I think you got a nice base but I would point out some stuff.

You wrote your warlord is here to give a LD7, however, your greyseer is already doing that. I would dish it for more rats.
Then, the warlocks, I like to give mine only a doomrocket, and an orb to the second, just to be some bomb-cady. You could throw in a dispell scroll. I feel like the level 1 is expensive.

Second point, you really need more bodies in your units and maybe to merge some of them: 20-30 rats/slaves won't stand.
Slaves should be around 50, then if you just take 20 clanrats for weapon teams that's another thing, but you need 2-3 anvils of numerous rats and some hammers.

But looks like your only hammer is the HPA, if somebody concentrate fire on it it will die.
I guess that's why you took a stormbanner, but as you also have interesting firepower, it seems like kind of a waste IMO.

Hope it helps! :)

Slaves should be 40 min 50 good and 75 in the bigger games.

20 just means you loose SIN early on and break/explode 20 are useless

Hey french guy
thanks on your reaction and tips.

I always have the problem when i take a wizard as general that it dies (mostly by my bad rolls) that's why i didn't take the grey seer as a general, perhaps i'll take your advice on the warlord and sub him for more rats after a few test runs and my grey seer lives to tell the tail ;)

missed the errata on the stormbanner, which makes it a bit harder for my shooting indeed, got to work on that one (thanks for the head's up).

if my warlock is a lvl 1, then he can take the dispell scroll (arcane item), without the lvl 1 he can't.

i'll go for a 2x30 slave unit (got only 60 slaves at the moment), and perhaps squeze in a unit of plague monks or redo my list and put in a block of 18 rat ogres (but that would be mental i think).

More tips are always welcome

Sorry boli, missed your comment when i was replying, got to get me more slaves then ;) thanks
thought that 3x20 would be oke with redirecting
