I wanted something with a little speed and that is why Ogre maneaters are in there plus they are stubborn fitting in with the slayers being unbreakable.

Questions

1. I was thinking of making the slayers units instead of 20 being 15 and adding in a units of 20 wariors. Good idea?

2. Do you think iI will live longer enough against a magic heavy army to get across the board and into the fight?

3. Ogre maneaters do you think they need handguns?

Thank you

1. drop the slayers down to 12 or 14 and make them two ranks deep.... and 6 or 7 wide... You might want to add some punch to the army aswell... like miners or something to add variation!

2.You should survive to reach the enemy... why not add a stone thrower or something shooty to get the enemy to come to you?

3. Naaah!



Btw.. I would concider strongly adding a runlord with anvil... purely for the fact that you can be tricksie with your slayers with the aditional movement and the like!


You might want to add a few small missile units to deal with fast cav and the like!

RuneLord with an anvil is to big of a change for me.

If I drop the slayers down to 15 dwarfs I would be able to get 2 units of 10 Quarrellers.
What about this?

What if I downgrade the longbreads to warriors and use the points for something else?

I assume you originally did a slayer cult and then found out its illegal?

You really want the anvil... its awesome and will allow you to do some sneaky tactics... and try and get 12 miners because they are really good (especially when combined with slayers or the anvil!

There is nothing illegal about the slayer list.

You are allowed 1 additional slayer unit per slayer character.
Thats a max of 3 slayer units in any 2000pt army

It's a 2000pts army Dspankdo, so he can't have another character.
Only 4 characters allowed and the general cannot be a Slayer character.

First sorry about taking so long to get back. I had to work overtime at work.

Ok I played a game that other day with the 2nd draft army and made some changes based on what you guys have said and from the game too.

Runesmith: (General) 70pts. Shield +2, 2 Runes of Spellbreaking +50, Rune of Stone +5.
= 127pts.
Dragon Slayer: 50pts.
= 50pts.
Dragon Slayer: 50pts.
= 50pts.
Dragon Slayer: 50pts.
= 50pts.


Core Units

19 Dwarf Warriors: 152pts. Musician +5, Standard bearer +10, Shields +19
= 186pts.
18 LongBeards: 198pts. Musician +5, Standard bearer +10, Shields +18.
= 231pts.
10 Rangers: 90pts. Shields +10, Great Weapons +20, Throwing Axes +10
= 130pts.
10 Quarrellers: 110pts. Shields +10.
= 120pts.
10 Quarrellers: 110pts. Shields +10.
= 120pts.

Special Units

15 Slayers: 165pts.
= 165pts.
15 Slayers: 165pts.
= 165pts.
15 Slayers: 165pts.
= 165pts.
15 Slayers: 165pts.
= 165pts.

Rare Units

Gyrocopter: 140 pts.
Gyrocopter: 140 pts.


Characters 277.
Core Units 787.
Special Units 660.
Rare Units 280 = 2004pts.

I think this list is a lot better then the one before. I dropped the Daemon Slayer and added some more movement/shooting by adding the two Gyrocopters.

Questions

1. Should I drop 1 slayer from 3 units to buy A Rune of Battle for the LongbeaRds and a muscian for the Rangers?

2. The only way to have the Master Rune of Grungni is to have a battle Standard so is it worth it to drop a unit of slayers and a dragon slayer to have this?

Thanks
