Are silver helms still worth taking now that they are not a core choice?
I'd say treat them as Knights without that insane 1+ Save.
So for my opinion on them as Special, I'd say go ahead unless you would rather use some of the cool other units (eg Swordmasters, Dragon Princes etc).
They're not really worth taking unless you are really really short on points. Dragon Princes are a faaaar better option if you want heavy cavalry, and reavers are a better option if you want fast cavalry. Dragon princes have much better stats, the extra attack makes them a lot more worth it, and they can take a magic banner while helms can't, and their unit champs can take items while helms can't, and they're only 7 points more expensive for exactly the same special slot.
