    2000pt Army List vs Skaven

    G'day,

    I've recently been playing a fair few games against my brother, who uses Skaven. I find it very difficult to defeat his army, but have recently managed to scrape a draw with the list that follows. Note that we play 7th Ed. (we don't have new rules yet).

    Also note that his army contained the (from what I can remember) the following units:

    Queek Headtaker
    20 Stormvermin (with 'Queek's Upgrades')
    30 Clanrats
    30 Clanrats
    20 Slaves
    20 Slaves
    20 Night Runners
    1 Warp Lightning Cannon
    40 Plague Monks
    1 Warlock Engineer
    1 Chieftain
    2 Warpfire Throwers
    1 Ratling Gun
    18 Giant Rats w/ 3 Packmasters
    4 Rat Ogres w/ Masterbred and 2 Packmasters

    I think that was all. Anyway, any ideas that would make this list better, or strategies that would help, would be much appreciated.

    War Hydra

    TOTAL : 1,997 pts

    ----------------

    The general idea was that the spearmen would form the centre, the black guard on one flank and the witch elves on the other flank with the supreme sorceress. On the outermost flanks would be the dark riders, with the mounted sorceress on the opposite flank to the supreme sorceress. I deployed the war hydras on the same flank, so I could destroy that portion of his army, and then proceed to hit the rest of his forces in the flank, which were (hopefully) being held up in combat.

    So if there are any flaws or you have any ideas on how to make this list better (I'd like to win for once ), it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Alandriakh

    Both of the sorceresses are illegal. You may only have 1 arcane item for each one and you may only have one dispel scroll in the entire army.

    You need to lose 3 of those dispel scrolls.

    A battle standard bearer would be very nice.

    Dark Riders should take crossbows. Don't bother with the standard, just take a musician.

    Thankyou for your advice hockeyman, and for pointing out my illegal sorceresses. I for some odd reason thought that you could have duplicates of common magic items. I tried a battle with a battle standard bearer, and I managed a solid victory. So thankyou very much. Rep for you.

    No problem. Tell me about it with the BSB. Got in two test games today at 1000 points for a local escalation league. Niether list had a BSB so I was failing tests all over the board. I think I'm going to shuffle my own list around.
