View Full Version : Long Drong Slayer Pirates in 7th ED

with the new 7th ed rules, pistols no longer count as Armor piercing hand weapons in the 1st rounds.

So effectively, Long Drong Slayer Pirates are basically a slayer unit with the ability just to fire off 2 cheap shots per unit in the front rank and no longer able to loose off leadshot hell in melee right? Doesn't that make them, well, for lack of a better word, unfeasible to field anymore?

The slayer pirates specify in their rules that they do get S4 AP in close combat, so they still do.

ZomboCom has it right. They fight in combat with S4 Armour peircing because of their special rule "Festooned with Pistols" rather than using what they are armed with (basically 2 hand weapons).

Grugni be praised! I can still make good use of them!
