Ok, it's true that dwarfs aren't exactly blessed with the tactics of tactical movement etc, but they can have a few tactics. Their's do seem to be more about shooting, the basic idea is to not let anyone get around you or past you. So you use the terrain and such to protect flanks etc, tactics will vary and I will admit I mainly play shoot then combat. But I'm thinking of starting (or trying) a aggressive army.
So if you want get tactical versatility then my friend dwarfs are not for you, but if you want someone to blow holes in the opposing army and then easily be able to face up and take down the big nasties of the game then dwarfs are a good choice.
Dwarves can be tactical. to play dwarves u have to place your men in a position which allows them to help each other when trouble comes (close together would be the best seeing they can only charge six).
As u will take 98% of the charges it is good to position dwarves so that after a charge by your opponent u can flank charge them next turn.
With the combination of huges amounts of firepower your opponet will be nice and soft to smack when they charge.
With dwarves u have to be patient no sudden moves or u will be stuffed. If u think about it dwarves are a tactical army because u have overcome your weakness of movement.
Yes but that's not really tactics just tactical placing, but they do need to be placed properly and close together. But one point is if your battleline is broken there's a good chance you'll loose.
The dwarfs don't really need to overcome their movement with the relentless rule it doesn't matter, just as long as you can handle two turns in combat (which most can) then you can charge. But dwarfs aren't as tactical as other races, it's mostly where to place your units and war machines etc.
If you want tactical challange, play elves! Mostly low save, toughness and they have high movement. I see no tactical challange with dwarves, except placing them right in your employment area :blink:
