Hey.

Im going to be coming into enough money soon to finally buy a Warhammer army. And my clear choice is the Skaven, they are my favourites, but I dont know much about their units. Can anyone advise me on what would be best to build a good Skaven army?.

... especially if you buy island of blood and swap the HE for the skaven from a friend's copy. You end up with a huge army very quickly for very little money

Hmm that sounds like a good idea. Skaven batallion and Island of Blood, and try to get two Skaven sides. That would be the basis of a great force.

Also is there actually a model for the Hell Pit Abomination?, because ive gotta have one of those eventually.

No, there is no model... which means you can do whatever you want for it. If you dont really think thats allowed I recommend a very quick cure- google image search for 'hellpit abomination'... the conversions it pulls up are all stunning and have one thing in common: absolutely no common features whatsoever... basically imagine something between a satanic demon and a nurgle spawn and you probably have a winner :p Just make sure its on a 50*50mm monster base and you're sorted (although you could get away with a giant base.. think they are 50*80mm).

And don't forget the Screaming Bell! :) Though if you're into a more Nurgle-style army then a Plague Furnace is fine too. And Fart Monks of all sorts. Otherwise: what everyone else said. :p

I thought the abomination was meant to be on a 50 x 100 base like a chariot?

One unit I'll praise is the often ignored plagueclaw catapult its a large blast and allows no save, even tough troops will fall to it.

Island of blood or 2 would be a fantastic choice and would get a lot of core choice choices sorted, 1 point of advice skaven = big units, don't be afraid to put 40+ clanrats or monks or stormvermin in a single unit.

The Abomination is something I will never run... Then again it would be fun to get a paper towel tube fill it full of spray foam (remove tube from foam and give another quick spurt) on the right sized base then just stick a bunch of arms, heads, and tails sticking out of it and paint in up is your abomination.... hmmmm the wheels in my head are spinning someone gave the hamster on the wheel warp stone laced cheese....
