the list is good for facing gunline armies I suppose. One of the criticisms I have is with the chariots. I feel like they will just be cannon bait going up the board. They are very expensive and will go down to a single shot. If they were tiranoc, it may not be so bad though. Also, I think some white lions would play out well against dwarves. They are still pretty solid in combat but are far more survivable to all that small arms fire, where the sword masters would simply just eat it. Maybe a banner of ellyrion could work out well for your DP's too. This way you could get a unit in a flanking position relatively unmolested.

Also, I think that the prince on the eagle would serve you far better than korhil. This is mainly due to the chariot being easier to kill. Also, even if you princes mount is destroyed, he is far more survivable than korhil. Good Luck! Hope you come back with a win because I'm starting to doubt how effectively we can perform vs dwarves.
