Ok well I want to start skaven for 750 point battles, and someone advised me to buy the island of blood, my question is: What does it contain, would it save me some money, I mean modelwise only, because I already have the rules, dice, templates and stuff, it's only about the models for me, I want to know what's in there for Skaven and HE(my friend plays HE, pehaps he wants to buy somehting), my list is already decided, it contains: 1 chieftain BSB, 1 Warlock Engineer, 48 clanrats, 2 weapon teams, 2 warp-lighting cannnons, so with this models in mind would it be wise to buy the island of blood???

40 Clanrats
20 Slaves
2 Weapon Teams
2 Rat Ogres

If you play either Skaven or High Elves (or have pondered playing Skaven or High Elves) you probably should pick up the box. The thing about Skaven is that you really can't have enough Clanrats-- if you ever decide to go beyond the initial 750 points you and your friend are playing (and I encourage you to do so-- Fantasy is best at 2000 points, I think), you'll need 'em. At $90, the box really is a steal... it's a thousand points of both Skaven and High Elves. If you've got a friend who's playing High Elves, you can split the cost of the box, too, and then you're getting a thousand points of Skaven for $45 US. When you consider 20 Clanrats is $35.00 these days, and you get a total of 60 models that you'd use the Clanrat box for in the Isle of Blood box for that $45, you're coming out -way- ahead.

or if a friend plays high elfs, and you buy a box each, you just swap the HE's in your box for his skaven

Getting the boxed starter set is always a great deal if you want to play one of the two armies, especially as said you can trade/sell the models you don't want.

I found the contents, plus pics of the mini's on warseer(they're other mini's then the normal ones you can buy), and they look freaking awesome.
It's great, it contains:
1 Warlock Engineer(Need this one)
1 Warlord with banner(will work as chieftain BSB)
40 Clanrats(Need these too)
2 Rat Ogres(Unit fillers for Clanrats, brings me to the total of 48)
2 Packmasters, for kitbashing and stuff
2 Weapon Teams.

Now I only have to buy 2 Warplightning Cannons and I'm done, and my friend plays HE, and he wants to buy the HE stuff.:victory:

I want to point out, I'm not gonna expand my Skaven to 2000 points, since I use my Lizardmen for 2000 point battles, I already play Warhammer

Yes, I think I'll buy the set and convert the elves to dark elves.
The mini rulebook is also a BIG bonus.
I'd recommend getting it for a 750 point skaven army, you'd probably be saving a bunch.
