Hi all, I'm a returning 40K player who's about two years out of the loop and I've decided to sell my skaven and try to get a small dwarf army together. Are there any Dwarf players around willing to lend me some tips on how to use the blokes? It's going to be a softer/fluff army and I'm thinking of playing a mining clan. I'm after tips on how to play them, army creation and cheap collecting.

Things I'm thinking about;

-Big (20ish) units of dwarf warriors.
-Miners
-Ironbreakers
-Flame Cannons

What other units would fit the theme? What units should every dwarf player use that I haven't considered? Any help is appreciated.

To go in line with your fluff you could take a few Heroes or a Lord with the Rune of Brotherhood, to allow them to accompany your Miners on their underground adventure.

I also think that Slayers could fit into this theme, the Miners would likely allow them to go down extremely dangerous passageways to fight deadly monsters.

bolt throwers are named as being a very dependent war machine underground.

Also Iron Breakers are the professionals doing the underground fighting.
