A quick question for you Fantasy Dwarf veterans. I am in the process of converting to Warhammer Fantasy and have selected Dwarves as the army I will be playing. I went out and bought a few bits and have 32 Dwarf Warriors with Hand Weapons and Shields painted and have started on the second batch. Whilst I do this, I began perusing the tournament lists that exist and are relatively current (this year) to get an idea of what I should be fielding. I noticed that all of the lists I have seen have no units with hand weapons and shields, only great weapons. So my question is, why is this the case? I am aware of the differences between the two rule wise and am more after an explanation as to why tactically, great weapons seem so heavily biased.
Thanks in advance!
