so far the advice ive recieved here has been gold... so big thanks for help on previous posts.
I was challenged by a skaven player to a 2500 pt game tomorrow. its not a league or tourney or anything, but bragging rights may be involved. anyway, i have a ton of models to work with, the only ones i dont have handy are scrap launchers and maneaters. (im working on a ME unit but its still in progress and no where near done for tomorrow)
the skaven player LOVES his warp lightning, and likes to bring things like WLC and doom wheels. i figure the best counter for that, is buffs via GM, a hellheart to wreck a magic phase, and ironblasters to target and take down his machines.
anyway, here is the list: if anyone has lots of EXP fighting skaven and can throw me some pointers would be much apreciated. cheers.
L: slaughtermaster, lvl 4, channeling staff, glittering scales, fencers blades, RRoR = 385
H: bruiser, GW, hev armor, BSB, runemaw = 205
H: firebelly, hellheart, GW = 179
C: 12 ogres, IF, FC = 414
C:5 ironguts, = 215
S: 4 mournfangs, HA, IF, standard, dragonhide banner = 340
S: 4 leadbelchers = 172
R: thundertusk = 250
R: ironblaster = 170
R: ironblaster = 170
Lords = 385
Heros = 384
Core = 629
Special = 512
Rare = 590
my initial idea for tatic to anchor the middle with the bulls, BSB attached, and the SM goes here as well to buff and do his thing. the firebelly joins the IG, and will deploy on a flank. his job is to lead the IG on a warmachine/ tougher unit hunt. or aid the bulls if they need it.
the MFC and TT deploy side by side or otherwise close and take the other flank. essentially they want to do the same things as the IG - and meet them in the middle. (there is a running wager between the IG and MFc on who is "fattest")
other then that, the IB deploy backwards with the best LOS i can give them and let them loose, while the leadies will advance and provide "cover fire" for the advancing bulls. i expect the leadies to get zapped and otherwise massacared right away (but that serves my purpose as those are shots NOT going into the MFC or bulls)
anyway advise on anything here is welcome, since ive only played 1 game vrs skaven and am sort of going on instinct.
