Just a few newbish questions:
1. Can runes can be combined differently and not count as duplicates (eg one weapon with Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Swiftness and a weapon with Rune of Cleaving, Rune of Swiftness, Rune of Cleaving).
2. Do dispel bonuses from runes such as The Master Rune of Valaya Stack with the dwarfs passive +2 to dispel.
3.Is the gyro-copter's Steam gun move and shoot or is it move or shoot (or something else?)
Thank you for your time for reading and (hopefully:)) posting replies.

1. No, as the order in which the runes are added does not matter, you may not have the same rune combination on different runic weapons.

2. Yes - all bonus always stack

3. Can't shoot if the Gyro Marches, can shoot otherwise, so limited to 10" move to shoot it - that's how it is right now if I'm not mistaken, which is complete rubbish. D:

1) you could however omit one rune or change one rune to a different rune and it would be allowed ie one with 2x Cleaving 1x Swiftness one with 1x Cleaving 1x Swiftness and something else.

2) yeah gives you +4 to dispel combined with extra dispel dice from Runesmiths/anvil gives you an excellent magic defence except against ultimate force

3) as Kalandros says

This may be pointless to point out right now, but the Rune of Swiftness is a Master Rune. As such, you can only have one in your entire army.

Unless you were referring to the Rune of Speed, which gives +1 Initiative.

To be honest i just chose 3 random runes but thanks for reminding me of that. Please correct me if this is the wrong place to post but any ideas for good rune combos?

You're best off in the tactics sub-forum, but my personal favourite for the Lord is:

Great Weapon - Master Rune of Kragg, 2 * Rune of Fury (6 S6 attacks), coupled with Shieldbearers and a Rune of Stone (1+ AS) and the Master Rune of Spite (4+ Ward).

Sounds pretty nasty although I personally don't see too much honor in the shield-bearer upgrade (3vs1 is hardly fair) at least in a challenge but that's just me putting honor over playability

Master Rune of Kragg the Grimm + Rune of Fury + Rune of Snorri Spanglehelm is actually better (more hits) in most cases, just to be picky :)
