Hey guys,

Ive played 40k since second edition. However Ive never really gotten into fantasy.

I picked up some Tomb Kings when they first came out, but gave up fantasy shortly there after. My only regular opponent was fanatic heavy/magic heavy goblins that sucked to play against.

Ive been thinking about getting into fantasy for real this time, and the group I play with have been considering it as well.

I decided, Id like to play skaven, as their fluff is hilarious. I especially love Clan Skyre with their crazy destructive gadgets. I also want to play a magic heavy list. I put together this 2k list to build/paint to.

Be advised the last time i played fantasy was 6th edition (i think). And im very much a noob, so let me have it if im being an idiot over something.

Grey Seer -240

Warlock Engineer, lvl 2, Warp energy condesor, 120

10 Night Runners, slings

I know Skaven Arent considered a beginner friendly army, so any tips suggestions you could shoot my way would be much appreciated.

I also had someone mention that Skyre armies are considered cheesy...
I dont want to be THAT guy, are they really that bad? All the awesomeness seems to have an equivalent chance of blowing up in your face.

Great list. Youve got numbers, shooting and combat. You'll do very well. The only thing I can reccomend is a little protection on your seer. Drop the Poisoned attacks on the cheiftain and give him Rival Hide Talisman.
