Hello manthings!....um fellow DakkaDakka posters. After much consideration as to what army I should return to as Fantasy is starting to pick up again at my FLGS (had been contemplating Chaos Dwarfs who are very cool but would have broken the bank so to speak) I decided to return to an old favorite of mine, my mighty Clan Skryre Skaven! The following list is my eventual goal that I want to reach with this army and in order to fit Clan Skryres fluff I have decided to go with a "shooty" Skaven list. Now please keep in mind though this is a themed list I still want it to play pretty competitively so I tried to make it as strong and fluffy as possible, this is a 1st attempt at this list so please, any thoughts, comments and ideas are more then welcome, especially since I am just returning to Fantasy. Thanks for posting guys! :thumbsup:

LORDS AND HEROES:

-Supreme Commander Niblit (*Ikit Claw*)

-Chieftan BSB
*w/ Crown of Command, Shield, Extra Hand Weapon

-Level 1 Warlock Engineer
*w/ Dispel Scroll

-Level 1 Warlock Engineer
*w/ Doom Rocket

CORE:

-x25 Clanrats
w/ Full Command, Hand Weapons and Shields, Mortar

-x25 Clanrats
w/ Full Command, Hand Weapons and Shields, Mortar

-x25 Clanrats
w/ Full Command, Hand Weapons and Shields, Gatling Gun

-x25 Clanrats
w/ Full Command, Hand Weapons and Shields, Warpfire Thrower

-Rat Dart
*w/ x5 Giant Rats, x1 Packmaster

-Rat Dart
*w/ x5 Giant Rats, x1 Packmaster

RARE:

-Warp Lighting Cannon

-Warp Lighting Cannon

-Doomwheel

-Doomwheel

TOTAL ARMY: 2000 POINTS

Tactics:

Pretty straightforward when it comes to this, I hang back and bombard my opponent with Mortar and Cannon fire with supremely better and more accurate artillery fire then anyone else while my Doomwheels will run on both flanks and do what they do best to anything they come across. Have a super sneaky teleporting Warlock Engineer to blow up some stuff with the Doom Rocket while the other will chuck Warp Lighting at people as will Niblit (Ikit). Finally two small "Rat Darts" to be my re-directors and keep the scary stuff from smashing my face in right off the bat.

Here is what I would do to toughen.up your list (while still keeping the fluff).

Your army is leadership vulnerable, you have made it worse by taking a bsb that has a mere 4+ armor save for protection.

Drop the crown of command if something flighty makes it to your bunker you have lost anyway. You would be better served putting a 4++ ward on your bsb or some other protective combo.

I would drop the clanrats with the warp fire thrower, and the champions and musicians from two of the other three units. This gives you the points for two blocks of 40 slaves, and then the extra points can be used to upgrade one unit of clanrats to stormvermin with the standard of discipline.

Your rare selection looks great and should do well.

yeah you may not have the models but it would be pretty cool to have jezzails and poison wind throwers

slaves too. they are cheap and maybe they could be equipped with slings to help with more shooting.
