Well 1 yr ago i stopped playin dwarves and started playin 40k alot but cause i was usin space marines they reminded me 2 much like dwarves but in giant form so is said ok lets just go back to dwarves cause they were more fun the one problem was this....................................................................... ........... i only had 400ts and my friend challenged me to a 500pts agains 400pts battle (which he outnumbered me by 4:1 and u will c why l8r) so me being me said ye bring on the greenskins (i had a grudge 2 settle against his greenies for killin my dwarflord with a black orc warboss usin a killin blow
The battle will be posted l8r on but here was my army:
hw, ga (R o stone) and a gw
74pts (and a total killin machine in these games)
14 dwarf warriors (snorris guard)
full command (champion Thengis ironfist)
shields, ha and hw
151pts (the one unit i can trust 2 stay put)
10 dwarf warriors (the beardlings)
shields, ha and hw
after 1 comment i will add the battle report (which contains abit of a fluff)
Im always 2 steps a head and one step behind you!
Your mind is a maze and only you have the map. (I lost mine years ago.)
You may want to edit that to proper English before DavidVC04 comes along ^_^

Now that THAT is out of my system:
throkkenn: I think you might be better combining the bolt thrower and the small unit of warriors into 1 half decent unit of quarrelers/thunderers. A single bolt thrower is not all that reliable or damaging, especially against greenskins. And you could stand to beef up the main unit a little also.
In 500ish points battles shooting is very deadly, and Dwarves can be a very shooty army. I'd say you have a better chance of kicking some Orc tail with a gunline than you do in close combat.
I know you already have these models, but if you wanna, getting some Thunderers or Quarrellers will help greatly, as kooshlord stated. A Thunderer with a shield is the same in close combat as a regular dwarf warrior, too (unless the new book did something to ranged Dwarfs).
I've often been tempted to field blocks of 20 quarrelers or thunderers, put them on a hill in two ranks, and then reform just before combat. But I think that would get boring relatively quickly...
