Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok my mate has just started lizard men and i have just started dwarves, we are having a 2,000pts battle. My mate is using the slannmage (fat guy) and thats about all i know about his army.
I was wondering what your weaknesses are and how i can exploit them with my slow moving hairy men!
KILL THE SLANN!!!
i'll say it again....
KILL THE SLANN!!!
If you kill the slann it'll be very difficult for you to lose the game.
Shoot its bodyguard unit to peices for an easy win in combat, then chase it down, if youve got a gyrocopter make sure it gets in to this combat.
Your going to need some sturdy magic defense to stop it having its own way all game.
Apart from that you'll just need to make sure you dont get flanked as you should win most one-on-one fights.
Kill the slann...
If you can kill the Slann then you've probably won the game, but he is very difficult to kill indeed.
I would take a BSB for sure (but I guess I'd say that for any army you were playing against)
What kind of dwarfs do you play? shooty? cc? let us know so we can advise on tactics accordingly

NG Army (The Very Little WAAAGH) 6-1-0
I'm not sure about 2000 points, but at 1000 a gunline completely destroyed me.
If you get one unit capable of combat, maybe miners, and a tooled up thane, then use that to destroy his weakened slaan unit, you should do fine. Also the gyrocopter idea is pretty good.
Have a killer unit of Ironbreakers/Hammerers with a kitted out Lord and BSB with the Master Rune of Challenge. This means (if I remember correctly) that you can make his slann unit charge into your killer unit. The Ironbreakers/Hammerers will hold up long enough so that you can bring in a unit into his flank or a gyrocopter. You should win the combat and then you can use the gyrocopter to run him down.
SO take a Lord, BSB and 2 Runesmiths loaded with Spellbreaker Runes. The your army should have 6 dispell scrolls.
Dont wory about taking lots of expensive units, if he has a 2nd Gen Slann then he will start off with around 600 points less troops.
Hope that helps.
