cant have more than three types of the same special choice mate, so the cannons are illegal, what are the rules for bolt throwers in the dwarf book, is it up to two for each special choice?

Also this looks boring to play against to be honest.

But thats why you borrow stuff!

Do you really need 8 dispel dice with +5 to each roll and 6 dispel scroll runes?

Your list comes out to around 3700 points, is it a 4k tournament?

Your BSB cant have a shield.

8 bolt throwers will be useless with TLoS and of 6 cannons statistically you should lose 2 to misfire each game without the rune of forging.

And I know you have alot of shooting but as soon as any CC troops reach you will fall apart.

My advice lose an ME, a runelord, some dispel scroll runes, 6 BTs and 2 cannons for some combat troops such as ironbreakers or hammerers.

GL for the tourny :)

its Ard Boyz WOC w/ Gateway, Skaven w/ 13th, Lizards and empire w/ Life magic dominated this year, so yes.

bad math will lose 700 pts to make list legal

Your BSB cant have a shield.
dont have the book in front of me, can you explain why cuz i didnt see anywhere where it said it couldnt.

8 bolt throwers will be useless with TLoS and of 6 cannons statistically you should lose 2 to misfire each game without the rune of forging.
at least this year Ard Boys terrain was trees and hills, no los issue there. and 2 in an entire game isnt bad odds IMO

And I know you have alot of shooting but as soon as any CC troops reach you will fall apart. idea is to decimate before they can get there.

My advice lose an ME, a runelord, some dispel scroll runes, 6 BTs and 2 cannons for some combat troops such as ironbreakers or hammerers.
looking for a gunline army - no CC specific troops need apply warriors are only there for the BSB and to fill points alotment.

Master Engineers x3 will help with that.

Anyway I agree on the Bolt Throwers. I'd mix in some S4 Stone Throwers if possible.

Re: BSB, the Dwarf book is one of the old ones where they can't use mundane equipment upgrades if given the BSB, sadly.
