Hay all LO'S,
Just wondering, if Long Drong Slayer pirates were still good, if you don't what they are, they're just slayer's with pistols. Are slayers still tactical, should I use them in a small 650pt Skaven army? Thanks very much.
1st Combined Regiment. Contains Tallarn,Cadians, Catachans,Valhallan,Attilan,Armageddon Steel Legion and Vostroyan. Most Kills in one turn: 98 space marines and 6 rhinos with only the stompa's Gatla Gun (only that)
Personally I find them slightly more usefull than normal slayers. Pistols give a bit more strategic value.
Slayers in my local gaming store are made fun of for being: slow so slow and not wearing armor. At least other dwarves can claim slowness due to wearing heavy armor. I don't like slayers - I know other people do.
As to using them in a small 650 pt skaven army - USE SKAVEN. Have you read the fluff from the Dwarf Book or the Skaven book? They don't fight together - they try to kill each other! On that note I would say you shouldn't use them in a Skaven army (even though the DoW rules simply say no:Bretonnia, Chaos, Dwarfs, Wood Elves, High Elves and Orcs & Goblins).
as a former Skaven Player, I freaking HATED Long Drong's Slayer Pirtates with a passion- they were the perfect army to use against the Skaven. Time after time I saw my opponents make very good use of them. A good unit of 10-20 could cause so many problems for me it was not even funny.
