I like him. He's a nice centerpiece without being over the top.

How are vermin lords game wise? I think there's almost always better choices, so they rarely make an appearance. But I'm wondering if part of it is that no-one takes them, so no-one knows how to play with them.

I have horrible memories from long ago of one killing, in order, my elite infantry, my Lord and my Dragon. D3 wounds per strike was brutal. On the other hand, I took an End Times one out with a single Beast of Nurgle!

Will the VL be involved?

I think so!

The rules aren't so hot, especially against any shooting armies - its a very expensive unit with little protection. However, my opponents being Vampire Counts, I think I can make it work. The key bit is keeping him out of tricky combats - using Slave screens is crucial.

I'm considering taking an Eshin themed force (Sniktch and all) and using the Eshin ET rules for my model.

well, tricky combats and abusing slaves sounds like skaven allright. They're sneaky little critters... So you should be good to go. :)

I love the thematic possibilities skaven have, and that most of their thematic lists are perhaps not the most competitive but at a minimum viable lists. Let us know how it goes.

The Verminlord Deceivers are have AP, poison and a shooting attack with number of shot equal to the target units rank. Also are -1 to hit and can cast Skitterleap on themselves (and re-roll failed attempts to cast).

That sounds useful.

Bit of an update:

The battle went well - even though the Undead overwhelmed me with magic I was able to make a solid push with my Stormvermin. The got tied up with Kemmler, who caskaded, killing most of my dudes, while remaining unscathed himself. I got carried by the Abomination, which came back from the dead with full 6 wounds and finished off the Grave Guards.

Don't mind the LEGO fire truck :lol:

I'm painting some Skryre guys right now, for the next battle. Here's the Doomwheels:

Instant Karma!

That’s a cheeky effort, even by Skryre standards!

These look up to your usual high level RE.

That looks like an epic battle. Though it's always hard to tell with skaven how many points there actually are in the army based on the number of models... ;)

Interesting that skaven got overwhelmed by magic. Usually, it's the skaven magic that's the big worry.

I wonder what rules it has. There's probably explosions involved if it's Skyre stuff...

The doomwheels look great, as usual. If anything, they're a bit too clean ;) I saw a post somewhere a while ago, where doomwheel racing was mentioned as a spectator sport. These would definitely fit in there ;)

All those units in the bottom of the picture are Slaves of course :lol: It was 2400ish points - Skryre battle will be next, though there is no set date yet. Whether the Fire Truck will be present is to be determined :wink:

I'm painting the weapon teams and some globadiers right now, will post them tomorrow probably.
