Hi, tomorrow I'll be playing my first battle in the local shop league.
I figured I'd show you all my list in hope of some comments or tips for tomorrow.
I have never fought this guy using his skaven before, but he runs a mean gunline Dwarf army. Basically I don't know what to expect.
There are some rules for this league that have effect on my list (some of which I do not like all that much), these are the most important ones:
Only one lord lvl caster allowed.
No items that ignore or influence miscasts (puppet )
I'm typing this by heart because I'm at college now.
Lvl 4 Tzeentch, Talisman of preservation, Charmed Shield, Blood of Tzeentch, Word of Agony. Blood to prevent miscasts and broken concentration
Lvl 2 (death) Enchanted shield, Dispel Scroll (maybe Third eye, but I'm not sure).
Exalted Tzeentch, Bsb, Doom Totem, Stream of Corruption, Hw & Shield.
16 Warriors of Tzeentch, Musician, Standard Bearer - Raptorous Standard, Hw & shields.
10 Marauder Horsemen of Khorne, Musician, Banner, Flails, Javelins.
30 Marauders of Khorne, GW, Full command (for keeping my lvl 2 out of challenges).
Lvl 4 and bsb go in the Warriors, the lord takes the challenges (biggest save and Word of Agony should give him a decent chance).
Lvl 2 goes with the Marauders.
Depending on the amount and size of his infantry I'll shoot with my Cannon or grind away at his troops (I have only used it to shoot once, but I scored a direct hit on a solo caster so I have hope).
I'll deploy the Trolls and Shrine on either side of my Warrior block with the Marauders next to the Shrine.
Any suggestions or tips?
I have one huge suggestion: THIRD EYE OF TZEENTCH, facing their own plague magic is a nightmare for Skaven armies.
Marauders should go flails or they probably won't survive the first round against a horde.
Sona si Latine loqueris.
If your Lvl 4 has the talisman of preservation he might as well ride a disc, that way you can make sure to keep him within 12" of the trolls at all times too. Word of agony is not really worth it on him then I think, so use those points to pay for his disc. I understand if you don't have the model and time is short though. Also, putting stream of corruption on a flying guy is ridiculously effective!
Also +1 about third eye, it's awesome against skaven and on low lvl sorcs in general. Especially death, as the death spells you get may be quite situational.
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
I put my lord on a disk, dropped the Word ad got 3rd Eye for my lvl2.
All in all, it made no difference.
He turned up with his HE army.
I lost, I lost hard!
I had some horrible dice rolls (some good ones to tho) and serious bad luck in general.
I moved my general outside of 12'' of my Trolls and made a bad move (didn't charge where I should have).
Anyway, I've learned allot about some units in my army, I learned allot in general.
Thanks for the replies!
I hope next time I'll do better
