Runes of stone have no effect when stacked, so 3 still equals the same effect as 1. Also you cant put runes on a flame canon, organ gun, or gyrocopter. If your planning on drawing the enemy to you, i would throw in a few bolt throwers, cheap and good fire power. Also you lack any magic protection besides the normal +2 for dwarves, a runesmith with a dispell or 2 would be very nice.

I usually dont bother with magic. IMO, anti-magic is the same as magic, and deosnt fit in with the fluff of a dwarven army.

many runes can have their effects stacked, but the RoStone is the only rune that can be used in the same combination, and its effect does not stack. Im almost 100% sure that this is correct, but ill check my book tonight.

RoStone:

(First eight words) Multiples of this rune have no further effect.

I hope that doesn't bread any copyrights or rules here on WarSeer. Sever14 is correct... having more than one is quite pointless.

I would also look into more shooting. With this army, you are going to be charged and probably not doing much charging yourself. Dwarfs are slow, but can make it up with softening enemy units with shooting.

I have plenty of shooty dwarf models, but i rarely use them. When i do, i only ise 1 or 2 squads of shooters at the most, as i like to get as many WS4-5 S5 dwarven infantry as possible. I usually rely on heavy artillary (grudgethrowers, cannon, flamecannon) for support, but yes, a squad or 2 of shooty dwarven infantry can be very useful, though i find it slightly unfluffy

i've given the infantry units a rune of battle, as it is cheaper than a 4th full rank, and has the same effect. Can that many units have the rune of battle, or not?

Im pretty sure that the Rof battle is just like all other runes, so that means that you cant have the same combination of runes on a stnd, and also warrior units cannot have magical banners, only longbeards and other elite troops.
