No pikemen? I likes pikemen.

I like it personally nothing like the usual DoW, no pike men. And it is nice to see the slayer axe thrower being used, never seen one used in any fantasy games so far. Only thing that I can ask is what is the Maneater in there, as in, what are you planning on doing with him?

Thanks guys for they comments. The Maneater is there as a flanker. My plan is to have him run along beside either the Bearmen or the Bodyguard. Once they've engaged the enemy he'll slam in from the side. He also works wonders as a chariot killer.

As for the no pike question, I'm trying to go with a more northern theme for the army. The light cavalry is some converted Chaos Marauders, and I wanted Beorg and the Kislevites to give it that feel.

And the Goblin Hewer? Best 130 points an aspiring DoW general could ask for. The thing can have many names, the Skaven Slicer, or perhaps the Chaos Warrior Wounder, or maybe the Marauder Mauler. Every game I've used it in it has worked wonders.

Skaven slicer, pish posh. We'll see how many skaven it slices when a few gutter runners finish disemboweling dwarfs. *chitters maniacally* I thought it made a cool model though. Northern theme is cool, I've not seen much of that and it'd be great to look at, nonetheless play. I still like pikemen though... if I had the money, I'd make a wall of 100 pikemen and set it against Bretonnia. I hate them...
