    Doubles tournament list feedback wanted

    Hi all,


    Been playing skaven on and off for a while... A doubles tournament is coming up and my friend and myself are considering working together, he will be taking warriors of chaos while myself skaven.

    To start with his list

    Heroes

    Exalted hero with sword of swift striking

    Core

    35 chaos warriors, hw&s, mark of Slannesh

    Special

    2 Gorebeast chariots - mark of Slannesh


    For me I'm looking at taking the following

    Lords
    Grey seer

    Core

    30 clanrats - full command, hw&s , PWM (grey seer goes here)

    30 rat slaves - hw&s

    30 rat slaves hw&s

    Special

    5 Jezzails

    10 Globidiers with bombardier

    Rare

    2 warp lightning cannons


    I know most ppl like taking units of gutter runner with slings and poison, although I am going for more a clan Skyre themed army and am trying to avoid eshin units. And we were talking about running the Globidiers behind the chaos warriors for fun...

    So any feedback would be welcomed.

    Regards

    Let's take stock of your lists:
    You are suspicious allies, which means you can panic each other, but don't get any leadership benefits. Magic-wise you can buff each others' units until the Skaven decide to backstab, after which you will have to share power dice.

    This implies that both armies need a low-level caster, preferably something that hexes/augments units so it can be cast into battle - which is where the Warriors army want to be all the time. Based on this I suggest the following for the WoC player:

    17 Nurgle Warriors
    Full Command
    Shields/Halberds
    Banner of Discipline

    Yes, this unit is horribly expensive, it is also one of the best CC blocks in all of Warhammer, and works very will with the general:

    Chaos Sorcerer lvl 2: Shadow
    Chaos Familiar
    Charmed Shield
    T.Preservation

    That 3 spells from SHADOW, which has a signature spell that will cause most CC units to hit Warriors on 5's, which would be 6's with Nurgle. It's also good for a Skaven ally with Enfeebling/Withering combined with Plague magic.

    He can flesh out the rest with Trolls, which are the best value unit we have, or Skullcrushers, which are the most deadly.

    What would I want from my Skaven Ally?
    1. Doomwheels (frankly these are better than Gorebeast Chariots)
    2. Plague Magic for hex/buff spells
    3. A big slave block to soak up the damage
    4. Ranged attacks to blast into the slaves CC opponents
