Where are you putting your characters?

Combine the two rat packs into a single large one for maximum effect.

Drop one rat pack, then combine the remaining one into the other 2 (for a 3 pack rat pack) and use the points to bulk the plague monks to 25, clanrats to 25 and the remaining points to add troops to slaves, clanrats etc. With only 24 they will look weird (new rules 5 rank wide minimum) and lose rank quicker.

Well I was thinking to use smaller rat packs using them only to negate ranks when they flank charge, as I found it hard to use them as a real combat unit since the rats are really bad (no armor save, no banner) and cost just a tad less than a clanrat. Also the 2 rat pack idea was recommended in the article on the GW website so I thought to give it a try. The missing spot in the plague monks and clanrats units are to be filled up by characters, I'll edit the post so it says so. The warlord is in the plague monk unit, the bsb in the clanrat unit and the assassin is with the gutter runners.
