So i have recently been overcome with a desire to use Skrag. The reason why i have been reading up on him and theory hammering is that Swedish comp heavily penalizes Skrag and i want to know why. I personally think that his strength is not the Gorgers but his Ld 9 (10 with Banner of Discipline) and for me this means we can run blocks of Gnoblars to tie people up and break steadfast (Something different from the normal tournament list)

So anyway i have got to 2084 out of 2400 pts and would like your input

LORD - Skrag the Slaughterer

HERO - Firebelly: 145 Points
Dispel Scroll

HERO - Bruiser: 165 Points
BSB, Crown of Command

CORE - 7 Ironguts: 346 Points
Full command, Banner of Discipline

CORE - 40 Gnoblars: 110 Points
Musician
CORE - 40 Gnoblars: 110 Points

SPECIAL - Sabretusk

I really like the way this list is shaping up at the moment but need some more experienced minds before i fork out for another 100 gnoblars. This list has 6 drops before i have to drop anything important. Ideas for the final things to add are either Leadbelchers, Mournfangs, both?

Anyway let me know what you think

it's the number of units you have. 2400 is 13 Gorgers and a Tusk. Skrag needs one kill and they all come on.

However, compare a Lore of Death L4 for the same penalty. Clearly, Skrag is nowhere alike. Skrag isn't worth the -50, however. Like in 40k, Land Raider rush, Triple Wraithknight or whatever gimmick list that relies on being specifically catered for, Skrag can win big, or go home with nothing.

In the list; you only really have 4 drops - 3 Sabretusks and a Gnoblar. A capable player can know where you're then going to put the other 2 Gnoblar units, Skrag and the Ironguts for the bubble. 12" isn't much.

Gnoblars also lose out as a result of the Ironguts faster movement - or the ironguts are going to stay where they are all game, and be ignored. They're not a deathstar, so aren't being forced to be killed, and have no magic to counter a Death or Shadows+Life combos.

I can't honestly see the problem behind a Skrag list apart from whoever was writing the comp scores had a bad day, or simply read too many e-tacticas without actually playing it. I've tried a Skrag list, and maybe the meta wasn't ready for it then, and the meta is now, but honestly, in this list, I can't see exactly what the issue was.
