I'm not quite sure if I wan to take out the Hammerers or not.

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

I like your lord. You still have a hero choice left i would use that on a slayer hero. At this point it looks like you can't decide between a gunline or a normal army. If you want to have a more combat oriented list i would suggest that you take that slayer hero and a unit of slayers and maybe some miners for disrupting the enemy/taking out war machines.
Ditch one of the cannons.

If my math isn't wrong, some point costs are odd... the lord should be 291, while the master engineer 120 (but maybe you forgot to mention that he carries a GW and an handgun?).

On the "tactical" part:

- I don't like too much the MroGromril on the Master engineer, unless he's going in one of the fighting units (which would be even worse :D). I'd save 64 points leaving him naked and assigning him to a cannon, entrenching the organ gun (which usually is more exposed).

- A fighty dwarf list should include the MRoChallenge, and maybe an oath stone. I'd save some points on the lord, something along these lines: MRoGromril, a normal great weapon and the MRoSpite. This saves another 70 points, enough to squeeze in a thane bearing the MRoChallenge.

- Two cannons are nasty, but for the same price you may field two bolt throwers with engineers... but here's a matter of personal taste.

- The rune of dismay never worked for me, I find it too much a "hit or miss" piece, i never trust it too much.

Just my two () cents, of course.

yeah, I forgot to mention GW, and Brace of pistols for ME.
I'm just tired of having my Warhmachines being sacked. So That's why I spent some points on ME.
2 Cannon is stricktly because I don't want to cough up another $60 something for 2 Bolt Throwers.
Dismay, and Challenge. I'm messing around with those two to see which one I like better.

I tried that same Lord set up last game. He got stuck in a challenge and spent 3 turns to kill an Ogre Tyrant. So I'm gonna try a little more hitty lord, and see how that works out.

Also I'm considering taking out the unit of Hammerers, then add a Thane with Oath Stone, MroChallenge, and unit of 10 Slayers.
