Alright, this is the 1500 point version of my 500 point army that is currently being built. The basic theme is Pirates, so I'm keeping it piratey...if that's a word.

Thane Ghaal Crowhammer – 125
w/ Hand Weapon, Gromril Armor, Pistol, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Fury, Rune of Striking, Rune of Stone

CORE
Dwarf Warriors – 123
w/ 12 Shields, Hand Weapons, Heavy Armor, Veteran, Musician

Dwarf Warriors – 135
w/ 12 Great Weapons, Hand Weapons, Heavy Armor, Veteran

Thunderers – 155
w/ 10 Dwarf Handguns, Light Armor, Hand Weapons, Veteran, Musician. Veteran with Two Pistols.

Thunderers – 155
w/ 10 Dwarf Handguns, Light Armor, Hand Weapons, Veteran, Musician. Veteran with Two Pistols.

Longbeards – 171
w/ 12 Shields, Hand Weapons, Heavy Armor, Veteran, Musician

Special
Dwarf Cannon – 120
w/ Engineer*, Brace of Pistols*, Rune of Reloading

Dwarf Cannon – 120
w/ Engineer*, Brace of Pistols*, Rune of Reloading

Ironbreakers – 168
w/ 12 Gromil Armor, Hand Weapon, Shield, Ironbeard.

Rare
Dogs of War, Ogre Maneaters – 288
Heavy Armor, 3 Cathayan Longswords, 3 Brace of Handguns

Total - 1500

I am also considering switching the Ironbreakers to 15 Slayers. I like both options there, so I'll probably play test it some to see how each works out. I'm not sure if the Ogres are legal, but since the Longsword is one handed, I think it can go with the pistol. Those are pretty much there for flavor and to give me a little bit of speed. They seem more fitting to my theme than a Gyrocopter, and I like the conversion possibilities there.

I'm just not sure about how MSU tactics will work with dwarves. The usits are a tad small to resist a hard charge, so you will have to be on the offensive, and manuver with great skill, because dwarven manuverability will be a huge liability.

Where are the slayer pirates? they are the most piraty unit in the game!

Iron breakers do not fit in with a sea themed army, they'll rust away thier 2+ save ^_^

Some quarellers would be a nice addition instead of the thunderers, can't rely on gun powder in wet and humide warfair.

You cannot have the same rune combination of your cannons. This is the rule of pride.
They also would benefit from a rune of forging instead of the rune of reloading really.

I had an alternate list with 16 Slayers instead of the Ironbreakers, so I'll probably go with that (are there any official models for Long Drong's Slayer Pirates?).

Forgot about the Rule of Pride, so I'll switch the second to Rune of Forging.:yes:

Yes, there are official models for the pirates: they're pretty good.
And you'll find the rules on the Games Workshop website in Dogs of War.
