This Dwarfen army is based off of the armies of Sparta, as per an inspiration I had after seeing the movie "300", which I have to say is a remarkable movie. The Pikemen are here to stay, and no gunpowder weapons of any kind will be used. I am limited to what they had in ancient Greek times.

Heroes
1 Spartan Captain (Thane): (71)
- Gromril Armor
- Shield
- Great Weapon
The commander of this one force. He is an honorable warrior who has proven himself worthy of being one of the king's captains for a portion of his army.

1 Battle Standard Bearer (Thane): (140)
- Gromril Armor
- Battle Standard
- Master Rune of Grungni
The battle standard of Sparta reminds everyone of the Spartan law: fight to the death. It also reminds them of their shield defensive tactics to minimize casualties from missile fire.

Cores
28 Dwarfen Hoplites (Warriors): (262)
- Heavy Armor
- Shields
- Standard Bearer

28 Dwarfen Hoplites: (262)
- Heavy Armor
- Shields
- Standard Bearer

28 Dwarfen Hoplites: (262)
- Heavy Armor
- Shields
- Standard Bearer

28 Dwarfen Hoplites: (262)
- Heavy Armor
- Shields
- Standard Bearer

28 Dwarfen Hoplites: (262)
- Heavy Armor
- Shields
- Standard Bearer
These short hoplites make up the phalanx. They are all in a 4-rank line across the battlefield.

Specials
2 Crude Ballistas (Bolt Throwers): (90)
These are very archaic machines, consisting of firing large bolts. It will be good for killing monsters.

1 Catapult (Grudge Thrower): (105)
- Rune of Accuracy
As catapults were used in the time (I think), and it adds in some anti-cavalry support.

Rares
24 Pikemen: (284)
- Pikes
- Heavy Armor
- Standard Bearer
- Musician
These pikemen are allied to the Dwarfs for the awesome Spartan models. They also add in more numbers to the force. They will make up the center of the phalanx.

Total: 2000 points

it looks like a cool list, but you need about 130 more dwarfs.

How would I be able to get 130 more Dwarfs in 2000 points?

If I ever plan to make a 3000 point army, I will add in more dwarfs.

Don't worry. ;) I'd be crazy not to.

If I increased to 3000, I would upgrade the Thane to a Lord, add in two more BTs or another GT, and use the rest for warriors.
