I was thinking about random Skaven unit compositions and this one sorta came to me. I know that the unit is fairly poor, and won't win all that often, but i just wanted to know how you'd react if it beat you in a CC...

Warlord
The Gouger
Enchanted Shield
Warpstone Amulet
Heavy Armour

Chieftain
BSB
Sacred Standard of the Horned Rat
Heavy Armour

30 Clanrat Saves
Musician

Total Cost: 181+149+64 = 394
The unit enters combat with +6 CR plus whatever damage the Warlord can inflict with The Gouger, and anything the Slaves do is considered bad luck on the other players part...

You can't take the warlord for 2 reasons.
1. 2 item of magic armour.
2. You have a magical suit of armour and a normal suit of armour.


Also, where is the +6 combat resolution from?

What I see is:
3 ranks + standard + ountumber
= 5

You can do the same with stormvermin but can give them the war banner
3 ranks, outnumber, standard, warbanner, extra outnumber from bsb(banner of swarm), bsb bonus

+8 static res

Other than that you just have a basic unit with two chars in it, nothing special.

Where do you see 2 suits of armor? I see heavy armor + enchanted shield, which is perfectly legal.
Battle Standard grants +1 CR.

He's got a mind like a steel trap. By which I mean it can only hold one idea at a time;
it latches on to the first idea to come along, good or bad; and it takes strenuous effort with a crowbar to make it let go.

Yup, a fighty character + bsb in a fully ranked unit. Nothing new here, should work allright especially if you can entice/funnel opponent to actually fight it in combat. I'd rather have at least clanrats (if not stormvermin) as the ranked unit for these as with ws3 and 4+ save in cc, they are less combat res for the opponent via casualties. Slaves work better minimum sizeds throw-away units and you usually don't wan't to join characters to them unless the situation demands it.

@Mekboy - i forgot that slaves couldn't take a standard when i wrote the +6 in. so, yeah, it is a +5... Enchanted Shield is Magic Armour, while the Warpstone Amulet is a Talisman..

@cypher & Chaoslord - i know its nothing special or new, i was just wondering how you'd react if beaten in combat by a slaves unit. i don't think i'd put a character in a unit of slaves since its a virtual death sentence for them. the only time i would is as you said, if the situation demanded it, but at 2pts a model they're not exactly a highly-prized unit so i can't really think of a situation where i would throw away a character to defend something so rubbish...
and, if i take a Warlord instead of a Grey Seer, it usually leads a unit of Stormvermin and the BSB is in a unit of Clanrats


thinking about it though, it wouldn't really be annoying being beaten by that unit since the Warlord provides the killing power the Slaves clearly lack, and the BSB makes them stay around a little longer than normal

Umm, I would say that's the way it is with zombies, remove some and then Invoc some more? ;-)
