rudra34 Posted January 19, 2015 Report Share Posted January 19, 2015 Got the rats out for the first time in a long while last night for a 2400 game against Raindog. Needless to say his cheaty elves won the day (with a bit of help from my poor rolling and exploding cannon), but it gave me a chance to test a few things out. This is the list I am working with. Lords - 728 Warlord - Warlitter, Talisman of Preservation, Weeping Blade, Potion of Strength, Enchanted Shield Verminlord Deceiver Heroes - 369 Chieftain - BSB, Biting Blade, Dragonhelm, Shield Plague Priest - Level 2, Dispell Scroll, Flail Plague Priest - Plague Censor, Potion of Foolhardiness Core - 734 40 Clanrats - Shields, Full Command 40 Clanrats - Shields, Full Command 50 Slaves - Musician 50 Slaves - Musician Special - 216 6 Gutter Runners - Slings, Poison 6 Gutter Runners - Slings, Poison Rare - 340 Warplightning Cannon Hellpit Abomination - Warpstone Spikes I managed a great first turn against the elves, but failed all ward saves with my verminlord bringing him down by the second turn. Then my cannon blew up...then I failed to dispel fiery convo...it was pretty ugly from there on out. The point is, I actually like this list quite a bit. In a different match up, or if I had played less aggressively, I think it would work out nicely. As for the verminlord, I am sold (even though it died so early in this game!). It functions very similarly to a greater daemon, and has some amazing tricks up it's sleeve. Being able to skitterleap a monster of that size anywhere on the battlefield or out of risky combats, is awesome. He will dominate against armies with no shooting, but must be played carefully otherwise. His shooting attack will wreck hordes, and if he gets the right combination of spells then he will be a real headache for your opponent. I look forward to more games, and to actually getting the model...heh. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
