I haven’t played with my 30 men unit of very nice 5ed sneaky gits because of the 7ed rules. But what about 8 ed. ?
Now it is nice to have many ranks and you have support attacks.
a 6 wide unit have 18 poison attacks.
lets do a little math.
30 x Sneaky @150p 6x6x6x6x6 vs units of same costs.
Sneaky VS. Orc’s hit same time S 18A=9 hit 3P likely 6W = 3 D orcs - O 10A=5 hit likely 3 D sneaky next round orc’s don,t have choppa. So a little upperhand for our sneaky gits.
Sneaky VS. Ngoblins w spears and nets NG hit first 18A=9 hit likely 4,5W = 4,5 dead S - S 10A=5 hit 1,66 P likely 2,5 D NG So stay away from NG’s.
Sneaky VS. Marauders w GW S hit first S 18A=9 hit 3P likely 6W = 6 D M - M 6A=4 hit likely 3 D sneaky gits. So a real upperhand against Marauders with great weapons.
You can do more you self - but what you will find that Sneaky can be used again :cheers
