    Clan Pestilens: A list for the Masters

    Very unusual list Aiden, fair play. Looking forward to seeing how you get on. Trying to add gutter runners to my own list now too. Best of luck!!

    Thanks for the advice! I'm investing in 40 more clanrats anyway, might throw them in at the expense of a Furnace. Was also thinking of giving my Verminlord or a Plague Priest the Liber Bubonicus instead of trying to equip my Verminlord for combat. I have found my best games so far have been keeping him behind and using him as a buff. A Verminlord sprinting out and fighting something is the hallmark of a game that has taken a turn for the worst. Killed all his dragons apart from one, which had an artefact that meant I couldn't attack him until he attacked me. That was all sorts of grief that I wasn't ready for. Also, there was a special rule for the entire game where rend didn't count, so his stuff dropped far slower than normal. I also didn't realise you held objectives even if they are abandoned. So I didn't know that he was clocking up points for the objectives he vacated. I really have to get rid of the residual 40k in my head, some of my calculations and moves are still heavily affected by it! Will definitely start retreating more, I don't think I did it once in any of my games.

    Notorious Hammer Tournament

    Hi Aiden, wanted to let you know how I did. Overall, I got one win and two losses. First game against Seraphon, lost by two points. I deployed terribly (more on that later), and almost clawed it back at the end, but it wasn't to be. He was a very good player and had these things that could deep strike within 3" that wrecked my backline. I hadn't played against Seraphon before, so possibly should have done more homework. My opponent went on to win the tournament. Beat Ironjaws in the second round, and it was a hammering. He charged everything into my clan rats first turn and killed them all. Then my Plague Monks proceeded to charge into his units and practically wipe his entire army. He conceded. Third game was against Order Draconis. Not a bad matchup, but the mission wasn't ideal. 3 objectives each in our territories and we had to hold them for as long as possible. He penned me in first turn (everything could just move over 20"!) and I had no opportunity to get up the board to threaten his objectives (I found this to be a general issue with my list). I killed far more points of his stuff, but struggled to play the mission. I'm not too downbeat, as they were only my 4th, 5th and 6th games of Age of Sigmar. Learned a lot and hoping to win at least 2/3 in the next one in January. One of my most enduring enemies of the day was a giant pyramid terrain piece on the table where both my losses took place. My seasoned opponents knew what a pain this would be for me and plonked me in the territory with it, often walling off up to a quarter of my hordes. I completely made a mess of this first game, deploying my clanrats in a way that they couldn't get out of the thing. My opponents, with all of their flying units, took full advantage and it ended up being a deciding factor both games. Really enjoyed myself though and can't wait for the next one! Attached my list and a picture (with that effing pyramid making a cameo ?) WarscrollBuilderList (1).pdf

    Oh cool. Why is that? Bear in mind curse of rust is a realm of Chamon spell and the tournament is set in Chamon, so I think I'm okay?

    Yeah, looks good. Would probably drop the congregation for more rats and give the Verminlord a realm artefact, but that would do decent enough imo

    I have all the faith in you to crush the normies. Will be keeping an eye out on the blog during the run-up to it. I'm taking part in my first AoS tournament myself next weekend. Your blog has been my bible these past few weeks, so hoping to do well

    Played a 1500pt battle tonight against overlords, a good win for the rats. Rallied after losing 60 lads in the first turn to shooting, plague monks were utterly ferocious once close combat started. I'm of the opinion that battallions for Pestilens are not worth it, apart from the Plaguesmog, and even then I'm not sure. Better to have more bodies

    What about 10, 10, 40? Deploy your small units right on the edge of your dz, making sure nothing can get past, and having the 40 man blob about 6" behind to smash anything that gets caught in your net

    Big fan of your blog Aiden all the way from Ireland. When is your next big event?

    Plus, blades are far easier to paint, a serious consideration if you're fielding 100+ of them which most lists will be doing. No way am I painting a hundred sticks with little thingies on them

    This is my dream. I'm a bit far off though, only 120 painted
