ANyway, i want an army that wil march across the table and be able to stand against anyone toe to toe. I'm already thinking that i'm going to have to replace the night runners with some rat ogres, or some more weapon teams. I know i don't have much right now. I made this list on a whim, but here's my logic: Skaven slave teams out in front, absorbing shots, in addition to tying up some of the more annoying units while the clanrats and storm vermin fight in close combat. the night runners are used to get behind enemy lines, stiking at siege equipment, in addition to giving a few hurting flank attacks. warlock engineers and warp lightning cannons are used to soften up the other units.

Definitely think a hard hitter that can deal with elite warriors etc , rat ogres, a hellpit abom, or some weapon teams would be useful.

Personally i would bother with the slaves at all - 212 points over 10% of your total forces on something that will just be ignored or slaughtered yes might save yourself losing some clan rats but you need killing power! Thats what you should protect clan rats are ok but still lack raw killing power.

actually, at those numbers, those 10% of my forces are able to hold up large units of elite units, allowing my clanrats and stormvermin to swoop in from the sides.

drop the pawleaders in the slave units, they are useless

also drop the spears on the clanrats, hw + shield is way better. that gives you a 5+armor and 6+ward in combat.

i'd say drop the whold night runner unit and add weapons teams. Warp grinder is a cool idea, but you could end up in combat with the wrong unit or worse, kill off the whole unit.

Take ratling guns or poisoned wind mortars instead.

If you like the popping up behind the enemy idea, the safer bet are the gutter runners.

at 2000 pts i would rather have a general than 2 wizards. And the general is cheaper. you could take out one of your warlock engineers and put in a warlord with a GW, that way you give your units ld 10.

wont' the spears give me an extra row of attack? adn that armor save is rather worthless, since many units can simply take it away.

SPeaking of which, would it be worth it to add spears to skaven slaves in order to do as much damage as possible before they all scatter?

Drop the scroll warlock down to L1 and give the other engineer a Warp energy condensor. Also you need to remove individual points costs as it's against forum rules. Just give the total points for each unit.

You NEED a warlord or a Grey Seer for ld. Always. I'd say drop the warlocks and get a cheapy grey seer.

OH, okay, thanks. I never knew that. i'll go ahead and look at the warp energy condenser in the skaven book.

if you want a skyre warlord, have you seen the new GD model for 2011? Warlock augamented weapon FTW.

Oh, and remove indiviual points costs. Against forum rules.
