Warhammer Experiment X: My Equinox list....

Well here it is....  I'd have to say that Antony was the "warmest" from the numerous speculators.



Grey seer - Screaming bell, power scroll, fencers blades, skalm - 540
Chieftain, Battle Standard. Great weapon 74
Warlock engineer, lvl1, dispel scroll - 90
Warlock engineer, lvl1, doom rocket - 95
Assassin - sword of anti-heroes, other tricksters shard, dragon bane gem. 170
Assassin - weeping blade, potion of strength. 170
35 storm vermin, full command. Storm banner. doom flyer, 375
40 skaven slaves, musician, paw leader - 86
40 skaven slaves, musician, paw leader - 86
41 skaven slaves, musician, 84
5 giant rats 1 pack leader - 23
5 giant rats 1 pack leader - 23
2 rat swarms 50
2 rat swarms 50
8 gutter runners, poison and slings - 144
Warp lighting cannon – 90
Hell Pit Abomination, Warpstone spikes – 250

Can any arsehole take Skaven and podium?  Lets find out.




Firstly I'd just like to add that I have never taken command of a Skaven army before, and I have only ever played against Skaven twice....once against Luke Brimblecombe and once against Henry Poor (both garage games).  Furthermore, I do not plan to have any practise games between now and the tournament, thus not modifying the component of "any arsehole take Skaven and podium"...this experiment will be valid and reliable.

Will there be tears or will it be something like this....?

"We're dicks! We're reckless, arrogant, stupid dicks. And the Film Actors Guild are pussies. And Kim Jong Il is an asshole. Pussies don't like dicks, because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes: assholes who just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is: they fuck too much or fuck when it isn't appropriate — and it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes, pussies can be so full of shit that they become assholes themselves... because pussies are an inch and half away from ass holes. I don't know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don't let us fuck this asshole, we're going to have our dicks and pussies all covered in shit!"

  1. Is that the exact list from that thread at Pete's place? I was tempted to take it just to annoy whoever posted it in the first instance. (In the end, I went for a fluffier one. The HPA is called bubbles)

    1. Yep, it's the exact one...you can blame James B for perking my interest...is this filth? TBH I spoke to Henry before subbing the list and I said "What lore do the casters even take?" lol!

  2. Things to watch out for: The Seer gets no look out sir, so can get done by all the spells other chars have immunity from in this comp pack. You will forget to ring the bell in magic phases. Write yourself a reminder. And get the FAQ, it is about an army book long, and changes everything.

    1. Should you be helping me? A true Skaven player should be ready to stab me in the back when I'm at my weakest....

  3. Ben Johnson is that you? A very strong army that UK tourneys show works well. It'll be interesting to see how they deal with a meta that's shifting away from sweet sweet dreaded 13th targets.

  4. My bet is he doesn't get to 6 turns and spends most of the time looking at the book referencing the stupid number of tables and rules that apply to skaven only. But if you can pull it off I will bow down to your unholy power and confirm to Nick that Skavem are cheese. J

    1. Sorry it was easier to cut and paste the one off the net than do the four extra clicks required to get my edit (with correct name) from my Warhammer folder....

  6. Hello Skaven. Goodbye dignity.

    Just goes to show the depths that a person (you) will go to to podium.

    1. I take it that you no longer want to play me Antony? Don't worry I'll still be crying...playing Skaven will be like wanking over too much porn when single - good for a while but always ending in hollow, lonely tears....

  7. Just remember that when things get desperate you can always use your awesome tactical skillz by backing into a corner and pointing the rear of the bell unit out so all your characters are safe while some poor hopeless unit has to wade through ranks and ranks of unbreakable rats.

    3. don't even need to do that Joel, with potion of strength weeping blades/sword of anti heroes impact hits and massive res you can clean out most units in a round in combat anyway!

  8. Quoting team America and posting a rats arsehole? What can go wrong...

  9. Sorry....one correction....I did play one Skaven player at a tournament and it was James B with his Skaven for a draw....

  10. Man, you must really want to win battle of the blogs!

  11. I thought James had already proved this? (joke)

    If we play it'll be the fourth or fifth time I'll play this list and its a pain to play against. I do recommend printing out the cheat sheet that was on the Baddice website http://baddice.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1985
