I’m running skaventide for the first time in AoS this weekend in a 3 round tournament. This is not the typical style army I play, so I am welcoming the challenge. I love the Verminlord Warpseer model and the Stormfiends. So, I bought both and worked my list around them.
Artefacts, Command Traits & Abilities
I wanted the Arch-Warlock to amp up as many shooting units as possible. I wanted the re-roll hits for the the bombadier so I didn’t have to worry about rolling a 1 or having to burn a CP to give him re-rolls of 1’s. I also wanted maximum performance from the Stormfiends.
The alternate pick would be to make the Warpseer my general and give him master of magic.
I went with shock guantlents for the exploding 6’s to hit and because I don’t like the look of the grinderfists.
Magic, Endless & Realm Spells
Warp Lightning Vortex- At 100 points I believe this is still a great spell for potential damage and for discouraging enemy units to move within range of multiple vortex models.
Umbral Spell Portal- Lots of hordes in the meta in my area and I want to push plague through this starting on turn 1.
Prismatic Pallisade- to help control the movement of my enemy and force them to move in directions i want them to move. Also to be used as a LoS blocker for shooting and magic threats.
I’m not sure what the strengths and/or weaknesses of this list will be yet. I am not playing a traditional style skaventide list and I haven’t seen a skaventide player in my area.
Learn more movement phase tricks, learn to play a non-combat oriented/heavy armry, provide new challenges to the AoS players in my area.
