ok guys my first lost was today to some little #### w/ skaven and he was usen the back of the book clan pestilence army and had 3 clanrat units with ratling guns a warp cannon and such and a ridiculous plague lord and plague chiefs i used a flame cannon for panic and gobbo hewer they worked nicely but apparently frenzied units are immune to phychology so that didnt work and other suchn things so i want to hear how u guys deal w/ them lend another stunty some help
i have spent much time pondering this very question, (my friend was skaven, in the days of proxy, now he's VC) i thought of an army in the back of the armybook called overground defense, what you do is to make a bunch of ranger squads, and attack their units of clanrats in before they get to fire their ratling guns, essentially making him waste 180 points, also hit him hard with one squad of miners and sack his warp lightining cannon with the other squad, i wouldn't use gyros, i would fill those slots with dogs of war pikemen (eight pts. each, fights in 4 ranks), but protect them with 2 units of 12 warriors i would also use a unit of slayers, but protect them with a squad of warriors, don't even bother with shooting units, make an all combat army, also if he is going to be cheesy, (and he was), then give a dwarf lord a great weapon, gromril armour and a shield, Master rune of spite, rune of stone, rune of resistance, and rune of fortitude. (i dont know if skaven has anything with killing blow, or not, but if it does, then drop the fortitude, and resistace and get the master rune of steel).
Another option is to make a guild expedition army, (again i say if he is going to be chessy, then you have the leniancy to be chessy also)
Mr. Burns: Why is everyone being so insolent today?
Smithers: Well sir, it is christmas...
Mr. Burns: I'll decide when its christmas!
the back of the book armies aren't legal unless agreed by both players.Originally Posted by The Pink Panther
I like the gyrocopter for this job, as you can draw is frenzied units out of the comabt zone by always fleeing from is charge, and the template is devastating. go after the unit with is general, withouthim is Ld goes to none, and the game is won. or make sure the gyro march blocks is units, to maximise the shooting you have.
the hewer is good, and long drong's slayer pirates are devastating, move up to him, and shoot, then stand and shoot as your reaction, and still get those S4 piercing attacks!
use a flame cannon and anything to keep him aking leadership tests, he will fail eventually. Lots of shooty/big boom(aka cannon, flame cannon, the works) THats all i have to say
