looks tough, although people wont be happy about you playing thorek

i would drop one cannon for a grudgethrower (plus maybe a few hammerers to get a gyrocopter)

2 BTs and a cannon should be enough to deal with monsters, chariots, and other bad baddies. but neither of them really do well with rank and file troops. a grudgethrower/gyrocopter will round your shooting phase. plus the gyro will help with march blocking to slow them down even more

also try to get the points to get a musician for your warriors... it's gonna suck when you lose a round of combat because the enemy has one and you dont.

Looks solid but on a general note, I wouldn't take a special character. Apart from that I'd also not rune your warmachines, too many points wasted. In my case I just prefer to take 8 BT with just the engineer.

I really hate the gyrocopter model thats why I wanna use thorek so i can slow units down. If I liked the gyrocopter model I wouldnt take thorek.

I do like the grudgethrower but I have two cannon models.

I dont see the musician being a big miss. I have ld 10 re-rolled.

I have only spent 95pts on runes for them that would only get me one more bolt thrower. Plus I think the rune of burning is a huge help with alot of the new books

I wanted to have the rune of burning in all my BT's but with all the combinations I'd have to do, that would take me a lot of points.

Adam has a good point on a grudge thrower, it's something I always wanted to try, giving it 2 points of strenght and re-roll for the missfire... Goodness.

Just one little point - Thorek can't join the unit of warriors. He's stuck on his Rune Altar (counts as a war machine).

(Whoops, my bad - I was reading the entry for the Thane. Carry on!)
