you are trying to give him a good save while have S6 right?

Why don't you give him a great weapon, Rune of Stone and a RoResistance ? he'll be equally strong, but much tougher and cheaper too.

Thane alrick
great wepon
rune of swiftness
master rune of kragg the grim
rune of cleaving

against lower strength opponents ill switch rune of swiftness with rune of furry for more attacks.And ill probally put him with a unit of hammerers instead.Do you think i strength or a good armour save?I want him to have good strength but i didnt want him to suffer from lack of armour save.

Problem with this is that the rune of swiftness is actually a MASTER rune of swiftness, so it couldn't be combined with kragg's rune.
I also wouldn't worry too much about armor saves with dwarfs. With gromil armor, shields, runes of stone, shieldbearers, etc. It's quite easy to beef up a dwarf's already impressive armor.

personally ive found that a thane with a bog standard great weapon tends to be enough offensively assuming you can keep him alive long enough.

with this in mind my recent thanes tend to carry

Great weapon
rune of stone
rune of resistance
master rune of spite


though this guy takes up the full 75 point rune total he is an evil bugger to budge with a 3+ save which has re-rolls and then a 4+ ward save to back that up.

and with T5 id like to see most hero's get through this guy without him being a pain in the arse :shifty:


once he soaks up your foes attacks the 3 WS6 S6 attacks should be enough to wound your foe at least once per round of combat with a nice -3 modifier.

in every sence of the word, endurance.

well aye though he wil have a 5+ save he will get to re-roll this and then take a 4+ ward so even with a -2 mod he stands a good chance of surviving :sleep:

well the problem with 5 S4 attacks is that they dont gain a huge amount in comparison to 3 S6

5 S4

5 attacks

3 hits

2 wounds


3S6

3 attacks

2 hit

2 wounds


these are made from rough averages but im sure if any one would want to do exact averaging the sums about the same. the big difference is the 50 points you are paying for 2 extra attacks which unless fighting against T2 tend to do not quite as well as a great weapon thane.
