1 flank you lose your ranks then they are as good as dead. Half the units into 2 then your fine.

Iron breakers are nice, but you need so hard hitters to support them, maybe longbeards with great weapons, ten warriors isn't enough. If you drop your ironbreakers down to 20 each you should have enoughpionts to upgrade those warriors. (woot! I just realized I made commander)

A Grudgestone helps with Ironbreakers, too! I think that's what it's called.. Don't have my book handy right now, but the big stone that your Hero stands on to immobilize a unit, but take away any and all flanking opportunities for your opponent. This works perfectly in an Ironbreakers unit!! :D Plunk the unit down in a bottleneck and you're set!

Oathstone, and yes, could be useful in such a list. :)

Adding my voice, with 450+ point dwarf units, you really need an oathstone in there. Otherwise you could lose the whole thing to one good flank charge, and Dwarves aren't noted for their mobility.
