A big chance presents itself for me to field a 6000 points pure skaven force against a currently unknown opponant(s), for a weekend long (if not longer) battle, still haveing trouble finding a table that will accomodate such numbers. Anyways with this in mind i'm proposing a list Vs all, blending as many skaven principles as possible (as well as the new models of course!). Note: this is a freindly game not some tornament climax (be good if it was tho), anyways here is the list, apologies in advance if you fall asleep reading it halfway through
Grey Seer - 515pts
Screeming Bell, Feedback Scroll, Dispel Scroll
Ikit Claw - 395pts
Plague Priest - 291pts
Plague Furnace, Plague Censor, Dispel Scroll
Chieftain - 45pts
Chieftain - 82pts
Golden sigil blade, Additional Hand weapon, Potion of foolhardness

Weeping Blade, Additional Hand weapon

4 units of 30 skaven slaves + musicians - 248pts
2 units of 39 clanrats - 281pts
full commands, Ratling Guns, spears and shields
2 units of 40 clanrats - 281pts
full commands, Poisoned wind mortars, spears and shields
39 storm vermin - 273pts
full command, warp fire thrower, shields
2 units of 6 rat ogres - 540pts
Master ogre, +2 packmasters (each unit)
8 warplock jezzails - 170pts
2 units of 10 gutter runners -360pts
slings, poisoned attacks
40 plague monks - 280pts
full command, banner of dripping death
2 Doomwheels - 300
2 warp lightning cannons - 180
2 hell pit abominations - 470
2 plague claw catapults - 200
And breath... Love to talk a bit of tactics, but as i dont know who or what I shall be facing, i theorise one massive force attack to sweep the opponant off the board before any real plan can be ammassed to foil my ratty hords (partly borrowed i might add) I feel i have all bases covered, working on an idea of attacking in waves... slaves -- clanrats -- the big stuff, but im sure this principle will change very quickly, all the rares act as tag teams, and who knows a dreaded thirteenth spell may just crop up somewhere... pushing near 400 models too.
Thanks for reading. Thoughts?
I think you're missing the BSB upgrade for your chieftain (Unless you've missed the total there). Not much to say, really...at 6k army selection doesn't tend to be that relevant - it's a matter of who can kill the most quickest . I'd swap the Storm banner from your BSB onto your stormvermin and if possible, give him some defensive equipment. Granted, he's not as important compared to a smaller game, but it would be a shame to lose him quickly if you want that section of your line to hold.
An HPA double team combo-d with some rat ogres could really spoil someone's day...
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
