    The New Skaven Battletome, Terrain, Model & eSpells!

    Nope, only models with 8 wounds or less can go on the Balewind.

    Yep, while the 2D6 MW Shooting is very good, it is also very limited range on a not very durable hero.

    Balewind Vortext does not add +1 to casting in the current edition. It allows the wizard an extra spell. It'll still be very good next to a Gnawhole.

    In matched play (maybe other types as well) a wizard can only attempt to summon one Endless Spell a turn, so that lovely filthy combo would have to be spread over two turns.

    AoS 2 - Clan Verminus / Skaven Discussion

    I played a doubles event over the weekend and ran Clan Verminus for the first time. Warlord (Crown of Conquest, Cunning Deceiver) Arch Warlock 40 Clanrats 40 Stormvermin Chronomatic Cogs My partner was running Ironjaws (Megaboss, 2 units of Brutes, 2 unites of Gore Gruntas, Warchanter, Weirdnob Shaman). Basically our plan was to run up and smash things before we got smashed. This worked exceptionally well against newer players, but against more experienced players it was a lot harder to pull off. 40 Stormvermin can absolutely chew through anything as long as they get to hit first. Target priority was key to success here, and since it was a doubles event we had to make sure that both our armies were in a position where the Stormvermin could strike first and the rest of our units that were in combat would be able to take a hit. Game 1 - Shifting Objectives vs Tzeench and Beasts of Chaos Major Victory We cast the cogs and sped up time then ran forward to try and swamp the objectives. A big grind fest in the middle where the Stormvermin's +1 to hit for outnumbering the enemy unit really showed its worth. It didn't help our opponents that their Herdstone affected the Tzeench units negatively. Arch Warlock taking down a Doombull in combat was a great show. Game 2 - Knife to The Heart vs Kharadron Overlords and Fireslayers Major Victory Sneaky sneaky Clanrats. While my teammate distracted the opponents with big green guys yelling and stomping around, I sent the Clanrats around the side and did a reatreat and charge onto the objective to get a Major Victory turn three. The whole game the Stormvermin just sat on the home objective and did nothing. Game 3 - Starstrike vs Legion of Sacrament and Kharadron Overlords Minor Loss This is where things started falling apart. We didn't really have an answer for Arkhan, who sat on top of a rock out of harms way the whole game. The combination of the bodies that Death brings to the table and the shooting from the KO was too much for us. Once the Warlord died the Stormvermin fell apart. We managed to draw on points but lost on kill points. Game 4 - Focal Points vs Tzeench and Pestilens Major Loss By this point my teammate and I were beaten down and tired and didn't have much hope for a victory. It turned out to be a lot closer than we thought, so maybe if we had tried a little harder things may have been different. Stormvermin tried to kill the chicken, did not succeed. Highlight was one lonely Gore Grunta taking the brunt of the Pestilens force all by himself. We placed third overall which I am very happy about. Most importantly we had a blast playing Age of Sigmar all weekend.

    AoS 2 - Clan Skyre Discussion

    Thanks. The list doesn't stand up well to shooting. There wasn't much shooting at Masters but one of my regular opponent plays a shooty Stormcast list which regularly kicks my ass. I also didn't have that much going on in the combat phase. The strong points were Thanquol and the Deceiver. Those two did basically all the heavy lifting. It took me a few games to really figure out when and where to use them, but when used properly they totally wreck ****** and it is glorious. The Assassin didn't do that much for me and the Gutter Runners were just OK. They have been really good for me in about 1/4 games. I'm going to drop the Warpseer in favor of 40 giant rats and a packmaster and the gutter runners for some plague monks and see how that goes. To keep things on the topic of Skryre, my Arch Warlock John Cheese is basically an auto include for every list I put together. He goes up on a Balewind and does his thing, gets relocated by the Deceiver if need be. I've been wargaming for about a year now, playing either mixed Chaos or Clan Skryre. Overall I prefer this mixed Chaos list. While Skryre can deal a lot of damage, I find them to be one or two tricks that work well most of the time, but can be shut down if people know how. Mixed Chaos has a lot more variety (and bodies), and people generally don't realise what it can do. At the start of every game I tell my opponents that I can Skitterleap Thanquol into 2D6 Mortal Wound range, but they often still underestimate how good that can be. If they know about it and set up to zone out Thanquol, I skitterleap the Arch Warlock instead.

    It was a couple of weeks ago. My mixed Skaven (The Hallouminati) placed 11th, the Pestilens List at 16th (out of 20). Both had 2 Wins, 3 Losses. Tiebreakers were Hidden Agendas then Strength of Schedule.

    Personally I think mixed Chaos is better than Pestilens. It's hard going up against battletome armies, but one of the best players in Australia plays mixed Chaos Skaven and often podiums so it can be done. 1) Not slow, but there are much faster armies out there. Can hit hard with mortal wounds (Wizards, Stormfiends) and some very good combat units (Plague Monks), but not a lot of durability. 2) Good scenarios are ones where objectives are 'most models within six' based, since we have a lot of bodies. Bad match ups are anything that targets bravery. 3) Mixed Chaos can't have allies. Skryre or Pestilens will often benefit from allying in 40 clanrats. 5) Lots of Clanrats, some heros and lots of clanrats.

    I'm running a Skaven mixed Chaos list at the NZ Masters tournament in just over a week, I'll post here about how it goes. I'm not expecting to win many games, we have a lot of very good players here and I'm still relatively new to wargaming. I know this list is not optimal but it is a shitload of fun to play even when losing.

    Those are great points. I tend to pop my Arch Warlock on a Balewind, which makes him less hide-able/maneuverable

    I run a Warpseer and Arch Warlock in most of my games. I find the Warpseer is more survivable due to his re-roll saves ability. Also his bigger base size makes the Crown better.

    Great write up, Aiden. Can't wait to have a rat-off with you some day. I think Reagan won best sports, Seth C was a runner up.

    I've been away from the hobby for about 15 years and I just bought the Age of Sigmar starter pack (the one with Stormcast and Khorne armies). I'm really excited to get back into collecting and gaming. AoS seems like a good game for me, as I am more interested in collecting and painting models that I like rather than building a massive, cohesive army (though that would be quite satisfying as well) As a child/teen I was heavily into collecting and painting, though I never played many games. It's hard to find opponents here in the outer reaches. I look forward to being a part of the Warhammer community again!
