View Full Version : 1k Dwarfs against Daemons

04-09-2008, 18:24
Have a game tonight against my friends daemons. First time I'll be bringing my dwarfs.

He plays Nurgle/Tzeentch. Big unit of Plaguebearers, big unit of Horrors, a Herald for each, and then some form of support unit, most recently Flamers.

The Ironbreakers are my favorite unit, and I took the thunderers to help against his flamers and to soften things up. The bolt thrower is to try to think out a few plaguebearers, and I'm hoping the Thane can take his Nurgle Herald in combat.

I'm thinking of either castleing up in one corner, or doing a battle line with a strong infantry center. I'm on a pretty rough losing patch right now, so I'd really like a win.

I think you could really do with a Runesmith to combat the spell dice superiority a herald of tzeentch and a large unit of horrors (and potentially the Nurgle Herald as well) will give him so you might have to sacrifice a unit of thunderers to make room for one.

Your thane looks ok you just need to be careful going up against his herald of Nurgle as they can have a few powers which ignore your armour (although generally require toughness tests so a Thanes fairly safe).

Rune of Courage on the IBs banner would be a safer bet if you can spare the points as well.

Regarding the skirmishers generally an Organ Guns the best option but I cant really see you fitting one in here so I guess the increased chance to hit from Thunderers is the best option (their armour piercings pretty useless versus daemons but the increase accuracy vs skirmishers still makes them a better choice than the cheaper Quarrellers)

- Rune of Flaming
- Rune of Kragg
- 1 Thunderer unit
+ 1 Quarreler Unit
+ Runesmith

Just for added mage protection and so you dont get outranged by the likes of high elfs. Solid as is, though.
