Hey guys, I have finally got my hands on the dwarven mega force, and here is what I got lined up force Karak Kadrin, home of the slayer cult.

Keep in mind the fallowing:
- My lord for flavour reasons should not the defensively tooled up, but more offensively, wich is not that easy to do, I am open to suggestions.

Lords & Heroes

Dwarf Lord @ 306 pts
Great Weapon
-MRoKragg The Grim, RoCleaving, RoFury
Talisman
- MRoSpite, RoLuck
Oath Stone

Dragon Slayer @ 125 pts
Hand Weapon
-MRoAlric The Mad, RoFury

Dragon Slayer @ 125 pts
Hand weapon
- MRo Smiting, RoSpeed, RoFire


Core

20 Warriors @ 205 pts
Shields
Full Command

15 Warriors @ 155 pts
Great Weapons
Musician

12 Quarellers @ 161 pts
Greatm Weapons
Musician


Special

19 Hammerers 302 pts
Shields
Full Command
RoBattle

15 Slayers @ 165 pts

15 Slayers @ 165 pts

15 Slayers @ 165 pts


Rare

Goblin Hewer @ 130 pts


Should I ditch a unit of slayers and get some slayers pirates? I own the models, and like them alot, but I can seem to find 255 pts to fit them in (-165 would mean 90 pts), So I am open to suggestions on this as well.

Havent played with slayers for quite a long time but as far I can see, a unit of slayer pirates only do good as you lack a bit firepower.
I know you said it should be a offensive lord, but if you want him to survive just for a while, atleast give him a rune of stone. Im sure it would help it a lot and compensate for the shield.
I would also recommend using the master rune of swiftness for atleast one of your dragon slayers. Need to take advantage of all their attacks.
But else I think your army looks pretty solid. You could consider swapping the hammers for the IBs but its not a must.

Too many slayers

I know that this force is aggresive, but I think you should drop a couple of slayers.

Oh, and replace the Quarrellers with some Thunderers, they shoot more accurately and strongly.

I like the 1st list but would ditch the X-bows and grab a Organ Gun (gives you around 40 spare points). I have found machines to be decently tough if deployed in a wood line due to having to randomize hits against the machines toughness.

Why don't you include a converted BSB character with MRofGrungni and Guardian to move along with your slayer blocks.

Other than that great list and I always like to see slayer players. Not many people like the orange horde but I am very partial to them.

I love slayer pirates with the festooned with pistols rule, shoots a hurricane of destruction.

Need lots of war machines with slayers otherwise they are easily beaten, methinks.

Goblin hewer rocks, probably best artillery in the game.:spell:

I own the limited edition standard bearer, (twice may I add) but I find that I will waste that relloing ability with so many slayer units. To include him I would also have to drop that runesmith, and along with him my magical defense (any thoughts ?)

I also own the hewer, but it is the single most cheesy warmachine in the game ! hence why I don not field it. (my malakai and crew will serve for the cannon, they are unbreakable afterall ! )

I like the organ gun, but I fear I might and up with too few units and get outnumbered ?

If you guys do not think so, I will defenitly do so then.

The organ gun is actually very good, include it.

I love the goblin hewer, don't get put off by cheese. Wait till you get thrashed by Skyre...

I think you need the runesmith, slayers are affected horribly by magic.

Whoah, what a general?

Do you really want a 300pt + general figure on the table?

Just a question!

I last edition of the list doesn't include Ungrim Ironfist, as I find he takes a bit too much space. (although he as a nice fig, and a nice caracter also). I deamon slayer should be able to do what he does, whitout is wards save, and half the points.

I love the figure, and use him as a daemon slayer model most of the time.

Good list final list, I especially like the long drongs. Are sure though you'll need 3 spellbreaking runes in this sort of game? 5 dispel dices are quite a lot...

I have had a hard time managing undead armies with those 3 runes. I am used to 6 dispell dice and the wards of grimnir ^_^

If you're playing undead, take'em!

They're quite nasty - though use Rune of Fire against regenerating targets...

Undead regenerating ?

Anyway, I think I'll drop either the cannon or the organ gun, I fear my army as gone too much to shooting, I would include instead a small unit of miners, and a unit of 6-8 slayers. Alternatively, a Gyrocopter would be nice ?

Get the Gyrocopter. Its invaluable at taking out those anoying skirmishers etc that'll ruin the slayer's day.

If you're dropping anything, drop the cannon, not organ gun.

Strollaz's rune is quite nice on the BSB for marching.

@Wolf Pack: Couple of things to think about. What do you want your machines to do and can they be multi tasked?

Cannons: good for long range, character sniping, chariot poppers, no armor save. Bad against skirmishers.

Organ Gun: Medium ranged, excellent skirmisher/flier killer, decent for popping chariots, can dish out up to 10 hits per unit. Bad because less strength (harder to kill giants, chariots, uber character), allows reduced armor saves, may only do 2-4 hits per unit with a reroll.

I like to use an organ gun with some 2 BTs. BTs go after chariots/giants. In most cases I think the new organ gun is a better all around weapon than a cannon that will have to be runed up + ME to use it to its most effective manner.
