Starting Skaven warband with Rat Ogre?
« on: December 21, 2015, 06:10:36 PM »
Hi,

I'm putting together a potential Skaven list for an upcoming Mordheim campaign. I've never played them before and was wondering if starting with a Rat Ogre would be a good/bad idea... it sounds fun in theory.

Here's what I came up with. It seems sub-optimal; small warband (not a bad thing, as I have to get them painted asap!) with not much gear.

Assassin Adept with fighting claws
2x Black Skaven with halberds
2x Night Runners with swords
1x Verminkin with spear & shield
1x Rat Ogre

Never bothered with the Rat Ogre myself - always had better things to spend the money on.  With their low leadership I always try to maximise the number in the arband - in the case of skaven, quantity is better than quality!
