There are already a ton of threads talking about the best and worst armies. I'd just like to know what the rankings would look like without taking the cheesy, WAAC characters or units or items.
Skaven are clearly one of the top armies. How good are they without multiple Hellpit Abominations and tons of slaves?
How good are High Elves without Teclis?
How good are Daemons without Kairos Fateweaver and tons of Flamers?
How good are Warriors of Chaos without the Chosenstar?
Not to start a separate discussion, but it seems to be that the "best" armies are only the best because of a few key things. If you take those things away (think a semi-competitive or casual game), what happens? Does a mid-tier army like Dwarfs or Vampire Counts shoot up to the top? Or are High Elves always going to be good, no matter what you do with them (for example)?
