750pt Durins folk list

Sun Dec 13, 2015 5:05 pm

Hey guys!

Even though I have been the game since 2007 I only started to regularly come onto this forum a few weeks ago so I decided to make myself an account.

Anyway here is a 750pt Dwarf list, the people I play against are normally Angmar and Mirkwood rangers (hobbit) and I have a friend who plays Mordor (hopefully) coming back into the hobby soon. I fight against Angmar the most.

Warband 1:

Dain.

12 Dwarf warriors with shields.

Warband 2:

Gimli

12 Iron gaurd.

Warband 3:

Floi Stonehand.

Warband 4:

Gandalf the Grey.

743pts total!

Thoughts?

Hi hero, that is a good Dwarf armies, and a good Dwarf army is better than a great army from any other race.

The one thing I am not sure of is Gandalf. It leaves FLoi's warband empty, so in his place this could easily have 12 more dwarfs, fully armed and filthy!

I'd like to see some lists from experienced Dwarf Players.

How about it, Ironfoot?

Maybe a 750 tournament list?

In my opinion is a good list on paper, I'd like to know how works against Angmar ;)

What would be a good Angmar tactic against the dwarves?

Shade? spectres?

That list looks good on paper, but in reality, it's going to get flattened. 28 models at 750 points is damn near suicide, as it is not uncommon to see armies with over 50 models. In fact, I can take Isildur and Elendil and an army of numenoreans and still have about twice as many men as you. The iron guard and khazards are good, but they're not that good.

Too many points in expensive heroes, I think you need more bodies and some ranged units to thin out the enemy before to lines meet

1 Warband, 134 pts
. . 1 Gimli son of Gloin (Hand Weapon; Two-handed axe; Throwing axes; Heavy Dwarf Armour; Axes of the Dwarves; Protect the Ringbearer)
. . 4 Khazad Guard (Hand Weapon; Two-handed axe; Heavy Dwarf Armour; Bodyguard)

1 Warband [at], 230 pts
. . 1 Thorin Oakenshield [at] (Hand Weapon; Dwarf Armour; The Oakenshield)
. . . . 1 Pony [at]
. . 12 Warrior of Erebor [at] (Hand Weapon; Spear; Dwarf Armour; Shield)

1 Warband, 129 pts
. . 1 Floi Stonehand (Hand Weapon; Heavy Armour; Loremaster; The Living Lore)
. . 5 Dwarf Ranger (Hand Weapon; Dwarf Longbow (bow); Armour; Mountain Dweller)

750 points, 38 models total. 4 very good heroes, 12 Spears for support, and 6 bows.

Thanks for all the reply's guys!

I have not had a game using this list yet, due to life and other games. However, I have got 9 Khazad guard at Christmas now, which I am looking foreword to using.
I took Gandalf because my mate plays the Dwimerlaik or Burhdur, 3 barrow wights a shade, some spectres and around 4 warbands of Orcs half spears half shields. Every time I have played Gandalf has been able to shut down Burhdur and Floi has kept the shade in check.

New list:

Warband 1:

Dain 125pts

12 Dwarf warriors with Shields 72pts

Warband 2:

Gimli 90pts

8 Iron guard 120pts

4 Khazad guard 44pts

Warband 3

Floi Stonehand 70pts

5 Khazad guard 55pts

2 Dwarf rangers with throwing axes. 24pts

Saruman the White 150pts

Total: 750pts

I don't own any Erebor Dwarfs at this point in time :(
