    Grimm Burloksson and thunders/quarrellers

    Hey,

    Having read the new white dwarf and seen the rules for G.B I have begun to consider a unit of 29 ranged guys to go with him. The problem I have is deciding between a unit of thunderers or qurallers. Assuming they remain roughly the same that is. Just wondering where you guys weigh in on the issue?

    The option for re-rolls and extra range on both units is great however I can't decide between the thunderers extra punch and the quarrellers ability to take great weapons. Should the unit options remain the same in the next army book should I get ranged and combat flexible or just ranged hard hitting?

    I'd stick with the thunderers myself. The extra ap is worth the loss of range and taking great weapons is just asking for a mid game identity crisis.

    Add a rune smith to give the crossbows armour piercing.

    I don't think it will work. Rune smith gives Armour Piercing to models, not to their weapons, and if model has AP, it works only on Close Combat attacks.

    Only got a quick glance at the new book. I think in that case some thunderers will work well, grab them some shields in a unit of 20 with full command and they should hold a flank well.

    I run Grimm with my own dwarf army but i use him with a unit of irondrakes (the new shooty Ironbreakers) But in your case I would choose thunderers, there is a lot of pain to be brought by str4 armor piercing.

    ps don't forget the shields!
