In the coming weeks, I'll be bringing Thorgrim out for the first time in a 2600 pt Dwarfs vs High Elves game of 8th edition.
Has anyone fielded him? If so, how did he do? Any advice?
Here's my list:
General: THE Thorgrim Grudgebearer
Master Engineer w/ rune of stone + brace of pistols
Runesmith w/ rune of spellbreaking, rune of stone, shield
Thane BSB - rune of grugni, shield on Oath stone.
30 Longbeards w/shields + Fc w/rune of battle (Thorgrim here)
14 Thunderers w/shields , musician + standard
20 Ironbreakers w/FC w/rune of stoicism (BSB Thane here)
10 Miners w/FC and Steam Drill
10 Irondrakes w/FC + trollhammer torpedo
Organ Gun w/ rune of accuracy
Things to consider: He has brought the 30 white lion horde w BotWD before. I'm thinking of leaving the organ gun with no runes for that purpose, or making space for a Grudge Thrower.
He has a Frost heart, though he hasn't fielded it yet.
Otherwise, I'm expecting RBTs, Phoenix Guard, White Lions and a big horde of Spearmen.
Note: I only have 1 gyro and in terms of remaining units to throw in: Cannon, GT, Slayers, additional heroes.
I could also remove the trollhammer, 1 Thudnerer and the IB champion and add the Grudge Thrower - naked.
Let me know - The High King Marches!
