View Full Version : 1500 Competitive Dwarf List. Help!

02-07-2009, 19:57
A friend of mine is having a hard time making a competitive dwarf list for 1500. He has so far run mostly a gun line and had little success. People would run him over.

The typical list is the following

12 thunderers
12 quarellers
10 Iron Breakers
15 Warriors
1 Thane w/ 1+ armor
2 Cannons
1 Master Engineer
1 Runesmith
1 Organ Gun

Is there any advice to help make things more competitive. Just so you know, 1 hydra or 2 stegs at 1500 is not uncommon where he and I play.

I would say that he simply needs more melee units to stop the enemy from running him over.
Also tell him to change his second cannon into a unit of hammerers, or if he wants to keep it war machines then bolt throwers. One cannon is enought, especially with an organ gun

He coucld also try fidling with the runes that he gives to his various dwarfs.
If he is losing because he is getting flanked etc.. tell him to bunch his units up more so that you can support the units. Good deployment is really important for Dwarfs because they dont move very well. Also if speed is his problem, change the organ gun for a gyrocopter

I hope it helps
