I suggest you play the list a few times. I suspect you will find that it doesnt work as well as you hope

It seems like a lot of small units. In my opinion dwarfs do better with larger blocks, say 25ish. That way you can take the charge, lose some guys and still get to swing back. Your high leadership usually lets you stick around even if you lose combat but if you only have 10 guys to start with you're going to lose 5+ in the first round meaning your unit isn't going to last or do any damage back. You are basically just giving up points for no gain.

You have a decent amount of shooting but I'd drop the flame cannon in favour of a grudge thrower. The flame cannon is gimmicky while the stone thrower is tried and true and very effective. There is a reason no Bretonnian player worth his salt leaves home without 2 trebuchets. With dwarfs you have access to the same quality stone thrower plus it is crewed by dwarfs and you can rune it up. Your thunderer unit is ok, but how are you deploying it? 3 ranks of 5 wastes 5 shots and in 2 ranks you're getting pretty wide. I'd drop it to 10 or 12 and invest the points elsewhere.

Rangers are probably the worst use of points in the book. I'd personally drop them altogether and use the points to bulk up the combat units.

All that said, I haven't been able to build a list that I like with the new dwarf book. You might as well try it out and see what works for you. Maybe all my advice is wrong and you'll find success.

Nathan has some good points. Also if your general is the runesmith putting him with the rangers will make him a target fast. Lots of points spent on runic standards which could be better invested as well. One solo gyrocoptor is sure to be shot down.

U have alot of expensive banners and not enough bodies. Rangers dont work, not even when paired with Miners in my experiences. Lone gyros are fine, i only run 1. Put the longbeards and warriors into the same unit, they are both HW+S make em warriors and theyll stick around.

Yeah I understand from a couple previous experiences that Strollaz runes can be a waste of points, especially if the unit containing it doesn't show up at the start of battle or is hindered by scouts.

I can't do much with the numbers of my units, i think spreading out the points will still work as long as they stay stubborn. I've trimmed down the unnecessary upgrades to refine the list.

Here is what I got:

Runesmith
-Shield
-Rune of Stone
-Rune of Iron
-2x Runes of Spellbreaking

Thane
-Battle Standard
-Rune of Cleaving
-2x Runes of Speed
-Rune of Stone
-3x Runes of Warding

10 Longbeards
-Full Command
-Rune of Stoicism and Sanctuary
-Shields

15 Thunderers
-Standard and Musician
-Shields

20 Warriors
-Standard and Musician
-Shields

19 Ironbreakers
-Full Command
-Rune of Stoicism

19 Hammerers
-Standard and Musician

15 Miners
-Standard and Musician

Dwarf Cannon
-Rune of Forging
-Rune of Fire

Gyrocopter

15 Rangers
-Standard and Musician

Organ Gun
-Rune of Accuracy and Forging

Flame Cannon
-Rune of Forging


oh and yes Don I do have all these models, some unassembled until I can see what 9th will bring in changes to unit composition.
