Hello, I'm pretty new to actually playing a proper game of Warhammer, even though I've dabbled in it a bit through the years - now my interest in it has returned after close to twenty years due to other games (Frostgrave mainly, bringing me back to the gaming table). I dug out my old dwarf army which pretty much hadn't seen a battle, or the light of day, and was just wondering what sort of tips you could give me fighting 6th edition Skaven. At least, I believe it is the 7th edition dwarf army list I have and my opponent has the same (from way back in 2005 I believe).
I am only using what figures I have, so will have to stick with these for now, and am aiming for a 3000 point game.
I have met the point spot on (or at least I hope so!), and this is what I have:
1x Dwarf Lord equipped with a Great Weapon, gromril armour, and shield bearers. .... 306pts
Runes are Master Rune of Alaric
Rune of Striking
Rune of Cleaving (overkill with a great weapon against Skaven?)
On his armour
Rune of Resistance
Rune of Stone
Rune of Preservation
and his talisman: Rune of Furnace (thinking to protect him from those pesky warp throwers!)
1x Thane with hand weapon, gromril armour and the army battle standard.....125 points
Runes are Master Rune of swiftness
Rune of fire
and the Rune of Stone
1x Runesmith equipped with hand weapon, shield, gromril armour.....87 points
Runes are Rune of Striking and Rune of Stone
Longbeards x 23 including veteran, runic standard, musician (unit is also going to be where dwarf lord will reside with his shield bearers) - Master Rune of Grungni on standard.......391 points
Dwarf Warriors x 50 split into two regiments of 25 each - both with veterans, standards and musicians, armed with hand weapons and shields...... 500 points
Dwarf Warriors x25 armed with great weapons, includes veteran, standard and musician...275 points
Thunderers x16 with veteran, standard and musician...249 points
Thunderers x14 with veteran, standard and musician... 221 points
Slayers x25 (including 1 giantslayer) .... 290 points
Ironbreakers x 22 (unit my runesmith will accompany) with ironbeard, standard and musician .... 316 points
A Grudge Thrower including an Engineer with Rune of Accuracy .... 120 points
An organ gun. 120 points
Hopefully my math has not been terrible or I've misunderstood something somewhere, but this all comes to 3000 points.
Target enemy, Skaven.
Any suggestions on anything, and what to look out for etc against the ratmen. For the glory of Karak-Bolg, we must prevail.
Thanks for your time!
