Dwarf questions

Post  Ironwoulf on Sun Apr 27, 2014 9:40 am

Working on a 2500 dwarf army. Any idea's.
- using ironbreakers as an anvil , scouts and miners to open up rear flank. staying away from all shooty army
1. general - lord or thane?
2. gyrocopters (not bomber) how high a priority?
3. hammerers - as a hammer unit, keeping small to max points per attack, no command. I was thinking 10 (5x2)

Since enemy units will be at least 5 wide in order to maximize attacks with your hammerers you should go 7 wide. For 4 more hammerers you'll get 6 more attacks and have 2 more wounds in your back rank so it will take a bit longer before your 2A front rankers start dying.

Gyrocopters are a solid choice and they are cheap enough that you can take one without sacrificing much.

I always like taking a lord but thanes are pretty solid and can be kitted out enough that they can go a couple rounds with most lords of other races.

I've never liked Heroes leading armies. Just seems....wrong. You need a Lord!!  Very Happy 

I've been on the receiving end of new Gyrocopters and they are pretty darn good.
