Umm, sorry to hijack the thread but I'd like to ask some questions if you don't mind. I also plan to start a Dwarf army and I just have a few simple questions:
1) Is 2000 the "accepted" or standard points for an army? Or is 1500? If the most common/preferred/standard amount of points for an army is 3000 or something, then it's best to simply get 2000 right? (As I may field both a 2000 point army and then take out some units and field a 1500 point army for other games.)
2) I will definitely be checking out others' army lists in the Dwarf Army forum, but for now I have this question: I love everything about the Dwarfs except the Gyrocopter. Can a 2000 point army live with no Gyrocopters? Definitely there will be Thunderers, warmachines, and miners, along with Ironbreakers/Hammerers/Longbeards, etc. Just wondering if no Gyrocopter would be a serious disadvantage? I would really loathe to paint and assemble that thing.
that list looks good, i dont know about yall but i really like miners, and i love their blasting charges, i would probably drop the unit of thunderers for a unit of quarrellers and buy the miners some blasting charges. but other than that it looks like a good list, i would try to boost up the unit sizes also if you could.
for tournaments the minimum point value is 2000 IIRC. if you have a 2000pt army you should have enough units and models to play any point lvl under it.
they gyrocopter is not need, some people dont even like it, it is very good in certain situations, like most units are, if you dont want a gyrocopter you could always go for an organ gun or a flame cannon. flame cannons especially because a panic test with just one wound its awesome.
