No slaves? Especially with a shooty army, they are really nice to bait with and shoot into.

Except for the lack of slaves and the bad spelling this looks like a pretty standard magic heavy skaven list. Amazing? not particulary...

the plague priest does not even have a plague censer, what a waste >.<. But yea 3 man tunnel teams, and the lack of slaves really make this list ineffective. I would also suggest a warpstone charm on the grey seer.

Cheers I fergot about the charm.

The reasn no slaves is that the grey seer will only put them at Ld9. Also I have globaders for baiting.

the slaves aren't there to stick around, so their ld is largely irrelevant. They are there to screen, bait and generally be a nuicanse to your opponent.

the rest of your army is only ld9 as well, so i think thats a flawed logic. There is just absolutly no reason not to take a unit of slaves for each unit of clanrats you take. They are a whooping 54 pts for a unit of 25 with a musician. They are amazing redirectors, can be used to tie down units, and be used to shield, and can even be used to flank units. The skaven army is about numbers as your troops are not strong or tough, therefore brining lots of them is the key to success.

I dont know about the rest of you but a great skaven unit is the 6 man night runner unit. Give them extra hand weapons, and it only costs you 42 points for a unit that will ahve ~9 attacks on the charge. Plus, they're a huge nuisance. They work great in my army, although if you're going for standard fare shooting and magic, and don't get me wrong this is great in that respect, slaves would be better.

Oh, and good call on the banner of rage on the monks. It is amazingly good.

Oh, and last thing (I sound repetitive) your headcount is 120 + bell and cannon. IMO this is not enough for skaven in 2000 points
