    hey guys, we started a league with the 6th Edition. I hope you guys remember the good old times and can give me some tips against skaven.
    Until now I got a draw vs VC and got massacred by ogres. So I hardly need a win soon.
    I am in vacation at the moment so I don't have an army book right now but my list would be kind of this:

    -Slann, gen. 4, 5+ ward safe for the unit, PoTepok, diadem of power
    -skink priest, cube of darkness
    -skink priest, scout, scroll
    -skink priest, scout, scroll

    -10 skink scout, blowpipes
    -10 skink jav / shield
    -10 skink jav / shield
    -16 saurus warrior, full command with speers

    -6 chameleon skinks
    -3 terrasons
    -6 saurus Cav., full command, huanchi totem

    -3x salamander
    -3x salamander

    So the slann and the priests should raise hell on the skaven with damage spells.
    Chameleons are there for a warp canon, scout skinks for support and the terradons against jizzles.
    Salamander should burn a lot of skaven and the cav is a hard hitting unit.
    The saurus block should win CC against skaven and with a 5+ wardsave and skinks in front it should be able to get to CC

    I think it's round about 2k but I need the book to say that exactly.
    What do you think? Any tips are very welcome :)

    An interesting list. I like to see the lack of hordes, as I don’t like to see hordes unless they are of expendable quantity troops like Skinks, because I believe they are cumbersome and expensive, and I hate how GW really advocated the use of them in 8th. I can’t offer you much in terms of tactics because I joined the Warhammer community in 7th Ed, but I can provide you with a link to a website that has PDFs of all army books in existence, so you can look at a 6th Ed book even on holiday:

    Hope this helps!
