    So this is my final list for 1000pts, with a little variation depending on the army I'm playing against. How's it look? Still unsure on the best trait to give. Probably Lord of War so I can buff the Acolytes too, maybe? Not too sure on spears over blades for Clanrats either, but it's not like it makes too much of a big deal. Also, trade the engineer for a warlord maybe? Also I can replace the Acolytes and the Warpfire team for a Lightning Cannon if I'm facing something more elite, like BCR.

    Core rules 2018. It's got all 4 of the GA abilities and whatnot, updated slightly, in it.

    So how do you guys burn through painting 120 Clanrats? Jesus I'm staring at only 40 right now and I'm scared out of my gourd. Am I going to need movement trays?

    Until I know otherwise I'm going to do what I heard of before 2.0, which is that you can take an Allegiance, which grants battleline, but you can always take Grand Alliance traits/abilities/artifacts instead of your own. If this ceases to be the case, I'm dropping Skryre like a bad habit lol

    So Stormfiends are the same price as a Warp Lightning Cannon+Doomwheel. Which do you think is the better option of the two? Second question, is it really worth it to run Skryre Allegiance beyond the Stormfiend battleline?

    It's a pain to buy a unit of Stormvermin just to use a few units from them...but they definitely look the best. I'm currently stuck between wanting the new GA Chaos artifacts and traits, and refusing to run 80 Clanrats for battleline...

    So tell me what you think of this idea and see if you can give me any other ideas for converting up my warband. I'm fiddling with the idea of converting my weapon team/Acolytes out of either. It'd probably make sense if they didn't all look the same. A. plastic Stormvermin B. Skaven Bloodbowl team C. Plague monks The admech sicarian backpack looks decent for the Acolytes, skavenized a bit. Acolytes will get resculpted/refitted hands and probably an air soft pellet or something for the globe depending on what I use. I plan on probably using the burna boy flamethrower for my Warpfire teams since it both looks rickety and it might be big enough. They'll be one dude on a single 32mm, rather than the cavalry base two-person team. I like the idea from Vermintide of just one dude being the wielder.

    So I was considering starting a Skryre army, and was all hyped to buy all the giblets the other day. I was doing a lot of research pre-2.0, mind. Today, I got my hand on the core rules and I kind of bit my tongue. Grand Alliance: Chaos has much better traits and artifacts than Skryre. And since they nerfed the double damage from warpstone sparks, I hardly see a reason to run pure Skryre any more. So instead I went Skryre flavored Skaven. Still Skryre in essence. I'm still starting out, so I want to go for like 1000 points. I also loathe painting hordes after my skeleton misadventures. At least clanrats are easy to build This is the list I came up with. Allegiance: ChaosMortal Realm: HyshSkaven Warlord (100)- Shield & Warpforged Blade- Artefact: Crown of ConquestGrey Seer (100)- General- Trait: Cunning Deceiver20 x Clanrats (120)- Rusty Spear20 x Clanrats (120)- Rusty Spear3 x Stormfiends (290)1 x Warpfire Thrower Weapon Team (70)1 x Warpfire Thrower Weapon Team (70)5 x Skryre Acolytes (60)5 x Skryre Acolytes (60)Total: 990 / 1000Extra Command Points: 0Allies: 0 / 200Wounds: 84 How does it look? Two bricks of battleshock immune clanrats backed up by a grey seer, mortal wound spitting flamethrowers, and acolytes to ruin anything that charges the rat blocks. Stormfiends for heavy hitting backup, probably with Warpfire Projectors, I reckon. Essentially, a wall of rats, with a bunch of meat behind it. I know its more efficient for me to, say, do two bricks of 40. But I really don't want to paint 80 rattos.

    I feel ya on the artifacts. You either get more sparks with the resonator, or you take the vigordust. Other thing, though, is that most of the Realm artifacts are generally buffs for your general. Some of them are decent like that one that halves damage from spells, or gives you more CP on a 5+.

    They're in the Grand Alliance: Chaos book. Odd they never updated them or put them anywhere else, I know.

    So I've talked with another dude who placed 10th at a tournament with Skryre. He sort of disapproves of me trying to run Skryre at 1000pts lol. I see where he's coming from though. I hate the idea of painting another 40 dudes but this does look like its the best option. How does this look? Warlock and Engineer for spells, Acolytes to backup the Clanrats. Warpflame and Stormfriends to help out with the mortal wound output behind the horde. I can't tell if its scary, or not. Arch Warlock (140) Warlock Engineer (100) 5x Skryre Acolytes (60) 5x Skryre Acolytes (60) 3x Stormfriends (290) - 3x Warpfire Projectors 2x Warpflame Teams (140) 40x Clanrats (200) - Rusty Spears 990/1000

    I'm just putting the pieces of the toolkit together, as it were. I'm a little limited in 1000pts, but even still I don't like the idea of painting a squad of 40+ again. I already did that with LoN earlier this year lol. I just need to get some of this built up and ready and the puzzle will make a little more sense. I can't keep posting army list ideas here and expect the answer to hit me in the face. The biggest caveat of 1000pts is to take two Stormfiends, or to take one and Acolytes. I'm not sure which will work better, or would be smarter than the other. It's likely Skryre will just die to objective game anyway lol

    Or swap the Clanrats out for a Doom wheel, since 20 rats isn't going to do much anyway. Hmm!

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    I like the idea of Acolytes a lot. I've looked over the metal models entirely as I'm converting my weapons teams either way, too. But I've heard very mixed opinions about them, and how they ought to be played. And then, if one group of Stormfriends is really enough, you know? It kinda looks like a lightning cannon is sort of essential to the game plan, too. Else all you have for ranged mortals is your engineer. So lemme see if I can wiggle something good out of here. Engineer 100 Packmaster 60 Stormfiends 290 2x Poison Mortars 120 Lightning Cannon 180 10x Acolytes 120 20x Clanrats 120 990/1000 Think that's enough oomph in the list?

    This is exactly what I was thinking. Bubble wrap, as it were. As much as I hate swarmy critter armies lol. Thing is, I only play 1250 or 1000pt games and I'm sorta struggling to fit everything I want in a list. I sure as heck can't seem to fit both two units of Stormfriends and a Lightning Cannon as well. Any ideas? I pretty much have this on lock, for now: Warlock Engineer Stormfiends 2x Poison Mortar Teams Thata 510. What's the best thing to include from here?
