View Full Version : Favorite Skaven Clan?

15-06-2009, 01:27
This was hard for me because I like all the Skaven Clans but Id like to know which is your favorite.

Pestilence: Psycho, fanatics who want nothing more than to engulf the world in disease and drown it in sickness:cries:
Whats not to like:D

Moulder: Monsters Galore:evilgrin:

Eshin: If you like ninjas thats fine. But if you like man size rats who have the ability to slit a guys throat, kick him a couple of times and then dissapear into the night without breaking step clan Eshin is for you.

Clan Skyre: Ultimately powerful and use some of the strangest weapons in warhammer, hilarious results too when things dont go as planned:D

Eshin, closely followed by Skryre.

15-06-2009, 01:36
I personally think overall I would go with Skyre because their weird.
I like weird.:evilgrin:
I love the globadiers, tech warlocks, jezzails, warp fire throwers and most of all that o so deadly cannon.

15-06-2009, 02:26
Not sure Skyre for the steampunk or Pestilinse for the imagery.

15-06-2009, 02:32
I like moulder the most. Creating monsters and mutating your own kind, with no guaruntee of success is my recipe for a fun time.

15-06-2009, 02:34
It's a tie between mouldar and eshin for me, although I use skyre and pestilence troops the most.

15-06-2009, 02:48
Moulder all the way with me, I love the Dr. Frankenstein aspect of it! :chrome:

15-06-2009, 03:10
Skyre is the most powerful in fluff and in mechanics. The other clans need some love.

15-06-2009, 03:22
WHY IS THIS NOT A POLL!!! :D My fave is definatly Pestelins followed closely by Moulder. I love the rat ogre pitfight game! Oodles of skaven mutatedey goodness!

15-06-2009, 03:36
i like skyre the best, they are crazy. eshin is also super cool.

15-06-2009, 03:37
Finally, Clan Skryre is the most experimental and intellectually advanced group of Skaven. Members of the Clan specialize in the blending of evil magic and arcane Skaven technology. The Clan's Warlock Engineers have developed several types of ranged weapons that can have a devastating effect on the enemy: Warplock Jezzails, Poisoned Wind Globes, Ratling Guns, Warpfire Throwers, and the dreaded Warp-Lightning Cannon

Clan Skryre, all the way.

Also - it's "Skryre", not "Skyre"

15-06-2009, 07:39
Eshin and Skrye are the best... although the other two definitely have things going for them.

15-06-2009, 07:42
Skryre and Eshin are my favs. Here's to hoping that they will give Moulder some love in the next book.

15-06-2009, 10:55
I like them all. Plague monks are some of my favourite models.

15-06-2009, 10:58
Pestilens, which is weird because i don't like nurgle...

15-06-2009, 11:01
eshin, for me thats the only army who realy thinks they are invincebel ninja's from inner space... (below ground...)
i like gutter runners...

15-06-2009, 11:15
Clan Mors, they're just warriors. :) (Queek Head-Taker!)

Weren't they once one of the big clans? I'm not sure.

Clan Mors and Clan Rictus are supposedly the largest warlord clans from what I remember but they dont have the same level of clout as the 4 big clans. I think Moulder has always been my favorite pity their units are generally a liability in the game.

15-06-2009, 11:26
Clan Skyre - I like crazy inventions.

Clan Pestilens is my favourite. Closley followed by Skryre.

15-06-2009, 12:06
I think I'm going to have to go with Eshin, followed by Pestelins in a close second. I've always loved the idea of rat assassins.

15-06-2009, 12:17
Moulder >= Eshin > Mors >> Pestilens >> Skryre

I really hope Moulder gets a boost and that all the clans get a rare choice.

Clan Mors for me. I love a warlord feel to my army, and would love loads of stormvermin and maybe albino super elite body guard.

My least favourite has always been Pestilens.

Eshin Moulder and Skryre are roughly mid choice about the same.

Clan Pestilens is my favourite followed by Mors and Skyre. I have never really cared about Moulder or Eshin.

15-06-2009, 15:18
Eshin, closely followed by Skryre.

My thoughts exactly, though I think Pestilence could easily wipe out a large city ala Middenheim or Talabheim if they could unite.

15-06-2009, 18:52
I have to say it's a close one, but my vote is for Clan Eshin......it certainly has nothing to do with Deathmaster Snikch standing over my shoulder, making me type this.

15-06-2009, 19:08
Clan Pestilence! Insane don't care if they are cut in half still crawling to bite your ankles crazy with plague is just awesome!

I do however like aspects of all the clans. I really dig the whole Skryre Warlock with like custom made abilities so he feels like a super hero/villain. Molder has just a terrible rules and some bad concepts in the current Army Book, the WD list was very cool however. Rat Ogres are just cool models and concept that are just plain stink in game terms. Assassins are what make Eshin so cool. So aspects from each I like, but Plague Monks and Censor Bearers are just pure win for me personally.

Clan Moulder is my favorite, but Clan Pestilens is a very close runners up. Then comes Skryre and at last Eshin if we stay to 'the big 4'

15-06-2009, 23:51
How do you pronounce Skyre?

16-06-2009, 03:09
Moulder definately for me, creating giant killing monsters to do their bidding is awesome

16-06-2009, 03:15
Pestilence is my fav, plan on making a heavy themed army of them when the new book comes out

16-06-2009, 03:48
How do you pronounce Skyre?

Well, it's spelled "Skryre" and I imagine you probably pronounce it like "Scryer"

Really? We should go on a date sometime.

My personal favourite is clan pestilence. I love both the old and new plague monks and the plastics make for perfect clanrats.

16-06-2009, 14:16
Currently it's moulder for me - the whole rat tide thing and rat ogres. Eshin are second, but less of an army to my view.

Clan Mors do have the whole rat-head emblem going on, though. And buried a whole rival clan in Karak eight peaks.

16-06-2009, 15:03
Clan Pestilens is my favourite. Closely followed by Skryre.

same here, PWG still are my favorite unit, but pestilens has greater fluff and feel

Moulder is my favourite. Pestilens are pretty "nice" as well.

16-06-2009, 19:56
The one that doesn't run lots of SAD lists.

16-06-2009, 20:43
same here, PWG still are my favorite unit, but pestilens has greater fluff and feel

One of my favorite models. Wish they had a longer range.

16-06-2009, 20:50
Moulder and Skyre (Giant Rats/Ogres with guns = awesome)
Eshin close behind (supported by the sneakies)
The Pestilence (In a rare appearance the plague comes)

Eshin, for sneaky stab-stab action - especially in Mordheim.

16-06-2009, 22:08
im not a skaven player...im only just getting into fantasy but ive always loved clan skyre because they have all sorts of awesome zappy magical contraptions that look like theyre made from whatever they can find

17-06-2009, 11:54
Eshin gets my vote, assassins and wanna-be assassins are pretty cool. Gotta say that Skryre comes close second, mainly because they blow themselves up, which is quite fun.

17-06-2009, 13:48
I like Skryre for Doomwheel, Screaming Bell, Doomwheel and Ikit Claw! And Doomwheel :)
I like Moulder for the Rat Ogres! Perhaps the new Moulder monstrosities allow you to customise limbs and tails, multi-limbs or heads or whatever. I think it will be wicked :)
I like the Pestilens for the Censer Bearers and Lord Shrolk! :)
I like the Skaven.
