Along with this, here are some proposed new wargear options for short of named Dwarf heroes, and perhaps for the King generic hero

=========================================
Armoured Ram
8" F0/- S4 D5 W1 C3
Special Rules: Mountain Dweller - Can move its normal full distance in any rocky area classed as difficult terrain just as if in the open. May also reroll any jumping and climbing tests.
15pts

New wargear option for a shorter list of named heroes
=========================================
Armoured Hog
8" F0/- S4 D5 W1 C3
Special Rules: Impaler
20pts

(20pts because Impaler is a rock-star special rule on an armoured unit)

I have some changes to the regular Ram Rider I think seem good:

Dwarf Ram Rider
Move 5" F4 S3 D6 A1 W1 C4
Heavy Amour, Hand weapon, Shield

* This is the exact same profile as a dwarf warrior or erebor warrior so 8 points is its base.

Wargear:
Armoured Ram
Move 8" F0/- S4 D5 W1 C3

Special Rules:
Mountain Dweller - Can move its normal full distance in any rocky area classed as difficult terrain just as if in the open. May also reroll any jumping and climbing tests.

* 9 points for the ram seems fair.

= 17 point for entire model (19 with lance and shield)

Options:
Lance...... 1 point (as per movie and current models being made by custom model makers)
Shield..... 1 points (Same reason as above)


Notes:
The Mountain Dweller rule does not have a specific speed because it also doesn't specify the ram or the dwarf, they both have it.
I think it is best to drop the str 4 dwarf and include a lance to simplify things (current models being made have lances). And defence 6 and not 7 dwarves doesn't seem natural.


I definitely agree with the two mount profiles below!
