    thats a common misconception, more people play LB then Hammerers (see poll), for 3 main reasons:

    1. They have possibly the best infantry models in the game (outside of WE)

    2. They have better fluff

    3. They are better than Hammerers because they are cheeper and still immune to panic, which is good

    Also very versatile, a Ws of 5, 3+ save and S4 or 5+ save and S6, making them very usefull in most situations, they make a good center block, as they won't panic when flanked in combat.

    Is this a basis of abilities or just the physical model?

    that doesnt change the fact that hammerers get free stubborn if they have general w/ them which maximizes there effciency and if there taking a panic test your rollin on 9's

    I think that we'll all find that with the new rules and models coming out soon, you will see a lot more of the grumbling Longbeards on a gaming table near you.
