as i understand it, skaven "sad" armys are considerd cheesy and not fun, so that leavs horde armys and they seemed like a gfood idea till i realised that all skaven infantry is week anvil units, and thats ok becus there is so meany of them but none of them have any punch, exept things like jeezils so wat is a skaven hord army ment to use as its punch

Plague Monks/Censer Bearers can be fairly punchy. So can Rat Ogres if you can shield them enough from shooting/magic to get them into the battle alive.

Other than that, I have no idea. I hate playing 'horde' Skaven and personally prefer a somewhat more balanced, albeit magic-heavy list. So other than a unit of PM's coming up one flank and a unit of SV coming up the other,, I just hold the center with a bunch of rat blocks and count on all the casualties that my WL and shooting caused as they were marching towards me.
