Nice list would drop one of the sorcerors for another assassin as you only have skiterleap as your spell and only one model to chuck about.

The gear on the units are ok but u need shooting on the gutter runners as they actually can hurt units with poisoned throwing stars and in close combat they go squeek run away. u need to reduce the size of units before u hit them as the eshin list does not remove rank bonuses as all are skirmishing so u have to rely on kills and u only really got the triads and the assassin lord to kill heavily armoured foe.

Well, that's funny. About a week ago I was thinking about the same army. An all skirmishing Eshin army. I must begin with the fact that my experience with the Skavens is limited and I never fielded such an army. Also, this army is made according to the BoB rules in the Skaven Army Book. I think you got the rules you used somewhere else? Where can I find these rules and how legal/balanced are they?

Anyway this is what I came up with:

Master Assassin
2ndWeapon; Smoke Bombs; Throwing Stars
Warpstone Stars
Twisted Crown of the Horned Rat
335 Pts

Assassin
2ndWeapon; Smoke Bombs; Throwing Stars
Brass Orb
175 Pts

Eshin Sorcerer
Magic Level 1; 2ndWeapon; Throwing Stars
Warpstone Token
2 Dispel Scrolls
125 Pts

Eshin Sorcerer
Magic Level 1; 2ndWeapon; Throwing Stars
Warpstone Token
Warpscroll
105 Pts

10 Night Runners
2ndWeapon; Sling
110 Pts

10 Night Runners
2ndWeapon; Sling
110 Pts

10 Night Runners
2ndWeapon; Sling
110 Pts

10 Night Runners
2ndWeapon; Throwing Stars
90 Pts

10 Night Runners
2ndWeapon; Throwing Stars
90 Pts

10 Night Runners
2ndWeapon; Throwing Stars
90 Pts

10 Gutter Runners
Tunnelling Team; 2ndWeapon; Poisoned Hand Weapons
170 Pts

10 Gutter Runners
Tunnelling Team; 2ndWeapon; Poisoned Hand Weapons
170 Pts

10 Gutter Runners
2ndWeapon; Poisoned Throwing Stars
160 Pts

10 Gutter Runners
2ndWeapon; Poisoned Throwing Stars
160 Pts

Casting Pool: 4
Dispel Pool: 4
Models in Army: 104
Total Army Cost: 2000

In short, not very different from your choices I think. Only our characters differ somewhat.

Oh, and I think to give this sort of army the slightest chance of winning you need to add a Ratswarm of 3-4 bases or something similar. But I made this army to play a fun game, not a game I really want to win.

HTH,
Roel

The list i use is below

Assassin lord - warpstone throwing stars, twisted crown of the horned rat
315pts

Assassin - bands of power, warpstone amulet
155pts

Sorceror - 2 dispel scrolls
140pts

Sorceror - 2 dispel scrolls

Triad - 210pts

Triad - 210pts

8 gutter runners, with champion, throwing stars and poison for both hand weapons and stars
156pts

8 gutter runners, with champion, throwing stars and poison for both hand weapons and stars

8 gutter runners, with champion, throwing stars and poison for both hand weapons and stars
156pts

Poisoned rat swarm 2 bases
130pts

10 night runners, slings
90pts

8 night runners, 2 hand weapons
56pts

8 night runners, 2 hand weapons
56pts

6 night runners
30pts

Its a nice list and have had a lot of success with it, plenty of poison as this helps to kill high toughness characters and the shooting of the gutter runners is nice. The rats are a good speed bump and with the poison can be quite nasty. Just need to be careful taking on fully ranked up units
