That's pretty similar to my standard list at 2k. Artillery is good but do you really need 2 runes or penetration? Is the 40-50 points for the extra point of strength (considering whatever is under the hole is going to be wounded on 2+ at str8 unless it's a monster)?

Although I love the idea of slayers, I find mine die very quickly as my opponents see them as easy kills (no armour) so they tend to get pounded by missile fire. Are you planning on marching across the battlefield with them? I play as gunline so slayers are too much of a liability, I prefer another nice block of sturdy warriors. Maybe ironbreakers to hold your flank.

The plan is to advance slowley but surely whilst the artillery and thunderers wittle down the enemy units for the infantry to reach and to break, and use the anvil to get the charges when needed and the time is right. The runes of pen are half the points you have said (sorry dont mean to sound offensive just trying to avoid saying the actuall points cost as the mods are allways watching :shifty:). I see what you are saying about the slayers however I think im gonna give em a go still (as i got the models for cheap :D) and because there is something about naked dwarfs with mohawks that just shouts awsome to me :p, but I definatly see where you are comming from.
