As I stated in my last post now that 8th Edition WFB has landed I'm looking at getting my Dwarf on. I managed to get my grubby little mits on a copy of the new Rulebook on Saturday and I've gotta say I'm really liking what I'm seeing so far - I've never really played any of the previous versions of fantasy so I'm coming at this essentially as a new player but it looks like it's going to be allot of fun.
Back when the 25th Anniversary sets were out for WFB a couple of years back I picked up the Dwarf army deal and it's pretty much just sat in a cupboard ever since - upside of this is that I don't have to outlay allot of cash to get started on Fantasy.
Myself, Brad, Neil and Rick will be doing a similar thing to when we were doing the 40k league to encourage us to get our army's assembled and painted. We are starting off with a target of 1500 points and will be working up from there. My first stab at a list is as follows (bear in mind that this is from a "n00b" perspective):
1500 Point Dwarf Army
Dwarf Lord - Oathstone, Shield, Rune of Striking, Rune of Might, Master Rune of Smiting. 283 points
20 x Iron Breakers - Musician, Standard Bearer, 3 x Runes of Sanctuary. 323 points
20 x Dwarf Warriors - Shields, Great Weapons, Musician, Standard Bearer. 235 points
12 x Dwarf Warriors - Shields, Musician, Standard Bearer. 123 points
19 x Thunderers - Musician, Standard Bearer. 271 points
Grudge Thrower - Rune of Accuracy, Rune of Penetrating, Rune of Reloading. 140 points
Master Engineer - Great Weapon, Master Rune of Spite. 119 points
All in all that comes to 1494 points, I am totally expecting something (or should I say several somethings) in that list to be done wrong as it's my first stab at it and I will probably change it as I get more comfortable with the rules but it gives me a starting point to get things glued and painted. Ideas, suggestions and criticisms are, as always, appreciated guys.
