Age of Sigmar Project 2019: Clan Verminus/Mors

Greetings all,

Having finished my large Gutbusters army (including 30 gnoblars in december) I am ready to move onto another project.
Next month i'll probs finish up a stray Tyrant turned maneater and 'may' do another Butcher conversion to be able to field 2 Butchers with Cauldron.
That asside...

My new project is going to be themed around Clan Mors.
Led by the Queek Headtaker model. (regretfully only fieldable as a 'wimpy' regular Warlord :( )

I have begun collecting Skaven forces.
Heretically i'll be fielding them square based as this is the fantasy army i'll also keep to use in other fantasy battle systems. (kings of war, ninth age, HoTT?)

I already have:

3 Skaven Warlords including Queek's model.
3x 40 Skaven Clanrats.

1x 60 Stormvermin (of which 20 are in their box/on the sprue still)

On the side I got in a lot 4 Rat Ogres, one of those Ratmaster guys with a cattleprong for rat ogres (i presume?) and 1 of those Skaven Engineer heroes.

EDIT: I forgot i ordered Skritch Spiteclaw and his gang.

I'm hoping to go super heavy on the footsloggers phalanx.
And i'm fielding the Stormvermin in glorious red. (Queek's Red Guard!)

However I'm hesitant to buy yet another box of Stormvermin. (not the cheapest of boxsets)

Would it be effective to field 2x 30 Stormvermin or do people swear by 40's?

 

At the moment I was thinking of fielding:

2x Skaven Warlord

3x 40 Skaven Clanrats

2x 30 Stormvermin

= 1640 Pts

And add to that 

2x Warplightning Cannons

= 2000 Pts.

But i'm open to other ideas.
I'd like to go heavy on Clanrats and Stormvermin though.
Minimum 40 Stormvermin and a very large wave of Skaven Clanrats.

Blessing of filth to you as well my friend, I see-see you have taken the right choice.

Clanrats are a perfect meathsields unit’s, and are a must take in any mixed skaven force.

i usually run 120of them, which are perfect objective holders and can even tear down a stone horn or mawcrusher if needed.

Stormvermins are also a great choice buffed by gnash gnaw... and the Verminlord warbrimger commandabillity, nothing really has a change against them.

The sad thing about Stormvermins just is that they die very very fast if shot down.

also they are very expensive (pointwise), which is just sad for a horde army, who should be able to field thousands of them.

Your list looks fine.

just out of a competitive view, 2warlords won’t be doing to much to your armie, since the commandablity can not be stacked anymore, and using one multiple times just requires 1warlord and enough commanpoints.

if your looking to go on tournaments, I would definitely exchange one of your Warlords with for a engineer or a plague priest with censer.

 If it’s a more well fun approach, definitely use both of them.

also if you and your friend are ok using the real Headtaker warscroll for Queek, I’d use it. It definitely gives some flavor in narrative game,

Many thanks for the feedback.
I do hope we'll get a few 'ranks' of Warlord.

The reason i'm fielding 2 Is more because... I got 3. And because it seems somewhat logical to have a nr2 in a more 'military' force.

 

I actually forgot I also ordered a set of Skirtch Spiteclaw to vary it up. I may field him as nr2 then.

I suppose I could do:

 

Leadership:

1x Warlord (General) - 100pts (Queek Headtaker)

1x Skritch Spiteclaw - 120pts (Queek's right handman + bodyguard)

1x Warlock Engineer - 100pts (chief engineer in charge of artillery)

Units:

3x 40 Clanrats - 600 pts (the first wave storm and objective holders)

1x 40 Stormvermin - 500pts (Queek's Iron Fist, the Red Guard to come in the last wave)

 

Artillery

3x Warp Lightning Cannon  3x 180 pts

 

Total = 2000pts

I'd need to get 3x WLC in time. Everything else I already got or got ordered.

 

OR

 

Leadership:

1x Warlord (General) - 100pts (Queek Headtaker)

1x Skritch Spiteclaw - 120pts (Queek's right handman + bodyguard)

1x Verminlord Warbringer - 280 pts

Units:

3x 40 Clanrats - 600 pts (the first wave storm and objective holders)

2x 30 Stormvermin - 840pts (Queek's Iron Fist, the Red Guard to come in the last wave)

Total = 1940 pts

I'd need to only get 1x Verminlord.

 

I'm not a tourny player. I play more casually but I do try to mix theme with an acceptable level of performance. I do not want to walk up with armies that have 0 chance.
