the rune smiths will join the warrior units
obvisously the slayer lord joins the slayers
and the mines act as a flank charger for the slayers

im also thinking of arming the slayer lord with MRo skalf blackhammer and the rune of fury and possibly swap the miners and a rune smith for a dragon slayer and a small unit of slayers and possibly swap the slayer lord for a normal lord with MRo skalf blackhammer 2 runes of fury and rune of resistanc in a unit of hammerers

I think you may have some deployment issues. Unless you've got a lot of hills you've got almost 3 feet wide of models (with the thunderers all being 10x1), not including your cannons. This will cause some issues with deployment and maneuvers.

I would suggest dropping some of the thunderers and getting more warriors, or perhaps a unit of hammerers.

Generally, people don't like to play people with 2 cannons, so I might also suggest a gyrocopter or an organ gun to replace one of those.

is the slayer lord a good choice or is it better to get a normal dwarf lord?

I personally have never seen anyone take a slayer lord. Most of the people I've played agains have wanted a little bit more armor on their general. Slayers are really good, but they are kind of like arrow and bullet catchers.

is a dwarf lord with rune of flight and rune of furyx2 makes his weapon throwing axe and close combat weapon or is a lord with rune of krag the grim and 2 runes of fury with extra wound better

im alright with the troops now just lost on the lord....

krag the grim and 2x fury would be better, gives the weapon a bite, personally I'm not a fan of the rune of flight, a 1 shot weapon which will kill 1 model at max. Also +2 attacks sure 6 attacks is nice but at str 4 it's pants.

But like hippo says you'll have a wide frontage for deployment, maybe drop 1 unit of thunderers, upgrade 1 warrior unit to longbeards and add in 1 more war machine? grudge thrower maybe, changing a cannon to organ gun/gyro is good too, cannon, grudge thrower and organ gun is a nice amount of war machines.
