EDITOR: TSR's old Battlesystem?

Way back oh, 10 years or so ago, I had a WHFB dwarf army that was nigh unbeatable. They only lost one time, and that was a VERY low point pick-up game because my opponent only had a few models to play with.

My number one factor in army make-up was negating completely any magic the enemy had, and then applying wide not deep shooters, some artillery, with Longbeards and Hammerers to back them up.

Most players tend to invest in magic, and it is a points-hole. For dwarves, dispel dice were relatively cheap and being able to defeat that from the start gave my stunties a HUGE edge. I had BUCKETS of dispel(?) dice each turn to use against their magic turns.

Magic is powerful but can back fire on the caster if you screw it up.

My friends like to fantasy game sometimes, but they absolutely hate to have magic on the battlefield. But they insist on tons of monsters. In your groups, what do you like?
