Welcome to Librarium Online!
I recently played a 600 point game against a dwarf army. led by a runesmith. knowing that i was playing this particular opponent i knew my magic would have no chance whatsoever so went for a combat orientated army with a vmapire with blood drinker and red fury, 35 skeletons in two units 1 of 20 and another of 15 plus konrad. my opponent had 10-15 warriors 9 or 10 miners, a slayer and a cannon. i tok down 2 of his men (the dragon slayer to konrad and a champion to my vampire) i lost konrad and 22 skeletons before i forfeited the match to my opponent. hgaving a single vampire on its own and 13 skeletons in combat with the runelord on the other side of the battlefield. so my question is this:
Does anybody have good tips for beatiing dwarfs and thier large nmber of dispel dice or am i doomed to always lose against dwarfs?
Indeed dwarves to have a large amount of dispel dice but thats about it. Necromancy can be cast repeatedly and you can get hold of some bound items as well to thin down his dispel dice. With the exception of the magic missile the spells undead have do not target units so their magic resistances and items that effect spells when targeted have no effect. So magic can work quite well against dwarves especially if you're only summoning.
However if push comes to shove, the tombblade and bloodsword can regenerate wounds and having large numbers of undead rank anf file troops can cause his units of auto-flee when combat is won. You could take a few Fell Bats or Wraiths to deal with the Cannon but careful with the Ethereal units seeing as runes count as magical (ie magical warmachines).
Ideally however you want to play bigger games as Dwarves and other elite infantry armies are harder to beat with the more basic core choices other armies get.
yeh i was gonna charge my vampire out of his unit at the cannon when he got the chance because i gave him talisman of the lycni as well. i normally only summon with my usual list but the units are tiny to start off with so i thought id try a different list becuase i was scared of dwarf dispel dice
