Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all i managed to get a couple of games with the new skaven rules last night and i must admit that was the best fun i have had in a long time!!!
I played a couple of 1000pt lists the first one being pestilens heavy and the second list skryre.
From the first game i must say plague censer bearers are absolutely insane for their points cost. 3 of them took out a unit of bloodcrushers without breaking a sweat!
The plague furnace is awesome but with no save high strength hits can easily be gotten rid of (as i found out when a unit of bloodletters with a herald started taking potshots at it)
The skryre list was amazingly good fun though. The warlock engineer got rid of the Nurgle herald with Cracks call in his first magic phase (had to laugh at a fat diseased demon trying to jump out of the way ) this made the game so much more easier (no more regen for the plague bearers yay!)
The doomwheel is freaking awesome it took out the remainder of the unit of plaguebearers, a unit of fleshhounds and horrors to boot. And a total laugh to play with due to its randomness.
I know my post is a bit all over the place (and not much detail) but i honestly had so much fun playing with this army that i will definitely be getting my hands on as many units as possible (played counts as yesterday)
What I want to know is what experiences have other people had with the army book? What spectacular successes and epic failures have u had?
With the amazing variety of units you can field in a skaven army i feel u can have a very competitive army and still have a lot of fun with it.
What are your thoughts
There is a new Skaven book!? Man ive been out of the loop for too long... must get my contact to get me a copy hehe. Will post feedback once ive had a read.

I've played a few games with it and seen some amazing successes.
Honestly I was disappointed. The reason for it was the amazing successes. I wasn't trying to build a balanced list or even trying to win. I cherry-picked all the new units to try and give them a shot and see how they work and I just brutalized my opponents army. It was a 2250 pt game and at the end of the battle he had his slaan priest, 2 temple guard and 1 saurus cavalry left.
The only thing I LOST was 2 jezzails, the abomination and 2 mortar teams.
