I like the first list more. That's a pretty nice sized Dwarven Horde! But why 13 miners?

I'm not much of a fan of Quarrelers, but that's more personal preference.

Ooops Damn army builder - it doesnt coount the champiton when doing unit size!
Should be 14 then when the Thane with RoBrotherhood is added its 15 (3x5)!

The idea of not putting too much black powder in it is that its an expiditionary force having just reclaimed the anvil form Karak Azgul, black powder isnt used as much under ground as the smoke lowers visability!
I have a plan for the Anvil to be carried aloft by the throne beare models from Thorgrim Grudgebearer!

Almost identical armies - mainly differentiated by runes.
I prefer the 2nd option but only marginally

1) 2 Bolt throwers with very effective runes. lets hope you play against WE
2) You could reduce the size of the Miner unit and the number of runes on characters and use the extra pts for
3) A Dragon slayer and/or an additional Warmachine - it depends on how you play of course.
4) 1 unit of thunderers and 1 unit of quarrellers gives you more flexibility in tournaments.

I'm probably wrong but isn't the next GT using 2250 pts?

No I'm planning long term for the next UK GT!
Sorry - should probaby have mentioned that somewhere!

Unless the UK one is going to follow the US one......

In which case what to add?
