Characters with magical weapons in a unit with the BoEF don't have flaming attacks so any support the NK bus has will take care of dragon princes and the like.

It's not Dragon Princes I'd worry about, but more Flying Characters... Most of them have 3 wounds (pegasus, eagle,...), 2+ ward and 1+ armour, most often rerollable. If they challenge, you've got a problem I fear ;)

Ooh thats interesting Seneschal. I suppose my vamp not having flaming attacks will help in those situations, but I havn't come across any characters that held me up yet. Not really sure what I would do..

@Tamodan Gotcha

@Kevin Yeah, that's one of the reasons why I wouldn't field a BK bus with only character in it. I would seriously consider switching a few things up in that list.
BTW, beastlords sometimes take the blackened plate which is heavy armor that gives the character a 2+ ward vs. flaming attacks and their entire unit recieves a 4+ ward vs. flaming attacks. You'll typically see a beastlord strutting around in a unit of bestigors 30-40 strong with banner of discipline (sometimes the flame banner instead).

And crown of command on him also. Though I do not think I have ever seen a Beastlord with a magic weapono.o

Whoa! You've never seen a BL with a magic weapon? Wow!
The normal build I've seen and used for a long time was Armor of Destiny, CoC, shield and sword of battle in 30 besti's.
Nowadays its 40 best's with blackened plate, shield, brass cleaver and the 4+ ward.

Kevin and I played each other game 1 of the GT. VC on VC. We both walked away from the game with 10 points. Go figure :tongue:

You really think so, Yorga? If you're fielding TG's and engines, sure, I can see it, otherwise they tend to be an easy win even with an anvil.

Really Yorga? I slot Dwarves into my easy win slot. Only thing that makes me pee a lil is double organ gun. Other than that I am not impressed.

Yes. Dwarves ruin the day for the standard two terrorgheist list. I bought up one army in our meta to remove the threat and transfer it to my son this Xmas. ;) But the other player fields two canons, two organ guns, a grudgethrower and two bolt throwers. It is sick. :mad2: Yeah you heard me...7 warmachines.

And that guy has how many friend left to play with?
Honestly this is how I see all the Dwarven players play. My friend, whom Johnny stomped into the dirt, was the one exception. He tries to play a fluffy list and you see where that gets him. ;) Oh, BTW, the guy with the 7 warmachines had the anvil too. And yes, the warmachines that could have runes had them. I played him with Chaos warriors and got into his infantry blocks and ate him alive. My warrior horde supported by the Warshrine was almost depleted when I hit him. But it delivered my general and bsb into the combat and they were enough. The other Horde of Khorne Marauders took out the greybeards guarding the anvil and had just made it to the anvil when the game ended. Had he concentrated on my Warriors instead of my chariot or dragon ogres with his shooting he would have won.

As a bretonnian player i love warmachine spam lists personally. Fast enough where he is only two rounds of shooting before i am in his grill. If I want a easy relaxing game I will play against Dwarves or OnG no matter their build. I think ambush dwarves os their better build personally.

Please build me a great 2500 point Dwarven list that I can gift my son on Xmas when he gets his army. It only has 30 miner models though.

The Alamo has a scenario where everyone gets a free Cannon. Imagine having to play dwarves during that :|

Fortunately, there was only 1 dwarf player this year...

Sounds rather bizarre... Not to sound like a conservatist, but some of the scenarios people make up by themselves are pretty f'ing random :)

Was Red Zeke the dwarf player? He was a big influence on me back in the day. Did you have to supply your own cannon?
