Dwarf Archer Kinband you are paying 270 pts. for these 3 and Drars 2, for those points you could get 5 ranger companies +hornblower &captain
3 companies

Khazad Guard Kinband
2 companies

Drar's Hunters
2 companies

Ballista
2 companies

we are starting at 1000pts so any help would be nice

other than that the only thing I notice that is fragile is the potential formation sizes seem small (ie. vulnerable).
love the dwarves, they rock, have fun with 'em

Thanks for the input yeah i know that they are a little fragile but with the one big warrior formation backed up by the Guards with the 2 warmachines and archers to soften up stuff before they get to me with 2 companies of hunters coming in where i need them would be ok plus for the money i have to spend at this time is about all i could afford lol i want to use this 1000pts as a starting point then fill in with 1000 more point when i get the cash to pay for the rest..

I would swap out drars archers for more combat dwarves...

Not all those who wander are lost.

A light from the shadow shall spring.

I second that, or get rid of the archers and expand drar's hunters. I would also up the Khazad Guard company count to as high as you can.

Thanks for the info i do plan on expanding on dar's hunters and the guard we are starting a 1000pt army list and i thought with the money i had to spend this would give me the best starting point to build around... i do plan on building a army to about 3000pts.. soon as i get some battles in ill let you know how it went
