So this is my first game using skaven in 8th edition, so I am kinda nervous. I have not played too many games with skaven before, so I do not know what to expect. Here I go!!

Lord: Grey Seer - Foul Pendant, Enchanted Shield - 280

Heroes: Chieftain - BSB, Storm Banner, Poison Attacks, Halberd - 137

Core: 40 Slaves - Spears, Horde (10*4) - 100
40 Slaves - Spears, Horde (10*4) - 100
35 Clanrats - Spears, Standard, Mortar (For Lord 6*6) - 230.5
35 Clanrats - Spears, Standard, Mortar (For Chieftain 6*6) - 230.5
40 Clanrats - Spears, Standard, Mortar - 253
40 Clanrats - Spears, Standard, Mortar - 253

Special: 10 Gutter Runners - Slings, Net, Poisoned Atks - 180
10 Gutter Runners - Slings, Net, Poisoned Atks - 180
8 Plague Censer Bearers - 128
8 Plague Censer Bearers - 128

Rare: Doomwheel - 150
Doomwheel - 150

Again, I am not entirely sure what I am doing, but I am expecting a pretty good war machine line, some annoying shooting line, and a nasty lord made to take down pretty much anything. Any tips would be great. Thanks!!

Would suggest squeezing in a second doomwheel so that when they blow one up you have backup.

i've played dwarfs for a long time, and big big units always scare me, especially when they move 10'' and are unbreakable with a bell or furnace. a bell is always my proirity to destroy... but so is a doomwheel, clanrats, mortars. etc etc etc.... :)

Looks really solid, only thing that I can think of that could improve this list is a Power Scroll on the Grey Seer. Dwarfs have a pretty reliable magic defense, and used correctly, The Dreaded Thirteenth Spell at the right moment can remove a whole pesky dwarf unit - along with any characters in there. Dwarf characters are usually hard for skaven to deal with so this can come in handy. It's only 35pts.

Also, are you really allowed magical armour on your seer? I'm not sure but my guess is no.
