I'm starting to play WHFB soon and I'm aiming for Skaven. Found at out GenCon a buddy of mine has a mostly finished IoB sitting around waiting for a bit more paint and he isn't going to use it, so he is going to finish it and give it to me. Ran into someone at the local GW yesterday who has a Skaven half of IoB he's happy to sell me. So max $50 gets me those 2 IoB bits. I'm getting one full set from my friend and the Skaven half from someone else. So I decided to see what I would really want to build a decent army at 1000, 1500 and 2500 points. Wanted to pick everyone's brain a bit. I realize I need to spend on a few magic items so I may have to shift some numbers around a bit, but I wanted to see how people thought I would do at the various point levels as is.


1000 Points $213 (2 IoB, 1 Battalion, 1 WLC, 1 Ratling Gun) [Yes IoB's are more, but a friend is giving me one free and I'm buying the Skaven half off someone else soon]
