Same reason as no Tyranid or Necrons in AoS.

As for Deathmaster, that’s just a minor errata without having to make a points change.  I’m all about more usefulness - like a spell, or mortals (the Deathmaster should be * all about * mortals), but they’d raise the points to like 140 or something ridiculous.

No Necrons?;p Got OBR.

Take this with many grains of salt.., Many real life years ago it was said by some that WHFB might have happened after 40k.  The exploded warp gates warp above both the North and South poles may have been been placed by the Old Ones - the same ones that terraformed the planet and created their servants the Slann.  The C’tan were the Old Ones that made the Lizardmen.

Games workshop has often hinted back in the days of the old that the old world where the skaven ones ruled the under empire, was a part of the giant multiverse of and somewhat part of the entirety of the 40k system.

 

I seem to recall that they hinted that Sigmar was one of the missing space marine primarchs, whose pod landed on a medieval planet. IIRC that was in the rogue trader book? and by the time 2nd edition came out they had scrapped the idea.

Well If it makes you somewhat happy, there have been rumors that the 40k orks actually came from the old world and were taken through the old ones Into the 40k universe.

although their ship crashed into some planet, they were soon after discovered by our fellow humans, from who they learned how to shoot bullets out of a magic stick they found on the ground.

and with magical I basically mean a natural stick And an Orks that believes it can shoot bullets

Right and here’s a qoute from the thanqoul saga:

“The warlock engineers soon discovered the Device of the Great Beyond, a communication apparatus that spoke to beings from beyond the stars.  As they swirled its many dials, a querulous voice spoke through the stone speakers. That voice, fair and clear caused the Skaven to bolt away.  The device was something like the far-squeaker, but the melodious tones that issued forth were, if anything, kin to the despised speech of the elf-things. As they did not understand the alien language, nor how the arcane contraption worked the warlock engineers pulled the device apart and shot it with warplock pistols until it stopped making any sounds.”

The problem with Skaven in 40k setting (as much as I love Skaven) is that Genestealer cults already fill the secretive, under empire, lurking menace role. Not really worth having a second army who do the same thing.

I suppose rat men could be used as an auxiliary xenos unit for Tau?

Or as an alternative daemon army?

Well the great thing about skaven in 40k is, is basically the option of codexes you can take to convert your skaven army into.

space marine may not be the perfect sollution, but anything from admech, down genestealers and Militarium works pretty great, as a converted skaven faction

Skaven were in 40k for a bit. They were named Hrud  and looked like humanoid rats but GW realised that simple transition of WFB races is not good enough and changed them to horrid (in a good way) creatures that generate entropic field.

Hey I'm starting a skaven army what do you thing about this for a gnawbomb army? Dropping thanquol, a deciever, an abomination, and a bell up in somebodys face with 40 plaguemonks coming in off a warp grinder seems like fun.

It looks great.

but to not disappoint you in any way,

thanqoul and the screaming bell can’t be skitterleaped forward since they both have more then 12wounds

That's why you gnaw bomb, so to start you place all 3 your gnawholes on your backline then you can skitterleap the deciever forward to a piece of terrain and gnawbomb it and bring thanquol, the bell and abomination through the new gnawhole.

Only 1 thing can go through a Gnawhole at a time:

"At the start of your movement phase, you can use 1 Gnawhole to transport 1 friendly Skaventide unit"

@Salcomine your lost really does look great even if it isn’t possible to get everything up front, You’ll be able to surprise a few friends and foes with this list.

although you may notice how hard it is to get a 9inch charge of in a turn.

plague monks might make it easier in thanks to their +1 to the charge role, but that is still an 8 you’ll need to roll with your dice, and there is quite a chance you might not get it.

now I’m not saying that your strategy is In any way bad,

but you’ll be banging on that double turn to get stuff done, something Ironjawz players seem to be doing these days as well😂.

And hoping to win a single dice roll of that can go either way, is usually not something I usually count on.

now I’m not saying that you should not hope you’ll get the next turn, since studies have shown that a player using either aos skaven or 40k orks will be much better at rolling unpredictable almost impossible to get roles, which is basically what our whole army is made of (see the skryre range😂),

but I wouldn’t Count on it.

see it as a gift of the great horned rat, that will either unwrap itself as a victory or a decisive loose.

no matter what you choose, in the end luck is with the bold ones

🤔 I guess i read that wrong, welp back to the drawing board. Making the charge is gravy, was more of a zone thing with death frenzy but I see that doesnt actually work either. 

Thanks for proofing this, havent played yet luckily

Help me out here guys. Do you think my list will do well? 
He has more magic than me which kind sucks. And his plaguebearers just wont die. 
I think my keys to victory is taking out one or more Great unclean ones.  Also trying to keep the gutter runners alive, so he will have to think about that threat.

Any other pointers?

Interesting list @Skreech Verminking! Do post a battle report :)
How you found the night runners are worth? Definitely and cool unit with that pre combat move.
Do you have any experience with 1 x10 vs 2 x 10 night runners?

2x20 acolytes is also interesting. Less bang for you buck than 1x30, but more resilient and versatile I guess.

Well I have never used any Night runners, in my past lists, but since the meta has changed and for some reason Got units that do the same damage as acolyte, just with three times the range k figured having some not so expensive Nightrunners to protect my threads might not be sich a bad idea.

and with two units of 10 I’ll be able to screen a bit more then I would with only 10.

as for those 2 units of 20 acolytes, well they are much more handy then a single unit of 30, and I do like having 4or more threads to use against my enemies.

You aren't wrong. The handful of time's I've played against Nurgle (2 of which were Thricefold) the GUO's were the real threat and need to be taken care of. Those 30 Plaguebearers will just sit on an objective and aiming everything at them should do well enough to clear them.. aside from that though he doesn't seem to have a ton of other board presence for objectives.

Ok so this is a bit out there but was wondering if anyone has tried it.

A unit of gutter runners which you can place to the side then place anywhere I believe it's something like 6' from the edge or enemy unit but also have a assassin in the unit place and use tactically to kill a wizard, hero or whatever quickly. If they can cause more disruption great if not pull back or sacrifice for if done right a sneaky cheap shot. What do you think?

If possible have any gnaw holes placed so your appointment places a maybe powerful but fragile hero out of harms way only for you to sneak attack then make use of the hole if and when it's tactically good to do so maybe even princes a unit from behind their own line

Question in regards to gnawholes. Can I use multiples of them in a hero phase? I know you can only use each one once. Or is it once for all of them

 

basically I came up with 3 different scenarios 

 

1) they can all only be used once

2) they are used in pairs. So if you took ganwbomb you could move 2 units

3) each one can be used once per hero phase. 
 

just let me know guys
