Yesterday i played a game against my self. (lack folks to play with)
And i lost! ... kidding.
I try to play these games to get a feel for the game and the rules.
Both sides had 700 points.
And i play to the death, not a setting or anything.

Anyways, the question:

I had a verry hard time to get his units down..
I owned, 40 clanrats, 20 plaque monks, 2 rat ogres (batalion any1? :) ) 3 jezzails, a warplock engineer (lvl 2 wiz)

His block of 20 saurus wariors didnt want to go down, i had the clanrats at the front and the plague monks in the flank and i was loosing.

The unit had spears n shields, and was 5 wide and 4 deep.
The 20 attacks of str 4, toughnes 4, and the armor save 4+ is just nasty!

My magic and the jezzails were to busy trying to soften the temple guard unit up. so it wouldnt steamrole into the flank of anything. (3+ armor save..arghh)

How do skaven handle these elite infantary blocks?

HPA, Doom Wheels, Plague Catapults, weapon teams, and lots of magic all in the same army, combined with outnumbering the enemy 5:1 with clanrats and some cheap slaves. Well to be honest at low point levels skaven struggle against elite armies because their massses and monsters/machines can't really be incorporated that well yet
