The Slaughter Master Armor Dilemma: What is an Iron Fist?
Old School here to talk a little Warhammer Fantasy with you. Tonight I want to crack open the debate on the Slaughter Master and the big issue that is sweeping the forums and to a lesser extent, the blogosphere (get with it bloggers, Fantasy is the shiz)! Let's take a look at both sides of the fence and then I will offer my lowly opinion ...
My opinion? Well, I haven't been playing Fantasy that long and though my experience is limited, I think the slaughter master and this issue can be solved by looking at what the other lord choices can take. Basically, without too much thought, I am asking the question: Why take a Tyrant (EVER) if you can give a slaughter master armor? I mean really? For what a LD boost? I don't buy it. A CC monster? Our whole army is a CC monster! Again, I don't buy it! I just feel like it would be a big mistake to make the tyrant into such a wasted Lord slot in the book and knowing GW the way I have for so long, I am sure they feel the same way. After all, don' they want to sell that Finecast Tyrant to you for about $38 or so? Don't they? I think they do, but in the meantime, I will play like the SM can't take the armor and secretly pray (and do naughty things in my closet) thinking of them releasing a FAQ saying the SM can have armor!
