    1500 pts first list, fixed models !

    Hi guys,

    Some local 40k players are simply tired and switched to fantasy... unfortunately, I don't own any models, so i asked a friend to borrow his and so far so good, but his models are still on sprue and quite limited. So here's the idea of a list i came up with, using IoB and Battle box models (and lot of rank filling !)


    Grey Seer. 240
    Battle standart bearer, Stormbanner, shield. 122
    Engineer, lvl 2, generator. 115
    Engineer (for slaves)
    Engineer (for slaves)
    40 storm vermin, full command, razor banner. 350
    40 plague monks, full command, plague banner. 335
    20 Clanrats, full command. 100
    50 Slaves, Mus. 102
    50 Slaves, Mus. 102

    1500 pts (1496)

    From what I've read on some forums, the way to go with Skaven according to shooting is include some (warmachines mainly and some gutters for countering the enemy) or Storm banner, forbidding both players shooting, but for us it's a choice.. as I have a limited range of models, I went the banner way. If i were to spend money on these, it would be on 2x HPA and then some upgrades on the engineer to reach 2000 pts. What do you thibk ? Is this a viable list considering the limited models I have ?

    Space Wolves W0 L1 D1
    8th Edition come back game count : Skaven W0 L0 D2 Games

    A very good list for the models you have. Your plans for the future are quite sound as well. Make sure you make the most of your HPAs - they're expensive and will get shot a lot (hence you have the Storm Banner, which is a very good idea), so try to keep them away from big cannons and things like that as much as possible.

    Storm Banner only affects non magic shooting, and most Skaven shooting counts as magical with the Warpfire Weapons rule. Just a heads up.

    @ BrockSamson. OMG. Suddenly WLC are more appealing to me. I'll consider this too... Money wise 1x HPA = around the same as 2x WLC anyways... miam.

    I've had great success on my first game with this list, and I do see where slaves are handy (one squad kept locked in combat a WoC squad for 2 whole turns before the game had to end...). But I wonder how much they are really worth, game wise, because I really liked my Stormvermins and my Monks, so I thought I would try 2x Vermin + 1 Monk squad instead of 1x vermin, 1x Monk and 2x Slaves. Do you think it is still possible to play skavens without slaves ?

    Thank you!!

    P.S. Also, Faqs doesn't allow us to shoot with the storm banner.

    I do it frequently. Clanrat hordes + anything Clan Skryre (esp. WLC and Weapon Teams) + Plague Monk horde with a Plague Furnace = Ultimate death.

    I tend to steer away from slaves in combat lists... no need for a tarpit when I'm marching forward. But in a shooting list they are a staple, you need to hold up the enemy as long as possible.
