Decided to put a list of Dwarves into the works for the future but wanted to do something better; instead of doing some piddly little 750 point troop with nothing special but its paintjob i decided to do 1000 or a 1500 point throng with none other than Josef Bugman at the top.

Need some critiquing of the list, ideas on what i would use to fill most if not all of the last 60 points, and i hope its up by tomorrow morning for me to review. Army to face is any; i am just trying to make a friendly yet strong force for any general combat in the unknown future. First list ever made so give it your all.


Cannon w/engineer & rune of reloading (115pts)

Bugmans rangers- SB+Vet- 20 units at (305 pts)

Longbeards- shield+vet+SB-15 units at (200 pts)

Quarrelers- 15 units at 165

Bugman- 155. Either in his rangers or with the standard Longbeards.

940 points

Reloading is basically a worthless rune, especially with an engineer. Put Forging on the cannon or don't take it.

Bugmans rangers- SB+Vet- 20 units at (305 pts)

Your price includes a musician.

Longbeards- shield+vet+SB-15 units at (200 pts)

What is this unit for? Even at 1000 points, I don't see how a small shield unit has value.

as david said reloading is worthless. forging is a must need for all cannons..so take that.

id get rid of the longbeards and spend the point on more bugmans rangers...cause 20 isnt usful. take 30 at least. than if you have any points left give the quarrellers GWs.

Your original list was illegal anyway as you can't have your normal longbeards without a lord or unit of warriors.

Bugman's great strength is that it allows you TWO units of rangers. At 1000 points that is pretty much your entire army deployed after your oppponent's.

I'd seriously consider dropping a body or two and upgrading your quarrellers to rangers, or swapping them for another ranger combat unit.

Contrary to the above, I think 20 LBRs will do fine at 1000 points. If you are having one big unit, warrior rangers are better value.

e.g.

20 LBRs, FC, roDetermination (325)
32 Rangers, FC (377)
Cannon, engm forging (140)
Bugman (155)

total 997
