Baens Company

The dwarves have been a problem for me lately in terms of trying to come up with a viable force that translates my fairly successful rangers into a formidable force for the new Warbands format. After much thinking on the subject and prodding from another dwarf player I think I've come up with about as good as I'm going to get for my dwarves @ 600 points.

Balin
11 Iron Guard

Baen (Dwarf Captain)
12 Dwarf Rangers with throwing axes

Drall (Dwarf Captain)
12 Dwarf Rangers with dwarf longbows

Points = 600
Models = 38
Might = 7

The force retains it's strongest points (ranged combat) and gains something in the close engagement arena with Balin and the Iron Guard. I've considered dropping Balin down to a normal captain and adding in another Iron Guard, but for now I'll stick to Balin. That extra point of Might might be more useful than I think

Do your captains have shields at all?

Nope. I could drop Balin to a normal captain and give the three generic captains throwing axes. Since the troops don't use shields neither do their commanders. They are Scout and Iron Guard captains after all. :)
