Ok so I'm excited. The Lord has 6 wounds! 6!! 1+ armor, wounds on a 2+ unless magic armor then 3+ and your minus one to hit me.

Rune lord has a 2+, tough 6 with 4 wounds. On a 4+ takes an enemy power die and makes a dispel die ( every turn) and has a super scroll, on a 4+ when used the enemy forgets the spell. Grants his unit MR2 and armor piercing.

Bsb has a 3+ 4++ and gives his unit a 5+ against shooting and magic missiles. Gives +3 combat Rez!! (1 naturally +2)

Thane always hits on a 2+. Tough 6 3 wounds and a 2+ armor.

Couldn't imagine taking warriors instead of long beards. Long beards are better weapon skill strength, immune to psyche and panic gets re rolled within 6 inches.

Gyro copters seem good for their points but essential for anti chaff.

The banner on the hammerers grants +1 combat Rez to all dwarf units within 12!
Iron drakes seem pretty good but with the nerf to dwarf made weapons not fantastic. Your most likely hitting on 5's. If you hit though shit dies, s5 ap quick to fire. Bye bye heavy cav.

I'm trying this list out tomorrow (full proxy). This list would cost about 770$ (assuming 20$ for each character)
All new models except for a couple characters.

Nice looking list. Just wondering, why you didn't put gw on the longbeards. I personals don't leave home without them. But hey that's me :) hope it goes well for you.

I'm sure great weapons are the smart choice. Just got excited about the new shield wall rule. The shields are amazing looking in the new kit. Long beards are already kinda spends. If I bought and built this list id do one unit each way and then fill the first half with whichever option if I wanted to use one option for both units. I really really like the shields but great weapons are better.

Sorry question on this why didn't you just go rune priests you don't get much more from a rune lord tbh also you should go 2 runes of iron 1 rune of fortitude and the runes to get a 4++ shield bearers great weapon. Thats Str 6, Tough 7, 6 wounds, 2+ 4++ this guy is litrally a dragon on his own minus terror lol.

i would also drop the lord and pick up 2 rune smiths and pop them in your long beards giving them armour piercing could do the same for the iron breakers with lord in and thane in hammerers with standard of vayalla for +2 to dispel (for a total of +4) and 3 rune priests scattered about one with balance and stone great weapon and 2 with spell binding and stone.

That will completely lock out your opponents magic phase and give your shield bearing units a bit more punch. love the iron drakes and the gyrocopters will guard your flanks

hope this helps.
