    Slaves in the new book

    If anyone that doesn't already know, skaven are rumoured to get a +2 CR bonus for outnumbering. Has anyone realised how amazing this is for your humble units of skaven slaves?

    Consider this: A unit of 40 slaves with banner. Normally, you would be laughed at for putting command on a throwaway unit like slaves. But listen. This slave unit will now receive +6 SCR!!! (1 for banner, 3 ranks, 2 for outnumber)That is amazing for an 85 point unit (current book cost). Vampire Counts eat your heart out!

    Current book cost. They may well (and probably justifiably) go up in cost. Also I can see them possibly being an exception to the rule, if it is even in the book.

    From what I have heard, to keep up with army creep, everything is either going down or staying the same cost.

    Skaven don't really need to worry about codex creep as much as other armies as they're still very competitive with the SADs. Slaves may go up a point to bring them into line with goblins, but the problem with low cost units is that as you reduce it by a point the percentage decrease gets larger and larger.

    Sounds good on paper but slaves cant have standards. That gives them 5 combat res, which is still good, but only if the rumour is true, which it might not be.

    Slaves could have a standard if you put a BSB with em! Bad idea but its possible

    Ive got a pretty good thing going with my SAD army, but Id like a reason to use some other stuff that I never though. I hate running a swarm army.

    Saying "We're competitive as a SAD army" pisses me off, Skaven are meant to be about swarminess! Relying on a small number of expensive units isn't how we should be doing things.

    Personally, i'd like to see Skyre taken down a little and other clans buffed a bit to balance it out.

    A boost to Eshin and Moulder would be good. Maybe Assassins like the Dark Elf ones? That would be nasty.

    Makes Banner of the Swarm quite good then. +3CR for outnumbering! Not bad for the pts.
