i wout swap an chieftan for a warlock ......(below1000p it is mass damage)
and take 21 slaves if you can (1more kill before panic)
looks nice. just be careful , that units of 30 rats are maybe a bit hard to manouver

i would drop the spears on the clan rats and up the number of slaves, slaves take the charge clan rats flank. i havent read the new eddition book but iirc spears dont work when you charge. plus not having then makes your clanrats better at taking the charge if need be.

i also agree with hippe, i like units of 25 slaves and normal rats, its 5 ats to kill before you lose some Ld

I'm not fond of spears either, as they are a lot of points when you have bit numbers of troops.

I'd drop the engineer's equip. that generates an extra power die. He can only use 3 max, and you've got 4 available.

I like units of 30 clanrats, but I think the slaves could benefit from being a little larger. If it were me, I'd keep the units of 30 clanrats, but drop the spears in favor of boosting the numbers of slaves.

30 clanrats are not generally any harder to manuver than 25. Plus they can take even more punishment before losing their all-important numbers and ranks. At least that's my view.
