Chaos Battletome: Skaven – The Low-down
Hello everyone !!!
Huge preview of the Skaven Battletome by gw team.
The Allegiance Abilities
Skaven armies have four allegiance abilities that apply across their whole army, and six allegiance abilities specific to the clans.
Clan abilities are a bit fancier. The Clans Skyre and Pestilens abilities will be familiar from their appearance in last year’s General’s Handbook, and are joined by new allegiance abilities for each of the main clans. Take the Clans Verminus – you’ll be able to give a command trait to six Clawlords, giving you loads of versatility.
Skaven are getting not one but two magical lores to draw from! The first – the Lore of Ruin – is available to Grey Seers and contains all sorts of hideously effective curses.
The Clans Skryre, on the other hand, get the Lore of Warpvolt Galvanism, allowing them to supercharge nearby units or shield themselves from harm.
Will do a review of both battletome start of next week (i am not here this week end, trying to qualify for next WTC ^^)

Hello again !!
New box announced for AOS !
In Carrion Empire, two of the Mortal Realms’ most voracious factions – the skittering skaven and the ever-hungry Flesh-eater Courts – battle for supremacy amid the ruins of an ancient empire. This set promises to be a cracking way to start or expand either a Skaven or Flesh-eater Courts army, and also marks the debut of TWO brand-new Heroes – the Abhorrant Archregent and the Warlock Bombardier:
The former is a mighty mordant emperor, even more vicious – and regal – than an Abhorrant Ghoul King, while the latter is a demolitions expert armed with the Doomrocket – a weapon so powerful and dangerous it makes the Doomwheel look sensible.
This boxed set will be out soon – and we’re not stopping there. In the coming weeks, we’ll have even more exciting news on the way for Skaven and Flesh-eater Courts players…

Shadespire Skaven review
Hello everyone !!
Gw was nice enough to send us the Shadespire release, alas there was some bug in in the machine and 2 Skavens packs arrived and 0 Fireslayer warband.
So let's get started !
Warband game play
Before checking the composition of the warbands i need to talk about the main trick of the warband.
Skritch in his inspired or normal version have an action that allow him to spawn skaven grunts (Lurking,Hungering, or Festering skaven) on any starting hex ! anywhere on the map ! Off course it's a really powerful ability. The bread and butter of the skaven !
Skavens gets inspired when you have to "choose" the target of a ploy cards (your or opponents).
1) It add extra value to a ploy on an uninspired skaven !
2) Ploy not choosing skaven target have less value.
3) Offer a little bit of protection against enemy ploy.
In a nutshell Skavens are fast , numerous so you need to use this to their advantage an isolate out of position warriors.
Warband Focus: Spiteclaw’s Swarm
Hello everyone !!
Shadespire Skaven preview by WC
The skaven warband look interesting, they are fast with rez-able grunts.
The Leader action allowing the rez seem strong as you can spawn a rat anywhere and hold or contest objectives easily.
On the other hand their stats are weak and the inspired version are only small upgrade.
Will have to see all the cards to get a better understanding but playing ploys seem like the bread and butters of this team.
