Deployment - Warriors Hammerers Hammerers Hammerers Warriors

Basically the hammerers will march straight up the center with the warriors a few inches behind for flank coverage, what do you think?

remove the runic weapon, take those points and buy runic magic resistance for characters and hammerers on thier standards. WIth a marching army its all about getting as many bodies across the table as possible and magic resist is cheap and works well. You would also do well to take the magic banner of immune to fear and terror on hammerer units.

You want 2 hammerer units on the flanks, 2 warriors near the middle and hammerers in the center, warriors will not hold from a flank charge. Hammerers will. If you position your banner right you should be able to cover 2 hammmerers and 2 warrior units with Grungi.

Well... I tried this before and it doesn't really work unfortunately. Three main scenarios:

1. Enemy backs off and surrounds you getting ready for "the charge" during these turns you are getting shot to bits. He charges your weak warrior flanks. Your army is destroyed.

2. Enemy backs off and surrounds you getting ready for "the charge" during these turns you are getting magicked to death. He charges your weak warrior flanks. Your army is destroyed.

3. Enemy backs off and surrounds you getting ready for "the charge". His khorne knights DPs etc are awesome and he fears nothing you have on the table. He charges your weak warrior flanks. Your army is destroyed.

Occassionally you get

4. You opponent has deployed lazily and is completely baffled by your measily six inch leap out of the DZ. He panics and his army scatters. Draw.

I did this in a tourney once... never again. Gunline for the win.
