Welcome to Librarium Online!
I want the Skaven to be my 2nd army choice so i was just wanted to know which Lord &/or Heroes "special characters" are best to take as a main HQ choice or is it better not to take any "special characters" at all? thanx
No Special Characters, Grey Seer as a Lord, or a Grey Seer and a Warlord.

I often have combinations with special characters. You may want to try Ikit Claw + Warlord or Warlord Queek Headtaker + Grey Seer. They both work well.
Use the bell in friendly games only, though. Their cost once the grey seer is upgraded (i.e. any good) is at least 500 points. Although, if you have them as the only Lord choice they suit the job perfectly.
Lord : As far as special characters go, its Queek Headtaker. He's cheaper than a warlord on a backbreaker + gear, has mad stats, and gives you the ability to upgrade ONE stormvermin unit not pushing a bell.
Hero : I love my level 1 warlock with the warp-energy condenser. He's murder in small games, and still does great damage in larger ones. I always give him a pistol, as I think it nicely goes with his ability to shoot lighting ;D
Hero/Lord : I'm not impressed with the "mounts", maybe because I played skaven from the first book? No idea. I keep my chieftain/warlord on foot with a magic weapon to increase his strength, improve his armor save and give him a ward if I can afford it.
He's stuck into a large clanrat pack with shields, with either a WFT or PWM attached to it. I always have a pack of 3 to 4 rat ogres on a flank.
If a Grey Seer is what you want, I always slap one atop a bell. If that's not your thing, have him slog with a pack of stormvermin. Fangleader with the tail weapon and/or poisoned attacks (if you can afford them), and a 4+ ward for the Seer.
Just my two pieces of cheese
Hey thanx for the helpful advice.
