Hi all, I am very pleased to report that I was able to take best overall (scoring highest battle points) with my DH list this past June.

Buckeye Battles is the largest 9th Age tournament in the United States (82 players this year) with all of ETC team USA in attendance. Moreover, in its 11 year history, this is the first time Dwarves have taken best overall - gogo 9th Age Dwarves!

Had some good luck and some bad. Played well overall but also made several mistakes. What really won this tournament was the strength of my list in the current US meta, which is combat rush heavy and gunline light.

The matches:

19-1 vs BH
20-0 vs VC
17-3 vs EoS
16-4 vs WDG
14-6 vs VS
86 total


The list:

Engineer (280): general, ancestral memory, rune of denial, guild crafted handgunshield

Dragonseeker (440): grim resolve, pw with qicknessx2, destruction

Dragonseeker (390): monster seeker, pw with quickness, fury, smashing

Dragonseeker (210)

11 handgunners (285): shield

10 handgunners (260): shield

10 handgunners (260): shield

10 warriors (160): shieldthrowing weapons

10 warriors (160): shieldvanguard

21 seekers (466): champ

seekers (259): champ, vanguard EDiT: also skirmish

10 miners (205): paired weapons

Vengeance Seeker (130)

2 gyrobombers (420)

Cannon (255)

Rune-crafted organ gun (320)

Thank you!  I have to say, 9th age has been good to the Dawi.  Yes artillery has been toned down - but so has magic and by a far greater margin (It is worth noting that both are still very much worth taking).  Our runes give us the best magic items, and triple march has given us a much greater range on the map.  Cornerhammer Dwarves are largely a thing of the past.

Which is a good thing.

Cornerhammer once in a while was fun, but i tend to play more mobile forces (gyrocopters, miners…)
