Love it - in this case made him roll a suck on failing 2 charge rolls.

Salt in the Wounds was when he threw axes and the wounds I pulled off were the same inches he needed to make his 2d charge ūüėÄūüźÄ

Ok, so I had to submit the list by 23:59 today, and as such have handed it in as-is. I am free to choose Command Traits, Spells and Artifacts later, so my thoughts are turning to these things.

I guess MMMWP! for both the Arch-Warlock and the Warlock Bombardier. 

The Warpseer will be my general, I think. Lore of Ruin is only for Grey Seers, I believe, so he doesn't get to choose a spell? For Command Trait, Master of Magic sounds like a good one, giving him +2 to cast when he's standing by a Gnawhole. 

For the Artifact... not sure. Suspicious Stone is one I've seen thrown about, giving the Warpseer 4+/5+/5+, rerolling the 4+. Not bad. Or should I put a Vigordust Injector on the Arch-Warlock? Should he be the general? What's the best Command Trait for the Clawlord (Verminous Valour and Powerful might keep him alive for longer; Malevolent might make him a nastier fighter; Savage Overlord helps stop Clanrats cheesing it** from Battleshock)? Will the Bombardier achieve anything?*

So many questions. 

 

 

*No.
**Stop it.

@Kirjava13 I would go with verminous valour for the clawlord. 

I would be tempted to make the AW general and give him deranged inventor incase you fail MMWP, but that's just me;p 

Suspiscious stone is nice:) super tank! And the artefact is easy to remember. I gave him spellmirror once, forgot I had itūüėā

6 stormfiends that are sparked, vigordusted and MMWP'ed, will kick someone off the board with dices flying. 

Bombardier will achieve glory and buff the zapper! When the zapper blows up, overload the rocket and blast 2 D6 dmg in someones face! Managed to do it against a terrorgheist, it was glorious!!

yes all the choices, hard as nails.

@Kirjava13 I think you're going to be relying quite heavily on those 6 Stormfiends surviving and getting buffed, so yeah I would rather give them all the buffs they can get to make sure they kill whatever they're shooting at each turn; MMMWP + Spark + Vigordust. I agree with @Darkhan that having a backup to MMMWP not going off isn't necessary but you'll likely be glad you did. That said, if you're playing Hero\Behemoth\Wizard controlled objectives, a Warpseer with Stone is pretty much ensuring you'll hold that objective the entire game, at least from my experience.

But yes, I think in your particular setup a AW + Bombardier is just fine as you have a backup of MMMWP in case the AW goes down and he serves a purpose by staying with the WLC. With what you've submitted, I would say you're good; Solid body count, good heroes (of course I don't care for the Clawlord really but, not much room for a Grey Seer) and some good shooting hammers.

Be sure to keep us updated on how it goes.

My reasons for taking the Clawlord are as follows:

- I have the Skryre General model, and I think it's cool af.
- He buffs the Clanrats.
- I have 100 points left over otherwise. 

I could swap him for another Warlock, to get even more spells going on (that would net me six total). If I take out the Clawlord and the Gravetide I have 120 points to play with- it's immaterial at this point as I have submitted the list, but I could play around with Endless Spells... I wonder how much a Balewind Vortex would help this army?

Not as much as it used to. If you use one it would most assuredly need to be on the AW (just like before the update) but even then I wouldn't bring one unless you just had the points leftover.

All in all they're good points and I see why you would bring it.. so no worries there. Good luck man.

If you have 120pts knocking around you could add 10 stormvermin?

Hope noone minds this post but I know we all like battle reports. I played 1,500pts of Skaven v Stormcast the other day and instead of writing it up my buddy filmed it for his new youtube channel. He is just learning how to do this properly so the camera work is a learning curve but we had a blast playing and the Horned Rat smiled on the result (despite a couple of rule errors on either side!) Check it out if you have some time.

Might be interesting but unfortunately I only have five Stormvermin, having cannibalised almost all of my bits to make Jezzails and Acolytes!

I think the force multiplying capabilities with the Clawlords CA on 40 Clanrats (and another hero for certain objectives) outweighs the output of 10 Stormvermin.

@States 2, personally. You have the Fiends (assuming you built them Launchers\Ratlings) for killing anything, the WLC for hero sniping and the minimum 80 bodies for objectives\screening. Not that the first list is bad, but I think if you're running Ratlings you may as well throw in 3 (or 2 if you're also running Fiends like this).

That 3 hero setup is my go-to in every list I use and won't disappoint. In one of my Stormfiend setups I have 9 and run a Grey Seer on foot instead.. so long as I have something with Skitterleap. I know we all talk about using Skitterleap almost exclusively in conjunction with the WLV, but remember to use it throughout as it's a great way to cap an empty objective (or lightly guarded for the Waprseer to take on a good charge). Since it only teleports hero's and isn't used as much as other armies teleports, people sometimes forget about it and leave objectives open from time to time.

Is it worth taking a unit of 6 Jezzails? Heard 9 is the lucky number, however i sadly don't have enough points for that in my list.

Thoughts?

@Congratz I think 6 is the minimum to take and still take out small heroes\severely wound larger ones. I think they work nicely in conjunction with 6 Stormfiends based on what I've seen. I just wouldn't buff them with anything if you want them to stick around (except Deranged Inventor if they still need to move).

If you want to really ensure bigger things die, 9 is the way to go.

Anyone got any ideas on how to increase the Jezzails from 6 to 9? 

Maybe either drop the Arch-Warlock and make him a Bombadier or drop a Greyseer? or maybe 20 clanrats?

I'd drop the extra Grey Seer; you already have six casts/dispels so having two more doesn't really help you here unless you blow out on the cheaper endless spells. Otherwise The list looks great.

EDIT: There are never enough Clanrats. Never consider dropping any amount without thinking long and hard about putting yourself at a disadvantage.

Make the AW into a bombardier:) Imo, since you don't have any stormfiends, or a 3+ team of ratling gunners, I think you should be safe to downgrade him.

He will probably just hug the jezzails just sparking them/MMWP when needed.

I would not swap out a grey seer if you are planing on the skitterleap WLV combo, and the other one to follow the monks around casting deathfrenzy.

Will do that then! Yeah it seems like a waste to downgrade the Greyseers

Who do you think should be the general? And I assume the best one to skitterleap and WLV would be the archwarlock with +1 (gnawholes) and reroll?

Would you switch anything I have out? I have everything except stormvermin, jezzails. and plague monks

If I have 2 Skryre units I'll generally go with the AW so I can get Deranged Inventor and you can still do this if you want a "backup" to MMMWP not going off. Otherwise, my Warpseer is General with Master of Magic because I like it when Warpgale goes off.  Aside from Thanquol, the AW maths out to be the best option I believe since the Grey Seers can't use modifiers when they triple roll. Plus, if you get him stuck somewhere he's reasonably tanky enough to handle small units being thrown at him.

As for switching anything out; not sure really. Shackles are very short range and since a single wizard can only cast 1 endless spell per phase, you likely won't be putting WLV and Shackles within range of each other T1. Same could be said for Vermintide; great spell, but it's strength is in it's wide base blocking movement and the threat of it doing more damage if you finish too close to it. I would experiment and see if it works for you, otherwise maybe consider dropping both of those and using those 80 points to bulk up a Clanrat unit to 40 (80 is my minimum, but I like to bring 100 for more competitive lists if I'm able).

Ok so since I only have stormfiends I guess warpseer will be the general :)

Good advice. Don't have more clanrats (got tired after doing those 100 well painted). Maybe 80 could be for a ratling or warpflamer instead? Keep the spells or go for a team?
