Default Dwarfs List 1000

I'm starting up an army of dwarf army, which will be my first step into the Warhammer world. I'll be using the models out of a Skull Pass set and a Dwarf Battalion set.

Characters
Heroes
Thane @72
- Shield
- Runic Armour: Rune of Stone
- Army General

Core Units
Dwarf Warriors @169
16x Dwarf Warriors
- 16x Shields
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- Veteran

Dwarf Warriors @169
16x Dwarf Warriors
- 16x Shields
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- Veteran

Thunderers @185
12x Thunders
- 12x Shields
- Musician

Thunderers @185
12x Thunders
- 12x Shields
- Musician

Special Units
Cannon @100
- Rune of Reloading

Rare Units
Organ Gun @120

Total: 1000

A couple notes. The Rune of Reloading is pretty much filler, but I figure it'll be useful. The musicians in the Thunderer units are there for a couple reasons: the general benefits of having a musician, a bit of a filler, and so that I could get a couple more thunderers (as the Skull Pass Thunderers have a full command, it only contains 7 standard thunderers; another sixteen 24 does not make). Advice is appreciated.

Rip it apart.

If you give your Thane gromril armour, a rune of stone and a rune of resistance, I think it is, you can have a 1/2+ re-rollable armour save for only about another 30pts..

If I were you, I'd try to fit standard bearers into your thunderer units instead of musicians.. Having +1 CR is probably going to help thunderers more than a musician will..

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply.

Since the Thane already has Gromril armour and I've already got the Rune of Stone on mine, the only thing missing from your suggestion is the Rune of Resistance. Unfortunately, thare's no way I can scrape together the estra points.
I didn't put the standard bearers in the thunderers for a very specific reason. It's really easy to capture them and get the extra victory points, whereas the musician doesn't have that reliability.

12 - strange number. May I ask why?

Anyway, on with the critique:

Nice setup, its cheap, but still efficent.

If you have spare points, I'd consider swapping him for a Thane of Pain (Master Rune of Swiftness, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Fury) Its a good all round setup, giving you 4 strength 5 attacks, striking first so that you can minimise return hits.


Core Units
Dwarf Warriors @169
16x Dwarf Warriors
- 16x Shields
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- Veteran

Dwarf Warriors @169
16x Dwarf Warriors
- 16x Shields
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- Veteran

Why sixteen? In 7th ed. ranks are now in 5. So, with this in mind, you cxould either - drop to 15 (3 ranks) or boost to 20 (4 ranks) Personally I'd knock these up to 20 (probably with one at 19 to put your Thane with...), with dwarven armour and toughness, these will be hard to shift.


Thunderers @185
12x Thunders
- 12x Shields
- Musician

Thunderers @185
12x Thunders
- 12x Shields
- Musician

24 thunderers? Perosnally I'd drop one unit, amd reduce the other down to 10. With ten, you can easily find space to deploy them, and will free up more points for other stuff.

Special Units
Cannon @100
- Rune of Reloading

Rare Units
Organ Gun @120

Good solid choices

Total: 1000
With the points I saved you from the Thunderer units gone on increasing the size of your warrior units and runing up your thane, you might not have a lot spare.

If you're using the battalion and Skull Pass box, am I right in saying you'd have miners??? If so, then perhaps you could use them as stand-ins for warriors if you dont have enough. I know you're limited by models (aren't we all) but, perhaps this could help you decide what to get in the future.

I'm don't usually critique army lists (my own aren't that great) and I'm most definately not the most experienced dwarf general - but I hope this advice has given you something to think about, if nothing else ;D

Batallion is $90 USD.

The Thane of Pain is actually identical to a combo that I came up with recently, which I planned on using in higher point games. However, I think I'll give it a shot.

Thunderers were in units of 12 since I could fit them in. It means more guns and bodies on the field. However, I can drop them for spare points. I'm definitely keeping two units, though.

Dwarf Warriors are in 16 primarily because I had about that many (only 4 more) and I can lose one model before taking out of my last complete rank and rank bonus.

Ok, I'll post up my new list.

Heroes
Thane @142
- Shield
- Runic Axe: Master Rune of Swiftness, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Fury
- Runic Armour: Rune of Stone

Core Units
Dwarf Warriors @169
16x Dwarf Warriors
- 16x Shields
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- Veteran

Dwarf Warriors @169
16x Dwarf Warriors
- 16x Shields
- Musician
- Standard Bearer
- Veteran

Dwarf Thunderers @150
10x Dwarf Thunderers
- 10x Shields

Dwarf Thunderers @150
10x Dwarf Thunderers
- 10x Shields

Special Units
Cannon @100
- Rune of Reloading

Rare Units
Organ Gun @120

Total: 1000

I'm thinking that the next step would be 1500. For that increase, I'm thinking more Warriors, some Quarrellers, and a pair of bolt throwers. What do you think of that?

once again untis of 16 are pointless. combine them into 2 units of 20 or more.

he doesn't have the points to make units of 20, i don't think he will be ranking them 4x4 he will probably have 3 ranks of 5 and 1 left over meaning after taking a casualty he still has 2 rank bonus.

Tom has it exactly - 3 ranks of five with 1 left over.

cheeseman, I'm not exactly sure what an "unti" is, but units of 16 are not at all bad.
