2000 Skaven for Compalicious Tourney

I know I said I was gonna wait until 8th, but fuck you!

Looks like our 2 FLGS are gonna be doing 1 tourney each every month, alternating between Fantasy and 40k as opposed to just 1 total every month.  Double the fun, right?

Double the comp is more like it :(

So, in the spirit of theme and lulz I am planning on taking this army. 

Ikit Claw
Warlock Engineer level 2 w/ Warpmusket, Warlock Optics, Dispel Scroll
Warlock Engineer level 2 w/ Warp Energy Condenser, Doom Rocket

3x Clanrat blocks, 24 rats with shields, standard bearer, musician, Plague Wind Mortar
3x Slave blocks, 20 things

2x Jezzail Teams, 5 strong
5 Poisoned Winder Globadiers, a bombardier and a Poisoned Wind Mortar

2x Doomwheels

Total: 2000
Models: 156 (multiple of 13 omzogozmgog!!)
PD: 9-10 plus Ikit's bound
DD: 6 plus scroll

So, we're all Skryre all day.  Ikit and the Engies join their Clanrats and sit back zapping lightning, shooting rockets, throwing warpfire, or sniping (Sniper Engie may deploy in trees just to piss people off).  Slaves run interference and block/flank.  PWM lob gaseous death across the board.  Jezzails 5n1p3z0r for b00m h34d5h0t5.  Doomwheels cause Doom!  As far as comp is concerned, I have all Skryre units, didn't load up on magic, have 6 20+ strong Core blocks and have under 10 base PD.  As far as telling comp to go fuck itself I have 4 Mortars, 2 Doomwheels, 10 Jezzails, tons of Warp Lightning, a one-shot WFT, and some cheap redirectors and skirmishers to be annoying and maybe kill things.

PWG aren't Skyre... :S

They're Pestilens, surely...

(I know fuck all about Skaven rules, but fluff? Shit yeah!)

Sadface TKE, PWG are totally Skryre. The dudes throwing globes at people, not the dudes swinging flails (PCBs).

Really? Pretty sure they were Pestilens in the 5th Ed Skaven Book...

I didn't get in until 7th, so I have no idea :D

They've always been Skryre. The association is there, but Pestilens didn't get any war machines of their own until this edition (Plagueclaw and Furnace).

What do you lot think of the Plagueclaw, by the way? From where I'm sitting it, the Furnace and the Pestilens banner that throws out a few no-armour-save hits could make the all-Pestilens army very viable - but I'm not sure it actually needs the catapults. Your thoughts?

Chumbalaya said...

It looks neat, nice and tough, but the S is so low. It needs Wither to be really useful, or just lots of low T baddies.

All Pestilens I think would be very viable. You've gotta take Skrolk and then 2-3 Furnaces backed by PCBs and maybe Catapults. Add in GRats or slaves as cheap redirectors and you're set. There's very little a big unit of monks plus a Furnace and PCBs can't kill.
