    Call me crazy, but I always took miners to be Dwarf equivalent to Goblins, never bother using them.

    Goblins can be useful in some matchups, especially vs WE due to their silver shields. Miners can be useful when you expect heavy armoured infantry (eg Dawi mirrors or vs Chaos) and you can get them in a flank.

    How do you tell which units have what type of shields.

    There is an icon beside the Armour value (either a Bronze or Silver shield).

    Goblins are better than miners

    It seems like everyone has forgotten that goblins have absolutely awful leadership and will run away at anything whilst miners will stay in combat forever

    Yeah goblins pretty much *need* chevrons, miners are ok out of the box. One's not better than the other, they both suck but they're cheap and have uses.

    I'll add more of my thoughts since this thread is still up and I've played a ton more matches.

    Witch Hunter
    He has poor range and accuracy on his pistol and accusation isn't having enough of an impact for his price. I'd maybe give him some more armour since he is standing out in the open a lot.

    I'd go +10 armour, +accuracy ,+Accusation ability damage or maybe add some damage resistance penalty onto it too

    Warrior Priest
    Not sure if this unit is rare in general since I use the priest occasionally. Regardless, I think he'd be better as a more defensive hero providing buffs. He dies very quickly when targeted by enemy heroes and he's mainly there to provide buffs so his low armour and aggressive melee attack/defence stats don't suit him. He stats should be more like a mini-Arch Lector. Maybe downgrade his melee attack stats and buff his melee defence instead. Having lowered melee attack might actually give us an incentive to buy the Hammer of Sigmar ability. He is very lightly armoured for a character that typically wears heavy armour in the tabletop and is visually heavily armoured.

    My view: +40 armour, -15 melee attack, +20 melee defence, -4 charge bonus

    Great Eagle
    It's going to need a cost reduction of stat increase to justify itself since it's a rather poor fighter and gets beaten by almost everything.

    Sisters of the Thorn
    This unit is good but it's abilities start on cooldown. There's not always time for them to make their mark with spell abilities.
