My friends and I decided that 40k had "jumped the shark",  so we're newly converted to WHFB.  I've gone and sold my vast collection of flimsy wraithbone- and made a proper investment in Gromril. 

 

My friends play O&G and Skaven, respectively, so I wanted to do something Karak Eight Peaks themed. So this list is loosely based on the Norgrimlings Clan in the 8th ed. Dwarfs book.

 

Heroes: 399

 

Runesmith (Sh, RoS, Spelleater)  113  -- deploys w/ Irondrakes

Runesmith (Sh, Ros, Spellbreaker)  93  -- deploys w/ Ironbreakers

Thane (BSB, Sh, MroGrungni, RoStoicism) 193  -- deploys w/ Longbeards

 

Troops:  705

 

Longbeards x29 (GW, FC, RoSlow)  471

Quarellers x16 (GW,Mus)  234

 

Special:  781

 

Ironbreakers x29 (FC, RoStoicism)  471

Cannon (RoForging, RoFire)  150

Gyro  80

Gyro  80

 

Rare:  615

 

Organ Gun (RoAccuracy, RoForging)  170

Irondrakes x19 (FC, RoSlowx2,, Trollhammer) 375

Rangers x5  70

 

Total = 2500 on the nose

 

This is my first list, so any criticism is appreciated!

This is almost exactly the list I'm thinking about running. Been debating on what Fantasy army to play and seeing the list I want to run is solidifying dwarfs for my army. Oh and nice The Maxx comic, Mr Gone avatar pic ;)

 

Mine had more Rangers and warmachines, no Irondrakes though.

 

Cheers

I would try to get an ME on the OG for added protection from arrows and the +1 to hit with the higher BS. that way you can take off the RoForging too.  Seems like a super solid list though nice work

It would be better to have the BSB carry slowness and the longbeard standard to carry stoicism.  That way if the BSB goes down your longbeards will still be stubborn.  At that point slowness is probably less important.  The only problem is that the ironbreakers also have stoicism, so you have to get around pride somehow.
