Don't you need units of 20+ for clanrats? Increase these units to 24+ anyway if ythey are meant to fight

Drop one of the monk units for 10 Jezzails, and add a unit or two or slaves as blocking/screening units.

See how you go with the warp fire thowers, they can't hide any more so will be targets for a lot of shooting unless you screen them in some way.


Just what I can see, good luck with our furry friends

Things like jezzails are good to cover your flanks with fire. Your units depend on their depth for both CR and moral, so protecting your flanks is critical.

Work out how you will cover your flanks, maybe the warpfire throwers if the clanrats are on the outside of your deployment.

ok so slaves up front with clanrats ounit on flanks and plague monks blocked in. censors will move to aid any unit in trouble and and ogres will fun straight up a flank. warplocks will do there thing and the BSB will nurf shooting and flying. ii can then either advance and release the monks or stay back. flame cannons will fire hopefully act as a deterrant to fast light troops as well as destroy other horde blocks. the poison winds will hopefuly go un noticed and become a real pain in the ass preventing a vital charge of stink bombing a knight or two.

Looks very practical.

See how you go, but you have the makings of a very hard hitting army. 150 models at 1500 points will scare most opponents into a jibbing heap.

a fine tactic i've found is the ubiqutus "rat dart", a unit of 6 giant rats and 1 packmaster can really ruin an enemy unit's day, line em' up 2 in the front, and 3 deep and it'l annoy the hell out of the giant unit of state troops or marauders.

that looks like a potential Hard hitting army, but i would suggest wouldnt a Plague priest work better in the Plague list, but then i dont have the Army book on me right now, but i would drop a Engineer for the priest to give that little bit of bonuse nastiness

Swamping people in rattie goodness has a charm all its own though :)

Well done
