Hereīs my idea for a dwarf army that I spent much of the day thinking of.
I decided that if Iīd make a dwarf army, itīd be a strong, aggressive type, since the new rules support this. What dīya think of this? (yes, I do know the armyīs low on magic defense - traded the runesmith w. balance for extra muscle for now, might restore him though)

Too low on magic defence, meet a VC army 3000 points and you wont have a chanse to stop any magic

if you are playing 3000 points, why dont go for the runelord AND the dwarf lord? 2 chars that is very important to your army in diferent ways...

Itīs not a 3000 point army, itīs 2999. You donīt get two Lords for 2999, and thatīs just as well (I hate Herohammer, with half the points in characters and four units on the table...). Against the Vampire Counts, easy enough to switch two thanes for a runesmith w. Balance. And overall, magic doesnīt dominate quite as much in 2999 as in 2000.

Runic Armour [5]

GW and shields don't mix. This is not a rule violation, just wanted to point out that you pay for +1 save which does nothing unless he is on his own.




1 Thane @ 195 Pts
Gromril Armour; Battle Standard
Runic Banner [105]
Rune of Battle (x2)
Strollazīs Rune


I am fairly certain you can only have 1 Battle Rune on a standard bearer.


Otherwise a pretty solid list.



18 Longbeards @ 306 Pts
Heavy Armour; Shield, Standard; Musician
Runic Banner [50]
Rune of Battle (x2)



Same here.

Hm? The shield is just an option in case itīs needed...the character can choose which weapons to fight with at the start of the combat.

Youīre right about the rune of battle.
