Plague Priest(Lvl2, Plague Censor, Warp Scroll)-184
Warlock(Lvl2,Warpmusket,Warp-Energy Condenser)-135

29 Clanrats(Spears, Shields, Standard, Musician, Champion , Ratling Gun,Warlock here)-220

20 Slaves-40
20 Slaves-40

20 Plague Monks(Musician, Standard, Champion, Shourd of Dripping Death, Plague Priest here)-193
5 Plague Censer Bearers-80

Doomwheel-150

Thats 1261 pts, constructive critism welcome,

the-graven


Edit: I was thinking if I drop the clanrat units to 25 and drop the shourd of dripping death then I can take another unit of 5 PCB's, should I do this or would it weaken my units too much??
Another Edit: I could drop the clanrat units to 25 and drop the ratling guns and take a unit of 18 Plague monks with Musician, Standard, would this be wise, it will lower the amount of clanrats and destroy some shooting capability.

Drop the musket on the warlock, you won't get to use it much. I've never been a fan of the doomwheel and generally prefer either the plagueclaw or the warp lightning cannon. You may also be better replacing the ratling teams with plague mortars. that should also get you in points.

Both units keep with your theme and are great at hurting high save troops that skaven otherwise struggle against. Your monks will chew through most low save troops without help so anything you can do to hurt knights etc will really help

Ok I've made a 1000 point army it hasn't got plague monks but a plague furnace since I like these strange machines like the doomwheel,screaming bell and the plague furnace.

Plague Priest(Lvl2, Flail, Plague Furnace, Warp Scroll)-324
Warlock Engineer(Lvl2, Warp-Energy Condenser, Doomrocket)-150

29 Clanrats(Spears, Shields, Musician, Standard, Poisoned Wind Mortar, Priest here)-222
29 Clanrats(Shields, Musician, Standard, Poisoned Wind Mortar, Warlock here)-207.5
20 Slaves-40
20 Slaves-40

That's 983.5, I don't know what to do with 16.5 points, so those are leftovers.

WHen going to 1500 pts I'll add Plague monks, PCB's and a Doomwheel

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH I made a mistake the warlord can't go in the plague monk unit since he isn't from clan pestilence. Well I'll switch him with Priest 2, he goes in clanrat unit, priest 2 in PM unit

If I drop priest 3, I can take a unit of 17 plague monks for priest 2, but this would cost me a lvl2 mage, would this ruin my magic phase or would it help me make a stronge force, cuz it'll leave with a unit more.
