So here is a 2k pt list I am planning on using tomorrow; I wanted to see what people think because it has been a while since I ran with my dwarfs.

(all units have normal command group)

Dwarf Lord:
-Shieldbearers
-Great Weapon
-Shield
-Rune of Fortitude
-Rune of Iron
-Rune of Resistance
-Rune of warding x2
-Attached to unit of 15 hammerers.

Thane:
-Battle Standard Bearer
-Master Rune of Fear
-Attached to unit of 25 Ironbreakers
-Ironbreakers have Rune of Stoicism

Longbeards x20:
-Great Weapons
-Shields
-Ancestor Rune x2

Dwarf Warriors x20:
-Shields

Thunderers x10:
-only unit with out command group ( I never take command groups on shooting units because I figure once they get into combat they are done for anyways)

Grudge Thrower:
-Engineer
-Rune of Accuracy

Gyrocopter

I realize this is a little rune heavy, and some people might think that's cheap, but my opinion is that runes are what dwarfs do really well and we don't have any magic.. so take as many as you want :)

its an interesting list.

Meaning it a elite close combat army. You only have 1 war machin and 1 shooting unit. It looks fun to play since its not what most ppl would expect when they play dwarves. Fear with stoicism with 2 inronbreaks is a nice touch.

Let me know how it goes. I dont have much criticism, except that if you play a shooty army, you would be out shot and have to do the marching instead of the enemy marching to you. Also a little low on magic defense. but see how it goes.

I'm not 100% sure what army my opponent will be bringing, but I think it might be beastmen, so that's why there isn't a lot of shooting troops :) (there is a chance he might bring WE, in which case I would really be in trouble).

A non-shooty Dwarf army now thats interesting you are going to have to use your Gryocopter pretty well to stop him marching and to get the first charge in if you can.

You thought about the MR Challenge?
