Should i start collecting skaven now?? I've seen people on many forums saying they're getting re-done. Should i get models now or wait till August?? From what I've heard of imp. Guard it's better to buy stuff now because the battleforce is better now then the new one being released, Think this will apply to skaven?? cos i don't wanna waste my money
If you like the look of models/ can get a good deal than yes I would see no problem in getting them now. Especially you core units as you are still going to need those regardless of the new rules.

Yeah I'd agree with you, if you can find a good deal for clanrats/slaves/stormvermin then I'd hop on it!

If you start now, it also means that you'll have the core of an army painted up and ready for battle so you can get to grips with the new book straight away.

Go for it, I only just bought the battleforce/army book/engineer yesterday. If you buy now the only thing that will be a waist of money will be the army book but you could just get the models now and wait till release for the book.
I would vote for now.
There is a thread of how to build a skaven army on a budget I previously did in this forum. Basically that battleforce is a godsend, and gives you the ability to build the following with some imagination and forethoughts: No other army can do this for the cost of 1-2 Battalions.
