View Full Version : fun slayer list

Hey guys, just bored and the idea for a marching slayer list seemed like a fun way to pass some time. I may even decide to buy the models later if it's any good.

The idea is to use the anvil to march across the board as quickly as possible with my 3 slayer units and start chopping. Quarrelers hold the flanks, Rangers march block/redirect. Gyrocopter hunts warmachines and flank/rear charges. Dragon Slayer goes in a slayer unit, and can pop out to try to deal with anything nasty.

Would be cool to see this army in action especially once those slayers get into combat but have you considered what will happen if you came up against a shooting army.

Well, a shooting army would be bad for sure, but with a little luck you could get the slayers into combat as early as turn 2, minimizing the amount of fire they actually take. The unit size of 30 for the slayer units mitigates some of the effects of shooting, and slayers are immune to psychology, so they're going to reach the enemy lines, the question is with how many troops left lol.
