maddermax is right, I'm looking forward to this more than the update to my space puppies army

Although at present I'm now looking towards starting my Skaven as a clan Morrs style warlord army for tournament play, but we shall see :D I'm not sure if I can wait another 2 weeks till the proper information to come out

I think out of all the info I'm most interested to know about the Vermin Lord, Doom Wheel and what they are doing to make Storm Vermin more appealing to field.

Looking forward to seeing what the new battalion box contains too

Yeah, lucky you, 2 updated armies in 2 months! If skaven come out as beefed up as your space puppies were, I might have to work pretty hard to pull any wins against you for a while , at least until I get a new book for bretonnians in a year or two (cross fingers, hope hope hope).

With Grey Seers Ld7, it seems Clan Skyre will be even more powerful, with pestilens following close behind.

It's always the case with ANY army that has the 4 main factions - the Moulder, or Khornate Faction is only good against certain armies, steamrolling them, but weak against others, and is in third place. 4th Place goes to the Eshin, or Slaanesh list, Nurgle, or Pestilens goes second, and 1st is the Skyre, or Tzeentchian Faction.

It's been like that since at least Hordes of Chaos - including the Beasts of Chaos, Skaven, even the Daemons of Chaos as well.

I dont see any reason what so ever that the should lose it. Clan Eshin are ninjawannabes all of them. They do not fight in ranked blocks.

That could be very sweet indeed. Sadly I dont think that will happen, its too soon for such a model to already be sculpted

Indeed, hence my "foawk Greyseers w LD7" line. I dont like it

While on the subject, I REALLY hope slaves becomes S, T 2 models if they are to keep their pointcost...

I am not a fan of the old doomwheel, but the new one looks nice. Very nice. So do the character models. W00T!!!

Also, the stormvermin are a HUGE improvement over the current models. One thing though, $59.50 (cdn) for 20? Crazy. Clanrats are 39.50..... damn, though not too surprising I guess.

Heard Queek is the Skaven version of Konrad and Lokhir Fellheart, with mega bonuses against dwarves.
