well firstly you're only allowed 4 characters in a 2k list...

maybe use the points and change 1 20 man unit into 2 smaller units (say 17 if you can fit it) and then 1 char in each.

p.s. i hope you're using a slayer with the skill that multiplies his attacks by the number of models in contact with him.

According to my experience slayer armies just look cool, they never tend to do something cool.

But anyway, I'd split down the slayers in smaller groups, about 15 in each. I'd also ask about the full command, I haven't got the new dwarf AL, but as far as i know, slayers cannot have command?

ITs similar to mine, although they dont give you much room for flexability on the slayer list


HEROES/LORDS:
360 points: Daemonslayer (skavenslayer, deathblow, master rune of smiting, rune of snorri spangelhelm)
179 points: Dragonslayer (vampire slayer, master rune of skalf blackhammer)

CORE:
291 points: 20 Troll Slayers (4 giantslayers, standard bearer)
291 points: 20 Troll Slayers (4 giantslayers, standard bearer)
291 points: 20 Troll Slayers (4 giantslayers, standard bearer)
195 points: 3 doomseekers

SPECIAL:
255 points: 15 Slayer Pirates (drong, musician, standard bearer)

RARE:
135 points: Goblin hewer

1997 points

I really like the look of the list, one thing to note though is that you have great weapons listed for the characters. They have the slayer axes rule which means that they can pick either a great weapon or 2 hand weapons.

I would use the points you have left over to upgrade a unit of slayers to the brotherhood of grimnir, i think they are still a core choice?

Hope this helps,

Brothers of grimnir are not worth the points increase (IMO).
Also, slayers usually have their strength increased to be at least the opponants toughness, so you are much better off going with 2-axes per slayer rather than 1 greataxe per slayer
