8th Edition Winsauce: 2250 Skaven
While I'm working on some build requests for some of you jerks (Sicarius? Seriously? :P) and stuff, I just thought about Fantasy a bit.
I'm not really jiving with it just yet, mostly because I haven't had many chances to play since 40k is king around here. But reading through the rulebook, discussions with folks online and such handy resources as 3++ and YTTH have definitely helped me get the old thinking parts working.
2250 is the standard locally, so here's an idea for a shooty/magic/MSU Skaven dealy.
Grey Seer - General, Dispel Scroll
Magic is fun, but only when I get it off.
Grey Seer - Power Scroll
Dreaded 13th with IF? Yes please!
Warlock Engineer level 1 w/ Doomrocket, Warp Energy Condenser
Another dose of Warp Lightning hopefully as well as the odd extra Power die and the hilarity that is the DOOM Rocket
3x Warlock Engineers
Hi, I'm a 15 point Hero who can cockblock and annoy people all fucking day.
2x 30 Clanrats, shields, full command, Warpfire Thrower
Big bunkers for my Seers to hide in, Steadfast numbers and WFTs to start frying shit.
2x 10 Stormvermin, banner, Poisoned Wind Mortar
More MSU, more weapon teams, hell yeah!
2x 20 Slaves, slings, musician
Dirt cheap screens, flank anchors and 20 potentially poisoned sling shots for lulz.
2x 5 Giant Rats, 1 Packmaster
Hey, I'm an annoying 23 point unit, want to waste time shooting or charging me? No? Too fucking bad!
2x 5 Gutter Runners, Poisoned Attacks, Slings
Hi Fast Cav, fuck off! Also War Machines get dicked by massed poison.
1) Doomwheels are awesome, 2) Doomwheels are awesome
2x Warp Lightning Cannons
Hey look, a cannon that can blow up monsters and blocks. Sweet!
Total - 2250
So, I just shoot the piss out of you, magic your shit up, and if need be come in with lots of impact hits and steadfast blocks. Hopefully this will work.
Look out for more Fantasy stuff today, maybe I can get my Dr. Doom themed Army of Ratveria finished too :3
