after reading the new rules I came to the conclusion, that slayers are potentially the worst unit in the current dwarf army book.
Since I love the miniatures and they're quite iconic I really wanted to find a way to make them work.
A normal regiment of them has such a bad output, is not though and really expensive for what it can do - in addition we have similar expensive units that do like every job better.
I was thinking about taking maybe 5-8 and a slayer hero with alot of attacks for some killingblow action?
And then I realized: Slayers are our cavalry basically.
Since they're unbreakable they don't care about any rank bonus, so there is no downside in using them constantly in a marching column. Means they're moving throughout with m9.
Could this help in any way to make them playable?
