Skitterleap 2012 Lists

You can see the Skitterleap 2012 lists here

Interesting mix - with two outstanding - there appears to be an influx of the forces of Dark into our realm.

The breakdown is:

3 - Daemons of Chaos, Lizardmen
2 - Warriors of Chaos, High Elves, Dark Elves, Vampire Counts
1 - Empire, Wood Elves, Orcs & Goblins, Ogres, Beastmen, Skaven, Chaos Dwarfs, Dwarfs

So 14 out of 16 of the Warhammer races in the 22 armies. The only armies missing are Tomb Kings and Bretonnians. Speaks volumes for the balance to see such diversity.

The only thing I would question; the wisdom of the Darker Powers to leave the Plaguebearers to look after the Warp while the rest of the warpspawn venture forth. I'm guessing there will be more than a little mess to clean up afterwards - I can't see Papa Nurgle's children being the best housekeepers.

It's also hard to believe that there are any skinks left in Lustria!


  1. Looks like everyone has brought out all their toys, Should be fun!

    I pick Mal to win it all (Now watch him choke under the Pressure!)

    I personally expect to have my uber-broken Book disappear from the table by turn 2 in at least 2 games, thereby costing me any opportunity to play with the big boys...

  2. Certainly think we'll see battles between Lizards and Daemons for places on the top tables over the weekend.

    I'll be giving my normal Sportsbet predictions next week

  3. Re the Book of Hoeth - I do think people overlook the fact that the cost means the holder of the book is otherwise naked.

    Given that a second caster is usually useless when prime holds Book, then any assassination leaves the HE player without any magic.

    I certainly think it is one item GW have pointed fairly.
