    Plague Priest (Lvl 1)
    additional hand weapon
    102pts

    30 clan rats
    spear, shield
    standard bearer
    158pts

    30 clan rats
    spear, shield
    standard bearer
    158pts

    30 giant rats
    2 pack masters
    106pts

    30 plague monks
    standard, grand banner of superiority
    250pts

    hellpit abomination
    235pts

    All comments greatly appreciated

    I'm just a noob to this game, but why don't you have musicians in the units? a free reform and easier rallying seem well worth the points

    I would give the plague priest either a flail or a plague censer.

    Autarch Shalan has a point musicians are even more handy in the new edition.

    I think i would rather go with rat ogres instead of HPA.

    I always give my plague monks the plague banner think it's more handy then banner of supiority.

    * I'd take a warplock-engineer instead, with a warp-energy condenser and the level 1 wizard upgrade. Always swap out for the Warp Lightning spell. *

    30 clan rats
    spear, shield
    standard bearer
    158pts

    * Needs a musicain. *

    30 clan rats

    158pts

    * Needs a musicain. *

    30 giant rats
    2 pack masters
    106pts

    * You need a packmaster for every 5 giant rats. *

    30 plague monks
    standard, grand banner of superiority
    250pts

    * Needs a musicain. I never liked this banner, but don't know why. Never used magic banners much either, hehe. *

    hellpit abomination
    235pts

    * I'd drop him for more units and some weapon teams. *

    All comments greatly appreciated
    Hopefully, my opinions help.

    The book says that you can have a MAXIMUM of 1 packmaster for every 5 rats.
    I think it's intended to stop people taking unfluffy units of packmasters...

    Still doesn't sound right to me, but, oh well...

    I run packs of 15 to 18, in three ranks, which allows the packmaster(s) to attack with their whips. I also run these packs between my skaven blocks, so they stay protected til they get close enough to charge.

    I'd also spend the points for the MM upgrade, since that 1 point to LD actaully helps out.

    Just my opinions.
