Hello there fellow Dwarf player!

Overall your list looks pretty good. I might however suggest a few changes:

1) I would change your BSB's build into something a bit more well rounded like: Rune of Gromril, Rune of Resistance and Rune of Preservation (Immune to Poison/KB). This way you get a 1+ re-rollable armor save and are immune to things that will kill you outright and ruin your day. Personally, I prefer this build to the one you have listed as it means you take almost no damage against S4 or even S5 troops (a 3+/3++ is better than a 3+/4++ after all) and most strong combat things in WH are at S5 or S6 and this build is equal to yours against S6 and better against everything lower than that.

2) I might also suggest getting rune of resistance on the anvil because lizardmen can really ruin your day with their poison surpassing your high T.

3) Also I would definitely suggest taking at least 1 Grudge Thrower with +2 Strength and Re-Rolling Scatters (and probably with the Flaming Rune as well). This thing is just SO amazing and can even be used reliably like a cannon to defeat monsters with the re-rolling scatter.

Hope this helps,
