Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just wanted to know for a starter Skaven army, would 1 or 2 Skaven Battalions & an Island Of Blood box set be a good start & what else would be good to add to that? thanx.
To start a Skaven army, having a warlord, 2 hordes of 40 clanrats, with weapon teams, 4 Rat Ogres with master moulder, warlock engineer, 6 giant rats, and 20 plague monks is a great start to a Skaven army.
I wouldn't suggest buying anymore until the new skaven release in January, check out those then start a new thread similar to this.
I would suggest more plague monks, a jezzail unit, a warplightning cannon, and stormvermin to continue.
Cool sounds good thanx.
Correction: a warlord, warlock engineer, 2 hordes of 40 clanrats and weapon teams, 6 rat ogres with packmasters and master moulder, 12 Giant rats with packmasters, and 40 plague monks.having a warlord, 2 hordes of 40 clanrats, with weapon teams, 4 Rat Ogres with master moulder, warlock engineer, 6 giant rats, and 20 plague monks
That's a lot of Skaven.
My 500pt force is made from 1 IoB box, 3 clanrats sets, and 2 moulder sets.
Its a bit much I know, but I like my forces to look a certain way :}
You can field all that for just 500 points?
I should've been clearer.
It was for the models, mostly the "naked" ones I wanted for my skavenslaves.
Warlock, 40 clanrats, 25 skavenslaves, and 17 giant rats (1 PM).
Throw in shields, one pack with spears, magic level/pistol/condenser, command, odd musician and you're a point shy of 500pts.
