its been a long long time since i played the ratmen and i got a good offer on this army from a friend and i feel i need a race to combat my dwarfs and who better than the skaven. im trying to use what i already own without making too many extra purchases.

at 2000pts there is only one lord worth taking and thats a grey seer, warpstone amulet for a nice wardsave and a dispel scroll to keep him reasonably cheap, he'll live in a unit of clanrats. next up 3 warlock engineers kitted out to wreak as much warplightning havoc on the enemy as possible. each capable of chucking out 2D6 S5 hits per turn, juicy. 2 of them will tag along with the clanrats and the 3rd will find a place to hide or attach himself to a unit as i see fit during the game. 3 big identical clanrat units form the backbone of the army, each with a ratling gun, not much to say really their clanrats. next up some flanking units, giant rat pack and rat swarms will do nicely. got a little slave unit to screen/bait and die in whatever way seems best at the time. two small units of globadiers hidden between the clanrats will make heavily armoured units worry.

next a large hard hitting unit of plague monks with additional hand weapons. this unit is chucking out 16 attacks on the front rank which should do nicely. 4 jezzails to snipe and keep charecters inside their units and a pair of 3 man gutter runner tunnel teams to harrass warmachines. lastly a warp lightning cannon because it looks ace.

basically the plan is to warplightning the hell out of the enemy, unload ratling guns/jezzails and lightning cannon on them and overwhelm the rest with numbers and large quantities of luck.
