AoS 2 - Clan Pestilens Discussion

Since allies don't count when calculating battlelines then I should be able to ally other skaventide units in a pestilens army. This whole rule of "all units must be pestilens" don't apply to the allied units and scroll builder shows this as well.

The question then is whether or not they get to benefit from the skaventide allegiance. Say I ally some ratling guns and a warlock engineer, will they get the skryre warp sparks? They have the correct keyword so really it should not be a problem, right?

Sadly no. Skaven cant ally in other skaven units. The only keyword they can ally with is nurgle. 

If you add the ratling gun and warlock you will need clanrats for battleline.

Has anyone tried to run a clans pestilens list in meeting engagements? 

Did you give it a go at all?

 

I haven't yet, but I've been planning a list for a campaign I'm running next month:

They're Clan Septik rather than pure pestilence, hence all the clanrats.

Main Body:
Plague Priest on furnace
Clawlord
20 clanrats
10 plague monks
5 Plague Censer Bearers

Spearhead
Plague priest
10 stormvermin
10 Plague monks

Rearguard
20 clanrats

 

I was surprised how much you can cram into 1000pts, let me know your thoughts.

Good to see some activity. I just picked up skaven pestilens and have been ploughing through these pages here to get me some insights in the army besides the book and warscrolls.

@AhrimanHow do you play this army? As a masterclan?

Its a purely "Skaventide" list, so isn't bound by any of the Clans due to needing to have the Clanrats and Stormvermin (lore wise).

But means I have some really cheap screening units and objective grabbers with the Clanrats, while my Plague Monks get their hands dirty chopping things up.
