He is such a badass character. I finally got to playtest him in my 1850 list against a stegadon heavy lizzardmen army, and he alone killed almost 1k points.
dropped one engine of the gods Steggie and one ancient with skink cheif.
Mount him on a juggernaught, challenge the model on the stegadon, they think easy win since the steggie can fight. use skulltaker to KB the Steggie, the use the jugger to KB the skink (if you roll well).
Glad to hear it. Just got into Daemons and am really pumped to use this guy. How did you field him? I was thinking of putting him in a unit of Bloodletters to protect my herald BSB.
run him in my bloodcrushers unit, making it 4 strong. but when he killed the stegadons, he was alone the bloodcrushers had already died.
What about running him in a unit of fleshounds?
If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
Im sure you could, theres more wounds but less armour. i like to have hard hitting cav so i keep him with the blood crushers.
My fleshhounds serve a different purpose
Lord: Bloodthirster = Dark Insanity, Armor Of Khorne, Collar Of Khorn 535pts
Heroes: Herald Of Khorne = Chariot, Soul Hunger, Armor Of Khorne 215pts

This is one crazy army skulltaker is to expensive with a chariot but a bloodthirster is good enougth. i havent lost once with this army
my bloodthirster got charged by three chariots and shot by three bolt throwers and to 20 man squads of archers over two turns he only lost 1 wound, after that the game was over.
im running mine in an 1850 RTT so no BT.
I use mainly a Khorne/Nurgle list.
I unit of Demonettes for speed along with hounds.
Im drawing alot against a 3 Stegadon Lizzy list.
Azzabazza your 2250 list is illegal because you only have two cores and in 2000 upwards you need three.
BTW i do like skulltaker moreso in 40k than in fantasy but he doesnt have the locus ability to confer onto my khorne units, and this is why i used to run him in my big block of plaguebearers so he had a lot of defence against missile and magic so he wasnt runnig solo by turn 3
There was one game i played with skullltaker which really demonstrated his power in which the high elf player i was playing practiccally killed everything arpart a unit of flesh hounds and skulltaker on his jugg. after being breathed on by a high elf lord's star dragon i st out for it to claim a moral victory.i managed to get into combat with it eventually the lord and the dragon didnt do anything to skulltaker. i was then cockyand said that i could kill his star dragon witth one dice and i hit and killling blowed the dragon, then my jugg killing blowed the lord. skulltaker then went on with the help of the hounds to kill tyrion and a 15 man unit of swordmastersa and a 20 man unit of whit lions and also a white lion chariot. HE WAS INSANE
he was only good in that one large 4000 point game i played in 2000 point games he has done nothig for me, but he is cool and if you like him you use him.
The High Player didn't give the Prince some Dragon Armour? He paid for that mistake...
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
