Five dead Orcs lay there. They had been hewn with many cruel strokes, and two had been beheaded. The ground was wet with their dark blood.

Longbeard Orc Slayer

At first sight the ability looks very tempting to add this card to the deck, but in reality it really don't work. First of all, the price is really to high and to make it really useful, you need to face a hell-of-lot of orcs to make it work. And when i mean a lot, i mean suicidal number and even then, is not doing so much. The other stats are not impressive at all beside 3 hp, which mean this guy is much more a moving orc target, then orc slayer. I wonder if it can be useful in dwarf deck, but I doubt it. I like the artwork though. Verdict: 2/5.

Here he is in all his glory. The longbeard orc-almost-slayer. Seriously, FFG? Is one damage gonna do much? Granted, it's a neat ability and decent stats, but for four cost?! Okay, so maybe for some reason you have a killer orc just hanging on to life and you pop this guy in. Good for you! It doesn't make the orc-tickler any better.
