Grudge Thrower is very nice, now we don't have to estimate our distance. With rune of accuracy (reroll scatter) and 1-2x the rune of penetrating it hits like a truck. 8th edition made stone throwers a lot more viable, no more partial hits, no more guessing....and runes rule!. I always stick a engineer there for the reroll on the misfire-chart.

For the Boltthrower, i never played them (for a reason, i dont like them), but i can imagine that an engineer is manditory there for better BS and some runes of penetrating for extra strength.

Yes, this works, but cannon are better than BTs in most situations.

I often run 2 GTs and Master Engineer, and 2-4 BTs in a no black powder fluffy way.

Keep the BTs cheap. Engineer is mandatory, and the odd rune of burning only for magical/flaming.

For a 2k gunline I would suggest:

RL or RS
Two units of quarrellers (GWs)
2 GTs
2 BTs

as a starting point.

A third GT would be good but might be called cheesy.

A bolt thrower with engi and RoBurning costs 65 points, great for those regen units/weapons (Ogre regen bubble, anyone?). Food for thought when allocating that last 100pts.
