Minion Farrow Unit

Bloodthirsty, tough as nails, and strong enough to hack the arms off a gorax, slaughterhousers serve as vicious shock troops in farrow warbands. Heedless of danger, slaughterhouser units charge recklessly into battle, cutting a wide swath through the enemy with their massive pole cleavers and shaking off wounds that would kill or incapacitate lesser farrow.

Thoughts on Farrow Slaughterhousers[edit]

Farrow Slaughterhousers in a nutshell[edit]

Farrow Slaughterhousers are effectively a unit of weapon masters - just as long as you have enough shooting to have scratched up the enemy first.

Combos & Synergies[edit]

  • Paingiver Task Master - no knockdown tough is just plain obnoxious to deal with, and the Task Master's STR buff means that charging Slaughterhousers are a significant threat to warbeasts.
  • Efaarit Scout can scratch almost anything enough for Finisher to trigger.
  • Gun Boar - good model for scratching up enemies
  • Saxon Orrik - Pathfinder on a stick.

Drawbacks & Downsides[edit]

  • Easy to hit and not terribly fast.

Tricks & Tips[edit]

  • They need screening from charges.

Comparison to Mk2[edit]

Slightly cheaper, slightly higher MAT.
