    bow men bunkers

    iv seen a few people saying that they use bow men as bunkers for there linch priests, which makes sense as you dont want them getting in to combat etc

    however i was wondering how you deploy them:
    if you put them behind your main lines then you linch priests are protected but then the bowmen cant shoot
    if you put them infront of your main lines then they can shoot but thats pretty much a useless bunker

    and if you put them on the flank then alot of the spells would be out of range

    so was just wondering where you deploy them and how u use them

    That's what I do...if they're behind your lines, they can be smaller (15 models per), since they won't take as much punishement. As an added bonus, if the enemy does break through, he's weakened to the point where 15 shots is significant...and 15 bodies are decent protection against a charge. I guess swordsmen would be better, points-wise, but army-wide, I'm only spending 60 points to make them archers instead, and they're decent against small/fast flankers and warmachine they have some deterrent value even when they never fire a shot.
