The Thumper Crew. (overview) Thisi will hopefully give you the desire to knock the dust off of the thumper crew and give them a go. If anything, it will throw your opponent of his guard for a few games.
Weapon Crews can generally be relegated to fun lists or things that get passed over in favor of better units, but the Thumper Crew is not as bad as you may think. It suffers from the ?awesome? Trollkin def of 12 like most units, and has the same armor as the Fennblades (14), but it isn?t meant to get into the thick of the action. It should be sitting behind your big blue wall of regenerative flesh. If your opponent has made his way through your lines to your thumper crew, you weren?t going to win anyway. Putting this unit onto the table may even make your opponent smile or even openly laugh, but you can wipe the smile from his face after a good hit on one of his large bases.
The Thumper has 3 crew and benefits from range finder (+2 to attack) by having only 1 extra model in base contact so if you lose one crewman to a stray shot it is ok.
