I've just started playing wfb again after a long time out and have just signed up for a campaign in my local GW. It's 1000pts to start with and i think that there are all of the other armies represented so i am trying to find something pretty balanced, at the moment i have:

Grey Seer - 240

Chieftain; BSB, additional hand & Biting blade - 77

40 Clan Rats; Shields, Musician, Standard Bearer & Clawleader - 200

20 Stormvermin; Musician & Fangleader (Chieftain goes here) - 155

4 Rat Ogres + 2 Packmasters - 176

1 Doomwheel - 150: 998

Total: 998

I'm a bit concerned that the Grey takes up too many points and it might be better to just take a warlord and bulk out my infantry... but I'm nervous of not taking any magic... any suggestions would be great :)

A cheap warlock engineer could do instead of a grey seer, a lvl 4 on a 1000 pts game...is overkill?

And the free points from changing a Seer for a warlock could be use to buy a weapon team for your clan rats!

As well as a dispel scroll for dealing with those WoC armies running Tzeentch and get a lucky gateway off.

Remove the CR champ and add another packmaster to the rogres.

Make the stormvermin champ into a std instead. You'll need in for some scenarios.

Thanks for those suggestions, i don't have any weapon teams until the IOB box arrives in a few weeks so i'm pretty much working with the battalion box and a few extras... anyway how does this look now:

Clanrats x 30
Shields, Musician, Standard, Clawleader
155

StormVermin x 20
Musician, Standard, Fangleader
165

Rat Ogres x 4
Giant Rats x 12
Packmaster x 3
220

Doomwheel
150

Chieftain, BSB, Storm Banner - 120
Chieftain, General, Shield, Poisoned Attacks, Tail weapon - 70
Warlock Engineer, lvl2, Dispel Scroll - 125

Total 995

rat orges and giant rats cannot be in the same unit. give 2 packmasters to the rogres and 1 to the gr.

you have the points give your bsb a halberd.

remove the clawleader from the cr. and the poisioned attacks/tail weapon from the chieftain general and give him the sword of ASF, this will leave you enough pts to add in one more gr.

in the skaven army book it says that giant rats and rogres can be fielded as mixed units... although actually i guess having 2 flanking units would be preferable

good suggestions for the chieftain as well,

cheers

The mixed unit is for the packmaster and giant rats or rat ogres, not both. reread page 53.

Ah yeah, thanks for pointing that out... saved me from looking like a fool in my local GW :)
