Skaven for Horned Rat VI

So list deadline has passed and hopefully everyone has got their lists in on time. I've decided to take Skaven to Horned Rat VI - primarily motivated by securing the return of the Skaven Best Army icon to its rightful home. With the Nicon 2012 result falling off the icon had slipped from Seerlord Morskitta's twisted paw and fallen into the grasp of the undeserving. Morskitta's suspects someone on the Council has been plotting against him. How rude!

The list I've submitted is based on the Runefang list but with a few refinements to reflect the rise of the Warriors of Chaos and the emergence of High Elves.

Seer - Bell, Skalm, Power Scroll, Dragonbane Gem

Chieftain - BSB, Storm Banner
Engineer - Lvl 1, Condensor, Doomrocket
Engineer - Lvl 1, Scroll, Ruby Ring

38 Clanrats - Full Command, Shields - Ratling Gun
25 Clanrats - Full Command, Shields
3x 40 Slaves - Muso

2x 9 Gutter Runners - Slings, Poison

Hell Pit Abomination
Plagueclaw Ratapult
Warp Lightning Cannon

So some subtle changes which I hope will address what I see as the likely meta at this event.

Full set of lists will be released by the umpire in the next few days.

Oh in in Round One I'm playing Sam Campbell's Nurgle Daemons whose list can be found here


  1. Undeserving indeed! I have no idea how the hell I ended up with the icon :)

    Still you know you're only getting it back as I can't attend this tournament to defend it right?

  2. If you don't mind me asking what roll does the naked engineer play? And do New Zealand tournaments allow stand and shoot with the brass orb?

    1. Redirector.

      I don't use the orb but I'd say yes. The only reason I'd be a little unsure is that the FAQ specifically says that the Doomrocket can stand and shoot but no mention of orc
