Welcome to Librarium Online!
Today I'm asking for advice for an upcoming 2K pts Archaon's Horde (myself) vs. Skaven. This particular Skaven army will contain Deathmaster Snikch (an extremely dangerous assasin with 6 attacks at WS9, is a scout, and has a charge range of 14inches!). The downfall of the character however is that he costs over 500pts. FYI, all this info is found on the GW website, so I should be within the posting rules of this forum.
Regardless, I have never played against any army with special characters before and need some suggestions on how to deal with them. Below are some tactics I've came up with on my own:
1. Take a special character of my own (Crom or Archaon)
2. Take a Crom and 2 2nd level Sorcerors. Sorcerors will concentrate on Snikch. I don't believe with the amount of pts Snikch costs that he will have much magic defense.
3. Take mulitple heroes, instead of a Lord or special character.
4. Just take an Exalted Champ & Sorceror, and simply create a large horde of models (lots of marauders and warriors).
Thanks in advance in for any advice and suggestions.
