Ok I never played a game of War Fantasy but skaven were my little rats. Everything I had seen was to not give them spears and give them a shield instead. also I would suggest slaves. so you can tie up an enemy unit with something cheap and not worry so much about killing your clan rats. Also in only 1k I would take a Warp lightning cannon over the plauge monks. Now in a 2K army I would take a unit like yours but give them a plauge priest equiped with a bands of power and a warpstone ammy. and also attach a unit of cencer bearers. I hope this helps I know that collecting the rats can be troublesome.

spears aren't bad, but at this point total it is better with hand weapons for the increased cc save.

For the chieftain if you want him to live give him a shield and drop the talisman since the 6+ is unlikely to give him any benefit.

For the warlock drop the pistol and find a few extra points to try and get teh storm daemon.

As for the monks I say keep them, but give them the banner of burning hatred instead of the swarm since it will increase the number of kills that they get and thereby probably giving a higher bonus to combat res.

Overall quite a good list with some tweaking.

If a child asks how Santa lives forever, simply reply he drinks blood.

Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poke me in the ribs and cackle, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started to do the same thing to them at funerals.

Engineers aren't that good unless you take 2 or three, so I would drop him and add in another chieftain with an army battle standard with a war banner, this will make sure you will combat and make sure you don't run if you loose, somehow.

Also give the plaugebearers the Umbranner as it will make sure they survive to make use of their 3 A, as the enemy tends to shoot them down so they only get 1 rank bonus and the 4+ ward will stop this.

Hi all,
Thanks for the pointers! I ended up not running Skaven that night, but I will certainly take into account your suggestions for when I do run the furry littler fellas!

Cheers,
