I know loads of people have slayer armies, and I want to get one.
The main thing that puts me off is the lack of variety and the certain things that can beat slayers, e.g magic can do this quite well.
How many people collect them round here and have they been successful?
I won plenty with them, I would say that I have lost only once since I have aquired them. The problem is that most opponent's will think only but cheese out of it, regardless of how hard you try not too.Originally Posted by Cairocopter
Doomseekers are the most devastating troop maulers of the old wolrd, and they cost only 65 pts a pop.
With the new dwarf armybook, you can have a very, very sick deamon slayer and dragon slayer, even better than before with more runes, and great magical allowance ( the rune combos and skills, there are just too many)
Go ahead, but 80 % of the players you will play won't enjoy their game.
I know what you mean, though a problem that I have with the slayers is their lack of magical items... talismans etc.
Its great but not very fun cause they're unbreakable, battles last for ages.
And I still think that you're a little limited with your choice, as there aren't many troop choices.
You don't need troop choices when your army is filled with unbreakable axeweilding maniacsOriginally Posted by Cairocopter
But what about shooting... long drongs and goblin hewer will have to do a lot here.Originally Posted by Wolf_Pack

There's a thread in the Official Warhammer Forums wherein people are saying that the SoC armies, and by extension, the Slayer army are being discontinued. I would link it, but I don't see a way to link directly to the thread.
The thread is entitled: Banning Storm of Chaos?:_I was told by my GW manager
According to the information in the thread, Storm of Chaos is not going to be reprinted, no new models specific to SoC will be produced, and starting next year SoC lists will be banned from all official GW tournaments. Supposedly, the lists are ALREADY banned from some Grand Tournaments.
If this is true, I'm going to be very angry. I've just bought seven boxes of the new slayer models to form the backbone of my Slayer army, as well as both named characters, five heroes, six Doomseekers, 20 Slayer Pirates and the Goblin Hewer. I haven't even had time to prime them yet.
I was getting bored of my Dwarfs, but they're really the only army that appeals to me. So expanding to an all slayer force really seemed like a natural progression. I hope they publish revisions to the army lists because this is enough to turn me off from ever collecting another army again.
WHAT! NO this cannot be happening!Originally Posted by crosscheck42
Sorry about the shouting, I'm just angry too. That's a lot of cash gone...
Oh well, I can still play with my friends.
