Hordey (10models per 100 pts), has magic defense/offense, and has some hard hitting units, screening units, and cannon for big gribblies.

The only things i'm missing really are ogres which I love, but this is a cheese killer so I can live without. I do have 60 giant rats I could use but haven't included them.

All critiques welcome?

Cheers
Moose.

You can't take 2 hatred banners, although I would certainly want that sometimes:D
Why spears on clanrats? Spears only work if you have a a grey seer casting death frenzy on them...

So I suggest: Drop 2 warlocks and get a grey seer. Drop you hatred banner too. And maybe cutting of 10 clanrats from the big units if you don't have enough points...

you have the points to put the giant rats in there.

lose the spears.
trim the PCB's down to 6.

likewise nightrunners should be no bigger than 6.

the tunneling teams, you could lose the poisoned throwing stars.

that's enough points for at least one big unit of giant rats right there.

overall, i like the list. i think i'd only take one tunneling team and split the jezzails up, but that's just me.

let us know how it goes.

Cheers for the reply guys.

Yeah I thought i'd need giant rats, so i've dropped the nightrunners in favour of them.

Thanks for the spot on the hatred banner, it's out!

I think i'd go for the grey seer, but he always dies on me and I don't fancy taking him without the bell. Also I need lots of scrolls to fight magic heavy delves/helves, so scrolls on multiple models is better.

I'd take the spears off the rats too, however I think with skaven that extra 1/2 wounds dealt combined with static 5 makes a big difference to winning or losing combats. Also they're already modelled and people get funny about it here.

Cheers for the comments. I'll let you know how it fares against the magic heavy high elves after the game tonight.

Cheers,
Moose.
