Yeah, I want to make a 1000 point list but can't think of what to spend the last 60 points on. I want to keep it as Pestilens as possible and try to keep it somewhat fluffy as well. Some suggestions on how I should spend the last 60 points would be greatly appreciated.

Hero
Plague Priest w/ Flail and Liber Bubonicus - 114 pts.

Core Units
20 Clanrats w/ spears, musician and ratling gun - 185 pts.
20 Clanrats w/ spears, musician and ratling gun - 185 pts.
20 Slaves w/ musician - 44 pts.
20 Slaves w/ musician - 44 pts.

Special Units
20 Plague Monks w/ Standard of Horned Rat and Musician - 199 pts.

Rare Units
10 Plague Censer Bearers - 170 pts.

Total - 941 pts.

Ratling guns aren't very pestilnes. :) I would take a Chieftain (put him in one of the clanrats units) or maybe rat swarms (1 base of swarm doesn't work as good as two). Some small units of Night Runners would be useful but they aren't pestilens too. ;) So, the best choice is the Chieftain with GW and Heavy Armour.

Maybe insted of the ratling guns you could get 2 bases of plague rats, making your army totally pestilant ;)

#4 looks fine to me but you can't take two the same magical banners. 30 Clanrats cost 155 pts. I think you mean 20 with full command?

Bigs
20-07-2005, 08:29
Okay, I revised the 4th list I added the points right just didnt put them in on the Clanrats. Anyways, I think I'm going with #4 and no I did mean to make it 30 Clanrats not a full command. And where does it say you can't take two of the same banner?

sqri

Magical banners are like other magic items and they cannot be taken twice in one army. I don't have rulebook with me but I'm pretty sure about this.

Dr.Blast
20-07-2005, 12:22
Yeah, Sqri is right, you cant have 2 banners of the swarm, you're only aloud to have 1 per army, it's not like dispell or power scrolls which you can have more than one.
Imo army #4 is the one that's more in character, it's the one that as the more pestilen look :p , I dont think jezzail teams fit in an army of clan pestilans.

Have you thought about using the Bubonic Court list from the Lustria book? You'd have plague monks as Core and Censer Bearers as special, while still being able to take your clanrats and slaves, albeit the clanrats w/o spears. Just thought I'd drop the idea...I'm currently pondering doing a pestilens list myself as plague causing rats seem like fun and I'm not a fan of skyrye skaven armies...

Yeah I have thought about using the Lustria list but whatever you can make a decent enough list just using the codex IMO. I have new list now, posted below please let me know if this fits fluffwise for Pestilens because that is the theme of my army. This new list is not a big change but I feel it is nearing the end (but I would like some opinons so I don't purchase and ask for the wrong things for Christmas).

Hero
Plague Priest w/ Flail and Liber Bubonicus - 114 pts.

Core Units

Special Units
20 Plague Monks w/ Full Command, Banner of the Swarm and Extra Hand Weapons - 205 pts.
20 Plague Monks w/ Full Command and Extra Hand Weapons - 175 pts.

Rare Units
8 Plague Censer Bearers - 102 pts.

Total - 1004 pts.

I think that you'll definately need a full command on the clanrat units, otherwise they're pretty much useless. Maybe lose a couple of plauge censer bearers or a few of the slaves.

Also, you have 2 identical plauge units costing different amounts of points. Does one of them have a banner?

#4 is definatly the best, no nasty jezzails.

You'll have to drop two slaves to make this list legal - 1000pt is 1000pt, not 1004.

Apart from that, it looks pretty sound. It's very much in theme with pestilens, though you should look into the Lustria rules.

Yep, I agree with Frodo34x, make it legal. The list is pretty solid though, I wouldn't go looking at the Lustria rules, but then that's probably just cause I preffer not to use "special campaign" army rules.

Dropping a few Censer bearers and getting the army below 1000 and also giving full commands to the clan rat units. Standards atleast are very useful.

Alright I'll make it legal, thanks for all the advice.
