Tomorrow Iīve a game against dwarves. We play only 1000 this time because of lack of time. I expect to fight against solid warriors and perhaps a couple of warmachines, plus a unit of thunderers (at least I think that will be my opponentīs tactic...I never know).

How you judge this list?

20 pikemen full command = 250 p.

20 pikemen full command = 250 p.

5 Silver Helms with shields, standard and musician

5 Silver Helms =95 p.

5 Ellyrian Reavers with musician = 98 p.

1 Hero with barded steed, lance, heavy armour and shield

1 Tiranoc chariot =85 pts.

= 1000 pts.
(I could have made little mistakes with numbers, but thatīs it)

I could change chariot (and silver helmīs shields) for a lion mantle for the hero and a great eagle. Or change the chariot for a great eagle and some ward save for the hero.

Thoughts?

I'd like to see an eagle in there, or the heroe on a Pegasus or Eagle, it could help you out a lot with the warmachines. As for the rest of the list... Cool! :D

Nice army. Might suffer a bit against hordes or shooting or Skaven in general.

What was the bad luck? By the way, I would have commented on the list but haven't played a 1000pts game in so long that I couldn't get my head around what you'd be expecting to face! Any chance of a quick breakdown of what worked and what didn't... maybe with a brief list of what you faced (for my sake :))?

Cheers,

I´ll write the battle report. However I faced two units of warrior, plus one of rangers and one of miners. A thane guided them. I managed to charge a unit of warriors in the 2nd turn with my spearmen, and with the silver helms on the flank. I won by 5, but the unit did the break test (snake eyes). Next turn: won by 2, break test also done. Next turn: won by 4, break test also done!! Then I got charged by miners and whatever, and obviously lost.

They are hard, does dwarfs. Won yesterday with them against W-E.
Did you take the eagle or not?

Yes I took it, it was unuseful due to lack of war machines on dwarf side.
