What's the point of both? They cost the same, have the same stats, and most of the same gear. The Longbeards just get a free shield but, who cares they have great weapons. So riddle me that Batman. What's the catch?
Stubborn. Stick a hero (general) in the Hammerers and that unit will budge for nowt, always testing on LD9 is a god send and can be used to anchor a flank or whatever. On the other hand they lack the shield making them more expensive and you have to choose between the S6 or the 3+ save.
Longbeards get all the above but won't panic. Not much admittedly and is why many prefer IBs or Hammerers over them; but this should change with the impending update.
This will definitely change when you have the option of taking Longbeards as core.

I like Ironbreakers myself. The extra save is great, and at such high LD it is easy for them to pass their test anyway!
