    Next up Skaven.
    Against the same player I beat when he was using Tomb Kings - I know that Skaven are a lot stronger, and this is his favourite army, so I am not expecting a repeat win!
    Was thinking of some faster moving units (cold ones, terradons, kroxigor), possibly a slann, but then slow moving TG required IMO. Salamanders will make a return to hopefully fry some rats.
    While the 6th Ed army book doesn't include some of the nastier monsters, I believe they may have been added via the magazine/pdf.
    Any other suggestions?

    Hi Gary,

    I am also playing the 6th edition with some friends.
    I guess that it is quite rare to find people still playing the 6th. (the best edition)

    When it comes to skaven I am generally worried by ratlings....
    However, since they usually need to have large units, it might be useful to exploit some scout skinks to run behind their line and do some damage from there. Salamanders even better!
    You could also deploy the jungle swarm to block a unit particularly numberous or dangerous to gain some extra turns for magic.
    Have you already played the game?

    @blueslevin yes I have played the game, and ended up as a minor victory for the skaven.

    Fun part was killing 6 to 8 guns of some sort sat on a hill with a comet of cassandora!

    I've done a batrep in that section of the forum.
