Veteran of Nanduhirion is made almost completely obsolete by Erebor Battle-Master, as the latter fills the role of attacking ally much better than the veteran. However, in a vacuum, the Veteran is actually a pretty good ally. Four resources is a bit steep, but four attack with Dain is undeniably good. He can even pass for a defender, especially if you can heal up that damage.
