The problem with Gotrek the Troll-Slayer is that he's a 'terrible' Troll-Slayer, he's supposed to die a warrior death, but he keeps failing by killing everything that challenges him. It's supposed to be 'funny'. Instead, we get to see a true WFRP 'superhero' in action, and some people, like myself, look at this and wonder why the previous two incarnations of the game weren't like that? (Although 2e did have the 'Naked Dwarf Syndrome', which I assume was like that old WEG Star Wars Wookie Ablative Armour Issue, but as I've never played WFRP, I am NOT claiming that's what it is, just what I heard. Which may be wrong. If I am, correct me.)
That was my beef. Apparently, 3e changed that, but the funky dice and the prohibitive price tag for the starter box puts it out of my reach.
