i'm interested to see how this works, though your battle standard can not take a shield and be the BSB. other than that it looks good.

You could always give ur BSB that 5+ ward save.
And Definitely work in a Strollaz and MroChallenge. Both will help you with movements. Which your march of death will surely need.

hope ur empire friend isnt a cannon, crossbow, magic nut.

anything else and you should be fine (with exeption of stream tank o' doom)

i would consider dropping miners for 4 bolt throwers and some extra runes on heros (strike 1st is nice )

One of my friends play "Angry Dwarves" with an army like this. He has one cannon and 2 bolt throwers as only shooting. Rest of army stomps over to the enemy and hits it hard in the head. Being able to march 6" all the time is a very very good thing and evens out their short legs in late game. The biggest problem you might have is with mobile hard hitting armies. Hitting your fronts and sides, so position your units smart.
