I heard that the warpfire thrower isnt very good and the ratling gun is way better but im nots ure seeing as im not a skaven player but it looks like a well rounded list that can see some action in all phases which is always fun

i dont like the hero selection really skaven heroes arent very good in combat and (minus maybe the warlord and plague priests, my suggestion would be to drop the seer and both cheiftans, get a warlord and 3 locks, you will get the same power dice but u get a potential 7d6 str 5 hits, and a general who makes your troops ld 10 ( you can even give him the bands of power if u wish, although i prefer the weeping blade)

- The wpns teams can be iffy vs shooty armies they free vps, vs non shooty armies they are amazing. It will depend on who u play how good they will do

drop the black skaven from the tunnelers, make them smaller 5-6 man tops

- if you do not want to go the warlord route, drop a chieftan for a plague priest to put in the unit of monks for some hitting power (armed with the foul pendant and plaguecenser)

- try to get slaves up to 25 men each so they less likely to panic, maybe give them musicians

-drop the giant rack pat, to easy to panic, and not expendable replace with night runners (5-6 man unit) or 3 posion wind globes.

- try to up jezzails to 9 man strong just for panic purposes

- Give grey seer a ward save (to save him vs warped lightning at the very least) he is expensive and losing half his vps bc u got unlucky with Warped lightning and or miscasts is very upsetting, i suggest the tenbrous cloak for this. 3+ ward vs your warped lightning spells and any missle fire is pretty useful at keeping the lil guy alive.

Thanks immensely for the responses, Drakenhof and fubukii! I'll take some of the things you've said into consideration and make up a new list with that in mind.

Particularly fubukii, I've liked some of what you said, and might very well switch up my Lord and Heroes selection. We shall see. Thanks again, and keep an eye out for a new list!

i like it but you have 120 pts left to spend ^.^

Maybe add more censers to make the unit 7-9 man strong so they can take some deaths before hitting combat.
- add 2 units of 5 bare boned night runners to claim table corners
- another units of wind globes (4-5 man)

that should help u with the last of your points.

overal i like it solid ld decent shooty/magic good combat (well good combat for a skaven army:P)

Thanks, fubukii! I like it a lot myself. I can also have it built fairly quickly all things considered, as a lot of the models I already have in my 1500 point army. Hmm I'll think over the options you've given for filling out the remaining points, and see what works best for me.
