C&C welcome quick quick.
Pipes are never worth it and you don't want anyone charging the Grey Seer or you lose. I'd spring for a Ward, maybe some type of Scroll. Also can't have two Enchanted Items.
Storm Banner is much better than Under-Empire, again you want the BSB in combat approximately never. Give him a Shield and leave him be.
Other casters look fine, although put a Censer on that Priest.
WAAAAAAAAY over equipped on the Slaves. Send them naked, with Shields at the VERY most. They are to die not to fight. Musicians are pro.
If the Clanrats fight, make them much bigger. If they're wounds, Musician only and naked, but slightly bigger. Skaven always wants bigger.
Rat Ogres look good, fan of the 2x2 setup to limit the return swings and counter charge avenues.
Snare Nets and a Champ?! *faints* Slings + Poison = best unit in the Army Book. Also bump to 10 if you can, bigger.
Doomwheel is underrated and sexy.
You need more blocks as you're to invested in characters and fancy things. Cut some upgrades and maybe a hero Wizard for a second Slave block, they're the best unit in the game, trust me.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.
Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
thanks for the advice i dont really have enough models for another unit of slaves right now but i found something that i really like instead.
grey seer 270pts
chieften 122 pts
bsb, storm banner, halberd
lvl 2 wiz, warp energy condenser, warp token
50 slaves 102pts
20 clanrats x2 240pts
shields, spears, FC
4 rat ogres 184pts
10 gutter runners 180pts
slings, poison attacks
6 jezzail teams 120pts
should i swap the jazzails for PWGs and would it be worth getting a 5 man squad of plague censor bearers
Dont think you can have 4 ogres and 3 packmasters. The most is 2:1, and I would personally give the grey seer talisman of preservation or some kind of ward save just incase you encounter any Lore of Death.

"Do you want cigarettes on that?"
"What do I look like? A Mary? Of course I want cigarettes!"
I kinda liked the idea of geared up slaves, even though their bs sucks, they could be useful at pepering units you dont want to wast your good fire power on. I've always wanted to try it but alas have always found myself deciding I could spend the points better. Also I like to fire warpfire dangerously close to big blocks of slavees. So being able to keep a distance from foes could pay for itself. (good target for slings- fanatics)
