There's a typo in your army list where the special rule for the Skavenslaves is written as "Corned Rats" rather than "Cornered Rats". They shouldn't be the best infantry fighters that you have, that's what Chieftains and Warlords are for. Maybe add the Exalted Vermin Lord to bring the number of pages up to Giving the Plague Lord T6 would be way too much! Plague Priests have I5, same as the last book, which is 2 more than a basic trooper of their kind.

I'm fine with nerfing their WS by 1 though. But I'm fine with nerfing them a bit too. If I would add the exalted Vermin Lord, that would screw up a lot of the layout, meaning it would still be more than , so it's not really worth it ;. I consider this, the first true warhammer release since GW Wood Elves. Thanks Mathias! A few things that I've noticed: - Screaming Bell: There is no maximum regarind how many dice one can roll I suppose you simply forgot the sentence with 1 to 3 dice?

There is no rule conferring this to the monks. Also, I'd change it to stubborn because unbreakable core troops are a little bit meh Even though they are just level 1 wizards, this is just too good in my opinion. What happens to a unit of ogres or a monster with T5 that is hit by this spell? Doombolt is just like this spell simply too good for a signature spell. There is no need for a greater range, since it makes the spell even more powerful. Alternatively, it is possible to add a minimum of 1, so that the spell cannot get rid of entire units all by itself.

I did not find any points for them, though. I'd lower it's cost to and increase its T and W to 6. Now they're at 14 points, that's way too cheap. Poison should stay at 5 points per model. Also, it doesn't really benefit from its stubborn special rule with Ld 6. Theredore, I'd increase its Ld to 8 and lower the cost to points. I still consider it to be too strong Maybe lowering the wounds to 5 would be a good idea? These are just my opinions and rules I'd change. Apart from these points I really like the book.

Especially that Grey Seers now have Ld 6, which gives Warlords their purpose again. Again thank you for your work!

Lowered the range to 12", hits to D3. Now it's more of a fluffy bonus. Second version is twice as difficult to cast, so I don't see what the problem is there, it's the same with many official lores. I want to get in some playtest results before making them any cheaper than that. Because I can add an exception to that, poisoned rocks does not make any sense anyway. Will lower it to Thanks for the feedback! Great Mathias! Thank you! Will you do any additional updates to this 8th edition?

I would like it if you left it as is, but we will see. I'll download this immediately, thanks again for the hard work! Do you mean the Skaven book, other army books, or the game in general?

I'm currently planning on remaking all 8th ed books to include more background and units and balance them out where necessary. Also for Blood Bowl: Fatties and Judges. Do you have anywhere I can go to and read about the lore? Any links? Not that much info though. Screaming Bell ogre is M5 because they will be in a unit with M5, but I can change it to 6 to be consistent with other rat ogres.

Nice work Mathias! I consider that Rat Wolfs should be like "Monstruous Arcanum" same atrributes and skills. What do you think? Of course. But maybe you could change the name of this unit such us: "Mastin Rats" in order to make difference with "Wolf Rats" of Monstrous Arcanum Book. Which you consider that? Not really, the fluff and art is based on the Wolf Rats from Monstrous Arcanum.

If you want to use those rules for your Wolf Rat models instead, then just go ahead and do so. I agree to Miguel. Change the name and a little the fluff for no confrontation with Monstrous Arcanum rules. Those that are truly lupine are kept in spiked cages and fed on their own dead, so that when they are finally unleashed into the outside world they attack anything in their path in a bloody rage. Used in packs led by Skaven animal handlers, these horrible beasts are known for their remorselessness in combat.

Physique: Wolf-rats are about the same size and build as one of the great wolves of the Old World, and may be mistaken for wolves at a distance. Close up, though, their origins become clear. They have long, rat-like tails. Their heads arc almost entirely ratllke, except that the snout is broader and more powerful, accommodating a fearsome array of sharp teeth.

Wolf-rats are generally brown or g. Alignment: Horribly mutated and definitely Chaotic. Base Size: 25 x 50mm". Makes it less unreliable and also means that a Wargor isn't mandatory for every beastman army. Special Characters that modify Beastman Ambush instead modify the Ambushers rule. They also become Fast Cavalry that start with a Hand Weapon and have the exact same list of options as the Centaurs from your Albion dex. They may replace their Great Weapon with a spear and shield for free. Wargors and Beastlords can also purchase a Razorgor to ride.

I think that the "Age of Sigmar" is one of the beste thing that ever happened to Warhammer Fantasy. I love your work. Haha, thanks. Only issues with redoing the other 8th ed books is that it will be difficult to make them look better in terms in graphic design since I work with zero budget, and don't have access to GW's original documents. But you can look forward to having extended background sections for all books, as well as more fluff for each unit none of that squeezing 4 units in on 2 pages stuff that some 8th ed books have.

To my opinion Skaven ally Ld to important. Reconsidered all the test with 3 dices. If they have a negative Ld rule as well as a positive Ld rule, then they really just take each other out, and don't really add anything. If also results in Skavenslaves had just as good a Ld as Clanrats, which is something I wanted to avoid.

Mathias, I absolutely love your work. The production of your books is amazing I'm a guy that really needs hard copies of books my well thumbed Nippon and Araby ones will attest that!

I might do simple game-booklets for that in the future. Otherwise, you could easily just copy the rules you need into a work doc and print it out for use in your games :. The paragraph on page 13 had some rows mixed up, fixed it now, and some repeated sub-paragraphs have been fixed recently. Are there any contradictions and spelling mistakes in particular you could point out so I could fix those too? Proofreaders are much appreciated :. Hence I decided to update the book myself. Mathias, Let me start by echoing the great work you did here.

I see a nice balance between buff and nerf that is common in book updates that help balance the game. That being said, I am curious if making the Screaming Bell and Plague Furnace chariots was for simplicity or intentional.

As a chariot, these alters cannot march and slow down the unit. Like wise the units cannot swiftstride with the chariot which would have been wrong anyway for these devices. Great job! Is it possible that you upload a version with all the changes in it. Hi Mathias, By increasing the war machines toughness to 7 this exposes them to the screaming bell's deafening peals attack

The Skaven army is for people who like randomness, silliness and fantastic models, but don't think that liking those things should preclude you from winning. The current rules set favors large blocks of infantry, which the Skaven have in spades. They also have a selection of silly rules one of which makes all warpstone attacks count as magic, great for trolling all-ethereal bastards , random abilities and powerful shooting. Plus, you can shoot at enemies in combat against your Slaves units. Note: Under the current edition, named characters tend to be overpriced; you can pretty easily emulate most named characters from scratch and save yourself some points. That said, a few named characters do have abilities and wargear or wargear combos unique to them, so if you absolutely need to have them, go ahead.


Skaven Army Book

An Army Book in the Warhammer Fantasy tabletop wargame, is a rules supplement containing information concerning a particular army, environment, or worldwide campaign. Army Books for particular armies were introduced for the fourth edition of the game prior to that all armies were included in the main rulebook. The sixth edition rendered these obsolete. Until superseded by newer versions, the 6th edition and later books remain valid for the newer editions of Warhammer. Games Workshop has also released various expansions over the years, including a siege rules supplement and campaign expansions.
