So, comments? I feel they're nice balanced armies, shame I can't fit in a flame cannon or slayers, tempted to change the 2 bolt throwers for a Flame Cannon? or a unit of 14 Slayers with std and mus.

try adding in some miners somewhere, or if you cant, just leave them on the side of the board, as if they are going to come on at some point. this makes opponents sometimes leave something back to protect their artillery. this means that your main units can crush them seperatly.. divide and conquer...:evilgrin:

That's ghastly i tells ya.

Nice lists,although some people will come down on you for that extra point,
have any plan's on a default deployment?

well the extra point means nothing where I play, if they're that fussy about minor details then they obviously won't be fun playing. If needed I can lose a warrior or Ironbreaker or both... in fact change of plans, i've edited the lists above to change:

1000 points
lose:
1 Warrior
1 Iron breaker

Gain:
Rune of determination on Iron breakers

2000 points
lose:
1 Warrior
1 Iron Breaker

Gain:
Rune of cleaving for the BSB thane

default deployment will be (if a hill), fortifying the hill, war machines on hill with the units curved around it. If not then whatever looks best, maybe refused flank a lot of the time.

if you deploy in refused flank, then a good idea is to put a basic bolt thrower on the other side of the board with line of site to a couple of your opponents units. this will confuse him as to what you are actually doing. plus, all you are losing in a 2000 point game if the crew are taken out is 45 points. it may also give your missile troops another turn of shooting if your opponent charges that first.

Nice list. The only things I can mention are personal preferences, namely that I'm not as big a fan of Dwarf elite infantry as I could be, but I'm a HUGE fan of Gyrocopters, Rangers, and Miners, because those three units are the only thing that can come to grips with the enemy with any kind of speed. Specifically Gyrocopters, as they're the only thing in the army that can move more than 3"

Also, you can go without the Runesmith in 1000 points. Having 6 DD at that level is pretty ridiculously high. Overall I like your characters though. They're there to support your rock-hard units.

ok, so maybe change the runesmith to:
Thane
shield, rune of stone
hand weapon, rune of snorri spangelhelm, rune of cleaving, rune of speed.

thats a 2+ save with 3 STR 5 hitting infantry on 2+ and other characters on no worse than a 3+
