The last tournament I played in I won, and it was less than 2 months ago. It was not a huge one, but I have still done well at other ones that were 80ish members, the last one of those I took 4th, but that was before the new book came out.
Maybe What I was saying was getting gargled, in the length of my post. so I will try and clarify it some heh. Dwarf Shoot has to go full on shooting to have a chance, there are so many models out there that if you can not max grudge throwers, cannons, organ guns, and have an anvil as a min you are suffering imo. Dwarfs are so outnumbered that it seems like jerk list to play against, but in 8th ed you have two turns to shoot if you do not move forward an inch, maybe 3 if you go first and play it right. That is less than half the game, then it is a cascade of units dropping as they slam you and go from one unit, and then overrun into another unit.
Big Block lists are completely out numbered by horde style armies, and have to fortify themselves in a corner and hope you come play. If they have to move across the field they have to have an oathstone sobeing flanked wont matter, because it will happen as even other armies that are semi elite like Ogres might field more units than Dwarfs do.
In general Dwarf stats do not equal Ogre stats, they are either equal too or less, and if they are equal they cost more than an Ogre by far. Most dwarf armor doesn't matter against ogres as we are S4 or S5 against them often times, and that means they either get a 6+ or no save when they have great weapons which is really the only way to play them as of right now. I say right now, because CR was a dwarf's best friend, and now it is negated by steadfast. So if he/she builds a list not meant to fight Ogres directly and brings a list that is meant to fight a random opponent, they should have great weapons. Our Ogres will go first and crush many of them, and our IG will go with them and take more wounds, but kill even more since they need 2+ to wound the toops.
I have also played about 20 games in 8th as a Dwarf player btw, and in 7th I played well over a 100 games. dwarfs still is my largest army being well over 400 models. I got into Ogres before I knew they were going to be the next book, because I liked Ogres, and I could not figure out a army list with my dwarfs and beastmen, that and friend called me told me a bunch of my college friends were going to a tournament and I had 26 days to paint a 2500 army list. hehe so I mass ordered Ogres and painted 49 of them for the tournament.
Which was way better than buying 100 more dwarfs give them great weapons since 7th they were not as popular, and then paint about 150 of them. hehe
Ps. I am painting my 2nd Ironblaster now btw, I know how awesome it is, in every game I have played it has earned its points back and then some. Even when I charge it into melee to tie up a unit that was chasing my horded IG unit's rear. hehe
