285

30 clanrats

30 clanrats

Merry Xmas!

I'd drop the clan rats to 25 a piece and then increase the monk unit to give it a bit more weight (i'd also be tempted to drop a clan rat unit and take 2 slave units in its place to screen your monks). I'd also with give the priest a flail or an extra hand weapon to give him more combat weight.

yes, i agree. drop the clan rats down to 25. this will free you up 67.5 points, so you can get 9 more monks to your unit and give you 4 points for a flail so it works out perfectly. now you could use slaves, you don't really have to, but you could. i personally wouldn't. just because i think the blocks of 25 clanrats are a whole lot better. looks pretty good though.

id give the plague priest some type of ward save to better protect him

I'd change a unit of clanrats into slaves, and pick up some giant rats, they are great =D.


Cheers

K thanks for the tips, when upgrading the list to 2k do i keep the clanrat units at 25 man or do they need to be bigger for larger games?

Hi. I probably wouldnt include the plague furnace in armies under 1500 pts, as it makes the army very small and takes up a third of the points. Though you have a good foundation for 2000pt army.
For the larger games Id probably keep the clanrat units to 25 unless your up against a gunline army, them I might consider 30+.
