A list for an rtt this weekend. I'll have a blast with it but my odds of winning are slim, I think.

Lord: Verminlord
Hero: plague preist, lvl 2, flail, pox rat, scrying stone(general)
Hero: warlock lvl2, d scroll, condenser
Hero: chief, bsb,shield, stormbanner
4x20 slaves
3x25 clanrats, mu, banner
2x doomflayers
26 giant rats, 4 pm
22 giant rats, 4 pm
2x6 plague censer bearers
Hellpit a-bomb, ws spikes

10 magic dice
6 dispel + 1 scroll
13 drops (it's fluffy!)
230ish models

I know it's not optimal. Too few drops. Too many points on characters. Too many big point sinks.

But I'm takeing it anyway. Cuz the verminlord is COOL. The priest on the rat is COOL. The hell pit is COOL. The doomflayers are COOL. You get the picture?

So. Thoughts and hundred of corrections that I know are comeing?

I'm guessing 2 wins and a loss. I'll squash someone round 1. Have a tight game 2. Then I'll run into a heavy hitter or my VL will miscast himself to oblivion.

By preference, I'd load up on more magic-boosting items for your heroes. Who cares if a bunch of rats die? I'd exchange the dispel scroll for a power stone and put a pair of power stones on the Plague Priest. This is along the lines of the kinda list I'd like to play if I played Skaven, lots of magic and cool stuff... so all luck to you ;)

Me likey, ratman. But, I do have a question: Why units of 26 and 22 GRs rather than 2x24? WHY?.


(List looks awesome; good luck!)

Because the plague preist is on a pox rat. He's ona 40x40 base and he's mv 6 and frenzied. The clanrats can't keep up. So he goes in the 22 rat unit.
