WHFB Army list Dwarfs @ 2000pts

Provisional army list for Runefang IV in April is:

Runesmith
- MR Balance, RO Spellbreaking, Shield

The army general. Will hold back from frontline. MR Balance takes 1 PD from enemy and gives me 1 DD which when combined with Dwarfs +2 dispel easily negates enemy magic.

BSB
- MR Gromil, RO Preservation, RO Resistance, RO Furnace

Standard set up for BSB who wont die. 1+ rerollable AS, immunity to killing blow and poison and 2+ WS vs. flaming attacks.

Warriors x25
- Full Command, GW

Warriors x25
- Full Comannd, GW

Warriors x25
- Full Command, GW

3 big uber blocks of GW infantry striking at S5 going to be hard to beat. Considering also taking two horde units one of 40 and one of 30-35.

Hammerers x28
- Full Command, MR Grungi

The armys anvil WS5 S6 and Stubborn. BSB will stay with these guys in middle of battleline.

Stone Thrower
- Engineer, BOP, RO Accuracy, RO Penetratingx2

RO Accuracy to reroll scatter dice all important especially for indirect fire. 2 RO Penetrating making all hits S5 or S8 under the template. Brace of Pistols (BOP) helping against charges.

Cannon
- Engineer, BOP, RO Forging, RO Burning

RO Forging is mandatory for cannons allowing rerolls on misfires (either initial shot or bounce) without losing ability to fire next turn. RO Burning gives ability to harm Treeman and other nasty regen units.

Organ Gun

Included because its the best warmachine in the game. Automatic S5 AP hits not to be ignored. Did consider swapping for Gyrocopter but opted for firepower instead.

TOTAL 1,993pts

As you can tell this is a very combat orientated list. Runesmith will aim to nullify enemy magic while warmachines decimate strongest enemy units. 4 big blocks of infantry or possibly 3 horde blocks are going to be horrible for anybody to face. In 7th I wouldnt run with this as it would be too risky. But in 8th Step Up and Steadfast makes big GW carrying units golden.

Modified version with horde units

Runesmith
- MR Balance, RO Spellbreaking, Shield

BSB
- MR Gromil, RO Preservation, RO Resistance, RO Furnace

Master Engineer
- RO Stone, GW

Added to entrench Organ Gun and to further improve Stone thrower. Means that with RO Accuracy I can reroll scatter dice and artillery dice when shooting with it.

Warriors x40
- Full Command, GW

Warriors x30
- Full Comannd, GW

Hammerers x28
- Full Command, MR Grungi

Stone Thrower
- Engineer, BOP, RO Accuracy, RO Penetratingx2

Cannon
- Engineer, BOP, RO Forging, RO Burning

Organ Gun

TOTAL 1,997pts

Good list, I like it. I definitely think you should up the Warriors to 2x40 as you say. 25 with GW's will die all too easily against nasty enemies that strike before they can return the favor. With 40, you'll get more attacks and have enough bodies to strike back for a long while.

25 would not scare me, 40 seriously would. :)

Nice list dude. I like all of it, although I think he stone thrower is a little bit too expensive. It is a nice machine, however loosing it could cost you dearly - as opposed to having say two other machines.
