With a unit of dwarf slayers you can upgrade any and all of the mto Giant Slayers making them characters and subject to the Look out Sir ruels. So where is the line drawn?
The rules say that there needs to be at least 5 models in the unit so...lets say I have a unit of 24 slayers and a deamon slayer has joined them. I upgrade 14 of the slayers to Giant slayers so thats 14 Giant Slayers, 1 deamon Slayer and only 9 slayers. When a cannon comes into the unit who can benefit from "look out sir".
The rules suggest that if the cannon ball flyes throught the deamon slayer then into the 2 ranks of giant slayers and finally the back 2 ranks of regular slayers that both giant slayers and hte deamon slayer would get rolls for look out sir and if successful the wound would be tranfered onto the closest rank and file model, ie one of the regular old slayers back in ranks 4 and 5.
I am a dwarf player, but this seems a littel odd to me. Has there been a ruling on the ratio of character to rank and file in reference to look out sir? anyone?

The problem with giant slayers is that they are unit champions rather than characters exactly and as such should follow the rules for them. Itâ€™s an odd situation ill admit but as far as I can tell you indeed remove the normal slayers before you remove the giant slayers. As for the character slayer you roll a look out sir save as normal then follow the normal procedure. (so you would remove a normal slayer first)
at least this is my understanding of the rules.
