Hi, I need advice from you experienced Longbeards!
I am going to be taking a 2500pt Dwarf army to a small tournament in a month and want to do something different to spook everyone out and have a bit of fun. They will all be expecting a gunline (which I detest playing with). At the same time, it is quite a competitive atmosphere so I wouldn't mind winning a few games! The players are High Elves, Skaven x2 and Chaos Warriors. We're all pretty inexperienced but the few times I have played the Chaos guy he wipes the floor with me. Anyway here is my attempt at a more interesting-to-play list:
Bugman (155pts) - He seems a bit useless but lets me take 2 Ranger units - this will spook the other players out, right?
Runelord with Anvil, shield and Ro Stone (323pts) - Helps combat Magic a bit hopefully and lets me do crazy charges.
Dragon Slayer 2xRo Speed (60pts) - Protect the Anvil?
Thane BSB with Strollaz's Rune (145pts) - Strollaz the heck out of some units (hope to move up the two GW warriors and Ironbreakers) and shake up deployment. Then move 6. Then charge with Anvil. Is this even possible??
29 x Dwarf Warriors Great Weapons (310pts)
30 x Dwarf Warriors Great Weapons (320pts)
19 x Rangers Great Weapons (286pts) - These guys are trouble makers and flankers
30 x Longbeard Rangers (350pts) - These guys charge 1st/2nd turn (as long as I don't get 1st turn they can charge, right?)
20 x Ironbreakers (284pts) - Hard as nails but small unit. I only have 20 models so kinda have to take only 20.
12 x Miners (142pts) - These guys come out of nowhere in the 2nd/3rd turn and make a rear charge with luck.
Cannon Ro Forging (125pts) - For killing the Hellcannon and Hellpit Abomination!
Does this list have any hope of winning any games? Is Bugman and a second Ranger unit a pointless luxury?
Really appreciate any help on this!
