Default Unusual But Effective Dwarf Strategies

ok ok ok we all know about dwarfs. the old slow guys with no cavalry and huge beards. The truth is i love this army. rich in character and with rock hard infantry and a huge amount of firepower.

the problem is. whenever my dwarf army is played the same thing always ends up happening. the bigger enemy army ends up charging my poor stunties and doing 2 or 3 on 1 combat.

i need some help with dwarf tactica

but heres one thing thats worked for me


take 3 or 4 organ guns and blast the enemy with them. organ guns r cheap, and can cause a large amount of wounds. this usually works, it certainly reduces amount of enemy troops effectively enough. however in a matter of time the enemy realize the danger and charge in with heavy calvary or something and kill my crew. OR the organ guns misfire and kill themselves

well, dwarfs, i've versed them with my dark elves, oh god. I took a beating,. his list, looked slightly like this:

He had a gyrocopter and an organ gun, a stone thrower, 2 cannons and 2 bolt throwers. Plus he had 3 units of thunderers in a line at the front rank, plus 2 small units of warriors, each with a thane inside.

I had a varing list, i wont go into it, but he killed, before i got to his line, one of my cold one knight units, my 2 dark riders, plus my cold one chariots, along with one of the units of warriors. He'd also wounded my hydra badly, taken a few warriors with him, and diminished my executioners. When i finally slammed into him, i got a fare way indeed, but eventually repelled, it turned out to be a minor victory...

For the benefit of druchii playersd, shadowblade turned out to be essential, robbing him of his front line, and harpies, despite being weak, took a few artillery crew with em.
