unit of LB's to every unit of warriors.


    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.

    that's what he has, 2 units of warriors, and 2 units of longbeards, and yes, they can have a rune of courage(30 pts) that makes them immune to fear and terror.

    Woah, uber competitive friend! I think in a game situation he has to let you see his dwarf book if you want to clarify something.

    check the rules for useing runes. specific rune combinations cannot be repeated in a list. so a single rune of courage could not be used for both units of LBs. however a rune of courage combined with another rune on one banner and a single rune of courage on another would be allowed.

    his army list is light on shooting (a dwarf strength to the surprise of many of my opponents) and slow to maneuver. focus your assaults on hitting one flank VERY hard and holding up his center and other flank with throwaway undead or raised undead.

    cheers

    Thanks for the replies folks

    finally figures the way to beat his fearless units.

    pointless attacking on all flanks, cos his boys are just gonna sit there.

    he started taking buggermans ranger, whom are fearless, so its just a matter of killing off buggerman and making the unit run as it normally should. (plus he fields it so far up, its got no chance of support :rolleyes: )

    The other longbeard unit, usually holding his dwarf lord on sheild bearers (fearless with the rune) is a pretty tricky customer, but as long as i can divert his slayers (guarding unit) into ghouls, then i can get my giant, grave guard or skeleton unit (with wrrght lord or thrall or something meaty) into it, with wolves on the side, kill of the body of his unit, and keep the rest there til the end of the game.

    one point i like, is that if he takes all combat, thanes and longbeards, then i can take apart most of his units with some well places spells.

    works a treat.

    cheers again
    Craig
