Hey I'm wondering as to peoples view on longbeards as rangers. Giving them throwing axe's so they can show up, you move up, enemy's pivot, You move up again and throw your strength 5 axes hitting on 4's, then wait for charge where you do it again but hitting on 5's and then your in combat with your great weapons.
I'm re-starting Dwarfs after years as part of a army build campaign with friends. As such we are building 2k forces and before I start building I'm looking for opinions and Ideas to use to save wasting money and effort. Firstly I would love your opinions on this type of unit. You can be brutally honest. Thanks

i like the quarreler rangers myself to scout then use their crossbows to shoot long range. but i rly like longbeard rangers the throwing axes are fantastic.
I usually take a unit of either 10 for warmachine hunting, or 30 if I'm feeling evil. putting a thane with the rune of brotherhood and Bugman in the unit makes it able to cope with just about anything thrown at it... and putting them in something like a tower/building, with multiple floors, makes the only feasible way for the enemy to remove them either lots of magic, or by blowing the building up...
in short, they're amazing against elite armies in large numbers, but almost useless against horde armies. if in small numbers, lethal against horde armies, useless against elite armies...
still, thats just my experience. and quarreller rangers are good as well if there's cover for them to hide in.
