hehe,I'm considering taking the great seer himself,Thanquoal the lord of all skaven.
I was planing a lesser seer on a bell,but after some deliberation have decided against it,
so i'll be taking Thanquoal and boneripper,just wanted some feedback on this decision.
My main concern is he too cheesy as i try to command a fun force not an over the top,double DW or 2 HPA list.
thanks in advance to those Warlords who answer
Personally I think a normal Grey Seer with 3 powerstones and Skalm is a much better choice and is still cheaper then Thanquol.
@ethsar46 first off the regular seer gets D3 stones on just 3.
i would take Thanqual over a regular seer any day, no matter the points difference. being able to reroll your warpstone 1's is awesome, not to mention he gets 5 spells, 4+ ward save! and has a bad ass bodyguard, no boneripper isnt super H2H but he does pack a punch and he has a warpfire thrower, which rocks!
you wont be dissapointed with Thanqual, and on another note, try out Ikit, hes a bad ass too, actually the only special character i dont like is Deathmaster. he costs too much and now he doesnt have the bands of power. i feel hurt and betrayed, hes no longer the stegadon, slaughtermaster killer he used to be. i just tried Trench out and i thought he was not going to be very good, but to my surprise he was awesome, 5 attacks; 4 at S4, 1 at S3, a 4+ ward save and a sweet ability if you got the blocks to run him around in
i have been trying to stray away from special characters and made a warlord with a bone breaker body guard, which works great, but i dont think i would every take a reg seer unless i was taking the bell for some insane reason, that thing sucks imo.

over priced warpfire thrower? for a bit more points you get 5 S5 attacks, T5, US3 and undead! all for like 10 more points, oh and im pretty sure he can move and fire his projector, so hes basically the best upgrade there is in the game if you ask me for the point difference you stated.
your reg seer can NOT re-roll power stones, thanqual gets to re-roll all his warpstone 1's, the important number to have re-rolled, no reg seer can do this, and to be able to save your seer from a miscast really is priceless, especially when you are going for the dreaded 13th spell!
uhh 4+ ward save...yes please! lol what happens if you fail your look out sir, or they have a spell or item that targets individual models or every model in the unit? those are somewhat common.
@ the bearded one: yes that book was awesome, if you want to read a really awesome Thanqual fight read gotrek and felix Dragonslayer and beastslayer, him and Max get into it hardcore!
hes pretty awesome in elfslayer as well
