Someone's At the Door!!

This weekend I am using my Skaven at Natcon. As previously mentioned it is 2000 points which is different from the norm for the local tournament scene.

Given I’ve been playing the Skaven pretty much for the past2.5 years I thought I’d take variant lists in 2012. My normal list has the Plague Furnace at the centre of it backed by a unit of Plague Monks. At Runefang I tried the two Seer list and didn’t particularly enjoy it. This list won’t work at 2000 points – 20 points isn’t enough to preserve two seers – so I thought I tried another variant to my norm at NatCon.

So here is what I am using:

Seer – Screaming Bell, Skalm, Earthing Rod

BSB – Standard of Discipline
Engineer – Level One, Dispel Scroll
Engineer – Level One, Warp Energy Condenser, Doomrocket

40 Clanrats – Full Command with Poisoned Wind Mortar
3x 39 Slaves – Muso
2x 5 Giant Rats and Packmaster

2x 9 Gutter Runners – Poison, Slings

Warplightning Cannon
Hellpit Abomination – Warpstone Spikes

List is a bit more zappy than the regular list I’ve been using, sacrificing a bit of hand-to-hand. It is missing some of the staples – naked Engineers, Brass Orb, Storm Banner – you usually see but hopefully giving me enough “rattiness” to enjoy eight games.

Expect to see the Bell ringing at max. power throughout the weekend.


  1. Running something very similar to this list - how do you find having just the 1 hammer unit?

  2. It just means you play a more circumspect game. The HPA acts much closer to your lines as a sweeper.
