Welcome, and may the Horde be with you.

You don't have to take a specific clan. Unlike chaos, you can freely take troops from any clans, so just grab whatever tickles your fancy. However, if you particulary like Eshin, use the SoC Eshin list. It gives you Eshin in its greatest form, with special rules that let you fight at night so you won't be shot and reap 100s more VPs from killing characters. It also gives you the eshin triad, which is 3 assassins for the price of 2.

Well, you could always ask the Council for advice...

I almost never tried Eshin, though I use a lot in my warlord lists. Problem is they can't hurt heavy cavalry at all, and they have a very hard time against big block or armoured infantry.

I played against a player who used an Eshin list only because of the +100VP and the triad, he played it like a warlord list.
