The Warlitter

Still in the wake of the tournament - eager for everything, not committing to anything...

Anyway. I've starting to think about the addition of a warlord to my army. Mainly because a means to fight enemy characters, at least unitl help arrives, but also easing the burden of generalcy on my seer. An item that really sticks out in my opinion is the warlitter.

Recipe for Disaster: Warpfire Tactics

I've never really liked the warpfire throwers if I were to be honest. They have an intimidating damage potential, but without mov-and-fire they are hard to use point-effecticely. However. I really like them as tools for maintaining table control, the same table control an abomination might bring to the table.

I'm looking to changing up my army a bit and will try to incorporate these deadly skaven contraptions. Let me show you how I think.

Army List Evaluation

Hi y'all.

It's time to do some self-evaluation and rate the effectiveness of my army elements. I learned a lot of this army during the tournament and can definitely say that this is a solid army list, though somewhat reliant on playing it effectively as you really need all of your precious few hard-hitters. It's also rather solid in skaven terms. Not very much carnage can be inflicted on myself and is not that prone to fleeing/panic - which I like.

Let me break it down:

Game 5: Daemons

So, back now with the last game of the tournament. I know this to be a bend or break game regarding final tournament position. A win might see me top 5 and a loss might see me falling to 10th-15th in placings. Naturally I was focused on a big win, preferring to play risky and forward and perhaps lose but hopefully play out a big win. Often I decide what my aims are for the game beforehand and play offensively/defensively respectively.

Anyway, my last match up were another Deamon army, rather similiar to the one I played earlier ( and the others in the tournament, including the overall winner ).
Knowing me and my army could evidently give these beasties a run for their money, I was confident.

Game 4: Empire

Hi again. Sorry for the cliff hanger this week regarding my battle reports, but summer and work got in the way. 
Anyway, back on the Sunday, day two, of the tournament my skaven were up for voting for Best Army amongst five others. Though I didn't win, it felt nice to get some recognition for my work. 

Behold, my skaven army in all its glory!

Game 3: Daemons

Let's start this week off with a report on game three. This time I were up against the dreaded daemons. Bloodthirster, siren song, flamers, and life-loremaster - you name it. The objectives for the game was point of despair. 2bp for having more than three standards left (general counts as 2) and 2bp for reducing the opponent to threee or less.

Time to test the backbone of the ratmen.

Game 2: High Elves

Back again for round 2. This time my opponent were a fellow club mate, though I haven't played him a lot, he sure is a nice guy and we were up for a good game.He brought his High Elves, consisting of a big Lion-block that was immune to magic and some other not so scary units, not considering okkams of course. He did not however rock the book of hoeth.

The game was witch hunt. The two first killed magic users were worth 2bp each.
The remaining 16bp was fought over by victory points as usual.
