is it possible to field a competitive list with no slaves and very few units of clanrats?
I was thinking a pestilens-heavy Skaven list consisting of Plague Monks as core, plague cencers and wind globadiers as special and plague furnaces and catapults to round out the force. (possibly a warp lightning cannon, and maybe some clanrats just to have access to the wind globe weapons teams).
I have the Army Book and am willing to write up a rough list, but first I need to know if this type of army is viable. It's a themed list and I just don't care for painting a rediculous amount of slaves and clansrats.
Thanks ion advance: Beardy Bearderson
Well first off, remember, 8th ed is looming, and we all know what that means.... MASSIVE CLANRATS!
Their so cheap im writing a list with two units of 40!
and clan pestielins army can be very nice, their defitnaley the dominant clan in the new book.
But if you planning to go heavy of the plague monks,
remeber you'll need lord skrolk(he makes plague monks count as core) meaning you could take nothing but plague monks.
but remember, their pricey( 7 pts if i remember) and no armor !
But the amount of attacks they can throw out is insane!
As for clan rats, their going to be great is 8th Ed. as Ive already mentioned!
Three ranks with spears! only 5 points, and able to fiend in massively deep blocks, making them, 9 times out of 10, stubborn!
And also, a heavily themed army, with a special character, and some multiple slighty deathstar units (i.e atleast 2 furnaces and LOTS of censer bearers) can get cries of cheese and make you not very liked in some clubs
but thats just my opinion, and all plague army would be cool stuff though
I suggested the same idea a few weeks ago, but that was a before 8th ed.
In 8th, you'd have to have some clanrats, since Skrolk was just officially assassinated out of the game, unless you're at 3000 to 4000.
I posted an army list for clan pestilens a little while ago, check that out.
If someone helps you, rep them.
In a votewar you don't vote on a single match, you vote on the entire round. Got that?
Yes, it is viable...so long as you take Throt the Unclean and have large units of giant rats. This is actually what I am planning to do for 8th.
Or go for the Eshin-based "my entire army is either infiltrating or burrowing" tactic (which is more for fun than winning, and involves having a single unit of 107+ Night Runners, or 93+ with slings).
