Master Engineer (General)

23 Longbeards - Full Command, Rune of Slowness x 2, Shields

21 Hammerers - Full Command, Shields

3 x Gyrocopter

Cannon - Rune of Forging

Organ Gun - Rune of Burning, Rune of Accuracy

Organ Gun - Rune of Accuracy, Rune of Forging


General Plan - blast the crap out of everything and mop up with my two blocks of dwarfs. Thoughts? I know it's very light on heroes.

Okay, flaming attacks... seriously i feel like there are more units immune to flaming attacks than there are that suffer from them. Am I crazy?

Dwarves arent a hero-centric army, so you arent crazy. If this was like an empire list I would have problems with it. Honestly 1500 pts isnt all that fun. Its a good start but you should consider a 2000 pt army with 2 characters at least.

Tons of stuff has regen or can at least get it through magic. I've only got the one Rune of Burning anyway.

Would really like some more feedback on this list. Here's some questions to get you thinking.

Can I get away with just having a single naked Engineer as my General? It does free up lots of points for other stuff (I find that people often tend to sink way too many points into Heroes/Lords that end up doing nothing)

Should I drop a Gyrocopter and a couple of Hammerers to include a Runesmith? I'll take a Spellbreaking Rune x 2 and will give armour piercing for the Longbeards, could be very handy.

Would this list be a problem for your army? Tell me why.

Would this list be a pushover for your army? Again, tell me why.

Thanks :)

at 1500 you can use an engineer general, but that means he isnt gonna be in a main unit.

a runesmith is good if you have the pts.

I think a good thing to do would be to take 1 organ gun, not 2. then the other points spend on characters to do some damage, give you buffs and so on.

I dont play at 1500 pts but this army is a little sticky
