    I always thought that Dwarfs used their infantry for attrition melee, and therefore usually have big units, lost of ranks, standards, etc.
    This army would get demolished by Shock Melee troops, becuase units are too small to be able to take much punishment, and their won&#39;t do very much damage either.

    Btw, what is a &#39;thane o pain&#39;
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    Move your warriors around a bit until there are 16+ per unit. This will help make sure that you have a rank bonus when you get charged.

    Drop the rangers entirely and use miners instead. Miners are an AWESOME little core unit that can sneak right up behind the enemy and take out a warmachine or two. Rangers are just too many points for the few abilities that they come with.

    I would also say to drop a bunch of warriors and make sure that you have more than 10 hammerers. They are a great unit, but they are even better if you&#39;ve got around 16 of them.

    I personally prefer Iron Breakers, but hammers are also an excellent choice.

    Lastly, if at all possible, get a rune of skewering on those bolt throwers (Drop a rune of fire on one just to make sure the runes don&#39;t get jealous) so that they can cause some major carnage to something. I personally also make them a point stronger so that they are all that much more "skewery", but this isn&#39;t necessary.

    A lot of your squads are still very small, and you need standards in the units to get your combat resolution modifier. For attrition melee units, these don&#39;t look too promising:

    10 hammerers standard bearer with rune of courage musician & gate keeper 220 pts

    12 warriors w hand weapons sheilds musician & standard 115 pts

    Characters aren&#39;t bad. The units, however....

    As everyone else has been saying, your units are too small.
    For your only unit that has enough numbers, you&#39;re making them too expensive, by giving them Great Weapons, Shields, and Heavy Armor (I&#39;m assuming you gave them Heavy Armor.... if you didn&#39;t, shame on you.) Give a unit of 20 Heavy Armor, Shield, and command. Then, give a smaller unit Great Weapons and Heavy Armor. Use them like detachments, from Empire. Stagger them, and while the HA/Shld unit holds off the attackers by virtue of T4 and a 3+ AS, the GW unit can smash into the flank with S5.
    Then, drop that 15 strong unit. Use their points to bulk up the Hammerers and give the Xbowmen a musician at least. If you gave them shields, you&#39;re assuming they&#39;ll be able to halfway hold their own in combat. Not without a musician, they won&#39;t. Or a standard, but it&#39;s not a good idea to give a 10-strong unit a standard, as that&#39;s 100 easy VPs.
    Bow down&#33; Or I will unleash my zoinky army of surly crack babies&#33; End this deception&#33; I know you&#39;re hiding Martians in your head&#33; Gimme them Martians&#33; I am going to put butter on them&#33; Martians&#33; Grrr&#33; Cease your barky noise making&#33; Join my legions of darkness&#33; My frowny face empire&#33; I annoint thee&#33; I do not copulate with Twinkies&#33; Yaargh&#33;

    Since your are playing a (slow) Dwarf army I suggest you take advantage of its crazy artilery. mabe drop a bolt thrower and add a stone thrower/flame cannon.ust a suggestion.
