How many of you think sauri with spears are worth it. I personally don't like them but they may have their advantages. They cost two points morem only have a 6+ save, and the second rank gets one attack... so your basically paying a lot more than a normal spearman for an extra strength. Sauri with shields and hand weapons seem better, cheaper, plus there is nothing cooler than sauri painted well with red shields...
As I said in that other topic, spear sauri get a 5+ save.
The advantage of spears is that in rounds they are charged and in secondry rounds, they get an extra rank. That means 3 attacks per front model (2 attacks base + 1 for extra rank). And 3 S4 attacks is nothing to laugh about.
I'm in favour of using them in larger battles (like 2k and more). Firstly if you only use 1 regiment of them as an anchor, spears work well, especially in combination with Quetzl.
Secondly if you focus on Sauri or if you use a Slann (so you focus on magic), using 1 regiment of spear Sauri also gives you an anchor, a hube around which you want the battle to unfold. Give them Quetzl and let the enemy charge them, so in your turn you can counter-charge.
i really dont like spear sauri really becuase
1 ) they cost more points
2) they get a worse armour save (and we dont want those expensive sauri dieng)
3) its only 1 more attack and if you chagre you dont even get it
those are reaslly my reasons i mean in 3k + i would think abouit some but i feel they arnt as good as normal sauri for that 1 more point others may feel completly different . i surpose its one of those things really some prefer the extra attack for more but some prefer the cheaper more durable sauri
who the hell said he is playin with 1k ?
but anyway i would take hand weapons nonetheless
I just think its dumb because one of the best combat advantages of sauri are their extra attack and this eliminated for their second rank.

The iron crowned is getting closer,
Swings his hammer down on him,
Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
Down the Noldor's proudest king.
Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.
