View Full Version : 2500 point Dwarf

01-08-2010, 01:16

I started playing Warhammer Fantasy around 12 years ago. Dwarves were my first faction as I have always liked Dwarves the best out of all fantasy races. However, they ended up not being my favorite play style. I thought they were too static. So while I loved the lore, models and general "feel" of the army I moved on. Dark Elves became my mainstay along with Beastmen.

I played it regularly for many years but about 5 years ago I joined the military. Through multiple moves, deploying to Iraq, and training I kind of stopped playing. I recently saw that 8th came out and bought the book, which started a burning desire to get back into the game. And with the random charges I feel that a Dwarf Army can bring together both my love of Dwarves along with my love of tactical maneuvering.

Here is my first attempt at a list. I haven't played in a while (though I did read some battle reports on here to help me construct) so let me know where you think I am in error. I realize that a lot of lists get posted here and it gets tiring answering all of them so I appreciate all responses.
