Stormvermin at a 1000pts battle? :O
You know you could get twice the number of clanrats, instead of that unit?
Plus that in 1K battles, more units is a bigger plus than better stats on fewer units :D

OK thanks for the tip, any comments on the engineer set up? This is my first attempt at using one as i normaly go for the great looking furnace model, but that will now have to wait till larger games.

I think 150points for one LVL2 is a bit much :/
Donīt think he will win his points back, not with magic anway. Maybe make him a LVL one, just to get the magic-protection?

Havenīt tested the Doomrocket, so donīt know about it, but I like pistols on my engineers :)

With 8th ed. in mind did you say?. Then have you heard about the hoard rule rumors. Bonuses for stupid size units. I would drop the storm vermin and bulk out all of clan rat units.

Also, i would rather take 2 lv.1's with pistols for 140 points and put in an extra 4 clan rats. More dispel dice, not as eggs in one basket for low points game aswell. The doom rockets imense when it goes off, but it's 30pts and could kill 20 clanrats if it misfires

Finally, i have a dreadfull feeling rare might be a 10% limit, lets hope it's 15% for the 2 doomwheels in 2k. Added to the horde rule and there cheep heroes, that will make skaven very appetising

The horde rule isn't ment for small games and the + sides of it are not really that great. More blocks the better.

and for the doom rocket. Its pretty good the only thing is judgeing how far it will go. If you do land it on a block its like casting 2 scorches. its up to you to keep it in or not but it is great when you get it right.

Make your clanrat units 50 strong in a 10x5 formation :D Following the rumours you'd be stubborn Ld8, and fight in 4 ranks.

At 1000 points I would be tempted into putting a warlord for the extra leadership.

Hah! That's like when you put an army list on warseer and people tell you that nobody runs magic at 1k so don't worry about it...
