steadfast+SiN+Gen LDR+BSB.

Leadership 9/10 re-rollable....

As long as you have 20+ slaves, more ranks than your opponent, and the general and BSB are both within 12" your slaves will rarely break- the odds of failing a LD 10 re-rollable is very, very small-

The reason for LD 10, is Grey seer, or warlord (general) is LD 7- this leadership then is used in conjunction with the Strength in Numbers Skaven special rule which adds the current rank bonus onto the leadership (including the general's inspiring presence)

So, you break slaves by 1) having more ranks then they do (unlikely), 2) you kill them to less than 15 models, 3) flank them- without a rank bonus they will most likely end up at LD 7 or less-
