I have the dwarf army box and the battle for skull pass box. This gives me plenty of warriors, longbeards, quarrellers, thunderers along with 2 cannon and an organ gun.
Now it's time for me to get some regiment boxes. This is where things get expensive. I'm trying to decide on slayers, hammerers or ironbreakers. Since I'm very new to dwarfs, I'd like to hear your opinions on what my next purchase should be. I face a decent number of cavalry opponents.
You can make Ironbreakers and Hammerers from a box of normal dwarf warriors. I think this is the best next step if you're looking to field an elite unit
Definitely don't buy any Hammerers, Irobreakers or Slayers now... If you have read this issue of White Dwarf, GW is going to be selling them (hopefully updated models in boxes of 5) and you will have a choice of a box for $20 for 5 regular models or for $22 for 2 regular, Champion, Musician and Standard Bearer. Pretty much per rank...
I also recommend pre ordering plastic Miners that are going to be out by the end of the month (or the very beginning of the next month). 20 new models for probably $35-40. Also, don't get a Thane/Lord model and wait a bit and pre order a box with a Battle Standard Bearer and a Lord/Thane for $20.
I would consider getting a gyrocopter. It sounds like you've got a good core force with plenty of units of dwarfs, so perhaps a little speed wouldn't go amiss.
Also, I would agree with MasksMaster. It's probably best to see how the repackaging affects the prices and how much you would need to buy before going for any of the metal infantry. There have been rumours (or more likely wishlists) going around about new sculpts for these, but I think it's just a repackage since GW are trying to cut down on the number of blisters. It's probably still best to wait a bit, though.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

Rumor over here also has it that Slayers will be coming in plastic, which has me excited
If they do release a more economically feasible slayer box, I will take the 35 slayers I have already and add up into a Slayer Army
Don't bother having anything more than meaningless small talk on this forum, the moderators won't allow it
I say hammerers, converted from normal warriors. Stubborn is excellent for stopping knightly charges, while the armor means you won't give away VP for units destoyed too quickly.
Make sure you have a BSB if you'll recieve a ton of cavalry charges.

I guess this is what will be happening to the Hammerers, Ironbreakers and Slayers...

The models will be the same, but new per rank policy will help save money.
What we used to pay: 10 models with no command for $45 -> $90 for 20 models with no command -> $105 for 23 models including command.
What we will be paying: 5 models 3 of which is command $22 -> 5 regular models $22 -> 3 boxes of 5 regular + command that will give 20 models with command = $82.

Hm, while I'm looking at the UK prices I don't see much of a difference. The "new" ironbreakers are at £12 a box of five (both normal and command sets). The "old" three per blisters are £7 with £8 for the command. To make a unit of fifteen, with the "new" ones it'll be three boxes for £36 (two normal, one command). The old costs £36 as well (four normal blisters, one command blister). I fail to see the point other than allowing people to get five models per box, which I believe when you work it out - five models for £12 is actually more expensive that five in blisters (ok, it be six for £14 but work it out per ironbreaker it's cheaper this way I believe (I suck at maths) ). I fail to see the real advantage to this "new" set, other than the full rank in one box.
