I am still a little bit new to warhammer, and have been experimenting with a dwarfs list. heres is an interesting one I came up with, Im not sure how well it would work though

Lord with GW, and shieldbearers 176 points

Thane Bsb with master rune of stromni Redbeard (is this rune worth it?) 190 points


22 longbeards w/ shields musician, and standard bearer (thane and lord here) 264 points
(this unit goes in the center of everything)

25 warriors w/ shields full cmd 250 points

25 warriors w/ shields full cmd 250 points

10 quarrelers w/ shields and musician 125 points

10 quarrelers w/ shields and musician 125 points


bolt thrower w/ engineer , rune of penetration 85

cannon w/ rune of forging 125 points

cannon w/ rune of forging, and rune of fire 130 points


2x gyrocopters 280 points

points: 2000
dispel dice: 4 (i probably wont be needing them)

this is gonna be for casual battles against my friends, and i decided to leave out the runesmith because my friends list dosen't have many power dice (3 or less) any suggestions?

You've got a pretty solid list there.

Just a couple of suggestions: swapping a gyrocopter for a Organ gun to protect your flanks against fast cavalry and skirmishers.
I've never realy used those expensive Master Standard runes so I can't comment on them. Let me know how it works out for you.

An alternative I use is the Strollaz rune combinded with the Master rune of Grimnir in order to give me a fighting chance against gunlines. It's also funny to see the look on your opponants face when your army is halfway the table in just one turn. ;)

looks good. might want to make the warriors into units of 20 and consider a rune of battle. Get full command squads for your warriors. I like the idea of 2 gyrocopters (i myslf use 2 grudgethrowers, which is also prety effective against horde armies)
Change the thane to a dragonslayer maybe?

IMO, you are not taking advantage of the options for your lord. Drop the shieldbearers and get some good runes.
