Default 2250 Skaven List for Tournament

So I know there is in theory a new Skaven book coming out this summer, but it looks like I am still going to have two tournaments at my local store before the release (well, its not usable until its been out a month). As such I am hoping to get some recommendations on how to improve my list. I’ve played 4 games with it, 2 of which ended with less then 200 points in loses (which I more than made up with quarters, general and standards), 1 close win and one game where I got absolutely slaughtered. My loss was to a very fast Lizardman army with 2 stegadons. I didn’t roll well and he was on me turn 2. So, suggestions welcome:


Lord
Grey Seer
Eye of the Horned Rat
Screaming Bell
460 points

Upgraded warp-energy condenser
Supercharged warp-power accumulator

Uhm youre slave units are too expensive, those are in fact 4 units of 20 each with musician, right?

All in all there aint alot to change in the list. Id maybe consider dropping 1 or 2 Jezzails to get points for some other distracting unit, and maybe one Waroscroll for a dispelscroll but thats about it

2 Units of 20 at 44 points each. thanks for the catch, corrected above.

The army has 7 dispel dice, do you think I need dispel scrolls? I know its not a lot, but half the time they are only going to kill clanrats or slaves.

YES you absolutely need DS, especially against DE, HE, and a magic heavy daemon army.

Need is a strongly debateable word. Im not a fan of many scrolls myself but one can very often come in handy. Either against some "one use arcane item" or when the opponent rolls 23+ on 5 dice for something bad. But in general your magical defence will probably be enough.

Oh btw a Warpstone Charm on 1 character can really help out, specially on the engineers since Warplightning frequently rewards the caster with wounds

As a skaven player and a fan of the Doom bell I would suggest you take that Amulet that gives you a 4+ ward save instead of the warpstone amulet. When you roll doubles alot Like me, being able to save vs un nessary wounds during the shooting phase. Also, being a large target, the bell seems to be a draw for people trying to snipe my caster riding it.

Just a tip.
