    Since the new Storm of Chaos lists came out, I have been very enamored of the Dwarf Slayers list. So, I decided to make an army list for it. Also, the new Doomseekers look astounding, as does the Goblin-hewer, so I just had to include these amazing new units in my army. Who knows, maybe I'll even get this stuff put together someday!

    All of your comments and suggestions are welcome. Have at you!

    Well the list looks ok, but...

    The Daemon Slayer has quite a good combo, the amount of auto-hitting attacks he can put out will scare most opponents. Although I would think about swapping the Beastslayer skill for the KB one, eight odd killing blow attacks is always fun.

    The dragon slayers I'm not too sure on. The first has a few pointless runes; RoStriking, RoSpeed. These two won't really do much, the extra WS and I won't really help as you already can hit most things quite easily. I'd give him MRoSwiftness, RoCleaving his attacks are now hitting first at S5 and if he's b-t-b with two enemies thats 6 attacks.

    The other one is a problem, because on your Brotherhood you have given them the MRoGrimnir. But all master runes can only be placed upon the BSB, so this second one would have to be that to get the ward for your army. So give him the MRoGrimnir and you can now give him any other standard rune thats not a master rune, but he can still have one slayer skill.

    The troll slayers look good, but giving them all GWs will mean that most won't attack back. So I'd give one unit 2-HWs for the more attacks, this will mean you won't be hitting as hard but a few more will get to attack back.

    Doomseekers, nothing to say here.

    The brotherhood, like I said exchange their rune and then they are ok.

    Goblin Hewer, well erm... YAY!!!

    Okay, after receiving some good suggestions, I've changed the list around a bit. King Ulrik, you brought up a number of good points, as I forgot that Master Standard Runes can only be given to the BSB. Anyways, the problem's been fixed. Oh, and I really want Beastslayer on the Daemon Slayer because on average he'll be killing about 4 models every combat - maybe 6 if he's in base contact with three models! This makes it MUCH more likely that the unit he's with will win combat. It also makes it possible for him to win combats against units all on his own if need be.

    Yay fun... any more comments are, as always, very appreciated!

    Looks ok, the changes should keep everything more or less safe from shooting. Just the BSB can't have an extra HW, you can only have one weapon (the other hand must hold the BS).

    Other than that it looks pretty good.
