Topic of the Week - Butcher and Slaughter Master

This is the start of a new series, that will hopefully bring new ideas and tactics to the forums. Each week, a new topic will be posted up about a different unit in the army book. This gives you your chance to discuss the unit to its fullest. So, please leave your comment!

This week's topic is - Butcher and Slaughter Master

How useful are these characters in the army? Are they worth it more rather than a tyrant or Bruiser? What items do you give them? How do you use the gut magic to support your army?
